Agassiz United Church celebrates 110 years of service

Special service held this Sunday to celebrate historic church

A special service will be held on Sunday, Oct. 27, to commemorate Agassiz United Church’s 110th anniversary.

The church was the Presbyterian Church from 1903 until 1925 when it became the United Church and still serves the Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs communities today.

Agassiz United Church has been celebrating its anniversary with a series of “Back to Church Sundays” for the month of October. The special services started with World Wide Communion on Oct. 6, then a Thanksgiving Celebration of Music and Song on Oct. 13 and will culminate with the 110th Anniversary Service on Oct. 27.

The anniversary service starts at 10:30 a.m. and is followed by a lunch and visiting in the church hall. Everyone is invited to attend.
