ENGAGED COMMUNITY GUIDE PROGRAM

It's a win-win! The ECG program hires those who have been and/or are currently homeless to build skills and contribute to the community. ECG's serve as a community ambassador to our homeless three hours a week doing things like, reporting suspected break-ins, picking-up needles, directing folks to resources, administering first-aid, and more. We're grateful to partner with other churches and local businesses in funding the Engaged Community Guide program so it can continue in Mission in 2019! This is a tangible example of our vision! We are working towards building a good world and the $1,000 given to this program came from two of our Storehouse funds (1st Stage Local Outreach & 2nd Stage Local Outreach). Thank you! If you'd like to know more about the ECG program and/or donate directly to Mission Community Services, please visit their [...]

IS IT A TRICK OR TREAT?

Christian parents struggle with Halloween. It's a day where our city celebrates (plays with) evil and death. It proves the blindness and naivety that much of our world has to the reality of Satan/evil (as well as the good side of the spiritual). Like Christmas, it's history and contemporary practice is a melting pot of morphed beliefs and practices. Each person has a unique (tailored or naive) perspective on it and its various traditions. And like Christmas, it can be used for good or bad. (Christmas can be wonderful if you forget about the people that suffered to make your Walmart toy, the impact that toy will have on the planet, the materialism and entitlement we teach our children in that season, and the debt that we incurred from buying it). Don't worry, I still think Christmas is [...]

BENEVOLENCE FUND

GIVE ONLINE We live to give! A Christian worldview sees the material things of this world as merely tools to build both ours and our neighbour's love for God. The Bible instructs us to be wise and generous managers of the material for we will all give an account for how we "spent" our life. Jesus knew that it is in our nature to protect and insure our own self-interest, but modelled what it means to deny ourselves. He gave His very life that His kindness might warm our cold hearts. Today, as His followers, we continue His ministry of warming cold hearts. Through our acts of kindness and generosity, the goodness of God is experienced in us and others. Because when we give, we (and others) actually get a small taste of what He went through for [...]

HANNAH’S TRIP TO MEXICO

I received the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Vicente Guerrero, Baja California, Mexico from August 2-16, 2017, with a few people from our youth group this year. Members of our group joined with other church groups and together we journeyed South on a coach bus. Travelling together brought me so close to people who, two weeks earlier, were strangers to me. I wish I never had to leave this group of people because they have really become family to me. I didn't think you could become so close to people in that short amount of time. Some may think that the bus ride would be terrible, but the bus rides were some of the best bonding times. At the orphanage, we stayed in the visitor centre. Every day, we would eat our meals in the [...]

THE DAY AFTER AN ELECTION

How is a Christian to live out political election results? We update our prayer lists. "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." (1 Tim. 2:1-4 NIV) People of other political parties and religions are not the enemy; they are the ones we are called to love. It starts with prayer and aligning our heart with God's. We learn from those who voted differently than us. "An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge." (Proverbs 18:15 ESV) It's in our [...]
