Greetings visitors to our website!
So good to have you visiting our site. From time to time I write a reflective piece here, or give an update on news or upcoming events. As we enter into the season of Lent, I want to invite those of you who are seeking a faith community to consider visiting our church, and spending time in worship and community with us. In Olds, we worship at 10:00 am on Sundays, and in Sundre at 1:30 pm.
I have just returned from a bit of holiday time - I escaped winter to find a little green on the west coast. Such a refreshing time, that gave me renewed energy for the rest of our Alberta winter.
As I was doing some online reading, I found an article that talks of that age old question of how we attract "younger" people to our faith communities. Its title makes it sound like it's all about finding a pastor or minister to do that work of bringing in young families, but really, it speaks to the truth that the work is really the work of the entire community, not just the dear pastor, and the key is to focus not on what those young people will bring to us, but how we can help nuture their spirits, and what we might offer to them.
It offers some fine nuggets of wisdom, so I share it with you. You'll find the link to it here.
For now, may God's blessing be upon you! Thanks again for visiting the site. Come back soon!
Blessings, Tammy (Reverend Tammy Allan)

Jas 5:16 - Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
