Inter-Denominational Community Church
Description

East Nissouri Union Church is one of a few registered Inter-Denominational churches in Canada.

Our worship is designed to meet the spiritual needs of Christ-followers attending whilst holding onto the traditions of the church.

We have the reputation of being the friendliest church in the area where everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in the life and work of the church.

Our Missions work is extensive and our members are actively involved within our communities.

Our Sunday School is a warm environment where children enjoy learning about the Lord, while also being a great place for older students to volunteer.
