Please check the Worship Service page for our virtual worship services during COVID-19. A video sermon and other service information will be posted to the page around 10 am on Sunday morning.
Scripture Text: Galations 1:1-6 Sermon Title: Rescued by Christ
OUR CHURCH FAMILY Prayer Requests: - For Teresa W, and Adrianna B. - For Brian, John H., Alida , Paul R. and Chris R. as they serve as our elders; for Jake, Rob, Robert, and Greg as they serve as our deacons. - for Bill E as he recovers from knee surgery - for Pastor Paul & Juliana as they discern God's call - Guatemala Monthly Prayer: Pray for our partners since during this time the work has been affected due to the restrictions that we've had in Guatemala. Upcoming Special Collections: Although we are unable to meet together for regular Sunday worship gatherings, there is still opportunity to share of our gifts, talents and resources. First, be creative in thinking of the ways that you can be a blessing to those nearby to you (offering to buy or pick up groceries, offering child care for those who need to work, offering to cook a meal, etc.) Second, for our church members (we do not expect our guests to contribute financially) there are ways to continue to support our church and the other ministries/agencies that we would normally support on Sunday mornings. Our church is set up to receive e-transfers; they may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add in your note where the donations are to be directed (i.e. Church Budget, World Renew, etc.) If you are not set up for e-transfer or do not feel comfortable with it, then cheques may be mailed to the church at 50 Fifth Ave. Vanastra, ON N0M 1L0. Please consider giving as if we were gathering together regularly on those Sundays. Upcoming Collections Jan 10-31: Church Ministries Counselling: During COVID19 restrictions the CAP counselling ministry through Shalem Mental Health Network continues to make anonymous professional counselling support available to congregants of our church at no charge. All services are provided through a secured video or telephone connection. To book a CAP appointment, call Shalem directly at 1-866-347-0041. And for more resource information check their website at https://shalemnetwork.org/.
OUR CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY Thank you letter sent from Resonate: Dear Congregation, Thank you for these generous gifts given to Resonate Global Mission during the month of December 2020: Thank you for your generosity—you are helping people live and share the gospel of Jesus Christ in their communities! You are part of God’s story of transforming lives through your partnership with Resonate. Your gifts provide encouragement and support for ministry leaders, and the resources they need to grow and flourish! Investing in God’s global church includes investing both here at home and around the world. We’re grateful that you are helping more people find hope and new life in Christ! Your gift will continue to grow in impact alongside the missionaries, church planters, and other ministry leaders you support. The unique advantage of your giving through Resonate is that our ministry leaders share what they learn with each other. That network of support—which you’re a part of—helps strengthen ministry across North America and around the world. We work better when we work together! Thank you for being a part of this long-term vision for proclaiming the gospel. Thank you for helping grow and strengthen the church, and for sharing our Christian hope! In Christ, Kevin DeRaaf, Acting Canada Director Huron Hospice is offering an 8 week Grief Support and Recovery course online. Please contact the church for details.
