September 25, 2023 – This Week at McIvor

October 1 - You must be Born Again
Weekly Worship Service

Our next weekly service will be Sunday, October 1 at 10 a.m. Sherryl Koop will be speaking on Highlights from the Gospel of John: You Must Be Born Again, from John 3:1-21. Sunday School for kids K-grade 12 will follow the service.

Prayer Focus: Youth Group

Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12

Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.” – 2 Timothy 2:22

Please continue to pray for Doug who is still in the hospital. May God’s peace fill he and Carol and may He grant them the strength and courage they need.

Here is a note from Doug and Carol: We are thankful for the ongoing prayers and people’s practical ways of showing care and concern.

The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. Psalm 28:7

Current Sermon Series: Highlights from the Gospel of John

In the next six weeks we will look at some of the highlights of this gospel, some well known stories and see what they mean for us today. As we take a glimpse into the Gospel of John, may it inspire and bless you. We encourage you to read along during the week and in 6 weeks you’ll have read through the gospel! See the outline

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.

Kids Club Ministry – Do you love kids and building relationships with them?

A HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who have stepped up so far for our midweek kids program! We now have enough people to make this ministry happen! It would still be helpful to have a few more people, so if you’re still interested in being involved once or twice a month, please contact Monica or Pastor Kim

Ushers Needed – Are you available to serve one Sunday a month?

If you would like to be a part of this team that helps welcome people with a friendly smile and facilitate smooth worship services, contact Rodney.

Food Bank Team Looking for Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to help with the Food Bank on Wednesday afternoons from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. We hope to have enough volunteers (of all ages) to make teams of 3-4 people to receive and store food away once a month. There is a physical aspect to this task, but we have taken measures to mitigate it with the use of carts and trolleys. Please contact Rodney if you are interested.

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.
