Welcome! We understand that attending a church, or a new church, might be intimidating or awkward. We want you to know that, no matter where you're coming from, how long it's been since you last stepped foot through the doors of a church building, or where you are in your spiritual journey, we're pleased to have you join us. You may have a few questions and we encourage you to peruse the website, as it is contains much of the information you may be looking for (staff, events, ministries, etc.).
Where you can find us... We are located at 197 Brandon Ave. (Just behind the Tim Horton's and north of Walmart). Our office entrance (Tuesday to Friday) is on the north-east corner of the building, and our main entrance (Sunday morning) is on the south-east corner of the building. On Sunday mornings, parking can be at a bit of a premium. Extra parking is available across Brandon Avenue in the Walmart parking lot, or on McKenzie Street, to the north of the church property.
What you can expect when you join us? Our worship gathering begins at 10:00 AM, and usually last for about an hour and a bit. Our church is made up of all ages and you will see seniors and children enjoying each other's company. Our music is a combination of contemporary worship songs mixed in with traditional hymns, and everything in between.
When you enter the church building, we hope you are greeted in the foyer by one of our friendly ushers, who can provide you with a weekly bulletin and direct you to the Auditorium, Children's Ministry Sign-in Desk, library, washrooms, etc.
What should I wear? Our church family, on a Sunday morning, dresses casual (flip-flops, shorts and a t-shirt) to formal (ties and dresses) and everything in between.
Will I be expected to give money? Part-way through our gathering, we take an "offering" (pass the offering bags around). This is really only for those who have chosen to make Penticton Alliance Church their home church. There is never pressure for anyone to give, especially for those visiting or "checking us out."
What about my kids? We have a wonderful Kids Program for kids from Birth to Grade 6. For more information check out our PAC Kids Ministry page.
We love meeting new people and are excited to meet you!
