We believe faith is not defined by an institution.

Love each other, be curious and always ask questions.

Rising Spirit Ministry is the partnership of Bashaw United Church, Ponoka United Church and the online ministry Six Ways From Sunday.

We intend to create a safe place to engage our sense and understanding of God, spirituality and Jesus;

to learn, to share our experiences and be inspired. But we also know that there are many ways to do that.

For some, that might include a Sunday morning or a week night gathering, a small group, a discussion or a social time over a meal.

Others might prefer the freedom of connecting through the internet with video, podcasts and social media.

Wherever you are and however you choose to connect with us, you are welcome.
