We’re just talking here in the office that we are in the final week of April already! April sure seems to have flown by!! We’re looking forward to May and the promise of more Spring in all it’s beauty! 🙂
With Spring officially here and with the rain that has fallen, the grass around the church is beautifully green! It’s also ‘beautifully growing’! (I bet you know what I’m going to ask next…) It’s that time of year again, when we are looking for volunteers to mow and care for our church grounds. Are you and your mower able to help us out? Take a look at your calendar and see if you can volunteer for a couple of weeks this summer. The sign up schedule will be posted on the bulletin board in the foyer on Sunday. Thanks so much for considering this and helping us out!
The Canada Conference AGM in Breton is 2 weeks away, and the conference has just published their 112th Annual Report. If you would like to read about what’s going on in our churches, affiliated ministries and global engagements, click here. And remember, that anyone can attend the AGM in Breton. For more information on the meeting and how to register, go to: http://www.covchurch.ca/annual-general-meeting
This Sunday during our 11:00am worship service, we will be sharing in Holy Communion together. Can you take a few minutes this weekend and ready your heart for meeting with God at the table? Pastor Randall wrote a prayer a couple of years ago that is really helpful in preparing our hearts and minds for the table. Click here if you’d like to read it.
Enjoy the sun today & hang on to your hat! 🙂
Good morning All,
Good morning Folks,
Did you know that Easter is not done yet? In the church calendar, Maundy Thursday begins the Easter Season, and it carries on right up to Pentecost, 50 days after Easter Sunday. So we are continuing in this ‘Season of New Life’. As Pastor Randall shared last Sunday, God is doing something new amongst us – do we see it? I love this verse in Isaiah 43:19:
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
As we shared with you earlier this week, Adele Peterson has gone home to be with her Heavenly Father. Her funeral service will be on Tuesday, April 5th at 2:00pm. Please be in prayer for the family during this time.
We’ve also been made aware of a need for food in our community. Can you help by bringing non-perishable goods to church on Sunday? Items that are most useful are: sugar, salt, lard, oatmeal, rice, canned meats, canned fish, kraft dinner, soup, spaghetti and pasta sauce. The food can be place in the Food Pantry bin, in the church foyer. Thanks!
This Sunday we’ll be gathering at 9:45am for Sunday School, 11:00am for the Worship service. And for those involved with The Family Project – that’s also happening on Sunday at 6:30pm.
Thanks all. Enjoy this beautiful weather and your weekend too. See you Sunday.
A frosty good morning to you all!
