Oasis United Church to join Okanagan Falls United Church for July and August

“Blasted Church”

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.
