Sunday Service – February 25

On February 25th we’ll gather at 10:01am to worship the living and true God. We will sing, pray, learn and encourage one another. That’s really significant. The nursery and Sunday School will both be open. And during the message, our pastor will continue with a teaching series called “Christian Atheism: Saying you believe in a life-changing God but living like it doesn’t make a difference.” It’s meant to help clarify some basic-yet-powerful points which will help make your faith more robust (and true to the one we claim to follow). To see a short YouTube video which explains what it’s all about go here. Part 4 will explore what it means when we say we believe in a life-changing God… but think life is all about us. In our modern world, the quiet creed you often hear is that life is all about your own personal health and happiness. But think this way can actually bring harm and distraction to your life. Plus, it’s now what Scripture teaches. What if life wasn’t all about your own personal health and happiness, and what if the alternative was so much better? After the service, you can continue to access the paper copy registration forms for the March Break Camp. Join in. Let’s gather to praise God, to pray, to sing, to learn, and to encourage one another in faith! You’ll be glad you did.

High-Q

From March to June Westminster is running a trial project. It’s a high school study from 3 to 3:45pm on Tuesdays at Westminster. The timing coincides with the end of the school day at Eastview Secondary School. (Westminster is a short walk from Eastview — students can travel south down Nelson then east along Steel. It takes a little under 10 minutes to walk.) We’ll meet in the main-level Library, a bright room right at the front door. The time will be led by Pastor Ruttan. The name “High-Q” comes from what it is about. Yes, it’s a bit of a word play on “IQ” because high school students will be respected as thinking adults. More specifically, it’s a HIGH school-aged study which is based on the Questions of students themselves, the Bible, and apologetics (understanding/explaining the faith). Plus, there will be (good) snacks! The first High-Q gathering will be on March 6th at 3pm. The last for this trial period will be June 19th. Pastor Ruttan will explain what it’s about, and students will be invited to submit questions through an anonymous box system. That will determine what we’ll talk about the next week. If you have any questions please speak with Rev. Ruttan. You can get in touch with the form below.
