Over this past 12 months CMC has helped provide over 430 food hampers though its work with the Acadia Food Pantry. The Acadia Food Pantry (AFP) is an ecumenical and community based program that is organized and staffed by community members, service agencies and three local churches including Christ Moravian, Set up originally to serve those living in Acadia and surrounding areas, the AFP will provide food to anyone experiencing food insecurity. Volunteers are key to making this program work.
The pantry is housed at McDougall United and food is distributed on the third Tuesday of each month from 12 noon to 12:45pm. Accommodations may be made for those who are unable to attend at this time.
Donations of non-perishable food items can be dropped off at CMC .
If you would like to volunteer or receive food, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Several activities are available for young people at Christ Church. A children's message is offered during Sunday service and before young people head off to Sunday School. We have an active Youth Group (Grade 7 to Post High). Summer camp programs and weekend retreats are held at Camp Van Es, near Edmonton.
Sunday Worship Services are held at 10:30 am with coffee and fellowship following the service. An adult Bible Study group meets most Sundays at 9:00 am. Book and Bible Study groups are formed during Advent and Lent as well as other times.
Visitors are most welcome!
The Moravian Church has a strong history of mission and is recognized as the first Protestant church to send out missionaries. At Christ Church, we believe that God calls us to live out our faith through service to those in need. As such, we support a wide variety of local and international mission initiatives. International work is done in conjunction with the Moravian Board of World Missions.
Christian fellowship is an important aspect of life at Christ Church. Along with coffee time after each service, we offer several social events throughout the year, including Easter Morning Breakfast and a western lunch following a special Stampede service. We also have an active +55 Group with monthly activities including canasta twice a month. Please see the church calendar and newsletter for details and times of fellowship activities.
Everyone is welcome!
Women’s Fellowship meets monthly, usually the first Wednesday of the month. Along with business items, these meetings involve a devotional time and a special activity. Members of this group provide mutual support and encouragement during difficult and special times. Women’s Fellowship also raises funds to support the church through bake sales, candle making and catering of funerals and special events. Some members of Women’s Fellowship knit items which are donated to those in need. New participants are always welcome.
If you are interested in meeting with a group of like minded men, then come along to Men’s Breakfast, generally the first Saturday of the month at 8:30 am. Discussion topics are many and varied and you may participate or just listen. Our breakfasts are bountiful and your small breakfast donation goes to a charity of our selection. We presently have both members and nonmembers of the church and would be glad to have you join us. We would enjoy getting to know you.
If you have seen the big white tent at the corner of Southland and Acadia Drives during the first week of June, then you likely know about our Annual Garage Sale which has evolved from a small rummage sale in the church basement to a large community event. This is more than an opportunity to raise funds for church programs and missions. It allows us to give back to our neighbours. The week leading up to the garage sale is a fun fellowship time as members and friends gather together in preparation for the big sale on Saturday. If you are interested in donating items or volunteering time for this event, please contact our church office, 403-271-2700.
