90 ago the United Church of Canada was formed by an act of the Canadian parliament. Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregationalist churches decided to come together as one national church. Each faith’s similarities made it possible to cooperate as one denomination to better serve the needs of the vast young country of Canada.
The first service was held on June 10, 1925 at 10:30 am. That is why United Churches in every time zone across Canada will celebrate their presence in their communities at that time and day.
Agassiz United grew out of the Geneva Presbyterian and Agassiz Methodist churches whose activities both dated back to the 1890’s. Agassiz United celebrated 100 years in 2003.
Everyone is invited to join the congregation for bell ringing and birthday cake at the party in the church parking lot at 6860 #7 Hwy.
