Thousands of newcomers have come to Edmonton from the Middle East as refugees. These incredible people have experienced the challenges of war and displacement from their homes. As a result, we have a fantastic opportunity to build relationships with them and serve them in practical ways. Some of these opportunities include connecting with a Syrian family on a weekly/biweekly basis to practice English informally. We also have the opportunity to mentor and coach Syrian youth through our weekly soccer program.
Spiritual gifts were an important part of the ministry of the New Testament church, and also the church today. God gives every believer a spiritual gift (or gifts) in order to build up other believers and do God’s work throughout the world.
Serving and spiritual gifts go hand in hand. We have created an online spiritual gifts course to help you discover, develop, and use the spiritual gifts that God has given you.
