Hello Church Family,

New City Catechism #4
How and why did God create us?
God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him. And it is right that we who were created by God should live to his glory.
Have you ever considered that our genders reflect the image of God?
Just as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are distinct persons yet share the same nature, so too do men and women share the same nature.
And how much more when we consider the marriage relationship where the man and the woman become one flesh!
There are differences, but there is unity. 
Consider the implications of these statements in the light of a very confused culture right now. 

Thanksgiving Sunday. This Sunday we will have our sharing service. Thank you for considering how you can give glory to God and bless one another by sharing what God has been doing in you and your family’s lives.

Operation Christmas ChildThank you Mercedes for volunteering to take care of this. I have ordered the boxes and they will be in soon.

Plan to Protect. Thanks for getting the training completed and a reminder for those who still need to do so.

Far East Broadcasting Dinner. Talk to Jim and Wilma if you are able to attend on Tuesday Oct. 22. They need to know by Oct. 20. 

Samaritan’s Purse are our missions focus this month. Please pray for them and the great work they do in the name of Jesus around the world.

Hello Church Family,

New City Catechism Question #3
   How many persons are there in God?
   There are three persons in the one true and living God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are the same in substance, equal in power and glory. One Divine Nature; Three Distinct Persons – This is the essence of the doctrine of the Trinity.  Here is a helpful picture:

Operation Christmas Child: We need a coordinator for the Shoeboxes this year. Would you like to help out with this? Please let me know. It is about 8 weeks until collection.

Isaiah Bible Study: Talk with Laurie if you’d like to be involved.

Crafty Saturday, Oct. 5 from 10-4 at the church.

Thanksgiving Sunday is soon approaching. It has been our tradition to have this be a church family sharing service, so I’m sowing the seed in your mind early!

Plan to Protect training – please continue to get that training complete.

If you are interested in attending the Far East Broadcasting Dinner on Tuesday Oct 22 in Red Deer please speak with Jim or Wilma.

Focus on Missions for October is Samaritan’s Purse.
