Today, May 19th and May 26th, we have church wide potlucks. Everyone (even those not in care groups) are in a potluck group. If you can’t be at you’re scheduled Sunday, feel free to go another Sunday.

Today after the service there will be one last opportunity to get a picture taken for the church directory. Thank-you to all of you who have responded and given us your updated information – we hope to get the new pages printed very shortly!

Looking for the opportunity to make a difference this summer? Need to make money to go back to school but still want to experience the adventure of a lifetime? Gem Lake Wilderness Camp, a ministry of Inner City Youth Alive, is looking for committed, passionate Christian leaders to work as counsellors and lifeguards this summer. Openings for July-Aug. are available. Contact Gord at gord@icya.ca or call 582-8779 ext. 212 for more details.

 

Remember in your prayers: Camp Arnes. Let’s pray that staffing needs will be met and that God will be working in the hearts of those that will be staff.

 

Check out in the library this week…

Post-Christendom: Church Mission in a Strange New World by Stuart Murray.This book is an introduction; a journey into the past, an interpretation of the present and an invitation to ask what following Jesus might mean in the strange new world of post-Christendom. Drawing on insights from the early Christians, dissident movements and the world church, this book challenges conventional ways of thinking.

Update on Abundant Springs:

Abundant Springs is less than 2 weeks away. Right now we have about 20 youth and leaders registered. We are looking for transportation down there. If you have a vehicle we can use, we would greatly appreciate that. We leave Friday morning and return Monday night. It is still not to late to sign up, although the price has gone up!
