What makes us who we are…

Known for its outstanding music, outreach into the community, and warm welcome to all who enters its doors, Penticton United Church is proud to call the corner of Main Street and Eckhardt Avenue home. Some call us “Big Blue” for our distinctive blue colour, but that is all that is blue about us! We are a joy-filled community that values worship with strong music and God’s delight offered through scripture and preaching.
Our fellowship time following worship is filled with chatter as we share the news of the week and express our joys and concerns with one another. throughout the week we gather for study, fellowship, outreach, and support to one another. We value the times we share food and fellowship, all the while growing in faith.
