Prayer shawls are knitted and crocheted with compassion and care. Prayer shawl recipients can be high school graduates, new members to the church, the newly baptized, hospital patients or anyone in need of a warm hug. A prayer shawl is given as a gift to remind the recipient of God’s love and care, and the loving support of our congregation.
Membership classes are open to anyone who is already a member, is considering being a member or is just interested in exploring their faith with other seekers. If you would like to take part in an upcoming class please contact the church office.
Join the Prayer Group at First United, 8:30 a.m. every Wednesday in the chapel for a short reading, scripture and prayers for persons with concerns, ill health or “just because”.
Prayer Requests may be left at the church office at 306-773-9353 or with Fran at 306-773-0920.
All are welcome to attend.
GIVE A RIDE
If you are willing to offer rides to worship services on Sunday mornings, or to other church events, or if you know of anyone in need of transportation, call the church office at 306-773-9353 and we will seek to make arrangements.
At First United Church, we have a volunteer who provides pastoral care to members of our congregation who are admitted to the local hospital.
If you would like to be visited while in the hospital please be sure to indicate this at the time of admission. Hospital staff will ask you questions as they fill out a Spiritual Care Consent Form. When they ask if your presence in the hospital can be disclosed to clergy, please respond, “Yes.” If you would like a visit from the minister, please let our volunteer know and Annette will visit you as soon as she is available.
