One of our key focus areas at Faith River is to build strong church family relationships. We continually strive to be a church that is warm and welcoming. While some of our adult ministries seek to provide care and support, others simply aim to develop friendships by working and playing together with friends inside and outside the church community. Newcomers are always welcome and encouraged to join in. Following are a variety of ministries in which you may want to become involved – keep updated with specific events through our website calendar.
Adult Gathering is a small group setting that enhances the Sunday worship experience through teaching and discussion of relevant biblical topics. September-June at 9:30-10:15 am with the exception of some holidays. We believe in the Holy Spirit's presence to help us communicate with love and discern with wisdom. We encourage scholarly teaching and effective methods in facilitating the learning process.
We desire to know scripture deeply - a local paraphrase of Colossians 3:16-17 might read "Make sure the teachings of Jesus take root in your life, and be earnest and sincere in how you (plural) teach and learn from one another. Use creative and beautiful teaching methods that inspire you and remind you to always be thankful for what Christ has given. As individuals and as a faith community, you are diverse in your commitments and activities - my prayer is that Christ remain central in and to all you do."
ALL are welcome to join us!
Faith River Conversational English Class is a group of loving people from the church congregation who provide a relational environment and a comfortable setting in which international people, whose native language is not English, can practice their English skills with native English speakers. We hope they will explore and relate to Canadian culture, and build deep friendships with church Christians and students who attend the class, through cultural teaching, discussion, and reading God's Word. The class goes from 9:00 to 10:15 every Sunday morning from September to June, providing transportation to those who need it, as well as snack and beverages.
An integral part of the friendship, care and spiritual growth that we value at Faith River. A Care Group typically consists of 6 to 12 people who meet together for encouragement, ministry, socializing, and Bible study. Meetings are on various evenings of the week and in different homes in and around Saskatoon. God doesn’t want any of us to walk alone, and Care Groups are a great way to get to know others in a relaxed setting.
The Faith River Young Adults meet weekly from September to May. Our desire is to form intentional relationships through times of fellowship, worship, service and prayer. Young Adult attendees are encouraged to cultivate intergenerational relationships within the church family. For more information on what we do, check out our Facebook page at Faith River Young Adults.
Faith River Christian Fellowship values the contribution made by our church seniors. We meet for occasional noon luncheons often with visiting missionaries that are supported by the fellowship. We want to look into regular fellowship luncheons and possible regular mid-day Bible study.
