upcoming events & programs
Part of being the church is striving to be a community of loving and caring people. We know that sometimes we all need help and support to get through many of life’s challenges, no matter what age, or what stage of life we’re at. Our Congregational Care team invites you to take advantage of our confidential, caring, compassionate ministries and services. We’re here for you when you need us.
For any of life's emergencies (from the big to the small) we are here to try to help, offering some hope in the form of a listening ear, hot cup of coffee, and spiritual leadership. Please call the church if you need some pastoral care at 403-256-3181, or, in case of an emergency, Rev. Nick at 587-777-4927.
A phone call or email to Pastor Nick Coates, Vi Sharpe, or anyone on the Congregational Care team is all that’s needed to arrange visits, phone calls, meals, prayer, baby shawls and baby quilts, comfort care bags for those recieving chemotherapy, sacraments, and caring cards for yourself or for those in need.
Daytime Appointments are on the Fourth Monday of Each Month at 1:30pm
Evening Appointments are at 7:30pm - Arranged as Requested
Healing sessions support the healing of body, mind and spirit through the practice of gentle touch. These nurturing, calming and restorative sessions help reduce stress and pain, promote relaxation, and enable faster recovery from illness, surgery and injury. Children and adults of all ages ... even pets ... benefit.
Walking the Labyrinth is for anyone looking for a spiritual tool that allows us to turn our attention inward which can facilitate healing, deepen self-knowledge and empower creativity. It clears the mind giving us access to our wisdom and inner sources of guidance. These provide us with invaluable insight into vital questions about our work, health, relationships and spirituality. The Labyrinth walk is a simple physical activity, a walking meditation, a form of body prayer. This integration of mind, body and spirit presents a whole integrated world where you can have a heart to heart talk with your body or your Spirit.
Believing in the healing power of prayer, this compassionate and nonjudgmental group of individuals receives prayer requests for all manner of situations. Whether you’re asking for help or expressing gratitude, we will pray for you. Privacy and confidentiality are respected. Contact Fran Porter.
