Upcoming

Wednesday Aug 22, 7:30 PM

–  Morweena Fall Send-Off- @ Church

We want to acknowledge those who are leaving the community to attend school, a mission organization; or just embarking on a new adventure. We want to have an evening, where we recognize new beginnings together. It will be an informal coffee-house style evening of sharing and prayer. If you want to donate some specialty coffee or cookies to the cause, it would be greatly appreciated.

 

The second annual Morweena Father and Son retreat, Man-Up2 will be held Sept. 21-23. If you are interested in helping Donny plan this weekend, please get a hold of him.

 

Eric will be on holidays Aug 20-26

 

Remember in Your Prayers:

Hodgson Christian Academy and Morweena Christian School and their staff needs.

 

Congratulations to Jason & Carla Elias on the birth of their daughter, Mia Kaylin, born on August 5, 2012

 

In the church library:

New fiction Chasing Mona Lisa by Tricia Goyer & Mike Yorkey. With nonstop action and intrigue, “Chasing Mona Lisa” is sure to get your adrenaline pumping as you join the chase to save the most famous painting in the world. From war-ravaged 1944 Paris to a posh Swiss chateau, the race is on–and the runners are playing for keeps.

 

Youth Pastor Update:

The coming youth year is drawing closer. This summer has been really great; I have loved the opportunity to dream, read, pray, and plan ahead. One of the things that I want to make you aware of is an upcoming series of adult Sunday School classes on passing on a ‘Sticky Faith’ (www.stickyfaith.org). It is a 5-part study that will start in September. We will also be doing this series with the youth, providing a great opportunity to open up conversations on certain topics. I read the book this summer and felt challenged and encouraged, and I hope you will be as well.

The second thing is that I would love to send out youth schedules, newsletters, updates to parents more often, so I have created themorweenayouth@gmail.com for this reason. If you would like to receive youth calendars, updates, and general info; or have questions or suggestions, please email this address, and I will add you to the list of recipients.

Our fall Youth Kick-Off is September 11. If you have youth entering Gr. 7 they are welcome to start attending youth. If you want to talk in person, you can usually find me in my office on Tuesday’s.

Thank you for praying for the youth; we are excited about what God is going to do this year!
