URGENT need of SS teachers for grades 3-5 and grades 6-7. Please contact: Gloria Penner or Ronelda Loewen.

As a church, we broadcast our services via LiveStream. We are in need of some volunteers to help videotape our service and someone to organize a schedule and maintain it. We know that the service gets used regularly so we know its importance. However some slots remain open, which could result in those Sunday services not being aired. If you are interested please talk to Donny.

Seniors’ Meal
There is a seniors’ meal sign up sheet in the foyer. Please check the dates to see if there are dates that work for you! Thanks.

Remember in your prayers:
Our Music Leaders.

Upcoming Events

The EM Conference has asked the four Interlake churches if we would like to host the annual convention in the summer of 2017. This would require many volunteers from our churches to help with childcare, making worship services happen, making snacks, and the many other tasks that good hosts do. Be prepared next Sunday to show by a raise of hands whether you are in favour of our region hosting this event.

Pick up EMC’s periodical Theodidaktos on the table in the lobby. This issue has a few interesting articles about war and pacifism. When you’re done with it pass it on to someone else.

Check Out in the Library
Truth Matters by Andreas Kostenberger. Stats say that 4 out of 10 kids leave the church and never return because they are unarmed and incapable of defending their faith. This easy to read book provides well-reasoned answers to the toughest objections, this resource equips young adults to confidently respond to opposing arguments, lectures, exam questions, and their own personal doubts about faith.
