Whitehorse United is a very active congregation with many opportunities for fun, fellowship and service.
There are a number of committees and organisations within our church:
Ministry and Personnel
Social Justice - 'WUC in the World'
Joyful Noise (Sunday School)
Families with young children (newborn to 5 years old), can enjoy a short child-centred worship service on Sundays at 9:30 am. These services are approximately 20 minutes of action songs, bible stories, prayers, and of course SNACKS!
Joyful Noise is the name of our children’s program during church time. It comes from the Linnea Good hymn, “Make a Joyful Noise.” Children from ages 4 to grade six stay upstairs for the opening part of the service. After Learning Together, a time in the service especially for children, they go downstairs for Joyful Noise, where they sing songs, learn stories from the Bible and have a variety of fun activities. We are fortunate to have an enthusiastic and committed group of volunteers working with our children. Our Joyful Noise coordinator is Amanda Wilkinson.
Men's Breakfast Group
At 7:00am on the first Wednesday of every month, the Ecumenical Men's Breakfast Group meets. On a month-by-month rotation, the breakfasts are hosted by the Anglican, Lutheran, Roman Catholic, and United churches around town. This group provides a meal and fellowship for men from congregations around Whitehorse. New faces are welcome! Call the United Church office (667-2989) to find out the location for the next breakfast.
Along with our friends at Sacred Heart Cathedral, WUC participates in the soup kitchen held every weekend at Sacred Heart Cathedral. WUC is responsible for 2 days per month to supply food (usually hearty soup, buns, fruit, dessert, tea, coffee and juice) and servers at the soup kitchen. Sign up sheets for volunteers are posted at WUC.
Braeburn Lake Summer Camp
As a members of the Braebrun Lake Christian Camp Association, congregations from the Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran and United Churches, own and operate a summer camp. The camp hosts children from the ages of 6-15 for up to five weeks each summer. Traditionally children attend PeeWee Camp, Junior Camp or Teen Camp. Braeburn camp also has a successful CIT program that encourages teenage members of our congregations to participate in camp and share in a leadership role. Volunteers are the heart of Braeburn Camp. Whitehorse United Church has supported the camp with financial and human resources since the late 1960's.
