Weekly News-March 2

February is over.  March is here.  Can I hear an exuberant “Yay!”??  For me, March feels like the promise of Spring really IS going to come true – even if we still continue to get the odd snowstorm! 😉

With the beginning of a new month, comes the remembrance of all that Jesus has done for us, as we approach the Lord’s Table.  We’re looking forward to celebrating Holy Communion together again – along with worship and prayers and so many other things that we are thankful for.

So come and join us this Sunday at 9:45am for Sunday School and 11:00am for the Worship Service.

See you then!

This Sunday is our ‘Canada Conference Giving Sunday’.  We’ll be sharing with you a bit about the latest news that’s coming from the Conference.  (If you would like to financially support the ongoing work of the Conference, please make your cheques payable to E.C.C.C. and we’ll forward those on for you.)

On Saturday February 24th at 10:00am, we are hosting a seminar entitled “Boundaries”.  Boundaries are personal property lines that define who you are and who you are not, and what you will or won’t allow in your life.  In this seminar we will look at how to respond to the many demands on your time, energy, focus, money and relationships. What does it look like to set limits and still be loving?   This seminar is lead by Pastor Marc & Dixie and is suitable for ages 14 & up.  Childcare is available.  We hope that you’ll be able to join us!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you on Sunday – 9:45am for Sunday School and 11:00am for our worship service.

Weekly News – February 9th

This Sunday is “Transfiguration Sunday” – the Sunday that commemorates when Jesus went up the mountain with Peter, James & John and is transfigured and becomes radiant in glory before their eyes.  Can you just imagine, if you were one of the disciples, what that might have been like?  Almost unimaginable, yet it’s an important & encouraging event that is recorded for us in three of the gospels, as well as in 2 Peter 1:16-18.  Pastor Randall will be sharing more about the Transfiguration in our Sunday morning worship service, so I hope you and your family can join us this Sunday – 9:45am for Sunday School and 11:00am for Worship.

Enjoy your weekend!

P.S.  I noticed that last Sunday’s bulletin said that the Care Home Services are on Friday.  The Care Home services were actually last night (Thursday), so my apologies if anyone was planning on attending & missed them, due to the mix-up in the bulletin.

Weekly News – February 2nd

I saw a most beautiful sunrise yesterday morning as I was driving to church.  The colours were slowly coming alive, almost like unwrapping an unexpected, yet heart-warming gift.  And it was beautiful.  Peaceful.  A very welcome gift to begin the day with.

These days I’m being challenged with something that I heard on the radio this week.  If I was to ask you to finish this sentence…”God is worthy to be ___________ .”, what would you say?  At first thought, I would say “praised” or “worshipped” or “loved”.  But the phrase that I heard this week was…”God is worthy to be TRUSTED.”  He is worthy to be trusted…with ALL of my trust.  Not just when things make sense to me, but even (or especially!) when they don’t.  Can I say with all of my heart, mind and soul, “God I trust you.” – in all things, with no other qualifiers or reasons, just a simple faith that says, “God I trust you.”  Because yes, I believe that He IS worthy of ALL my trust – each and every day that He gives me.

“Those who know your name trust you
because you have not abandoned
any who seek you, Lord.”

Psalm 9:10 (CEB)

It’s a quieter weekend here at Malmo – and I think most of us will gladly embrace that.  Join us on Sunday for Sunday School at 9:45am and for our Worship service at 11:00am.  We’ll be sharing together at the Lord’s table.  A beautiful gift from our Heavenly Father, as we begin this new month.

Peace to you my friends,

Weekly News – January 26th

There’s a few things going on this weekend that I would like to remind you of.

Tomorrow (Saturday) at 10:00am, we have Roy & Judy Louis, who will be leading us through the Blanket Exercise; an interactive learning experience that teaches the Indigenous history of Canada.  If you’d like more information on what the Blanket Exercise is, go to: .

And then on Saturday evening, there’s a Youth Skating & Games Party from 7:00 – 10:00pm at the New Sweden Recreation Centre. (The Recreation Centre is the building just east of the New Sweden Mission Church).  Please bring skates, hockey sticks, games and a snack to share and come on out for a great evening of fun with friends.

This past week, we received a letter from the Canada Conference Leadership Board.  After much prayer and discernment, they have nominated someone for the Conference Superintendent position.  If you’re interested in hearing more, please click here.  And please continue to be in prayer for this, as this important decision will be voted on at the Conference’s AGM in May.

Thanks for reading Folks.  Have a great weekend!
