KUC’s weekend of celebration that began yesterday with our “Festival on Fourth” Block Party continued this morning with worship with guest preacher Rev. Keith Simmonds, president of B.C. Conference of the United Church (and currently in ministry with the congregation of Duncan United), followed by a picnic lunch.
Key pentecost celebrations of KUC alive with the flames of faith were of our music, the completion of our renovation and housing project “429 St. Paul” and celebration of the 429 team, the 20 year celebration of being an affirming congregation and a celebration of our undertaking to be a Centre for Community and Spiritual Discovery for the wider community.
