Care Calls (Pastoral Care)

If you are needing to speak with a Pastor, whether it's for prayer, support, or simply a listening ear....we have a care team who is reaching out to our community in this way. Please contact us via phone or email, and our wonderful care team will set-up a time to call.

**We hope to add in-person visitation soon, but under the current Provincial Health Guidelines, we are not able to.

Journey of Hope

Journey of Hope is a women's cancer support group that meets once a month on a Monday afternoon. The group is under the leadership of a female chaplain and provides a venue to receive spiritual and emotional support for those journeying through a cancer diagnosis.

If you could benefit from a group like this please contact Will.

Prayer Shawls

Do you know of someone who has recently experienced loss of a loved one, is in a stage of grief, is going through loss of physical or mental health, is struggling with addiction, divorce, or a life-threatening illness? Our prayer-shawl team is a group of volunteers who love to minister and bless as they pray and knit shawls & blankets. These shawls provide comfort, strength, love, and more as the wearer wraps themselves in an item prayerfully created with them in mind.
