Highlights from 1, 2 and 3 John
Weekly Worship Service

Our next weekly service will be Sunday, October 29 at 10 a.m. when we will be welcoming new members to the McIvor family! Following the service, children ages 4-14 are invited to join us for Sunday School. 

Prayer Focus: Fresh Revelation of the Father’s Love

“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11

The first Young Adult Worship Night: Encountering God will take place on Friday night. May many – those attending and volunteers alike – encounter the living and life-transforming Jesus through their worship!

Family News

I would like to take this time to acknowledge that many people in this church have been ever so supportive over this past while. There have been thoughtful words and acts of kindness and food delivery during this past couple of weeks that have been very appreciated and brought smiles to our faces. There has also been “we’re praying for you”, words that have meant a lot!  It’s all helped to navigate a difficult time and is lovingly remembered. Thank you!

Free Festive Family Fun Day – November 26

On November 26 we will be hosting a Free Festive Family Fun Day! This event is a community event and open to everyone, so please invite family and friends. There will be a free lunch, coffeehouse, bouncer, crafts, preschool play area and more! If you’re interested in volunteering with this event, please contact Monica.

MCC Buckets of Thanks

The McIvor Missions Committee is once again participating in the MCC Buckets of Thanks as our project. Please consult the website for items to be included in the relief bucket or see the display in the foyer. We are asking congregants to bring items off of the lists at the table. You do not need to fill a bucket on your own. We will then distribute the collected items between the buckets and use the funds that come in to buy the items that are still required. Thank you!

Donations of Fall and Winter Clothing

Anna Kakozi and the Missions Committee are hoping to assist several families who have recently arrived from the Democratic Republic of Congo by collecting fall and winter clothing for adults and children. Donations may be dropped off at the office. Contact Colleen for details.

Are You Passionate About Ministering to Young Adults?

If so, we are looking for people to serve as prayer warriors, worship leaders, ushers, baristas, speakers, etc. to be a part of a monthly Young Adult Worship and Prayer Ministry evening. Please contact Elwood or Pastor Mikayla.
