This fall we have been examining the disciplines of being the “Faithful Presence of Jesus,” and we have invited you, our church community, to be this Faithful Presence in your neighborhoods, your workplaces, your families, and in other places in your circle of influence.
It is our hope that these Disciplines of Faithful Presence will become the starting point for us (both as individuals and a church as a whole) to engage more holistically year round in Saskatoon with relief, rehabilitation, and development for those struggling with poverty and marginalization.
What is going on in your neighborhood? What is going on at your place of work? Your school? What is happening on your team? How is God calling you to be His presence in these situations? How can we take steps towards living generously and opening our hearts to our neighbours?
Our Faithful Presence Initiative will include three distinct focuses: Buckets of Hope in cooperation with MCC, BL4P (Building Leaders 4 Peace), and a Refugee Sponsorship. Each of these areas will have opportunities for financial contributions and opportunities to get involved with service.
If you would like to contribute financially to our Faithful Presence Initiative, please make donations payable to Forest Grove Community Church and mark “Faithful” on your envelope. We ask that you prayerfully consider how you might give to this project above and beyond your regular contributions to the church. We ask that you not divert funds from your regular giving to the church to support the Faithful Presence Initiative. Contributions to this initiative are tax deductible.
