The Care and Compassion Team

of Riverbend Lutheran Church recognizes that strength from within the church body will allow us to be more effective beacons of light in our community. The team exists to provide support to our church families who may be hurting and need some assistance. Some of those needs include:
• Dealing with physical and emotional illness
• Dealing with the death and loss
• Dealing with significant life changes at home, like the birth of a baby
• Care and assistance provided might include:
• Providing meals (or baking/snacks)
• Visitation in the home or hospital
• Cards, flowers, phone calls, or emails to provide encouragement
• Child care to provide respite care
• Transportation (to appointments, grocery stores....)
If you know of anyone who might benefit from assistance, or if you would like to become involved in the Care and Compassion Team, please contact Pastor Sye at 780 430 7382. 


God says to “Love your neighbour as yourself”. As a church family, we are so much more than neighbours; we are brothers and sisters in Christ. May our desire to provide care and compassion to those who are hurting and in need be a mission worth investing who we are and what we have to build up the body of Christ.U of A CAMPUS  BIBLE STUDIES
