WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

Do you ever look at the Old Testament and wonder if the laws, that seem so burdensome,  are still relevant today? Join us as we walk through the 10 commandments, and come to realize the truth of 1 John 5:3 which says “for this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.” 

This will be a 10 week class beginning on Tuesday September 21. It will be offered at two different time slots, 9:30am for those women who can attend during the day,  or at 7pm for those women who are available in the evenings.   Led by Stephanie Klahsen.

FAMILY WORSHIP — FROM THE NEW CITY CATECHISM

Question 2:   What is God?

Answer:  God is the creator and sustainer of everyone and everything. He is eternal, infinite, and unchangeable in his power and perfection, goodness and glory, wisdom, justice, and truth. Nothing happens except through him and by his will.

Children's Answer:  God is the creator of everyone and everything.

Psalm 86:8–10, 15

There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,

nor are there any works like yours.

All the nations you have made shall come

and worship before you, O Lord,

and shall glorify your name.

For you are great and do wondrous things;

you alone are God. . . .

But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

 

WORSHIP THROUGH GIVING

Thank you so much for your faithful giving! 

When worshiping in person, you can place your offering on the plate at the back of the auditorium.

AFGHANISTAN REFUGEE CRISIS

The plight of minorities in Afghanistan has been tenuous for generations but, as the Taliban have been sweeping across the country capturing cities and provinces, their situation becomes more dire with each passing day. Many have gone into hiding; many have disappeared. Afghani Christians are at great risk and they fear for their lives. 

Please be in prayer for the people and country of Afghanistan

  • Pray for perseverance, courage, and strength for believers who will not be able to flee Afghanistan. Pray that they would stand firm in their faith in Christ, especially in the face of the reality that they may very well be martyred for their faith.
  • Pray that Afghans desiring to flee their country would be able to do so safely.
  • Pray that churches in Canada would be able to establish many sponsorship groups to welcome and care for Afghan refugees.
  • Pray for peace in Afghanistan.
