NEIGHBOURLINK PARKLAND- Neighbourlink Parkland is a collaboration of Christian ministries in Parkland County, Stony Plain, and Spruce Grove, Alberta. Together they provide help to our neighbours in need not provided by governmental or not- for-profit agencies. Due to Covid-19 there has been a 100% increase in calls for help compared to the same month last year. As well, the complexity of calls has increased, as many individuals have expressed hopelessness in their current situation and are overwhelmed with mounting financial issues, homelessness, food insecurity, joblessness, COVID related childcare/schooling issues, and conflict/violence in relationships.
SPAC GENERAL FUND- This December we want to invite you, once again, to give generously through our General Fund. Your gift to the General Fund helps to further the vision of helping each person in our church and in our community experience fullness of life in Jesus. Our December goal for the General Fund is $104,000.00 in order to come out of the last six months of 2020 without a deficit.
For giving options please visit our Give page and be sure to designate it to Neighbourlink or General Fund.
We are so grateful for the generosity of our SPAC family toward our church and community.
