We love Lloydminster and our surrounding community! As a church we are always looking for ways that we can help make life in Lloydminster better for everyone. From visiting people in the hospital, to providing food to families in need, to our annual “Pitch In Sunday” where we clean Bud Miller Park and the Lakeland College Campus (Lloydminster), we are excited to add value to our community. When we can, we partner with other organizations like The Olive Tree (Food Hampers, Mom's Group), local school divisions (Gift of Comfort, Christmas/Easter Food Hampers), and the Cancer Society (Cutter Rally for Cancer) to enhance their events, expand their reach, and augment their manpower.
Jesus cared about the world around Him, so we think we should do the same! For this reason we believe it is central to who we are as Christ followers to be involved beyond our walls. Find information below, or check out our calendar to see what outreach events we have coming up. If you would like to find out more or get involved in one of our community outreach initiatives, please visit the Serve page on our website and fill out the online form!

Gift of Comfort
Throughout the winter months, we collect new and used winter clothing to donate to local schools for children who come to school without appropriate clothing. In 2022/2023, our donations are going to Winston Churchill and Marshall School.
Through the month of February 2023, we will be switching gears and collecting spring clothing. We are asking for new or used splash pants and sweat pants (preferably in neutral colours) for students in Kindergarten to grade 6. Donations can be dropped of in the boxes in the foyer.
Operation Christmas Child
Each Christmas season we collect shoeboxes full of gifts to send out into our global community to children who wouldn't otherwise receive a Christmas gift.
