SOAR Saskatchewan

SOAR Saskatchewan is a 10 day discipleship and mission training program run by MB Mission. It happens here in Saskatoon during the February school break. Teams from around Saskatchewan eat, sleep, learn, and worship together and then go out into the city to learn and serve.

Throughout the 10 days participants will spend a weekend of orientation including a learning tour through the vulnerable sector of Saskatoon, a day focused on prayer, and some team time. They’ll then spend Monday to Friday working with a ministry assignment in Saskatoon. In the past SOAR has partnered with organizations like The Bridge on 20th, The Lighthouse, The Friendship Inn, and Central Haven Senior’s Care Home.

This year Forest Grove Community Church hopes to send a youth & young adult team.

Here are other specific details you need to know:

PRE-TRIP INFORMATION MEETING: We will be holding a SOAR 2019 information meeting for potential participants and their parents on Monday, Nov. 5th at 7:30pm at Forest Grove Community Church. If you would like to come, please RSVP to Chandra at chandra@forestgrovecc.com by Sunday, Nov. 4th.

WHO: Teams from around Saskatchewan co-ordinated by MB Mission.

WHERE: Saskatoon, SK – You will sleep, eat and train at Forest Grove Community Church. Activities will be around the city, particularly in the core areas of Saskatoon.

WHEN: February 14-23, 2019 (you will have to miss school on Friday, Feb. 15th).

LEADER: Alex Ebert

COST: The total cost of SOAR is $450.00. Each individual must contribute $250.00 on their own, paid to Forest Grove Community Church by cash, cheque (payable to Forest Grove Community Church or FGCC), debit or credit (additional service fees apply) during our office hours, Monday-Friday 9am-4:30pm. The additional $200.00 per individual will be raised together through a fundraiser and through sending out support letters that ask for prayer and donations.
