MAY MINISTRY MEETING - Plan to attend our May Ministry Meeting where we take some time to review and celebrate the successes of the previous ministry year. The meeting will be held Monday night -  May 29th at 7:00pm. See you there!

1st SATURDAY MEN’S FELLOWSHIP - Our monthly men’s fellowship event will be held June 3 at 8am. Our special speaker will be Kevin Orde, who will address the 5-W's (who, what, where, when, why) and how of his "Faith" walk in Christ.  We will gather in the Youth Centre.  Following his message, we will meet, greet, and eat at the Lion’s Club Breakfast next door at the Louis Millett Complex.

We will be meeting Monday, June 5, 7-8:30pm at the church.  Come join us for an evening of Praise, Worship, Prayer and Fellowship.  We will be sharing stories of the good ways God is at work in our lives.

“AFTER ALPHA” THE JESUS LIFESTYLE - Join us Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm beginning June 6th for an engaging Nicky Gumbel video study that takes a closer look at the Sermon on the Mount and presents the life that Jesus wants us to live. How to deal with anger. How to handle money. What to do when faced with difficult people. Simple, memorable and profound. Jesus’ words in the Sermon on the Mount are as relevant and as challenging today as they were 2,000 years ago. For more info please contact Pamela Flawn (pamelaflawn@gmail.com or 902-538-8338)
