Weekly News-March 29

The journey through Lent brings us here – Maundy Thursday – the night of Jesus’ last supper.  A meal that he would share with his beloved disciples, all the while knowing that one of them would betray him, and others would abandon & deny him.  Yet He still served them – washing their feet and serving the meal.  He still loved them, and he submitted to being tortured & suffering a horrendous death for them, even though they didn’t yet understand all that he was doing.  What incredible love.  Betrayed, yet he loved.  Rejected, yet he loved.  Misunderstood, yet he loved.  He didn’t just do this for his disciples.  He did this for me.  He did this for you.  Let this truth sink into the very depths of your soul, as we continue to walk together through this Holy Week.

Come join us tonight, Maundy Thursday, at 7:00pm as we share together around the Lord’s table, with scripture, song and reflection.

On Friday, the journey continues to the cross at 10:00am at New Sweden Mission Church.  We’ll be gathering there with our neighbours as we remember that dark day and all that Jesus willingly went through for us.

Praise God that we don’t have to stay on Good Friday…because Sunday’s a-comin!  On Sunday morning at 11:00am, we will celebrate with Christians all over the world, Jesus’ resurrection and LIFE and the HOPE that it brings for us all.

Can you feel the passion?  And the sorrow?  And the love? All wrapped in the overarching HOPE of this week?  I pray that we all can.  Looking forward to sharing this week with you.

P.S.  We also wanted to mention again the details of Rod’s funeral for you. The Interment service will be held at Malmo on Saturday at 10 am.  The funeral will be held at Calvary Baptist Church in Wetaskiwin on Saturday at 2 pm.

Weekly News-March 23

This Sunday is Palm Sunday.  We’ll be beginning the worship service with children waving palms and our voices singing Hosanna, as we imagine what that day might have been like, as Jesus made his grand entry into Jerusalem.  (If your child would like to take part in waving the palms, please have them meet in the foyer right before the service begins.)  After the ‘palms processional’, our worship service will continue with songs, scripture, prayer, teaching and fellowship.

We hope that you and your family can join us for this special Palm Sunday service.  (Sunday School begins at 9:45am for all ages.)

Have a great weekend!

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!

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.
