Thanks to all who attended the workshop after Worship on Feb 23 to help plan how our Building can best serve the Mission that God has placed before us. The information gathered on that day is being collated. The following button will take you to all the documentation you will need about the three plans that were discussed



In the same way that Jesus reached out to all people, our faith community is called to be open and inclusive.

We continue to seek ways to be inclusive of all people of the Bow Valley, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, cultural background, education level, mobility challenges… ALL people!

Morley Christmas Project 2020
We have celebrated with Morley for a number of years.  This year more than ever, there are Elders who need our support. Elders get OAS so they do not qualify for the Morley Food Bank.  Most elders have 5 or more people living with them, usually grandchildren. RCMUC will, along with 6 other churches, reach out with gifts to the most needy Elders in all three Bands: Chiniki, Bearspaw and Wesley. This year instead of turkeys, cookies, a mitten tree, collecting clothes and hefting tables, will you please consider making a benevolent donation to this project. Donations should be submitted to RCMUC by December 3.

To donate to Morley Elder Christmas: Please designate “Morley Elder Christmas” when you select your preferred donation method
