Our Children’s Christmas Musical this year was
“The First Leon”
and happened on
Saturday December 14th
here at the Church. The First Leon was performed by the students of Issachar Christian Academy from North Bay.
Musical began at 5 PM and Christmas Dinner catered by the Zehr family and Amish community followed at 6 PM.
We had approximately 230 people turn out for this event and it was a resounding success. The Musical ended to a standing ovation – with a great performance by all students. Thanks goes to the teachers and all involved behind the scenes as well.

We held a Film Night on
Sunday December 1st at 7 PM
here at the Church.
The film we screened was titled
“Though None Go With Me”
, it stars Cheryl Ladd and is Dove rated as 12+
Synopsis: Based on the book by best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins (Left Behind series, Hometown Legend), Though None Go With Me is the heartwarming and inspirational story of Elizabeth Leroy Bishop (Cheryl Ladd, “Las Vegas,” “Charlie’s Angels”), a remarkable woman whose faith is tested with each tragedy endured on an extraordinary life journey.
We hope to see you here to enjoy this excellent movie. Admission is FREE as always. We have comfortable padded pews and have hearing assistance available for those that need a little help to enjoy the experience.
We held an outreach event in and for our community at 250 Clark on Saturday, September 21st, 2019 which saw an amazing attendance. The Amish Community assisted us by making an amazing breakfast (as always, thank you to the Zehr family) followed by our speaker, published author and expert on children and teens, Barbara Coloroso. There was childcare provided by EarlyOn during the speech and everyone had a great time. Thank you to one and all who helped make this event a HUGE success!

Our Alpha Film Series Began
Sunday, March 3rd, 2019
at 5:30 P.M. (now concluded)
For all our searching – it’s rare to find time to think, and talk, about the big questions of life; about faith and reason and God
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of the Christian faith. Typically run over 8-12 weeks, it allows anyone to explore life, faith and God in a friendly, open and informal environment. In each session, there’s food, a short talk, and discussion in small groups.
Alpha is for everyone – welcoming people from all backgrounds, religions and viewpoints.
Have a look at the short videos above to get a feel for what this series is all about.

It’s that time of year again – yes, I am talking about
Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes

Thank you and God Bless!
If you still have shoeboxes to get to the collection point you still have until this Sunday (November 11th) to get them here to go with these boxes… failing that you can find a drop-off location near you by visiting this link, below, (which opens in a new window)
Or by calling Samaritan’s Purse at 1-800-303-1269
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.
