WE ARE HISTORY MAKERS

As a church, we want to ask how we might impact history within our neighbourhood. How far we will go to bring the grace of Jesus to our community? We have an opportunity to fuel a different kind of fire in Elmwood — one that spreads within the flames of compassion, grace, love, and truth. Every time God’s grace flows through His church and breaks into someone’s life we get to be a part of history being written into eternity. This is why we are relentlessly committed to expanding our impact by developing our ministry venues right in the heart of Elmwood.
