Jesus welcomed everyone, whether they were rich or poor; self-made or educated; popular or a loner; secure or full of doubts. HVUC prides itself on welcoming everyone the way Jesus did, regardless of age, race, class, gender, sexual orientation, or physical ability.
There is so much happening at our church and something for everyone to participate in. Do you like singing, hiking, volunteering, cooking, learning, reading, knitting, decorating, socializing, or building and fixing things? View our HVUC Board, ministry Committees and Operational Committees here.
If you are new to the area, or new to the idea of joining a church, we'd love to speak with you. We can surely match up your interests and talents with a dynamic group that would welcome you with open arms. Don't be shy...we are so pleased that you have taken that first step and we are here to guide and support you. For information, please call the church office at 416.231.2263
Social Interaction for all ages
United Church Women: 4 groups meet monthly for various programs and to organize fundraisers in support of HVUC as well as local and international charities. The main purpose of the UCW is to unite the women of the church and to work together in the service of Jesus Christ. They also have a lot of fun!
The Valley Girls: This group of women meet regularly for social interaction, to support one another, and to organize outreach projects. They support Out of the Cold by cooking and serving dinners at another church location several times throughout the winter and they create special gift packages for needy families at Christmas.
Men's Lunch Group: Once a month the older men meet for lunch at a local eatery.
Daytimers: HVUC provides a tasty lunch for the "more mature" folks in our church and its community on the last Monday of every month. Cost is only $8.00 and includes a program of interest.
