Today we bring our offerings for the Calvin Theological Seminary. Calvin Theological Seminary is about preparing faithful, creative and compassionate leaders, who will nurture disciples, renew churches and be bearers of shalom to a world in turmoil. Its Reformed approach to theological education uniquely equips students to face the complexities of ministry in this rapidly changing world. All of this happens through an experience that joins head, heart and hands together in joyful response to God’s sovereign claim over all creation.

Next Sunday, April 22nd we will take an offering for World Renew Refugee Sunday. On this day we celebrate and reflect on the compassionate work of churches across Canada that have reached out in support of refugees in need of protection and have become neighbors to them. World Renew’s refugee sponsorship ministry continues to give refugees, their sponsoring churches, and people around the world new opportunities to see God’s goodness at work. Will you join World Renew in celebrating and giving thanks for these signs of hope?

Next Sunday, April 22nd 

Wayne Bouwman will lead us in worship and the El Omar family, sponsored by the Lacombe Community Refugee Effort will be with us, sharing their experiences as part of World Renew’s Refugee Sunday. Margaret Njuguna will also be visiting and will share about her work with the En-Gedi Children’s home in Kenya and Jan & Cootje Voorbij will speak about their recent mission to Cuba.
