High River United Church of High River, Alberta

A Message to Connect - April 2, 2020

Grace & Peace to everyone connected with High River United, (and friends & family across the province & country),


Today’s scripture speaks of the leaves of the tree of life which are for the healing of the nations. (Revelations 22:2),   I think of all of the medicines that come from plants, that bring us healing in so many ways,  and I pray today for all those researchers who are looking for the anti-viral medicines and vaccines that will help us with COVID-19.


We are working harder than ever at the church office – our days are full!  Updating address and phone lists, making phone calls to check on people, connecting those who need grocery deliveries with those who can do that, setting up Zoom connections for adults, youth and children. The learning curve is high – but we are so grateful to have the technology that allows us to connect.

We had great fun with Youth Group by Zoom this week as well as a Drop In-Pop In and Chat by Zoom. Thank you, Zoom!!!!


We will have Zoom worship for Holy Week: 

If you wish to be part of this, please connect with us via the contact page on this website.

Palm Sunday at 10:00 am –  

Have something you can wave for our “palm parade.”


Maundy Thursday from 7:00 to 7:30 pm 

Wash your hands before joining the call & remember Jesus washing everyone’s feet.

Please have a small glass of juice and a piece of bread or cracker ready so we can share communion as the body of Christ.


Good Friday from 10:00 to 10:30 am 

 We will go very gently at Good Friday this year because of the situation, but we still want to worship this day.

 Please have a rock or a teddy bear or a shawl or a cross or something else that

 you can hold on to or wrap around you that grounds you and brings you comfort.


Easter Sunday at 10:00 am – see instructions below for Sundays.

Please dress up, in colourful clothing if you wish. Dress up to make this day special.


Blessings to each and every one of you.

Rev. Susan & Rev. David
