Reformation Sunday: 

It’s been 500 years since Martin Luther published his 95 theses and started something new in the church. Through all those centuries, we share something important in common with our brothers and sisters from the year 1517: our identity in Christ. And Christ gave each one of us a calling, so that his church may be built up. Together as a denomination we remember God’s faithfulness to the church over the centuries. Pastor Sergei Sosedkin will share with us today how God is working through Back to God Ministries International, changing lives and using media to share the Gospel, disciple believers, and to strengthen the church. Our offering today will be for Back to God Ministries International.

Next Sunday, November 5th 

we will takean offering for World Renew – World Hunger. Families in many parts of the world are working hard to break barriers that have kept them in a cycle of poverty and hunger. With your contributions you are helping these families learn ways to improve their lives and write a new story that is filled with hope and promise. This week, please continue to read about God’s work breaking barriers in the Bible and today. Then bring your contributions to church next week as wecommemorate World Hunger Sunday.

Food for Thought:

My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, Lord, will I seek." Psalm 27:8. To bow before his face and to pray "will take us into the presence of God, and it is in His presence that you take on His likeness and change your heart..." So pray, because prayer enters you into the favour He already has for you. Samuel Chadwick; Watchman Nee


Next Sunday, November 5th
