Our Story

Faith Fellowship Family

Faith, Fellowship, Family

We are a vibrant and diverse church, part of the United Church of Canada, dedicated to building a community of faith that fosters spiritual growth, loving relationships, welcome, diversity, and inclusivity.  By who we are and what we do, we seek to serve God, community and each other.  Palgrave United Church asks important questions of faith in an open and dynamic environment where people are encouraged to explore deepening relationship with God.  The United Church Song of Faith from 2006 provides language that helps frame these questions:  “God is Holy Mystery, beyond complete knowledge, above perfect description… Nothing exists that does not find its source in God.”  In order to better appreciate what we believe you can link to the United Church of Canada Faith Statements page at https://www.united-church.ca/community-faith/welcome-united-church-canada/faith-statements

Palgrave United Church is happy to welcome Dyanne Marlok as our student Minister for this up coming year. Dyanne is a student in Diaconal Ministry at Centre for Christian Studies (CCS). She is also taking theological courses at St. Andrew’s College in Saskatchewan. She retired as a Medical Laboratory Technologist in September 2019. Dyanne lives with her husband Glen, son Carling, and daughter Miranda. At the moment if you were to visit Dyanne’s home you would see 1 turtle (Franklin), 2 dogs (Mickey and Sassy), and 14 birds.

We look forward to seeing you.

 

Sunday Learning

We welcome children of all ages to engage in learning.  In a safe and caring environment, we base our learning on progressive values of radical hospitality grounded in the message of love for other that informs our understanding of Jesus.

Justice and Outreach

In all we do at Palgrave United Church we are guided by the biblical directive of Micah 6:8.  What does God require of us?  To seek justice, love kindness, and walk humbly.  We believe that living this mission leads us to speak up, speak out, and act, both individually and collectively.

Palgrave United Community Kitchen

As part of our commitment to community, Palgrave United Church founded the Palgrave United Community Kitchen; the first certified community kitchen in Peel Region.  It’s mission is to educate people on the importance of local sustainable healthy food opportunities in Peel through providing space, services, resources, and events.
