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 stage of life.

Our Congregational Care Team invites you to take advantage of our confidential, caring, compassionate ministries and services.

Vi Sharpe is our Congregational Care Counsellor. She can be reached at (403) 256-3181 or ccare@reddeerlakeuc.com

compassionate care

A phone call or email to Rev. Nick Coates, Vi Sharpe, or anyone on the Congregational Care Team is all that’s needed to arrange visits, phone calls, meals, prayer, prayer shawls and baby quilts, ChemoCare bags for those receiving chemotherapy, sacraments, caring cards for yourself or caring hugs bags for those facing personal challenges in their lives.

Contact Vi Sharpe or the Church Office or 403-256-3181.

healing ministry

Daytime Appointments are on the fourth Monday of each month at 1:30pm

Evening Appointments are at 7:30pm - Arranged as Requested

These sessions support the healing of body, mind and spirit through the practice of gentle touch – nurturing, calming and restorative to help reduce stress and pain, promote relaxation, and enable faster recovery from illness, surgery and injury. Children and adults of all ages – even pets – can benefit.

Please contact the Church Office at (403) 256-3181 for appointments.

 

labyrinth walk

The Labyrinth is for anyone looking for a spiritual tool that will allow you to turn your 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. 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.

prayer ministry

Believing in the power of prayer, a compassionate and non-judgmental group of individuals from our church receives prayer requests for all manner of situations. We will pray for you whether you are asking for help or expressing gratitude. Privacy and confidentiality are respected. Contact Fran Porter.
