MISSIONS

Group 242.jpg

TCC is excited to be part of missions around the world. We believe that by partnering with those that train, send, and impact a local community we are able to advance the Kingdom of God beyond what we could do on our own.

We hope to be partakers with the various missionaries and ministries local, national, and world, in pointing people to Christ. We want them to see the world with God’s eyes and to feel God’s heart. With great fervour, it is of high importance here at TCC to lead the congregation in fulfilling the “Great Commission” as stated in Matthew 28:19-20 and Mark 16:15-20.

Millwoods Christian School

Millwoods Christian School has been serving the community since 1978. The school opened as an independent school under the direction of Calvary Community Church, a non-denominational church in south Edmonton. Over the years the school population steadily increased as more and more parents began to choose Christian education for their children. In 2000, the school entered into an agreement with the Edmonton Public School Board, and now operates as an alternative program with EPSB. Today, the Edmonton Public School Board offers programming that meets the goals of the alternative Christian program.
