We are called to be a place of refuge for the hurting, lonely, frightened, and searching … a place to be real. We want to be known as people who freely and openly express the compassion of Christ to our community and world, in both word and action.Compassion and Care ministries allow practical and intentional ways to live LOL (life on life) with others. There are two unique avenues of ministry:
Our church body is primarily cared for by one another, through a care team made up of volunteers. They offer support through visits, phone calls, prayer, and practical help. They are available to walk alongside anyone who is in need of some extra encouragement and support.
As we look beyond the walls of our own church, we seek ways to serve others in our community, both locally and globally. Community Impact serves by supporting 4 local agencies (Sonshine Centre, Mustard Seed, Inn from the Cold, Pregnancy Care Centre) through finances and volunteers, hosting annual Christmas and Easter hampers, and giving leadership to other initiatives as they become apparent (eg. flooding assistance efforts.)
If you would like to become involved or know of someone who would benefit from Compassion and Care ministries, email Kathy or call her at 403-873-5213.
For emergencies (eg. death, illness, etc.) you can contact Jayne Burnham at 403-873-5208.
