By the Waters of Elim, a brief respite on the long journey to the promised land...

To understand the ‘world and life view’ that brought the members of Elim together, you must turn to Exodus 15:27. The text says: ‘Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees; so they camped there by the waters’. (God’s chosen people had just encountered a barren desert and bitter waters. They were now shown a temporary, but very pleasant place, a respite from the desert voyage that they encountered on the way to the ‘Promised Land’.) This theme shows that we, as Christians living in Lethbridge and Southern Alberta, are awaiting the Promised Land.

Elim currently operates two Independent Living facilities in Lethbridge Alberta, Elim Village and Balmoral House.
