Joining Jesus in His Renewing Work

We are a church longing to see our city renewed as we follow Jesus Christ.

Jesus has a great heart for poor, for children, for the outsiders–He cares for them. Jesus also loves the Church and laid down His life for it.  As a church we want to be a vehicle for expressing His care for towards the lowly and His heart to see churches renewed. To that end, we seek to support and partner with organizations endeavouring to love the marginalized and support the mission of the church.

Cascades has partnered with Lookout to run an Emergency Weather Shelter (EWS) for the last three winter seasons. This year we brought up the the possibility of becoming a Temporary Shelter allowing us to operate nightly in the Winter months and provide to more resources towards operating the shelter and resources supports for guests. Unfortunately, we were informed this was not possible.
