What Does "Church For The Sake of Others" Mean?
The folks at Mountain Valley Mission are working hard to develop ministry that is focussed outwards in Christian service to the Squamish Community. St. Theresa of Avila, (1515-1582) said, "Christ has no body but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes with which He looks with compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which He walks to do good. Yours are the hands, with which He blesses all the world." We believe that our task is to strive to be Jesus' hands, feet & eyes in our community.
Therefore, we pursue an intentional commitment to helping those from the Squamish are who are at risk through poverty and addictions. In conjunction with Partners in Hope Society, an Open 12 Step Meeting is offered at 7:00 each Wednesday evening. MVM also works closely with Helping Hands Homeless Shelter, the Squamish Food Bank and Community Christmas Care. In partnership with Cobs Bread, we distribute end of day product to individuals and agencies in the greatest need.
Mountain Valley Mission's Home Group Fellowship is on Thursday evenings at 7:30pm in Pastor Barclay & Mary's home at 38239 Chestnut Avenue, Squamish for fellowship, prayer and Bible study. This is an open meeting and all are welcome. Please call 604-567-5579 and let us know if you are interested in joining us.
