This is a ministry of fellowship and inclusion, and owes its success to a team of volunteers willing to share their time as a mentor-friend, and share in their musical or other special talents. Friendship Ministry includes people with different abilities growing deeper in their relationship with God and with each other in community.
Our group here at Covenant has been together for over 30 years. A number of churches are represented in our group, from our friends who may or may not belong to a specific church, to mentors who come from various supporting churches in Edmonton. Many of our friends and mentors have become friends outside of the group as well as being together for many years at Friendship.
Friendship is all about showing the love of Jesus to everyone who comes in our doors. Some of our friends put it this way . . "It's like a Sunday School program for adults." "It's where we listen to Pat's stories and where we see Jesus' love." "It's where we sing songs, come together in prayer, make crafts and eat snacks."
