Here at Fraser Road United Church, we aim to be Open, Friendly, and Welcoming to all who come our way. Our Minister serves this three point charge (Benton, Gander, Glenwood/Appleton) with a loving devotion towards continued spiritual growth in our congregations. In addition, lay support is strong in assisting the minister where we can. There is always a need for help in committee work and/or general service required with varying church functions. We prayerfully hope that you enjoy being a part of our church and that it helps you grow in many ways in your day to day life. May God continue to bless those presently a part of Fraser Road United Church, other denominations within the region, the community, and, the world at large. May we all in faith through Jesus Christ remain strong in our holy convictions today and forevermore.
IN JESUS’ NAME….AMEN
Come visit us anytime at 1 Brochen Street in Gander. Worship Service is every Sunday at 11:00am and you would be most welcome to join us. Information on special event(s) will be posted here and on our Facebook page. We would be delighted to share in your company.
