LIFE Direction: GT Mission

If you have been a part of Glad Tidings for even a short time, you know that our collective call is to follow Christ into the complexity of our world. We remind ourselves often that we “Live for God and Live for People”. That is why missions and the work of the GT Mission Team and Mission Partners is central to who we are as a church. The Mission Team seeks to create meaningful opportunities for our people to give to mission, to pray for missions, and to go on mission. We know that members of the GT family have a deep desire to engage with our world in response to the gospel call of Christ and the leading of the Holy Spirit. Our 2018 Mission life: As a congregation, we are partnering with

LIFE Together: Refugee Settlement Update

We are convinced that one of the things God planned for us as a church was to help refugee families who have fled their homeland because of war and violence to be able to find new, safe homes in Canada. In February 2016, we welcomed the 11-member Gurunian family from Syria. We have been able to celebrate with them as they’ve reached exciting milestones, including financial independence, and become an integral part of the GT family and of the community. We knew God had more for us to do, so in December 2016, GT applied to sponsor a second family. We learned about Sabah and Sawsan, their son Iven, and daughter Maryana (below), through connections with a church in Amman, Jordan. Sabah & Sawsan
