MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... are helping to create new ministries in Canada, including Parkland First Presbyterian Church in Spruce Grove, Alberta. This congregation describes itself as a group of young families and retired seniors who follow the teachings of Jesus, value hospitality, care deeply about their community, place an emphasis on education, and love to eat together! Worship is highly interactive and multi-media driven, and provides children with the opportunity to play and express themselves. Over the past year, a youth group and board of managers have been established and attendance is growing. The congregation continues to search for land to purchase so that one day they might worship in their own building. Let us pray for Parkland First PC as it grows together as a family, forming strong connections with one anoher and with God.
