Meetings will be held weekly at 1 p.m., Saturday afternoon at Legacy Church of the Nazarene, 9012 160 St., Surrey. Sessions will run for 13 consecutive weeks with a break at Christmas.

This program is non-denominational but features biblical concepts to help participants heal from their grief. Sessions will be led by Keith and Barbara Roberts who have both experienced the trauma of losing a spouse.

Prayer Ministry

Jesus said that for us to enter God's Kingdom we must become as little children. The intention is for us to recognize our total dependency upon our Heavenly Father in a similar way that a small child is totally dependent on his or her earthly parents.

As a result of our dependence we all need help and Jesus made it clear that our Father is ever willing to provide our needs. All we need to do is ask and trust (Matthew 6:7-11; Philippians 4:6-7). Following the many examples in the New Testament where we are told to pray for one another, our Prayer Ministry is committed to praying for those in need who request prayer. Prayer requests are kept strictly confidential.

Worries and struggles in your life? Or just something weighing on your heart, feel free
to ask for prayer.

 

card care ministry

Card Care Ministry

Knowing that friends are praying and thinking of you during times of loss, suffering or crisis is so encouraging especially when your circumstances prevents you from having personal contact with them.

Our Card Care ministry reaches out to such people by sending them personalized cards. Each card is signed by our members with encouraging and uplifting comments added to help support people through their various trials.

You can contact Debbie Minke regarding the Card Care ministry by emailing her.

Tele Care Ministry

Shut-ins and those who are suffering prolonged absence from fellowship due to reasons beyond their control are cared for by our Tele-Care ministry who reaches out to them via the telephone in order to provide them ongoing personal contact. Being able to hear a friendly voice and relay any needs they may have to the congregation helps people feel less vulnerable and isolated and more included in the body of the church.

For more information, please feel free to email Debbie Minke.

Open Arms Ministry

Open Door ministry girl and boyLouise and girl activity in Open Door MinistryOpen Door Ministry boyOur local ministry is to reach out to single mothers and their pre-school children in the Surrey area. Understanding the challenges and stresses of raising young children without a father, we strive to provide the mothers with a welcome weekly break from their hectic routine. Each Saturday, from 12:00 noon until 3:30 pm the mothers are given the opportunity to relax, receive encouragement, mentoring and build friendships with other single mothers, while their children are taken care of by members of our caring staff.

We serve them lunch and the children are provided play time and crafts, with outdoor activities when the weather permits, and a nutritious lunch is served before they leave. Twice a month we provide them the opportunity for a discussion on spiritual and life issues.

Our Open Arms is part of a ministry project that began 30 years ago in North Vancouver and now has chapters in North and East Vancouver, Abbotsford, Surrey and Squamish.

Our ministry involves 24 member volunteers, some working with the children, others with the mothers, and others working in the kitchen and the clothing bank. Our prayer is that God will help us serve these mothers and children with the love and concern of Christ that will be a support and help for them in their time of need.

Our Ministry Coordinators are the leadership team at 604-532-3750
