Okotoks is a diverse community of 25 000 souls. OAC seeks out ways to reach out to our local community in different ways inside the physical walls of the church and outside of them.
Our Benevolence Ministry exists to help those who have found themselves on hard times. Be it help with gas, groceries, or even a couple mortgage or utility bills, we will do what we can to help and show people how much God loves them! If you have a need, or know of someone who does, please contact Valerie in our church office.
Okotoks has a great Food Bank Association which faithfully provides quality food to people in need in Okotoks - coordinated by the mutual cooperaton of all evangelical Churches in Okotoks. If you're in need, you can sign up for an appointment to receive an emergency hamper, or just go down to the food bank to grab some items from the 'self-serve shelves'. Around Christmas and Easter, the Food Bank puts together gift hampers for many people in town.
Consider joining our OAC Food Bank team, and serving in the foodbank once per rotation (about every 6-8 weeks). Contact Tim Korthuis for more info.
