August 27, 2023 - The Hard Sayings of Jesus - Taking Up the Cross
Weekly Summer Service

Kids Club Ministry – Do you love kids?

We need Omas (Grandmas), Opas (Grandpas), Aunties, Uncles and people who love building relationships with kids. Our youth group is thriving and some younger ones have been coming out and wanting to join. There is a growing need for an elementary aged (grade 2-5) Kids Club Ministry. There are people interest in starting this, but we need more help. The roles will vary, but most do not require preparation, or a weekly commitment! We will start small and grow as the kids come. If you are interest in helping out, or would like more information about Kids Club Ministry, please contact Monica or Pastor Kim.

Update from Council

As per our constitution, we need to vote to affirm them joining Council. We will proceed with a congressional vote to confirm and affirm them right after the service on September 10, 2023.

We are down two members for Church Council this fall. Through prayerful discernment and the work of the Discernment Team, we have two candidates to fill these vacancies: Karin Friesen and Natasha Geddert!

Please attend and participate in the vote to join in this important work.
