In February, 2016, Living Spirit partnered with B’nai Tikvah Temple and Friends Church, the Elboya community and a generous couple to adopt a Syrian refugee family of 6. We are enjoying accompanying them on their new life in Canada immensely. If you would like to become involved please contact us at our main office (403)243-3180.
NEW FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS (ESL)
This group of women immigrants to Canada meet every Tuesday morning from 10:00 a.m. to noon with our wonderful ESL volunteers to learn and practice English conversation and make new friends. Childcare provided upon request.
GOOD FOOD BOX
For $20 S, $25 M or $30 L you can order a Good Food Box on the 2nd Tuesday of the month which delivers fresh fruits and veggies for you and yours on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.
If you are running short of food and have no funds, you are welcome to come help yourself to a bag of groceries once a month in our in-house food bank. You can also donate to this food bank by dropping off food during office hours Monday to Friday 9-4 pm.
Drop into the church to donate a book or pick up a free book to read.
FREE CLOTHING DRIVE – FALL
For the last four years Living Spirit has held a Free Clothing Drive in the Spring and Fall. This event is very well attended and the recipients of the clothing have been most appreciative. We advertise the event with Kijiji, social support agencies and the local schools in our area. If you would like to donate clothes you can drop off bags of clean clothes marked for age and gender a week before the event.
Living Spirit is a safe atmosphere that embraces all people. As such, we are currently in the process of acquiring the official status from the United Church of Canada as an Affirming Congregation. We invite you to get involved with our team for an opportunity to facilitate conversation and help LSUC become a radically inclusive community that intentionally welcomes and ministers to people of all stages and abilities—with a special emphasis on the LGBTQ community.
