We heard a good word from our Conference Superintendent, Glenn Peterson last Sunday about ‘faithfulness’. He encouraged us to open our eyes to SEE the expressions of faithfulness that are all around us – here in our community and in the field of Malmo where we worship. And he’s right! How often do we miss ‘seeing’ what God is doing because it becomes common to us – or worse yet, we become complacent and forget to be thankful for His faithfulness to us?
One of the other things that Glenn said was… “You have been put with a purpose to be faithful to what God has called, gifted, empowered and enabled you to do. Be true to who you are, to who God is, and to what He has invited you to do.” This word is for ALL of us. God has given each of us a purpose to be faithful IN and WHEREVER He has placed us. This really is the bedrock of our “what’s next” program…discerning and accepting the gifts that God has given us, stepping into them and watching God continue to be faithful in and through us here at Malmo.
“Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.”
Tomorrow (Saturday) from 5:00 to 8:00pm, there is a Youth Pool Party at the Manluk Centre in Wetaskiwin. The cost is $12 and it includes pizza, pop and swimming.
A reminder to bring your filled Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes to church this Sunday. During the service we’ll be sending them off with our love and prayers. (A big thank you to Charlene for organizing this once again this year!)
Looking forward to Sunday. See you at 9:45am for Sunday School and 11:00am for our morning Worship service.
Have a great weekend!
