Today we bring our offerings for mission support for Albert & Caroline Strydhorst. Albert is currently working with the Timothy Leadership Training Institute (TLT) through CRW Missions and Calvin Seminary. In the past year TLT has trained more than 2500 people who do not have access to Bible school or seminary in over 30 countries. The Strydhorsts rely on ongoing support from churches such as ours as they carry on this training work based in Grand Rapids.

Next week our church will take an offering for Youth Unlimited. “Youth Unlimited helps churches challenge youth to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and transform this world for him.” Youth Unlimited is a non-denominational, non-profit ministry organization with the focus of assisting the Church and its many local congregations with their ministry to our youth. Youth Unlimited is one of three ministries incorporated in an organization called Dynamic Youth Ministries. GEMS Girls’ Club is a ministry for young girls and Cadets is the companion ministry for boys. Youth Unlimited is the co-ed ministry for high school youth. (Please note that this organization is NOT affiliated with Youth Unlimited/Youth for Christ here in Lacombe or North America.)
