The Meaning of Marriage:

Today we bring our offerings for Rehoboth Christian Ministries. Rehoboth supports individuals with disabilities and their families through effective, Christian based programs & services. It is an advocate for and supports the needs, rights, and abilities of people who live with disabilities. Rehoboth supports programs in Lethbridge, Grande Prairie, Stony Plain, Calgary, Three Hills and across Alberta. It also runs the Rehoboth Gull Lake Camp for persons with disabilities.

Next week our church will take an offering for Fuente De Vida Church in Ensenada, Mexico. We as a church continue to support Pastors Jes’us & Evelia from the Fuente de Vida church in Ensenada, Mexico. We have sent many mission teams there to help build the church and homes in the colonia nearby. Please continue to support them in prayer as well.


Next Sunday, December 4th

We continue our Advent series on the Carols of Christmas. We read from Micah 5:1-5 and the carol is “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” Pastor Mike will lead our service.

In the evening on December 4th

We will have our “Blue Christmas” service at 7:00 p.m. Christmas can be a painful time. It might be the first Christmas without a loved family member. People may be facing life after divorce or separation. Perhaps you are coping with the loss of a job. The constant expectation of happiness actually hurts for many people in our congregations and communities. Many people feel blue at Christmas. This is why we hold a “Blue Christmas” service. Come and join us as we call on God to help bear our burdens and bring light into our darkness. Take an invitation and invite a friend or neighbor who needs encouragement.
