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. If you are in favour of hosting or against hosting please talk to someone from the ministerial.

Tuesday, Septemeber 29th at 7pm – Place of Rescue at Church.
Place of Rescue is a home for orphans, the elderly, vulnerable women, as well as families living with AIDS in Cambodia. They will be sharing their stories, Cambodian traditional dance and information about the ministry. This tour will be bringing approximately 10 youth who live at Place of Rescue. They also travel with “Grandma Marie Ens” who is 80 and a lifetime missionary who plans to live and work in Cambodia for the rest of her life. Admission is free and a free will offering will be taken. Please talk to Stan and Tara if you are interested in billeting.
