Jr Youth Group Resumes

Our Youth Coordinator Julie Cunha organizes the Jr Youth Group. In the 2017-2018 season, the Junior group (grades 5 to 8) will meet on Sunday afternoons (resuming on October 15th), but the Senior group will have their own small group led by Julie as a part of our small groups program (date to be decided). The Junior youth group sessions will happen on Sunday afternoons from 2 to 3:30pm at the church. We use a lively curriculum, talk faith, have fun, enjoy snacks, and form relationships as we talk about and grow in our faith together. It’s going to be a great autumn!

Sunday Service – October 22

On Sunday, October 22nd we gather to worship, pray, praise, learn and encourage one another! The nursery will be open. And in the Sunday School we’ll have the popular “Sunday Buddies” program — a time where, once a month, the different ages work together on an important biblical theme. This Sunday it will be putting God first. During the service we’ll celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism for Jesse Luke. Plus, we’ll have a 5-minute “Stewardship Focus.” During the message our pastor will start a two week mini-series called “Rich Man, Poor Man: What makes the rich poor, the poor rich, and how to be wealthy without any money.” Why do many rich people feel like they’re missing something? Why do many poor people seem to have something that others don’t? And how can we live wealthy lives regardless of how much money we have?” Since Jesus talks a lot about the connection between money and the heart, so will we. Our pastor will take us into the Bible (and also the “box exercise”) to help us think it through. Let’s honour God together!  in. It will be an uplifting Sunday!

Sunday Service – October 29

On Sunday, October 29th we gather to worship, pray, praise, learn and encourage one another! The nursery will be open. And so will the Sunday School. One of the exciting and unique things about Sunday is that we’ll also have the confirmation of several of our young people, who are taking the step to make the faith their faith. During the message our pastor will offer Part 2 in a two week mini-series called “Rich Man, Poor Man: What makes the rich poor, the poor rich, and how to be wealthy without any money.” Why do many rich people feel like they’re missing something? Why do many poor people seem to have something that others don’t? And how can we live wealthy lives regardless of how much money we have?” Since Jesus talks a lot about the connection between money and the heart, so will we. Our pastor will take us into the Bible to help us think it through. [If you missed Part 1 called “When possessions possess you” you can hear the podcast here.] Toward the end of the service we’ll also have a 5-minute Stewardship Focus. Kim Sanderson will explain the difference between two important groups who bless others — “Presbyterians Sharing” and “Presbyterian World Service and Development.” Let’s honour God together!

“There, Care & Prayer” – Pastoral Care Workshop

Sunday, October 29, 2017, Noon. Bring a bagged lunch, snacks will be provided. This worship is called, “There, Care & Prayer: The Art of Visiting the Sick.” Nobody enjoys being sick, but most of us will be sick at some point in our lives and many will spend time in the hospital. Being sick often brings a sense of fear, loneliness, and isolation; but as Christian visitors we can help soothe those feelings. Whether thinking about visiting the sick makes you nervous, or you are super confidant about visiting, please join us at this afternoon workshop to learn how we can journey alongside those who are sick with compassion. Together, we will explore the goal of visiting, how to prepare for a visit, and how to listen with wisdom, discretion and sensitivity. We’ll cover some practical do’s and don’ts about visiting with grace. And we’ll provide you with a few tools for your visiting toolbox

Remembrance Sunday – November 5

November 5th is Remembrance Sunday. It is always held the Sunday prior to Remembrance Day. We gather in gratitude, and give thanks to God for his promise of peace, and to honor the memory of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and who have served and died in the horrors of war. We also gather to be renewed in the effort of peace and hope for a better world. Our service begins with the Act of Remembrance. This includes singing God Save The Queen, the laying of the wreath, The Last Post, Reveille, and O Canada. One of the children read In Flander’s Fields during the kids’ time. There will be nursery and Sunday School. Toward the end of the service, the children rejoin us from Sunday School, and together, we light the “candles of remembrance of hope.” This has also become a meaningful part of our remembrance. People are invited up (if they wish) to light a candle at the front in memory of someone who has died in war, or as a prayer for peace. (Please also note that Daylight Savings time begins on this day.) We will also hold a clothing drive for the clients of the David Busby Street Centre. They have requested any warm winter adult clothing, and also men’s and women’s underwear (any size). Thank you for your generosity! Together, let’s praise and glorify the Prince of Peace.

Sunday Service – November 12

On Sunday, November 12th we’ll gather to praise the living God! As we do so, we’ll pray, worship, sing, learn and encourage one another. The nursery will be open. And in the Sunday School there will be the first practice for this year’s Christmas Pageant. During the service, our pastor will address this topic: “What is Spiritual Warfare? Why you’re already in battle and what to do about it.” Spiritual warfare is something that not a lot of people have thought very seriously about. However, it’s something that affects all of us. So a better understanding of what it is and what to do about it is essential living a more victorious and abundant life as a follower of Jesus, not only for yourself, but for those around you. During the kids’ time, our pastor and Youth Coordinator will also present November’s Orange Idea — an idea to help individuals and families live out their faith at home. Join in! You’ll be glad you did!
