Pacific Mountain United Church Women (UCW)

Celebrating 60 years of Fellowship and Service!

The United Church Women (UCW) is an organization within the United Church of Canada. We welcome all women in our church, and this year, 2022, United Church Women across Canada are celebrating our organization's 60th Anniversary!

Regional and National Connections

On this page you will find UCW activities, news and information from both the Pacific Mountain UCW and the National UCW. Enjoy learning about the life and work of UCW! If you need further information on any topic, you are welcome to contact our President or Secretary. This page should be helpful and easy to use. Please share its existence with women in your congregation. Churches do not need to have a UCW 'group' to share this information. Many women stay connected to UCW news for community and fellowship. All are welcome!

Purpose

To unite women of the Community of Faith for the total mission of the church and to provide a means through which we may express our loyalty and devotion to Jesus Christ in Christian witness, study, fellowship, and service.

Vision

As women of faith,
We believe in nurturing Christian spirituality
by reaching out
through commitment and devotion
to all God’s people
in the promotion of truth, justice, peace,
caring, and respect
for all throughout the earth, God’s world;
We believe in honouring God the Creator,
and loving others through generous giving
and joyful living;
And we believe in affirming and
strengthening ourselves
both individually and together
through creative study, prayer, and action.

Mission

Love God
Foster Christian commitment, faithfulness, and spirituality.
Promote respect and love for all God’s creation.

UCW Handbook

Download the UCW Handbook here. It should be noted that with a few exceptions the UCW Handbook is to give Members guidelines and suggestions for the Unit, and not how things must be done.

Closing Prayer

And now, go with us, God into the days ahead.
Strengthen us for peace.
Give us wisdom, keep us humble, and may we live and work together,
And so striving, build a new and better world for tomorrow. Amen.
