Not from Balzac?

Neither are all of us. We call Calgary, Crossfield, Airdrie, Cochrane, Irricana and Balzac home.

Nervous about that first time walking through the door?

We park in a field behind the church. Greeters are at the door to hand you a bulletin outlining the order of the service. You enter the coat room first and there is an open archway to the worship area. Refreshments following the service are in a room attached to the sanctuary. From this room there is a hallway which leads to the washrooms, nursery, choir room and stairs to sunday school.

Congregational mix?

Pretty typical UC with a strong contingent of older people who are the bedrock of our church; some with four generations of family attending. Fair amount of families with young kids and a few with teenagers. A dearth of young adults. But you could change that.

Got Kids?

We have a nursery for the youngest children. The older kids attend the first part of the service before heading up to an all ages sunday school group of between 6 and 15 kids. The congregation is very tolerant of toddler noise and restlessness, kids dancing in the aisles and general kid mayhem. Rev Rita genuinely loves all that the kids contribute and welcomes them to the communion table.

Music

We have an active choir (with drums) that practices after refreshments after the service. Special music includes country gospel and occasional concerts. Lee our choir director has asked God to send her just one more tenor. You could be the answer to prayer.

Dress code

Casual.
