Refugee Support Extended

The Covid-19 pandemic has thrown a wrench into the timeline for our refugee family to finish their acclimatization period. In light of that, the Elders feel it wise to extend our support for an additional 6 months. If you have any questions about this, please contact the church office.

We are pleased to announce that a recent congregational vote regarding a new refugee opportunity passed at the October 11th, 2020 meeting. Connect with the pastoral staff or the refugee committee for more info.

Papuan Malay Bible Translation Project

Lenice Harms, our Wycliffe missionary who is working on the Papuan Malay Bible translation project, is asking us to help provide wages for the national translators and costs for the production of the translation.  The Board of FBC Olds has approved this special project.  The funding agency which provided support  for the Wycliffe Papuan Malay Bible translation project has been unable to fund the project since November 2019.  For more information, you can read Lenice' letter here.  You can give to this project in four ways:

1) by giving through First Baptist Church

Indicate that your giving is for "Harms - Papuan Malay"

2) by mailing a cheque to:
