2019-01-06 Bulletin


Please remember our church family in your daily prayers, at mealtimes and during your personal devotions. Continue to pray for John Bos, Shirley Bauer, Henry & Anita Geldof and Steve Ogi. Remember those who are unable to worship regularly with us: Jennie Bajema, Bill Wildeboer and Rena DeRuiter. Pray also for those who struggle in silence with ongoing physical, spiritual, and emotional issues. I thank God, whom I serve, as my ancestors did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. 2 Timothy 1:3.

Dear congregation, thank you again for all the delicious meals, the many beautiful Christmas cards we received and of course, all your prayers. We are so thankful for the wonderful loving care that John is receiving in the Red Deer Hospice. In God's time, heavenly angels will carry him home to his Heavenly Father. Shirley Bos and family

Congratulations to Helena Kits & Jenny Bajema as they celebrated their birthdays last Thursday. To John Stol we wish you a wonderful day this Friday. To all we pray, that your special day and your new year, continue to be filled with the Lord’s rich blessings! J

Continue to pray for our missionaries around the world.

Come out and join the CACHS drama class 

for a fun evening of laughs and audience engagement. This evening will include the one act comedy; This is a Test by Stephen Gregg along with other skits and performances that showcase the talents of the performers. This is a Test is a play about a young high school student, Alan, who cannot seem to stop daydreaming long enough to write his test. It seems like everything is against him, his teacher, classmates, and especially that voice stuck in his head. This lighthearted comedy is relatable to anyone who has ever been in school or had to take a test. You can purchase tickets in advance by calling 403-782-4535 or at the door, if any tickets are remaining. This is one evening you will not want to miss! Cost for this event is $10 per person, on Thursday & Friday, January 17th & 18th, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. at CACHS Gym.
