March 18, 2024 – This Week at McIvor

2024-03-24 Palm Sunday
Weekly Worship Service

On Sunday we will celebrate Palm Sunday at 10am. Pastor Mikayla will be speaking on Zechariah 9:9-10 and Matthew 21:1-11 Rejoice, Your King Is Coming To You. Sunday School for ages 4-14 will follow the service.

Prayer Focus: Called to Serve

“But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give His life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:26-28

McIvor Spring Break Day Camp – March 25-28 

There are only a few spots left for the Spring Break Day Camp! A huge thank you to everyone who has volunteered so far to help make this ministry possible. We have a few key roles that still need to be filled. Please consider if you might be able to help in the following ways:

  • Driving kids to and from the camp (families are located in the city centre area) on March 27 and 28 (pick up is at 7:45am from their home and pick up from church is at 4:15pm)
  • Helping with various activity stations and Minute to Win It games March 25 from 10:30am-2:30pm
  • Helping supervise the field trip to the Manitoba Museum March 28 from 10:30am-2:30pm
  • Donating baking of cookies or Rice Krispie squares (these can be dropped off at the table in the foyer every Sunday morning in March)

Contact Monica for more information.

Update from the HR Committee

At congregational meetings and church services in November and December, 2023, the Human Resources Committee and the Church Council announced that we were reorganizing the pastors’ job descriptions to better suit the strengths and skill sets of Kim, our current Interim Lead Pastor and Jon Klassen, our pastoral candidate. 

We have rewritten and renamed these job descriptions as the following: 

Copies of these job descriptions are available at the info desk, at the mailboxes, from the ushers and are posted in the Employment Opportunities section of the McIvor Church webpage.

Missions Committee Lent Project

McIvor Missions Committee invites you to take part in this year’s Lent Giving Project. We will once again be collecting hygiene items for One 88 Church. Here is a list of items that they regularly require in their drop-in program. Cash donations will be also gratefully accepted.

Easter Is Around The Corner!
Good Friday Service Keeping Vigil at the Cross – March 29, 10am

Join us for this imaginative retelling of the hours following Jesus’ crucifixion, written by Ingrid Koss. Those who loved and followed Him believe He was sent by God to save them. Now they gather at the cross to honour the man who impacted them so profoundly, and to hope – in spite of the devastating evidence – that there is still new life to come. Be inspired by their stories of transformation and their hope for the future!

Easter Sunday Service – March 31, 10am

We will celebrate the risen Jesus! Through the resurrection of Jesus, God conquered death and we live with the hope of eternity with Jesus. Our service will include a children’s feature and the flowering of the cross. This is a great opportunity to invite family and friends!

We will have some flowers on hand, we invite you to bring flowers for the flowering of the cross. Following the service, paska will be served in the gym. Please bring a paska to share that is iced, sliced and ready to serve.
