Opportunities to Serve Others

Christmas Eve 2018
On December 24, we are looking forward to getting together with our friends at OCBC at their building (31 Graham Ave.) for our annual community Christmas Eve service. Our main gathering will be at 4:30 p.m., and a fun musical hootenanny will happen afterwards, at 7:00 p.m. If you’re in town for Christmas, be sure to mark this on your calendars, and invite your family and friends out with you!
Do you feel blessed this Christmas season? Wanna give out of the abundance given to you? We're collecting non-perishable foods, kid’s toys and baby clothes in the month of December to send up to a less privileged community in Rapid Lake, Quebec. Please consider bringing everything you can to give to this community this Christmas season.
We continue to plan to officially begin 2 services starting on January 6! The service times will be 9:00 and 11:00. Children’s Sunday School will be offered during the first service, and Children’s Church in the second. Our prayer time will shift to 10:30, between the services. Are you ready to adjust your schedules? Have you gotten all your questions answered? Now’s the time to get ready!
In addition to Joe’l and Ana’s ongoing pregnancy, we are excited to let you know that 4 other couples are also now expecting new babies due to arrive in 2019: Andrew & Eloise Kerr, Josh & Jane Nevelizer, Ben & Grace Okum, and Jamie & Jahleel Williams. Be sure to congratulate them when you see them, and be in prayer for these pregnancies.
Some in our church family have sensitivities to scents and chemicals. For the health and consideration of others, we’d like to ask everyone to please use unscented hygiene and cosmetic products on Sunday mornings. Thank you for your consideration.
If English is your second language and having a copy of the sermon would help you understand better, please let us know and we’ll get you a printed copy of the sermon.
