Welcome to our church!!
Third Avenue United Church to Close
Third Avenue United Church Congregation had a vote Sunday, February 25, 2018 and voted to cease worshiping at Third Avenue Church as of June 24, 2018. At the end of June, the members of Third Avenue United will be going their own way to join whichever church they wish. Membership transfer certificates will be given to each member to take with them.
It is too bad that the congregation ended up in this situation; however Third Avenue Unified Board trusts that the members of Third Avenue will stay together until the end of June, and celebrate the 113 years of our congregation’s existence. The Board will need the members’ help to make sure everything is ready for the end of June and therefore ask for their continued help and support.
The Unified Board thanks Third Avenue United Church Congregation and Staff for their support and patience over the past trying times, and look forward to working with them towards ending the existence of the congregation with dignity. We will continue Sunday Church Services each week at 10:30 a.m. and there will be many special events planned leading up to our closure.
Christmas Letter from the Board Chair
Dear friends and family of Third Avenue United Church,
The past year has been our year of revival. After much hard work by the Board, Vision Committee and our staff, and the cooperation of River Bend Presbytery, we have managed to achieve the financial stability that we have so long sought. It has been a long road, but it is not yet the end.
To ensure our future, we must now concentrate on a growth strategy for our congregation and, in doing so, focus on our role as a caring church in our downtown community. And that is my theme for this year’s Christmas letter.
Thanks to the proceeds we have set aside, our Community Fund is an important element of our community commitment and, just as importantly, our engagement with our community.

The Mission of Third Avenue United Church is to reach out with love and provide a welcoming place, especially for downtown people. We offer strength, courage, and support in a safe nurturing environment.
we have created a Community Fund with an initial principal of $500.000. While we have paid or have made commitments for much of that initial fund, we intend to replenish as best we can and, in the meantime, we still have a significant amount available to support this community initiative.
Weekly volunteers are needed for ushering and scripture readers. You may volunteer as many times as you would like. To volunteer please sign up on the sheets downstairs on the bulletin board or you may contact the church office.
A volunteer list is being started in the church office for anyone interested in volunteering at concerts or major events like the many suppers we hold throughout the year. If you would like to be on this list please contact Raycine.
