Introducing Filipino Community Christian Church!

By Louanne Haugan, CBWC Director of Communications and Development 

Smiling faces, voices ringing, clapping in double-time and swaying in the pews! So much joy on the faces of those gathered to worship! As someone who loves – and I mean loves to sing, I felt like I was like catching a glimpse of heaven, as I joined Filipino Community Christian Church (FCCC) for their Sunday service.

Mountain Standard Regional Minister Dennis Stone and I were invited to bring greetings on behalf of the CBWC and share a bit about what it means to be part of the CBWC family of churches. FCCC is seeking affiliation with the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, as a relatively new church plant in the community of Northmount in northwest Calgary.

We were able to affirm the many ways that they model our shared ministry priorities. We witnessed youth involved in the worship service (cultivating leadership), relationships strengthened as they shared a meal together (investing in relationship), and newcomers from the community being loved-on and welcomed to meet Jesus in a new way (engaging in mission).

As I hugged church members goodbye after the service, my heart (and belly) was full! God is at work in this community of believers, and it’s our privilege to welcome them to the CBWC family.
