FreshStart Toronto – Refugee Sponsorship

As a church, we continue to have our hearts broken by news of lives displaced and lost due to the escalating Syrian refugee crisis. And yet we remain hopeful about the possibilities for a fresh start for Syrian refugees coming Canada. This is why a group from FreeChurch, called FreshStart Toronto, has decided to sponsor a Syrian refugee family.

Sponsorship means that FreshStart Toronto, with the help of FreeChurch and the Christie Refugee Welcome Centre, commit to supporting a Syrian family adjust to living in Toronto for at least one year. This includes meeting them at the airport, finding them accommodation, setting up their health records, enrolling in school, finding work and providing helping hands for all other needs during the time of transition.

Our team, FreshStart Toronto, has committed individual funds and we are looking to raise an additional $30K which will be used for first year’s rent and living costs.  Please consider supporting our team as we embark together on a journey with this new family.  Perhaps consider forgoing Christmas presents this year, and ask instead for donations for FreshStart Toronto.

Guard Your Heart

November was a month of many transitions for FreeChurch Toronto. Feeling called by God to a new path, our friend Cyril Guerette stepped down as Senior Pastor from FreeChurch Toronto. On November 22 he left us with this final message: Guard Your Heart.

Guard Your Heart - Toronto

We are forever grateful for Cyril’s leadership and feel so privilege to have shared this journey with him. We look forward to many visits in the future, but for now we will re-listen and continue to learn from him.

Cyril’s final FreeChurch sermon as well as our archive of sermons can be found on our Mixcloud Account.
