Welcome Back!

Kids meet at the back of the church at 10:30 a.m. during the Sunday service, then go to their session following the all “ages and kid’s time” story. Their guide is Jodine Chase, who has a program of interesting topics, ideas, and fun things to do for all ages. Please plan to join us.


A Retirement Celebration

Agnes LuiDate: Sunday, September 24
Time: Presentation at 10:30 service
Lunch/Reception/Tributes: 12 noon, Banquet Hall
About: We knew this day would come, but it is always too soon when it does! Our much-beloved Office Administrator, Agnes Lui, will be retiring in her 28th year of service to McDougall Church. Her official retirement date is October 1.

Agnes has looked after our day-to-day operations with efficiency, and we have come to greatly depend on her extensive knowledge and expertise over the last 28 years. She has provided support to our staff, church leaders, volunteers, couples who marry here, and the organizations who rent our facilities.

Thanks You

What: Panel Discussion

The Secret

The Secret

Date: Wednesday evenings, September 27 to November 8
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: McDougall Lounge (please use south entrance 10086 Macdonald Dr.)
About: The Secret is a best-selling self-help book by Rhonda Byrne, based on the earlier film of the same name. It is based on the ‘law of attraction’ which claims that thoughts can change the world directly. We will be viewing the videos and examining ways in which its teachings both parallel and differ from the teachings of Jesus on the principles of faith. The goal is to come away with a greater knowledge on the principles of faith and how they can enrich our lives.

McDougall is a Breastfeeding Friendly Church

McDougall United Church became Edmonton’s first official Breastfeeding Friendly church in 2013. In keeping with being an inclusive and welcoming church, mothers will not be asked to move or cover while breastfeeding. They are welcome to breastfeed anytime, anywhere at McDougall.

Business and public places in Edmonton who have adopted the Edmonton Capital Region Breastfeeding Friendly Policy for Businesses and Public Places are eligible to become official Breastfeeding Friendly Community Partners. Community Partners train their staff and volunteers to display a welcoming attitude towards Breastfeeding logobreastfeeding mothers and children, not ask them to cover up or relocate, and to offer appropriate private facilities for women who ask. Training also helps staff handle other patron complaints about breastfeeding.

Community Partners display the International Breastfeeding Symbol. This lets Edmonton’s breastfeeding families know the facility is a safe and friendly space.
