Want to become a Member?

Want to be Highlands United Church Member Info day October 8th 2023

On the last Sunday of the Theological Banquet series we will welcome new members into the church community. If you are feeling like you'd like to be that little bit more connected than you are now then consider becoming a full fledged member. Will and Julie will host a membership class after church on Sunday October 8th (1.5 - 2 hours) in which you will learn about the history, convictions and life of the United Church of Canada. You'll get some reading material and then on the 29th we'll have a ceremony during worship.

Please email Will or Julie if you are interested or have questions. Thanks!
