Join us for Spaghetti Church Saturday March 28th, 2015 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
Spaghetti Church is church for families that enjoy a more informal, activity-centred and community-oriented way of worshipping together from time to time. It is held on the last Saturday of every month at 4:00 p.m., and it typically includes a craft or other activity time, a family-friendly worship and teaching time, and a simple meal (hence the spaghetti!). Please note that this is not something you can drop your kids off for; it is intended to be about families worshipping together, so all children must be accompanied by at least one parent or grandparent. Call 780-437-7231 for more information.

Evangelism Training WorkshopHow to Help New Disciples Grow: What are the practices and disciplines that have helped you to grow as a disciple of Jesus? How did you learn them? What are the best ways of passing these practices and disciplines on to new disciples? How could you help? In our next ‘Evangelism Training for the Diocese of Edmonton’ workshop, we will focus on helping new disciples grow. How can we grow (1) in our relationship with God, (2) in our participation in the family of God, (3) in the new way of living that Jesus wants to teach us, and (4) in our participation in his mission to the world? We will look at some practices that help us in each of these areas, and we will consider how, as churches and as individuals, we can help new Christians learn these vital discipleship skills.
