This week we will take an offering for the Office of Social Justice. The Office of Social Justice works to develop a deeper understanding of and response to God’s call to let justice flow like a river in both our personal and communal lives, as well as in the structures of our societies.

Next Sunday, June 10th we will take an offering for the Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre. They provide compassionate support and education for individuals and families impacted by unexpected pregnancy and related issues. They have offices in Red Deer, Olds, Sundre and Rocky Mountain House. All of our programs and services are free, confidential, and are offered in a safe and non-judgmental environment regardless of age, gender, race, or religion.

Food for Thought: Hosea 14:1-2: Return, O Israel, to the LORD your God. Your sins have been your downfall! Take words with you and return to the LORD. Say to Him: “Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously, that we may offer the fruit of our lips.”

Today we all, young and old, have an opportunity to pray specifically for another person in our church by exchanging names, as we did back in March. Please use the center paper of the bulletin to write your name. The names will be collected in the third basket, right after the two Offering baskets. Then, when you leave church, you can pick a name to pray for this week. Please feel free to talk to that person or call them to find out what you can pray and give thanks for with them.

Next Sunday, June 17th

We welcome Pastor Bryan Lanting as he leads us in worship. His message will be entitled Seek First Your Father’s Kingdom with a focus on Luke 12:22-34. All are welcome! Pastor Bryan is a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. He’s married to Sydney, and previously the pastor at Gospel of Grace Community Church in Calgary.
