The Pinegrove congregation is a lively and accepting community of faith with a mix of nationalities and backgrounds. Our mission statement is REACHING OUT TO OTHERS WITH GOD’S LOVE. We work well together, support each other through difficult times as well as the fun times. We are part of the United Church of Canada, Canada’s largest Protestant denomination.
We also have our roots firmly planted in Rosslyn Village, a growing and changing community with a good mix of rural and city sensitivities. We do both local and global outreach through generous donations to many local outreach initiatives and the United Church’s Mission & Service Fund (M&S).
Our faith family is a blend of folks from all walks of life. We are blessed with many talented people who get involved with worship, pastoral care, fundraisers and local projects.
We have an energetic and forward thinking minister, Hubert Den Draak, who brings relaxed and meaningful worship, and with his partner Jacomyn some exciting initiatives and ideas. And they live in a solar- and wind-powered straw bale house, showing that care for our fragile environment (God’s creation) can be lived out in very real ways.
