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, are awaiting the Promised Land.
The Elim Society for Senior's Care is a faith-based charity created in 1969 by Reformed Christian People in Southern Alberta to address the housing needs of their seniors. We desire to provide safe, secure and affordable housing with activities that support Christian faith and lifestyle.
Our goal is to look after seniors in an atmosphere that promotes and endorses our beliefs in a caring communal setting.
We operate two independent living facilities: Balmoral House and the Elim Village in Lethbridge Alberta.
