by Darren Sinke, CEO - Emmanuel Home
Back in 2015, the Board of the Emmanuel Seniors Living Society took the first steps in seriously exploring the idea of a second seniors’ home in Edmonton. The concept was readily embraced by Society members, and work began to sift through options. Many people contributed to the refining of the vision, and the humble generosity of our supporting community made the vision a reality through the purchase of a 4 acre piece of land in the mature Inglewood neighborhood, and in close proximity to a number of supporting churches.
With thanks to the Lord, we were able to break ground this past summer, and the Lighthouse construction has begun! Phase 1 of the Lighthouse will include 101 suites, fantastic common areas to build community, a commercial kitchen for meals, and all of the same services that have been provided at Emmanuel Home for almost 50 years. By replicating the successful model at Emmanuel Home, the Society will be able to provide a quality Christian environment for more seniors in the greater Edmonton area.
We look forward to welcoming new residents in the beginning of 2025. We look to the Lord for His continued faithfulness during construction, and rely on Him to sustain us as we live in community together!
Partnership with Christian Credit Union
The Christian Credit Union has journeyed alongside the Emmanuel Seniors Living Society throughout its history, and is as much a part of the Society’s story as anyone else. Not only has the Christian CU been at the front of planning capital projects and securing construction and long-term financing, it also provides ongoing business banking services for the Society’s daily operations. We appreciate Christian CU's commitment to supporting the larger Christian community, and its focus on stewardship, quality, and service makes the Christian CU the right partner for the Emmanuel Seniors Living Society as we seek to honour the Lord and serve
