High River United Church of High River, Alberta

Sunday Morning Worship returns to Zoom
Due to the rapid and easy transmission of the omicron variant, we will be returning to Zoom worship at 10:00 am on Sundays until it is safe to return to in person worship.

Sunday - December 26  - no service by Zoom or in-person. Please enjoy our Christmas messages found under Worship: Sermons in Print and Video

Sunday - January 2 - service by Zoom at 10:00 am.  Please contact the church office for information about joining us on Zoom.


Why have we made this decision? 

Due to the rapid and easy transmission of the Omicron variant, the HRUC Council has made the difficult decision to not proceed with the two Christmas Eve services we had planned.  We do not want to become a super-spreader event, which can easily happen.  We join you in feeling the sadness of this decision, because we had hoped for this opportunity to share Christmas Eve in-person.   

In addition to our own concerns, we received this message from the Chinook Winds Region of The United Church of Canada:
            Dr David Keegan, a committed United Church member, Alberta doctor and professor at the University of Calgary, reached out to Chinook Winds Region to offer some wisdom and guidance for the church. He is calling on the United Church in Western Canada to be leaders in the fight against Omicron.  He said, “I suggest that The United Church of Canada has the opportunity to save many lives, prevent hospital admissions and long-term disability, and to focus on the social justice and life orientation of Jesus by switching to online services for Christmas/Christmas Eve. Let’s give the gift of life this Christmas.

Treena Duncan, Executive Minister for our region, adds: This pandemic has gone on for longer than any of us could have ever imagined.  We are all tired of restrictions and we just want things to go back to ‘normal.’ But we are led by one who calls us into difficult choices and walks with us through these challenging times.
