2007-06-24 Bulletin

We are God's Children—gathered by Him in love—to bring glory to the Triune God, to pray, to seek the lost, to nurture the young in the Lord, to care for the hurting, and to encourage one another. We do this in obedience to His Word.

Continue to remember our shut-ins: Ann Swier, Margaret Bos, Theresa Salomons, Tena Ellen and Jackie Hartenhof.

From the Deacons

With the approval of council, the deacons have decided to eliminate the budget offering in the evening service. Effective immediately, the evening offering will only be taken for the designated cause for that Sunday. If you have any questions about this decision, feel free to talk to one of the deacons.

Baby Bottles

If you forgot to bring your baby bottles last week, you can still return your bottle either to the Centre or to Vivian Peterson. Thanks so much for all your support.

July 1st Picnic

The picnic will begin on Sunday, July 1st, after the morning service and starts off with a barbecue potluck. There is a sign up sheet in the foyer to indicate your attendance and if you prefer to bring a salad or a dessert. We are also looking for people willing to bring their BBQ along, as well as people who want to help out with the games. The hamburgers and hot dogs should be ready by 1:00 p.m. Don’t forget to bring your cutlery, plates, lawn chairs, and of course, lots of sunscreen. Refreshments will be supplied. The barbecue potluck will be followed by various games for the various age groups. The afternoon closes off with a sing-a-long and time of worship. Invite your family and friends to join us at the East Campus of the Lacombe Christian School (corner of 52 Ave. & 57 St.) For questions or more information, please contact Irene and Scott Fraser @ 782-6788 or Cora and Ed Stol @ 885-5712.
