Our offering today is for Lacombe Community Refugee Effort in support for the Al Omar family.

Next Sunday we will take an offering for support for Albert & Caroline Strydhorst. Albert is doing ministry with the Timothy Leadership Training Institute in Grand Rapids. This continues to be rewarding work. People in more than 30 countries were trained using TLT materials. For a great many of them TLT is their only formal ministry training as seminary or Bible school is not available them. Please continue to keep Albert & Carolyn and their family in your prayers. They are very thankful for our ongoing spiritual and financial support.

From World Renew: We are grateful for your donations of $3,868.50 for World Renew programs received from April to June 2017.

Every day, World Renew witnesses God’s power at work among people who live in adversity, as their stories are rewritten with the hope and courage that only He can give.

Food for Thought:

"Let your cares drive you to God. I shall not mind if you have many of them if each one leads you

to prayer. If every fret makes you lean more on the Beloved, it will be a benefit."

Charles Spurgeon
