Mission Update: God is at work in Edmonton’s inner city.Presbyterians Sharing helps Edmonton Urban Native Ministry support Native people in Edmonton’s inner city. Local congregations host a weekly Sunday worship service, followed by a fellowship meal. Weekly Tae Kwon Do classes and an annual Vacation Bible School provide healthy activities for children and youth. Four days a week the ministry’s drop-in centre offers hot meals, a food and clothing bank, the use of computers, a phone\fax service and bus tickets. With help, support and prayer, Harold was able to find sobriety and stability in his life and is now one of the most helpful volunteers at the centre. “This is evidence of God’s work,” says the Rev. Sungill Tin Choi, the ministry’s director.
We ask that you do not wear perfume when you come to church as there are people in the congregation who have an allergic reaction to scent. Thank you for your understanding.
