THIS SUNDAY - Join us at 9:15 and 11am for Sunday Worship as Pastor Daniel brings the third message in our sermon based small group series ABRAHAM: FAITH TO FOLLOW with Part 3: Your True Fulfillment. We will look at how we can have faith to follow and hold to God’s promises even when things seem uncertain. There’s still time to get plugged into a small group if you’re not already in one. Simply contact Pastor Daniel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
SMALL GROUPS ALSO MEET AT THE CHURCH Sundays during second service (In Café Library Room B6), Wednesday nights (External Building) from 6:45-8:00pm and on Thursday nights at 7:30pm in the Board Room (C6).
Sign up this Sunday at the Connections Centre to get plugged in to a SMALL GROUP. This Sunday is also Sanctity of Life Sunday. We celebrate God’s gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit to protecting and supporting human life at every stage.
