Chaplain’s Message:

“Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” (Psalm 100:3, ESV)

As we enjoy the beautiful season of Spring here in Alberta, may we be reminded of our God who brings new life! It was He who made each of us, and it is He who desires to bring new life into each of us every day! May you experience that life and light as only He can give – TODAY!
