Vision

Trying to discover the right plans and initiatives to implement in the middle of a pandemic is super confusing and difficult. It is sometimes easiest to just say we will hide and wait for it to all be over. And maybe that is the right decision to do with some things, but the reality that we still have people to reach in our community isn't something that will just wait for the pandemic to be over. No, it's probably not wise to invest in some revolutionary new ministry right now, but we can continue to do what we have been doing and continue inviting our friends and family to experience the good news about Jesus. Physical distancing and having to register for Sunday mornings is a real pain, but that can't stop us from reaching out and inviting others in.
Yes, some things have been put on hold, but many other things need to keep moving forward. Let's continue to invite and influence those around us.

Wins

1. We keep getting thank you notes from people who have received the grief booklets we mail out. They continue to make a significant impact on many lives.
2. We were able to use a special donation to make a big impact on a local meal program, all thanks to our Xmas-Wrap Up Around the Block Initiative.
3. We are seeing more young men show interest in the Young Adults Small Group!

Last Sunday's Message 



When we look at the story of the Israelites on their way to the promised land we see that the generation that finally took possession of the land had to live an extra 40 years in the wilderness because of the decisions of their parents. Then before they were allowed to enter the land, God gave them commands to help them avoid the mistakes of their parents.

What We Learned:
Deut 6:1-2 & 20-25
It is our job to set up the next generation to learn from the past and do better than us.

Reminder Phrase:
Set Up

Celebrate Recovery 
The God of the Bible, The Father, Son & Holy Spirit are THE higher power – the only one that can be in control.
Only 1/3 of people who attend Celebrate Recovery (CR) do so because of a chemical addiction, the rest are hurts and hang ups. Hurts: abuse, emotional, physical and sexual. Hang-ups: bitterness, anger, trust, do not measure up Habits: behaviours and addictions
You don’t need to hit rock bottom before starting recovery. The 8 principles are based on the beatitudes and the 12 steps flow out of the principles. Join us Tuesday nights, the doors open at 6:15 pm (starts at 6:30). Masks are required and physical distancing will be observed. You can register HERE or call the church at 902 667 9126.
