Tomorrow morning (Saturday), from 10am to Noon, we have our “Loving Your Online Neighbour” seminar.  Join us for a conversation about what it looks like to obey Jesus’ command to love our neighbours in the digital age (on Facebook, website comments, etc.).

This Sunday is our ‘Canada Conference Giving Sunday’.  We thought we’d take some time to share about the church planting initiative that is going on in the Conference.  I didn’t realize that there are six church plants that are currently active!  God’s work is alive and moving through the Conference, right across our country.  It’s pretty exciting and I’m looking forward to sharing that with you on Sunday.  (If you’re looking to financially support the Conference with it’s Church Planting initiative, please make your…

“Lord, I will give thanks to you with all my heart.    I will tell about all the wonderful things you have done.”Psalm 9:1 (NIRV) What have I been challenged with this week?

“Those who are wise will take all this to heart:They will see in our history the faithful love of the LORD.”Psalm 107:43 It’s been quite a journey for me these past few weeks as I dug into Malmo’s history.  To see pictures of the people who began this church and to read their stories and commitments of faith, through the good and the hard years has been amazing.  Their stories have ‘gotten under my skin’ and have made me ponder my own commitment…
