December 25 Bulletin


Please remember our church family in your daily prayers, at mealtimes and during your personal devotions. Continue to remember those young and old with ongoing physical, spiritual, and emotional struggles.

Tilly Biel was admitted to the Lacombe hospital with shingles and with difficulty breathing. She is being monitored closely. We pray for God’s healing grace in her life.

Do remember those who are unable to worship regularly with us: please keep Jenny Bajema, Tilly Biel, Klaas Boskers, Lea Dykstra, Ernie Stebner and Grace Vander Veen in your prayers.

Pray for our missionaries around the world.

Note from Pastor Mike:

At this time the Grace CRC in Welland, Ontario has called me to be their pastor. They have asked that I prayerfully consider their call and give them a response in the New Year. At this time I would appreciate your prayers as I consider this call and I would ask you to share with me what the Holy Spirit speaks into your heart as you pray about these things. We trust in the Lord’s guidance as we go forward in faith.

THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our Christmas at Sea project this year. Your response was very encouraging and will result (and has already resulted) in many mariners being pointed to the reason for our celebration, the birth of Jesus Christ, the Saviour! On behalf of the Ministry to Seafarers and everyone who will receive one of the gifts you helped provide, “Thank You”. May you experience God’s rich blessing as you celebrate our Saviour’s birth. From Ernst Devries, Chaplain.


From Voice of the Martyrs - Canada: 

Thank you for your faithfulness in prayer and ministry on behalf of our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. As we all reflect on that very first Christmas, may our hearts well up with praise, adoration and gratitude to God for sending His greatest Gift to a lost and broken humanity – the Promised Messiah who is Christ the Lord! During this Christmas season, may we be mindful of our Lord's abiding love and presence with us, His desire to minister to the needs of His suffering people, and His heart of mercy towards those who are spiritually lost and perishing. May every person on the face of this earth have the opportunity to hear the "Good News" of our Lord Jesus and respond to His unfathomable love!
