Our offering today is for support 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, September 30th, our offering will be for The Gideons International in Canada. By the divine calling of God, the mission of the Gideons International in Canada is to communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ, through the personal evangelism and Scripture distribution, in Canada and worldwide, so that people may receive eternal life.

Food for Thought: 

If I should tell you my story...." What story can you tell? What has God done for you? How has He played a role in your life? How many of your prayers has He heard? What miracles took place? Do you see Him at work on your behalf in school, at work, at home, in your free time? "If I should tell you my story..." would it be about yourself, or about God?
