Our Ministries

The goal of Christian ministry is quite simple…are we making and nurturing genuine disciples of Christ?

—Colin Marshall and Tony Payne, The Trellis and the Vine

Weekly Discipleship

Sunday Service

We welcome everyone to join us during the core of our discipleship ministry, in which we worship the Lord, listen to his Word preached, and celebrate the Lord’s Supper together. See Essential Information for more details.

The Journey

Prior to our Sunday Service, The Journey encourages group discussion to teach and equip each believer for the work that the church is called to do (Ephesians 4:11-16). Please see Essential Information for more details.

Growth Groups

Growth Groups foster a more intimate setting where people worship God, cultivate deeper relationships, and serve one another. They meet weekly for 1 ½–2 hours for fellowship, prayer, worship, and study. We provide care, encouragement, counseling and accountability to each other as we exercise our gifts and develop each other as leaders and mentors. Please Contact Us to join one of our Growth Groups.

Ministry Listing

Growth Groups

Growth Groups exist to engage, encourage and equip each other to grow into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Growth Groups foster a more intimate setting where people worship God, cultivate deeper relationships, and serve one another. They meet weekly for 1½–2 hours for fellowship, prayer, worship, and study.

We provide care, encouragement, counseling and accountability to each other as we exercise our gifts and develop each other as leaders and mentors.

Men

Men’s Ministry calls men to know and live out the full measure of the gospel message—to find grace and forgiveness through trust in Jesus alone, leading to a worship-filled life as servant-leaders in the home, church, and community. One-on-few mentorship relationships centred in God’s Word provide discipleship opportunities to grow in understanding, faith, and obedience.

Join other men in humble prayer to the Almighty God. Fellowship together via Men’s Breakfasts, sporting events and back-country adventures. Serve others in the church and community through practical opportunities in moving, building, repairing and providing transportation.

Women

We plan various functions throughout the year for women. These would include Christmas craft nights, ladies tea socials, baby showers and bridal showers, and ladies mentoring and/or Bible studies. These evenings are open to all ladies and are relaxed and casual with lots of visiting, music, food, inspirational sharing and at applicable times, crafts.

We always have a Christmas Craft night in late November or early December and then once in the spring we have a different evening. Sometimes we have special guest speakers or demonstrators of a new skill or craft.

Children

Nursery: Infants to under 3 years old

A safe, loving place for wee ones to play or rest while Moms and Dads are in Sunday Service or attending The Journey. We are equipped with age appropriate toys, a change station, a crib for napping and and a rocking chair in a private room for moms to nurse in.

Junior Church: Preschool Through Grade 3

Junior Church is held during the second half of the Sunday Service. It is intended to make disciples of children who are not yet able to comprehend the teaching in a sermon.

We use a curriculum called Generations of Grace is a biblically based and God-centered Sunday school curriculum. Over a three-year period, this curriculum covers the Old Testament historical books, the life of Christ, and lessons from Acts and Revelation.

Every week, children in each age range learn from the same passage of Scripture in a way that is appropriate for their respective age levels. We call this a “unified curriculum.” A unified curriculum enables families to discuss one passage together each week, reinforcing the lesson that children have learned in Sunday School.

Each lesson is divided into four main sections:

  1. Prepare with the Truth—includes a lesson overview (lesson goal, key truths, objectives, and application points), teacher planning sheet, and Bible background information to help the teacher prepare spiritually and mentally.
  2. Point to the Truth—includes activity and discussion ideas for reviewing the previous lesson and building students’ anticipation for the day’s lesson.
  3. Proclaim the Truth—includes questions, Bible content, and presentation ideas for actual teaching time. For students in the elementary grades, Bible lessons are in a question-and-answer format; this helps to ensure that students participate in and understand each lesson.
  4. Practice the Truth—includes activities, work sheets, crafts, and discussion ideas to use after the lesson time, helping to reinforce and apply what students have learned.

Resources & Welcome

Library

Our library is located in the main lobby of the church and has a variety of books, DVDs, CDs, and magazine literature available for borrowing.

Resources

Other resources can be found beside the Welcome Centre in the main lobby. Our Elders have carefully chosen books and other items to help you draw closer to God and live a life that glorifies Him. They can be purchased by a suggested donation at the Welcome Centre. If you’re looking for a particular book not in our kiosk and would like to purchase it, consult the Welcome Centre and they’ll do their best to order it in for you.

Hilltop House

We have a dedicated team of volunteers that come out to serve at Hilltop House residential care facility. The service involves music and singing along with a short Biblical devotional and ending with prayer and visitation. We visit on a rotating basis of once every 5 weeks. Visitors are welcome, kids included!

Building Management

As we are thankful to God for the blessings we have in a building in which we can come together in praise and worship, we want to ensure that we are good stewards of what we have been given.

Work Bees

As we get a big project or a longer list of tasks to refresh our building, we will announce a Saturday morning work bee. Everyone is welcome to come and help out. This is a fun time of fellowship and working together to maintain our building.

Small Jobs

As our building ages, we require a lot of smaller jobs that range from painting to plumbing and everything else in between. So instead of filling up our work bee with small jobs, we have a list of smaller jobs that can be done by individuals with some free time and a heart for service.

Website

Our website exists to equip the followers of Jesus Christ by providing them with information and resources they need to grow, and to engage the world by communicating the gospel of Jesus Christ and the ministry of his church.
