To the Calgary Congregation,

There will be no in-person church gatherings until the new year, but we encourage people to participate in the Beyond the Walls online gatherings to celebrate Christmas. See YouTube links below to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day offerings.

Our Calgary Food Bank donation was dropped off on December 19th and amounted to 140 pounds of food and other goods. Cash donations will also be transferred to them, which the Food Bank can leverage 5 to 1 in purchasing food through its partners. Please continue to remember and support the vulnerable members of our community that are facing so many challenges this time of year. It’s been a very good year for the Calgary Congregation, and I will be sending out a year-end letter to the congregation to summarize our notable achievements and benchmarks.

It’s Dangerously Cold Out There!

Knowing how we can support one another during difficult times empowers us to act more quickly when we witness hardship. If/when you see someone struggling outside in this extreme weather (no matter what time of day/night), you can call the Alpha House Society to pick them up and get them to a safe warming centre and shelter.

Call 403-998-7388 to reach the Alpha House.

This is a sustained position, officially authorized by the Mission Centre, but brought forward by the congregation. If you might be interested in contributing to the work of the congregation this way, please read the job description outlined below. Marilyn would be happy to answer any additional questions you might have.
