Our offering today

is for support forthe Chaplaincy and Care Ministries. Chaplaincy is a healing, reconciling ministry of God, an expression and extension of God’s activity and mission in the world. It provides pastoral ministry in specialized settings to people who are hurting or in crisis, uprooted or dislocated. Through the presence of chaplains, the very settings in which they minister become surprising places of grace. Chaplains are exceptional, well-trained ministers of the Word or commissioned pastors who serve in specialized ministries beyond the walls of the church. Chaplains are specially trained, called and ordained by the church, and sent by Jesus Christ to provide spiritual care to people in pain or spiritual distress.

Next Sunday, November 25th,

our offering will be for the Mustard Seed Red Deer. The Mustard Seed is a ministry that is seeking to build hope and wellbeing for our most vulnerable citizens through Jesus’ love. Operating out of the 54th street building, we are excited to have the opportunity to plant this Seed that we hope will grow into a strong ministry that changes lives. We want to work with you to ensure that our approach fits with the real needs of people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Red Deer.

We are committed to:

  • Being good neighbours to the people of Red Deer.
  • Walking alongside this community to create a Christ-centred ministry that changes lives.
  • Conducting a needs analysis so we can create targeted programs that are specific to the areas of greatest need.
