Our gifts for Mission & Service support ministries like Our Place Society in Victoria, British Columbia, which offers programs for those on the margins that make everyone feel like family.

One of the proudest moments of the Victoria Pride Parade was when a young pre-op transgender woman said that she never felt brave enough to walk in the parade until the day she marched with the staff and family of Our Place.

It says a lot about the unique downtown centre for Victoria’s most vulnerable that this woman felt included in Our Place’s definition of family. It is one thing to preach hope and belonging, but quite another to live it.

Loving our neighbours is at the core of Our Place, as all who come through its doors become family.

If Mission & Service giving is already a regular part of your life, thank you so much! If you have not given, please join me in making Mission & Service giving a regular part of your life of faith. Loving our neighbour is at the heart of our Mission & Service.
