Weekend News

It looks like winter has finally arrived. Are you enjoying the snow? I know of a number of kids who had big smiles on their faces, as the snow was falling this week! 🙂

This Sunday, we are heading back to our roots in song…as we enjoy a morning of hymns and the stories behind the hymns. Pastor Randall will also be sharing a meditation with us, and of course we’ll still be having our prayer time and our after service coffee fellowship time. So bring a friend and come and join us at 11:00am for this Sunday’s ‘Hymn Sunday Worship Service’. (Sunday School at 9:45am).

Upcoming Weekend News

Morning Folks,

I was reading in 1 Thessalonians this week, and in chapter 5, there is a very short but important verse. In light of what my week has been holding, and for so many of you as well, this is a good reminder…

“Never stop praying.” ~1 Thessalonians 5:17

Here’s what’s happening this weekend:

On Saturday the youth are gathering at Matt & Jeramie-Lee’s for the Amazing Race and weiner roast, from 5:30 – 9:30 pm. Please bring a flashlight, roasting stick and dress appropriately for the weather.

Pastor Randall & Pastor Marc will be leading our worship service this Sunday. It’s also our Covenant Bay Bible Camp Giving Sunday. We’ll be hearing updates and news from Camp. If you’d like to financially support them, please make your cheques payable to ‘CBBC’. Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes are also due back this Sunday. So, please remember to bring them, and we’ll send them off with a prayer.

Then on Sunday evening, ‘The Family Project’ will continue at 6:30pm. Everyone is welcome to this (even if you missed the previous sessions). Child care is available.

That’s all for now. Enjoy your week.

November Weekend News

Good morning All!

The sun is shining but the brain is foggy. Ever have one of those days? I’m pretty thankful for good coffee this morning!! 🙂

So, what do we have happening this weekend? Our Lead Pastor is home! We’re happy to welcome Pastor Randall and Lauralea back to The Field! Pastor Randall will be back to leading our 11:00am Worship service and sharing a message from God’s word for us. Pastor Marc is leading the mornings music and Children’s lesson.

We are indeed fortunate to have such a great team of Pastors to minister to us and among us, here at Malmo! I know that I’m blessed by it! If you are too, can I encourage you to share words of appreciation to our Pastors? October was the ‘official’ month of Pastors Appreciation. We didn’t mention it, for a number of reasons. However, I think that ANYTIME is a good time to appreciate your Pastors for all they do! 🙂

That’s all for this weekend. Hope you’ll have a chance to get out & enjoy the nice weather, and we’ll see you on Sunday at 9:45am for Sunday School and 11:00am for Worship.

 

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10

Weekend News

Another lovely fall day out there! Hard to believe it’s the last week of October, with the weather like this! I sure am enjoying it! (Sorry Kyra – I know you’re ‘dying’ for the snow! 😉

There’s number of things going on this weekend! On Saturday evening from 4:30pm and on, Jay & Alli P. are having a little community drop-in party for any folks who are out & about on Halloween. All are welcome to stop by for a hot dog & hot chocolate, if you are in the area!

We have a great Sunday planned for you! It starts off with Sunday School at 9:45am, and then into our Worship service at 11:00am. We’ll be sharing together in music, prayer and Holy Communion, and Pastor Marc will be sharing a few thoughts from God’s word for us.

Then after the service, we get to eat together! 🙂 Yup! That’s right – it’s time for another potluck – so please bring enough food for your family, and some extra to share. You may be asking yourself ‘Why are we having a potluck?’ Well, two reasons. ONE, because you’re all great cooks and it’s been forever since we’ve eaten each others food! And TWO, because we will be having a special missions presentation, after we eat lunch. We’ll have missionaries with us who will be sharing about their work and experiences. The community has also been invited to come and join us for this event, so please keep that in mind, as you bring your food. Groups 2 AND 3 are on for set up & clean up for this event. (If you’re unsure which group you’re in, please click here.)

Then at 6:30pm, the next session of The Family Project will be presented here at Malmo. The topic this week is, ‘What are our basic human needs?’. Everyone is welcome to participate in this discussion & event. Child care is available.

AND another bonus of this weekend? An extra hour of sleep!! It’s time change weekend, so remember to turn your clocks BACK one hour on Saturday night.

I think that covers it all for this weekend. I’m looking forward to it! Hope to see you all here!

Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes

Christmas is right around the corner – and that means as a church, we’ll be participating again in “Operation Christmas Child”.  This is a program, operated by ‘Samaritan’s Purse’, that sends shoeboxes filled with hygiene items, toys, books, etc., to hurting children in countries around the world.

Why should we get involved in this ministry? “Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on project of Samaritan’s Purse that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas – Jesus Christ – God’s greatest gift.” – Samaritans Purse.  That’s the best reason of all.

If you’d like more information about the ‘Operation Christmas Child’ program, or about Samaritans Purse, please click here.

Please bring your filled boxes back to church on November 15th.  We’ll be gathering them & sending them off with our prayers.
