The crest is designed in the form of a St. Andrew's Cross with an insignia in each of the four corners. The X at the centre, the first letter of the Greek word for Christ, is a traditional symbol for Christ. Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28-30. The oval shape of the United Church Crest is derived from the outline of a fish, a symbol of identity by early Christians. The initials of the words Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour spell the Greek word for fish.

Adult Programs
  • Weekly Bible Study - Held on Wednesdays at 10 am, each get-together reviews passages and scriptures and helps you better understand the teachings expressed in the Bible.

  • United Church Women (UCW) - The UCW Mission is to love God, to foster Christian faithfulness, spirituality, commitment and devotion and to promote love and respect by living generously and giving joyfully to all God's people and to affirm and strengthen ourselves creatively. We have two UCW groups at Olds United, with an approximate attendance of 60. The Afternoon Unit meets at 2 pm on the first Tuesday of the month; the Evening Unit meets at 7:30 pm. Meetings consist of worship, study and fellowship. The UCW does some catering for various functions as well as supports projects within the United Church and community. The annual Tea, Bazaar and Bake Sale is held on the first Saturday in November.

The United Church is the largest Protestant denomination in Canada with a rich history closely entwined with the development of Canada itself. We believe a United Vision is serving, friendly, flexible, inclusive, welcoming, faithful, compassionate, justice-seeking, caring, peace-seeking, tolerant, and innovative. The vision of the United Church of Canada involves ministry in our own United Churches and in work with partners across the country and around the globe. In the four corners of the United Church crest are symbols, three of which are particularly associated with the three communions, Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian, that united to form The United Church of Canada in 1925.
