Congregational Prayer Gathering: 

We are God's people, called by His name. If we humble ourselves, go to Him and call upon Him, He may hear us and heal us and continue His work among us. We will have another Congregational Prayer Gathering on Sunday, January 28th, at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to join in prayer for the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit among us. Corporate prayer is needed for the Search Committee, the Renewal Lab, our Youth ministries, and many other things. We are still looking for a way to make it possible for all who come to participate and especially to hear, so please come and help us find that particular solution that will work for all involved.

Thank you so much for supporting the Mustard Seed

In Red Deer in 2017. Your generous spirit of compassion is an inspiration to others. You are invited to participate in the Coldest Night of the Year Walk – February 24th. The Coldest Night of the Year is a super-fun, family friendly fundraiser for hungry, homeless, and hurting individual families in Red Deer. All proceeds go to the Mustard Seed. This is not your normal walk. This is a walk of awareness and empathy. This is an opportunity to walk a mile in the shoes of the most vulnerable. A meal will be provided at the Mustard Seed at the conclusion of the Walk. Please register a team from your church at https://cnoy.org/location/reddeer to help us raise our goal of $25,000. Your participation will make a significant difference in the lives of men, women and children in need. Last year your belief in our work helped us serve over 17,000 dinners and 53,000 lunches via the school lunch program, while providing spiritual care. Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done. Proverbs 19:17



Starting this year, the federal government is requiring Canada Summer Jobs applicants to check off a box attesting that the organization’s core mandate respects “individual human rights,” with reproductive rights specifically mentioned. Pray that the legal actions, started by anti-abortion groups, may result in withdrawing this requirement.
