Okanagan Falls United Church is Worshiping and meeting online at many different locations. Many are joining Oasis United Church in Penticton. Okanagan Falls United Church held joint services with Oasis United Church in 2016 for several months while Oasis was without a church building. Okanagan Falls United Church also shared a minister with Oasis United Church for a year. Here is a link for the service which is at 10 AM on Sunday mornings.
We have received an email from the Pacific Mountain Regional office telling us that we need to suspend services at Okanagan Falls United Church. Many of our congregation are joining Oasis United church on Zoom at 10 AM on Sunday Mornings. We are sure we will hear when they will allow us to once again hold our weekly church services. OK Falls Quilters is also suspended due to COVID-19.
The message from the United Church of Canada indicates that we will still need to carry on our pastoral care. To this end I would ask that you contact us if you require any assistance (grocery shopping, trips for medical appointments, etc.) or pastoral care. Our email and phone numbers are below.
Here is the link to the Pacific Mountain Regions message regarding this topic:

Oasis United Church which is an official affirming congregation will be worshiping with Okanagan Falls United Church during the months of July and August at Okanagan Falls United Church. Okanagan Falls United Church will be hosting services for the month of July and Oasis United Church will be “hosting” in Okanagan Falls United Church in August. The services are scent-free. Sunday School will be provided by Oasis United Church volunteers. Coffee time will follow the service. These two churches are currently searching for a new minister to serve both congregations. This is a very exciting time in the life of a congregation. The search is going well and we are hopeful that we will soon have an announcement regarding the search.
