Skyview Church will be gathering items for Christmas hampers this year! As a community of faith, we want to offer a meaningful way to encourage those who need a helping hand over Christmas.
There are three ways to contribute to this program. They are described below. There is no minimum amount that can be donated.
- Grocery Cards: Rather than donating food items, we ask that you donate gift cards to a local grocery store. This allows families the freedom and opportunity to choose their own meal items based on their dietary needs.
- Cash Donation: Skyview’s Hospitality team would like to purchase one present for each family member to be included in their hamper. If you wish to contribute in this way, please put cash or a cheque in the offering, clearly marked as ‘Christmas Hamper Program’ donation.
- Food Item Donation: As of December 2nd, the Christmas tree in the main foyer will have tags with suggested non-perishable food items listed on them. Simply take a tag with a food item of your choice and return the food item by placing it under the tree. Items will be delivered to families before Christmas.
Let the festivities continue after the holiday season with HtH!
Join Harmony through Harmony and Opportunity International in supporting the Investing Hope Foundation with Music for a 12th Night on January 6, 2019 at the Bella Concert Hall at 7pm. It will be a memorable evening that reminds us that the meaning of Christmas is not just about one day, but continues throughout the entire year. Tickets are $30, and are available at legacykitchens.com/concert. Or if you want access to the best seats in the house contact Victoria Wik before Dec. 17th!

missional community at Skyview
The vision behind missional community is inspired by Jesus’ lifestyle and the ways that Jesus’ closest followers sought to imitate his lifestyle together. In the Church’s efforts to make Christ-like disciples, we see three core elements in Jesus’ example:
1) Up – Communion with God
2) In – Fellowship with one another
3) Out – Hospitality, Service, and witness to God’s love beyond the Church
Missional community seeks to embody these three aspects of Jesus’ life in its gatherings. Skyview is seeking to follow this three-fold pattern in its response to God’s call for us to help people come to know Jesus and to grow into mature followers.
Autumn of 2017 gave us a season of praying and discerning God’s calling for us together. I am very thankful for the time that people invested praying, reading, and discerning together how Missional Communities might take shape in our church.
In the Winter and Spring of 2018 we are looking forward to the doors that God will open for us to serve those outside of our church, to grow together in community as we serve, and to grow in our relationship with God all the while. We’re looking to expand Skyview’s value of Generous Hospitality beyond our members and walls as we seek Communion with God and give thanks for God’s blessings.
Three or four ideas for missional community are being discussed, and we’re determining how the vision for missional community fits with our existing ministries – if you are interested in being involved in a gathering that seeks together deeper relationships with God, with each other, and with those outside our community, please contact Ryan Herbert: email@example.com.
 This example is borrowed from 3D Movements, described in Building a Discipling Culture by Mike Breen.
