Now & Beyond
Sunday mornings are filled with amazing worship, an inspiring message, Kids Zone for children ages 4-11 and a family friendly environment. Throughout the week we have programs for all ages. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, we would love to journey with you! At Living Faith we believe a key way to understanding and experiencing the love, freedom and fulfillment of Jesus better, is by connecting in with a church community.
Becoming Living Faith
Rev. Peter Kerychuck came in the mid 1950's and took over as minster from Rev. Samuel Peregrym. He continued conducting services in both Ukrainian and English and the congregation steadily grew. The church was re-named Living Faith Pentecostal Tabernacle and a new building was opened and dedicated on April 7, 1974, which continues to be the place of fellowship to this day. Services are now held in English only, but the same desire to move in the power of the Holy Spirit and reach our community with God's love remains.
Pentecostal service began in private homes in 1927 and a meeting tent was eventually erected in a field which is now the corner of 47th St & 54th Ave in Lloydminster. In 1940 Rev Samuel Peregrym and family moved to Lloydminster and began conducting Ukrainian Pentecostal services. Shortly after Fred Shorland and his wife moved to Lloydminster, and with his help, they began holding dual language services. A permanent church building was constructed for the growing congregation, and in 1954 the Pentecostal Tabernacle of Lloydminster was opened. This ended the home & tent services.
