Happy Canada Day! Our office will be closed tomorrow for the holiday.

Thanks to everyone who has volunteered their yard for a Sunday evening bonfire this summer! Our schedule has been filled!

Our first summer bonfire will be at Hidden Valley Christian Camp in Paisley on Sunday, July 8. Bill Kranenburg has invited everyone to come out at 4:00 p.m. to swim and tube in the river and use a slip & slide. He will provide a BBQ supper. Campfire to follow at 6:30. Donations will be collected which will go towards the Bragg’s ministry.

Prayer Night Please join us on Sunday, July 15 at 6:30 for an evening of prayer.

Summer Slam brings kids together for a whole week to learn, grow, and play. Mark the mornings of August 13-17 on your calendar and plan to sign up your children/grandchildren/neighbours (ages 5-12). Grab a form outside the admin centre or fill it out online. Check out the Summer Slam Table in the foyer.

You’re invited to a BBQ lunch following the service on Sunday, July 29. Hamburgers, hotdogs, and drinks will be provided. Please bring along a salad or dessert to share. We are looking for some volunteers and organizers for this event. Please talk to Pastor Dave or to the office if you’re willing and available.


Please continue to pray for those members of our congregation who are facing various health concerns. Pray for the doctors that are overseeing their care, and the family members that are offering support during this time.


The U18 Ministry needs your help on Sunday mornings in the summer! Consider grabbing a partner and signing up to teach one Sunday on a fruit of the spirit. Pick a date, choose a ‘fruit’, and sign up at the reception desk. If we don’t get volunteers we will not be able to offer a summer Sunday morning program.
