Friendship Group

Friendship is a ministry that shares God’s love with People who have intellectual disabilities. This ministry is lovingly ran with the support of Woodynook CRC and Bethel CRC. Our mentors come from local churches including Wolf Creek Community Church, Woodynook CRC and Bethel CRC to name a few. Our friends come from various group homes and private homes in the Lacombe area.

Friendship is all about building relationships between mentors and friends. It is not always clear who is learning from whom! It is a process of bringing the family of God together to learn more about God’s love. We start each evening with group singing and prayer. The lesson is then shared by a story teller. This often involves group participation and drama. This is followed by one-on-one time where friends and mentors go over the lesson; this will include discussion and an activity. We always finish the evening with fellowship and a snack!

Through out the year we have special nights that include a Christmas Craft, a Christmas Party, Singing at the Lacombe Seniors Lodge, a talent night and a big year end banquet with a play performed by Friendship. One Sunday a year we are involved in a Sunday Friendship Service.

We meet at Bethel CRC on Monday Nights from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm during the months of October - April and once a month in the summer.
