2017‎ > ‎October 8 Bulletin‎ > ‎



Our offering today is for the En-Gedi Children’s Home - Margaret Njuguna. Margaret has dedicated her life to En-Gedi Children’s Home in Kenya. There, the love of God is shared with the many children who love each other, play together, sing and dance as they have been able to do so. They are created in God’s image. They are not disabled. They are abled differently! Items can be brought for the Lacombe Community Food Bank today and tomorrow. If you have not participated in the Reverse Offering for the Food Bank, please take a slip or more from the basket on the table in the foyer and bring the items to the Thanksgiving service tomorrow.

Next Sunday, October 15th we will takean offering for Ministry Support for Mark, Selina and Levi Patterson. Continue to pray for the family as they work in China.

Tomorrow, October 9th is Thanksgiving and the GEMS are hosting a Pancake Breakfast fund raiser from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. in the church fellowship hall. After the breakfast, we will join together for a special Thanksgiving Worship service at 10:30 a.m. here in the church.


The Deacons have compiled a list of worthy causes for your Thanksgiving gifts to be collected tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day. We ask that you each prayerfully consider which cause you wish to donate to. We realize that the list of worthy causes can go on and on so we have listed just a few for you. If God has laid on your heart to donate to a cause not listed we strongly encourage you to give to that cause.

Prayer gathering and Potluck:

There will be a prayer service on Sunday October 22nd, in the evening. Prior to that, we will have a potluck meal at 6 p.m. in the fellowship hall. Everyone is invited! The core prayer group will meet on October 17th, location to be announced.

Food for Thought:

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always." Psalm 105:4. To enhance our prayers we need to focus on God's face, see His love for us and see His confidence in whatever situation we are in. By keeping our focus on God's face the things of this world will grow strangely dim.

Next Sunday, October 15th

We will join together in praise and worship at 10:30 a.m. All are welcome!
