GROW Project Receives Calgary Foundation Grant

It is with great delight that the Green Sanctuary Committee announces that the GROW Project is the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Calgary Foundation for a full year of funding. The GROW Project uses horticultural therapy to help people living with disabilities to grow, heal and sustain active lives within the larger community. The goal is to use these funds to solidly establish the GROW Project within the UCC community, becoming part the culture of outreach and community of the Church, all the while working to integrate those marginalized within our society.
The group cherishes time in the garden and being part of the community of the Church. So should you be free one Tuesday morning, come and join the group as they toil in the front garden, make a salad for their snack and enjoy each other’s company.

Food BankFood Bank Donations

Our Caring Team is always looking for food to fill up the food box located next to the door to Panabaker Hall. The food that you donate is used for individuals or families who come to UCC looking for something to eat. Occasionally people who ask for assistance have access to a microwave or oven are given meals from the freezer that the Caring Cooking Connection provides. For individuals living on the street, the best option is food that is easily opened and can be eaten with fingers or a plastic utensil. It could be package of tuna and crackers or soup and chili with a pull off lid. Any extra food that is not used will be taken to the local food bank. Pet food is also welcome. There is also a pet food box under the food bank table. Questions? Please contact the Caring Team.

Giving.ChurchillA Transition Year of Pledging

This year’s pledging of financial support for our church will be done in two steps, to create a bridge from calendar year to church year pledging. It’s to bring our pledge year in line with our budget year.

  • First, in October, we’ll ask you to step up to make a pledge for the first seven months of 2016, or January to July.
  • Second, in March, we’ll ask you to step up to a pledge for the entire church year of August, 2016 to July, 2017.
  • There will be two Pledge Sundays, when you are asked to come prepared to make your pledge, and there will be special food to celebrate the day. The Pledge Sundays will be October 25, 2015 and March 6, 2016.

Thank you all for your financial support for our beloved community.



Welcome from Our Minister

A Unitarian Universalist and Evangelical Christian on a Plane

What do Unitarians believe if we don't follow one set of doctrines or religious teachings? Here is a simple, heartwarming, and eloquent story that will open your eyes to the Unitarian Universalist tradition - a religion that is spiritual, principled, and welcoming to all beliefs, colours, creeds, and gender orientations. Courtesy of Rev. Tandi Rogers on the occasion of Samaya Oakley's ordination in Vancouver, BC. Samaya was our intern minister here in Calgary in 2012-2013.
