Locally

We believe passionately that we are a missional people — called by God to know His love and to share that love with others. our mission field is local — Lethbridge — and global.

We want to share God’s love in Word, through evangelism — introducing people to Jesus. We also want to share God’s love in action — caring for the spiritual, physical, social, and emotional needs of people and God’s creation.

Refugee Sponsorship: We sponsor a Syrian refugee family. You are welcome to get involved by helping with friendship, with English, with transportation, and financially! Contact Kathy in the office (info@firstb.net, 403-327-2082)
