Come and experience this moving (prayerful) meditation that focuses on the breath and a closer connection to the unconditional love and healing of God’s universe!! Movements are (generally) slow and gentle. Find some peace, calm, happiness, strength, healing, and/or stillness inside. Come on out and try Qigong for Health and Wellness!

Each week we gather to drink coffee and explore our faith. Nick will be taking a short break over the summer and returning again in September. Various members of the group will share the leadership and continue to meet.  It’s part community, part Bible Study, part coffee break! Just bring yourself!

Christmas isn't magical for all of us.  For many of us it can be a stressful, awkward, and painful time as we struggle with grief, financial stress, social expectations, mental health, and loneliness.  If Christmas is hard for you, we invite you to a night of lament and light - A Blue Christmas service - for a chance to be real, name our pain, and fear.

You are welcome to bring your Little Ones for an unstructured playtime, while the Moms and Dads enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and chat. We have a small bouncy castle and some ride-on toys for the children available. Sandwiches will be served and you are welcome to bring a kid-friendly snack to share. It is a great way to have a laidback conversation while the kids burn off that extra energy! If you have any questions please call or text Judit Pothier at 403-998-6879.

Break out your ugliest Christmas sweater (prizes to be won!) for our annual No-Reherasal Christmas Pageant! Bring the whole family and get spontaneously involved and caught in singing some carols and hearing the Christmas story. We’ve even sent out a favour to the North Pole to see if our pal Santa has time to by and say hello after the service.
