The Story of St. Pierre Bible Fellowship
The St. Pierre Bible Fellowship was born out of a dream to see people encounter the person of Jesus Christ and have their lives transformed by His grace.
In the mid-1970s, our founding families began praying about establishing an evangelical church in the village of St. Pierre Jolys, Manitoba. In September 1977, the first services of our church were held in the homes of our founding members. From the beginning the church had a strong emphasis on community, caring for each other, and strong Biblical teaching. These were key values that led to naming the church the St. Pierre Bible Fellowship.
The church soon grew too large to be held in a house, and the Sunday services moved to a local school gymnasium. Not long after this God provided the church its first building through the purchase of the St. Pierre Pool Hall and Barber Shop. After a few renovations, this became the official meeting place of the St. Pierre Bible Fellowship Church until Feb. 1982, when the church built its first sanctuary at the current 488 Lavoie location.
St. Pierre Bible Fellowship always focused on caring for people and meeting their needs. It always tried to be inclusive and to receive people openly and was very creative in the way it "did church". By 1995 an expansion to the existing building was needed, and by the grace of God, and through the generosity of His people, the church was able to hold its first service in a wonderful new facility in 2005.
Over the years the St. Pierre Bible Fellowship Church has engaged in many different initiatives, but through it all, the desire to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ clearly proclaimed has always been the primary purpose and vision of the church. That vision continues on today as we strive to encounter the person of Jesus Christ and see Him transform lives.
