In the spring of 1999, the congregation of Port Elgin United Church (PEUC) marched from Mill Street to what was then their newly built Bruce Street location. In a PEUC submission, it was a time of celebration as the hard work and dedication of so many people were recognized in thanksgiving to God.

PEUC has a proud history of inviting the community to utilize our facilities; firstly, as a place of worship, and then as a place to meet or to socialize. This barrier-free facility was designed to serve many cultural events in the sanctuary and physical activities in the Family Activity Centre and has such has become a hub of activity in the community.

PEUC's thanksgivings continue as they mark 20 years and the on-going ministry they share in Jesus' name. On Sunday, June 2 the Service of Worship will include joyous music from our very gifted musical groups as well as times of reflection and prayer. Speakers from the original building committee will share how the dreams, ideas and needs of many people over 10 to 15 years resulted in the building the church has today.

The community is invited to join PEUC with a special gathering of music with favourite selections at 9:40 a.m. The Service of Worship is set to get underway at 10 a.m.
