Our Easter Communion Service will be at our regular time of 10:30AM at the Edgemont Community Association.
Our Easter Sunrise Service is at 6:30AM. Come to the cross at Nose Hill Park (West entrance) for a short service of hymns, prayers, and Scripture. A wonderful Easter tradition! (Note: A new parking lot is being built at that entrance, and Centre Street Church also has a service there, so you may want to park on Edgebrook Road NW and walk across to Nosehill to avoid the traffic.)

We flew back today and landed safe and sound. All of us are jetlagged and tired but so excited to share about our trip and the powerful moments we experienced. Thank you to all who supported us in prayers and donations.
Okie dokie, so today I woke up at 5 and as such I feel tired right now, so please excuse my lack of writing propriety. The team woke up at 5 this morning so we could go to The Great Wall!! Worth It!! It was absolutely perfect and I feel like I walked up over a thousand stairs (I dunno if I did or not tho). As a team we all sang the doxology on the wall, twice! And we sounded fantastic if I do say so myself. There was this one time when the door was covered in bees so we sang Jesus loves me to stay safe and we did, so I guess God must be real😂 At the market we all got to barter and it made me feel really good about myself cause I won every time. Anyways Gods real, and I’m tired. Love to you all, goodnight.
We had crabapple and strawberry treats! Super yummy!
Lastly there was a beautiful rock garden with 400+ year old trees and new blooming cherry blossoms. If I were the emperor this would have been one of my favorite places to spend my day.
