It’s that time of year again – yes, I am talking about
Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes
Shoebox pickup this year is scheduled for the third week in November so there is still plenty of time to grab your materials at the church then go shopping. Once you have your shoebox assembled and packed – simply follow directions in the pamphlet to include your donation for however many boxes you wish to send and bring the boxes back to the church. It is that easy to bless a child (or children) in other parts of the world. Your donation could change a child’s life this Christmas!
Recently we had an event called
Gospel Music Jam & Sing-a-long
Sunday, August 26 at 3 PM
(to which our community was invited)
At the home of
Dave & Sharon Gosselin
Here is a little look at some of the things
that happened at the event:
We are a church that is a strong supporter of missions both domestic and foreign. Several times a year we have individuals and teams going out to do ministry elsewhere. This might mean here in the North helping our church plants in Swastika and Thunder Bay. It might mean supporting others to minister to First Nations peoples up the James Bay Coast or helping the New Men’s Shelter in North Bay.
We have sent young people literally around the world to share in a number of ways. Over the last 10 or 15 years we have been involved extensively in Mexico, and in the Dominican Republic in building projects and other kinds of ministry. We have also sent teams to Ukrainer and Guatemala.
Movie Screenings For The Community
Once a month (on the first Sunday of the month) at 7:00 p.m. we screen a FREE movie for anyone who wishes to attend. You don’t have to go to church here to come join us for an uplifting and thought-provoking movie. All are welcome from the community. If the subject matter is of a more serious nature advisory will be given well in advance if the movie is not for young children. Here are our posters for some of the movies we have screened.
Operation Christmas Child
Our church participates in Operation Christmas Child run by Samaritan’s Purse. We are a collection point for shoe boxes that will travel around the world to bless children that often will not have received a Christmas gift ever before in their life. Each recipient is presented with not only their shoe box but a chance to learn about the life and love of Jesus.
These boxes have been collected and prayed over…you still have time to get yours in. Collection week is November 13 -19th 2017. Our shoeboxes are heading to the main collection point for the area tomorrow morning (November 15) so it will be up to you to get yours there too by the 19th if they are not in this pile.
