COVID-19 Response

 

Penticton United Church has closed its building and suspended in-person worship as we all try to do our part to reduce the risks and transmission of COVID-19. In doing this, we have a lot of compassion for everyone who is impacted by such a decision. Community and connection are important to us as a faith community and for a healthy community.

Now is the time to stay in connection with your friends and family. Call your neighbours. Check in on each other. And be gentle with yourself. Stressful times impact us in ways we might not even be aware of.

Please remember that your financial support for our ministry is still critically important. You can drop off your donations, join (even in the short-term) the pre-Authorized Remittance program, or Donate Online.

There are a number of things we have put in place to help support our congregation and wider community. As we are all uncertain about the potential timing for these changes, please check back regularly for updates.

Remember, you are not alone, we live in God’s world, thanks be to God.
