Happening News

We’ve got a great worship service planned for you…music, scripture, prayer time, special music, children’s lesson, a message from God’s word…and the Gideons will be with us, sharing about their ministry. (We’ll be giving you an opportunity to support them financially during the offering time, so if you’re able to help out, make your cheques payable to ‘The Gideons’.)  All of this begins Sunday at 11:00am.  And of course we have Sunday School too, beginning at 9:45am.
And don’t forget to change your clocks on Saturday night.  SPRING FORWARD one hour!  And don’t worry – the coffee will be on at church!  😉
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Sunday!

It’s March! Weekend News

Happy March!

We’re into another month already.  How quickly time is flying by!
This Sunday, our morning worship service will be focused around ‘Forgiveness’.  The music, the scripture and the message that Randall will be sharing, will all point us to the Lord’s table, as we share in Holy Communion and remember that Our Journey to the Cross leads us Through Forgiveness.
The Family Project continues in the evening at 6:30pm.  All are welcome and child care is available.
I’m looking forward to Sunday, and I hope to see you there.
Enjoy your weekend.

This Weekend…

Thanks for praying yesterday for Malmo.  I know that a number of you gathered together to pray – we did too as staff here in the office.  Isn’t it cool how God meets with us all, in our individual spaces?  And how He hears ALL the prayers that we say for the church?  An amazing God that we serve! 🙂

This is your last chance to get your changes into the next edition of our Church Directory. Let me know by the weekend, if any of your information has changed.  We’d love to have the next directory up-to-date…well, at least for a little while!  😉
We’ve got a little bit of everything planned for you on Sunday…
 
At 9:45am, we have Sunday School classes for all ages.  Adults – coffee is on in the kitchen, so help yourself before class.
 
Our worship service begins at 11:00am.  It’s already the 3rd Sunday in Lent, as we’re continuing our journey through this Lenten season. We hope you come to church with a sense of this journey that we are all on.  Our hope and prayer is that the songs that we sing, the prayers that are said, and the teaching that is heard, will encourage you in the coming days and in the personal journey that you are on.
And then after the worship service, we gather downstairs for coffee & fellowship time. 
 
Something unique that is happening after the coffee fellowship time, is an ALL CHURCH HAYRIDE at Matt’s Cabin.  Everyone is welcome for a fun time out to enjoy this amazing February weather that we’ve been having!  And remember – Pastor Randall encouraged you last week that it’s okay to wear your ‘hayride clothing’ to church!  So don’t feel like you need to go home first, before you head out to Matt’s cabin.  Oh!  And if you’re able, please bring your hot-dog roasting sticks and a snack to share (salad or chips or dessert).  Hot dogs and drinks will be provided.
Thanks folks!  See you on Sunday!

Weekend News

Good afternoon Folks!

We’ve been receiving reports & news from some of you who participated in the Thursday Lenten Prayer.  Thank you so much for gathering to pray (whether corporately or individually), on behalf of Malmo.  It encourages us, here in the office, more than you’ll ever know!  So thank you!  🙂
I’m working on the Next Edition of our Phone Directory.  If you or anyone in your family have a change of information, (ie.  cell phone, email address, etc.). could you please let me know, by the end of February?  I’ll be printing the new books in the beginning of March.
Here’s your happenings for the weekend…
There is a Youth Skating Social at New Sweden, on Saturday at 7:00pm.  Please bring your skates, a game to play and a snack to share.  (BEFORE you head over to New Sweden, please check the Youth Facebook Page, in case there are issues with the ice, with this nice weather that we’ve been having.  Pastor Marc will post a notice, if there are any changes to the event.)
This Sunday is the second Sunday in our Lenten Journey.  The scripture you’ll be hearing, the responsive readings that we’ll be doing, and the sermon that Pastor Randall is sharing, all relate to our journey through this Lenten season.  So come with a ready heart to hear what God might be saying to you, during this Lenten journey.
This Sunday is also our ‘Canada Conference Giving Sunday’.  We’ll be sharing a bit about our Conference and the work that they do among us.  (If you’d like to financially support the Conference, please make your cheques out to ECCC.)  If you’d like to know more about our Conference, check out their website at www.covchurch.ca .
Sunday evening at 6:30pm, The Family Project is meeting again.  Everyone is welcome to attend, and childcare is available.
Enjoy your Friday and upcoming weekend, and I’ll see you on Sunday!

Lenten Weekend News

Good ‘Blustery Morning’ to you all!

I hope you’re staying warm & protected from that wind out there!
Today, two of our people are flying to warmer weather!  Rob B. & Amy K. are on their way to Texas to meet the rest of the Ecuador Missions team.  From there, they all fly together to Quito, and then journey on to Cayambe, Ecuador.  Would you be praying for them today – and for the coming week, as they work with the local people and with Joel & Kim (area leaders)?
I’m working on the Second Edition of our Church Directory.  If there has been ANY CHANGES in your contact information, (phone, cell, email, etc.), please give me those changes by the end of February, as I’ll be printing the directory shortly after that.  Thanks!!
This Sunday is the first Sunday in Lent.  Our focus during these next 40 days of Lent will be PRAYER.  So much prayer is needed – for our church, for our people, for our world.  Pastor Randall will be sharing more about that on Sunday.  This Sunday is also Valentine’s Day.  Pastor Marc has a special ‘Valentine’s Children’s Lesson’ planned for the kids.  We’ll also be seeing a video & hearing about our ‘Bible Memory Verse Program’.  And of course, our service will also be filled with worship, music, God’s word and fellowship.  A beautiful way to spend a morning, don’t you think?  🙂
That’s all for this weekend.  Enjoy your Friday and I’ll see you all soon!

“But I am trusting you, O Lord, saying “You are my God!”  My (our) future is in YOUR Hands.” ~Psalm 31:14-15a

The Ecuador missions trip is coming up soon!  Rob B. & Amy K. will be heading out & meeting up with the rest of the team from across Canada, one week from today.  They are looking for a few supplies to take to Ecuador.  Here’s what they need:
  • face paint/brushes
  • skipping ropes
  • soccer balls/pumps
  • crayons & chalk
  • colouring pages/paper
  • footballs
  • bean bags
  • friendship bracelet supplies

If you’re able to help out with this, please bring the supplies THIS SUNDAY, and give them to Rob or Amy.
We’ve got a full day planned for you this Sunday!
  • Sunday School at 9:45am
  • Worship service at 11:00am.  We are a church that prays – and there’s lots that we’ll be praying for on Sunday – Rob & Amy heading to Ecuador, the new church leaders and of course a chance for you to share any requests that are on your heart.  The morning will also include singing, hearing God’s word, fellowshipping and sharing together in Holy Communion.
  • The Family Project continues at 6:30pm.  All are welcome and child care is available.

Next week on Wednesday, we begin our journey through lent to the cross.  The Canada Covenant Conference publishes a booklet called, ‘The Lenten Reader’ that takes you through the 40 days of lent, with devotional readings.  We have a few printed copies available for you, on the Malmo Info table in the foyer.  You can also read the devotional online, by going to: http://issuu.com/canadacovenantchurch/docs/lenten_reader2016
