Pastoral Care

Children’s Ministry – The Children’s Ministry at Bow Valley exists to support parents and to provide environments where children can encounter God and learn His Word.  We believe that every child is made in God’s image and that God has a special place in His Big Story just for them. Our prayer is that God will develop in them a heart that longs to know Christ, to follow Him, and to make Him known. 

Youth Ministry – Our youth ministry exists to reach students for Jesus Christ and connect them through meaningful relationships with each other and caring adult leaders.  We seek to grow students who honour God with their lives and serve others out of a genuine passion for Him. 

Connection Groups – These groups are a vital part of church life.  We have groups for young adults, parents, couples, men, women, experienced adults, and more.   Serving in Connection Groups will involve anywhere from leading and facilitating Bible Study and discussion, to supporting with prayer, hosting gatherings of group members, and caring for each other through challenging times (loss, illness, stress) or in celebration (marriage, birth of babies, life success).
