Welcome to Penticton Alliance Church!
Welcome to Penticton Alliance Church!
WELCOME to the Penticton Alliance Church website! We are thrilled that you've taken a few moments to check us out.
Our worship gatherings start at 10 AM on Sunday mornings. During out gatherings, we offer kids ministries as well. The kids are dismissed part way through, after worshipping together as a church family.
We offer ministries for all groups (seniors, women, men, youth, children) as well as Lifegroups (Bible studies for ladies and mixed groups).
Please feel free to peruse our website and if you have any questions, we'd love for you to contact our church office using the Contact page. May God bless you abundantly and we hope to see you next Sunday!
PAC Care Groups
This fall PAC would like to form many groups (called "Care Groups") in the church to ensure that people are getting the support and care that they need, and to give them an opportunity to deepen their relationships with others. These groups would consist of a max of 12 people, getting together once/month to socialize and pray for one another. In between times, they would stay in contact with one another and support one another as needed.
We are looking for group leaders...Leaders do not nessissarily need to host the group, but to make sure that the group is spending time together and caring for one another. If you are interested in being a group leader, please talk to Pastor Laurence Phone: 250-493-7136 or Email: email@example.com
Days for Girls Kit Sponsorship
Looking for people willing to sponsor sanitary hygiene kits, for girls in developing countries. The cost to put a kit together is $20. If you would like to support this endeavor as a sponsor, please contact Joy Huebert 250-809-6594 or Greta Loeppky 778-476-1532.

Bottles for Bibles
