February Update Posted on Feb 8, 2022

Good afternoon church family!

 
I trust you had a great and healthy week!  I hope you are looking forward to meeting together for our worship service tomorrow at 10:30am!  If you are unable to make it in person, the service is usually uploaded to YouTube by Sunday afternoon.  Also, if you would like to hear the service over the radio (106.3fm) Sunday mornings and it's not on as the service starts, please text me at 226-920-8860 and I will make sure it gets up and running for you.

Please read the announcements as we prepare for the weeks ahead!

1) As we celebrate communion on the first Sunday of the month.  Feel free to continue to provide the bread and juice for your family, but Josh has some individually wrapped communion supplies available to the congregation to use if you prefer that method. 

2) The Bible training seminar will be held at the church every Wednesday until March 23rd, from 7-9pm.  This is going to be in replace of the Men's Bible study to allow whoever is interested to participate.  Men's regular Bible study will start up again on Wednesday, March 30th. I'm sure it's not too late to sign up for the seminar if you're interested!

3) Due to the Bible training seminar, the ladies are taking a break from their weekly Monday night study to allow any of the ladies interested in participating in the Bible training seminar to do so.  Ladies, please mark your calendars!  We will be having a Ladies Paint Night at the church, Monday, March 28th at 6:30pm.  More details to follow.  Alongside of the evening of painting Stephanie will be giving an introduction to the next ladies Bible study theme that will be starting back up on Monday, April 4th!

4) The Coldest Night of the Year Fundraiser is happening again this year, on Saturday, February 26 but only virtually for our area. The fundraiser is a 2km or 5km walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness in our community. You can participate in 2 ways: 1) Virtually walking where you self-organize either with friends or individually, walking on a route you choose.  2) By donating online in you are unable to walk. If you would like to donate, walk, or need more information or to register to walk, please speak to Anna De Rijk or go online to https://cnoy.org.
The Coldest Night of the Year is a winterrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. Team up, walk, and fundraise! It’s cold out there... but there’s no place like home.

5) Becky Salmond is updating the phone directory.  If you have any changes that need to be made or would like to be added, please contact her.

 
6) Anna is exciting to have the Girls Group able to meet in person again, and likes to thank everyone for quickly signing up to provide pre-packaged snacks for the girls.
 

God bless!

New Years Update Posted on Jan 9, 2022

Happy sunny Saturday afternoon church family!


I trust you had a great and healthy week!  There has been a lot of wonder about how our church service and weekly ministries are affected by the latest restrictions, and the answer is "Praise God, the new restrictions don't affect us, as a church, at all!!"  Saying that, I hope you are looking forward to meeting together for our worship service tomorrow at 10:30am!  If you are unable to make it in person, the service is usually uploaded to YouTube by Sunday afternoon.  Also, if you would like to hear the service over the radio (106.3fm) Sunday mornings and it's not on as the service starts, please text me at 226-920-8860 and I will make sure it gets up and running for you.
