High River United Church of High River, Alberta

Blessings to Teachers, Students & Families & More

We hold in our prayers

the families in our community (and all around the world) who are navigating back-to-school. Let us surround them with the love and blessings of our congregation as they face all the changes and challenges of returning to school even as the young people are excited to get back to classes and friends. We especially think of the kindergarten children who are starting school for the first time in this unusual time.


University students who are starting classes on-line this week, and finding new ways of learning. We especially think of those who are in their first year and making this         transition in the midst of the strangeness of this time. May the learning be more than they may imagine right now.


We continue hold in our prayers and love:

All those medical staff who are offering such good care in the midst of the challenges of the pandemic. All medical researchers who are going above and beyond to find treatments and vaccines for COVID-19


All those who are grieving in our community (and beyond) and all those who are having surgery & other treatments. May you know God’s love enfolding you.


All those around the world who are ill, who are grieving the death of loved ones, and whose lives have been turned upside down by this pandemic.


God is with us in this fractured time, offering wisdom, insight and blessing in ways we may not be able to see right now, but which will come clearer along the way.  Let us be open to the Spirit's movement in our midst so that we may be a blessing for each other day by day.
