Praying for our Future Building Needs

As you pray about the future building needs of Malmo, here are some places to start. These can help give us words and reminders to pray. Pray that God would clearly lead us in this decision. Pray that God stirs in each of us to participate and to do our part in the decision making process. Pray that we might have a holy indifference so that the direction God leads us in doesn’t matter so much to us. Only that He…

And…..We’re BACK!!!

This past Wednesday night was A-BUZZ with activity and energy as 47 youth and 8 leaders gathered in the Malmo church basement, for the Kick-off of the Wednesday Night Youth Program!  We have renamed our group, the ‘Malmo Community Youth Group’, because we truly do have kids from all over our community – rural and urban – coming to youth.  We had a fantastic evening of ‘celebratory food’ (pizza, chips, pop & ice cream), get-to-know-you games & garbage ball.  We…

Youth Kickoff

It’s hard to believe that it’s time for youth again, summer seemed to go by so quickly. But here we are and we’re excited for what this year will bring! This year will include all of those things our youth have come to love and expect: meals together, games and activities, and Bible study—friendship, fun, and faith—and we pray that we will grow closer to God in the process. Our goal is to learn to follow Jesus together in relationship…

Community Field Party

Thanks to everyone who joined us this past Saturday at our ‘Community Field Party’!  We had a great day of fun activities; face painting, bouncing in the castle, playing ‘nuke ’em’, watching a movie, hanging around the fire pit, visiting with neighbours, enjoying BBQ hamburgers…and so much more!  Thanks to our C.E. board for all their planning & organization for this day!  It was a great day! Here’s a few pictures from the day: [slickr-flickr tag=”field party” items=”31″] To see…

Welcome here

When I was first asked to think about moving to Malmo, one of the first things I did was to google it. Of course most of the hits I got were in Sweden and I knew I wasn’t called there. There were no Malmo Mission Covenant Church links or places even on Google maps to see where it was. Over these years we’ve had people working to create an online presence for our church and the broader community. For a…

Ecuador Adventure

Each year, Andy & Jenell Pluim lead a conference-wide missions trip to Ecuador.  Recently, our Canada Conference has formed a partnership with the Ecuadorian Covenant Church (IPEE) to support the Santiago Partnership Foundation.  This ministry serves communities that need medical clinics & homes for children at risk.  The team is going from February 24th to March 6th, 2015.  We are very excited to be able to be a part of this exciting work in Ecuador! Have you always wanted to…

Where does my help come from?

Good morning! How y’all doing today? I know it’s cloudy & life is busy…but it is still a day to “rejoice & be glad, because we’re not alone… “I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” – Psalm 121:1&2 This Sunday we’ll continue rejoicing together with a family, as they bring their sweet baby boy to the Lord in dedication. We’ll also…

Adventures in Leadership

Adventures in Leadership is a leadership program for high school kids going into grades 10-12, organized and led by our denomination. It involves Christian leadership training in a wilderness setting (partially at Covenant Bay Bible Camp, but mostly the rocky mountains west of there). It runs from August 5-12. Up to two young people from our church can go. Weston Vickery went last year and it was a great experience for him. If you have any questions about the Adventures…

Reading Mark with Marc – The Final Week: Chapter 16

We’re wrapping up our “Reading the Gospel of Mark with Marc”. The final chapter this week is Chapter 16. Here’s this weeks questions: In terms of the details of this event, what is significant about who came to Jesus’ tomb and who witnessed where he was buried (15:47)? Why were the women afraid to tell anyone about what they saw? We hope you’ve enjoyed reading through this gospel together with us. Give us your comments & feedback on what you…
