Festivals at City Hall


Food, Folks and Friendship in the Name of Jesus Christ

Thursday, April 23, 2009


In a softened economy, the weakest of our society are pushed over the edge.  Before the downturn in the economy there were some who were holding on by their fingernails.  When the economy took a downturn, and jobs in the oil patch started leaving Alberta for BC and Saskatchewan, the pressure became worse and some people, closest to the edges of our society, were pushed onto the streets making the homeless problem worse.  With this in mind, Street Church Ministries is holding two festivals at the steps of City Hall to serve the needs of the poor in style.

“Calgary’s homeless population is in a desperate state.  Fortunately God continues to provide abundant blessings so that we can bless those who feel beaten down and forgotten by society.  Jesus said freely you have received, freely give.  In this spirit we give without reservation; love, food and hope for the future.  These people just need someone to tell them that they are loved and to show them that they are important,” stated Bogdan Stobiecki of Street Church Ministries.


Street Church Ministries will be providing tripple-A steaks to everyone who comes.  There will be singing and a sense of community and service of fellow man.  The ministry is inviting those who need a pick me up and anyone with a heart to serve the homeless to come out and join in.

"We are so excited to invite you to our next festival. There will be two days of celebration Sunday April 26 at 2 pm and Wednesday April 29 at 11 am at the gate of the City – the front steps of City Hall, Calgary. There will be steaks, gifts, beverages, music and of course preaching of the gospel in the name of Jesus Christ for all to hear the unchangeable message of hope, especially in this time when so many are suffering. There are always plenty of jobs to do for everyone who is willing to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and be a blessing to the poorest of the poor in Calgary.", said Art Pawlowski lead pastor of the ministry.
