We know that not everyone fits traditional church. Hell, most of us don’t fit traditional church. But most of us also want spirituality in our lives. Friends Church can help you find your unique spiritual journey: a journey that will not only connect you to something More but will change your entire life (and hopefully your entire world) …for the better.
Join Us - Every Sunday at 10:30am
It’s difficult to know whether to invite you to join us in person or to tell you to stay home on Sundays. The Covid numbers are concerning and we don’t want, in any way, to be a part of the problem.
And yet... we’re finding that there is a portion of our community who have told us they depend deeply on our weekly, in-person, Sunday gatherings. For these people, the live music and messages and socially distanced connection with others brings a calm and focus, inspiration, and growth that the livestream just doesn’t give them - something they say they desperately need right now. For this portion of our community we’re committed to support their spiritual and mental health as long as we can do it safely.
We are exceeding the Alberta Health Guidelines for churches, our crowd size limitations are strictly monitored, we sit 6 feet away from anyone not in our household, and we clean the building before every service. We think it's about the safest place you can go outside of just staying home.
So, with all these caveats, we want you to know that you’re welcome to join us Sundays at Friends! :)
New Series Starts Jan 3
I read a quote from an inspirational person who sends me relationship advice emails. She said, "I'm running out of things to tell people about overcoming coronavirus fatigue." I laughed out loud at that. But its true, we are all just tired, even the inspirational people are tired.
tired of the restrictions
tired of the demands
tired of the anxiety
tired of people
just plain tired
So what is the next step for us? Have you thought about taking care of you, first? In the midst of the insanity of the last year how much have you done to take care of yourself? How much time have you spend on recharging? How much have you done to recharge yourself physically? emotionally? spiritually?
We think its time to tell you all to Put Your Damn Mask On... First. Because we can't make our worlds better if we just try to give until we pass out, that's not sustainable. Sometimes we need to recharge ourselves first.
This series is about recharging you, first!
This year has been crazy, and it's not over yet. In a year when everything seems up in the air, when we are not able to be with family like we might have normally, when we can't really travel, when we can't have parties and all the stuff we normally have, what will Christmas look like?
We wanted to help. We contemplated canceling our services altogether but then we realized in a time when everything feels like it's been taken away, this is the year we need a Xmas Eve service more than ever. Our gatherings are about as safe as you can be outside of a full lockdown. There are 6' between cohorts and we are only allowing 70 adults in a space that can fit 550+. So if you need something familiar, if you need a little taste of Christmas this year, sign up to come on out.
This is a registration-only event, we will not be allowing drop-ins. So please register ahead of time if you would like to join us.
Can't wait to see you there!
