UPCOMING SERVICES

Next Sunday, July 28th 

Is the Lacombe Days Community service when we join other Lacombe churches and give praise together to the God we all follow. This is a wonderful witness to all of Lacombe of how our faith joins us together instead of separating us. PLEASE NOTE! There will be no Hot Dog Luncheon as reported last week. Diana Boot has rescheduled her visit for the fall. Enjoy your time in the community and worship together

OUR CHURCH FAMILY

Please remember our church family in your daily prayers, at mealtimes and during your personal devotions. Continue to pray for healing for Steve Ogi. Remember those who are unable to worship regularly with us: Jennie Bajema, Bill Wildeboer, Dave Reitsma and Rena DeRuiter. Pray also for those who struggle in silence with ongoing physical, spiritual, and emotional issues.

Prayer: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. 'May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.' For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say (pray), 'Peace be within you. Psalm.122:6-8

Please remember Willy Stebner this week as her mother Willy Ubbing is in the University Hospital in Edmonton. Willy’s mother is very weak from pneumonia. Yesterday, Willy Ubbing will have celebrated her 95th birthday. Please pray for better health and that her lungs may clear, and for 95 years. We also ask that you remember Willy Stebner as she cares for her mother during this time. May our Lord grant you what you need, strength and peace.

It is with great sadness that we inform the congregation that Steve Ogi’s father, Delmar Ogi passed away early in the morning of Friday, July 19, 2019. Delmar was 77 years of age. To Steve, Caroline and the family we pray that our Lord lift you up and hold you tight, grant you peace and strength in the coming weeks and months.

DENOMINATIONAL NEWS

Classis Home Missions

We are looking for a member to be on the Home Missions Committee. We have appreciated having someone from your area serving on our team in the past. Currently we do not have anyone. We meet on the south side of Edmonton to make it as easy as possible for someone from your area to come to meetings. We envision three to four meetings this coming year. This person should be a non-minister. Our hope is that they can serve as our finance/clerk person.

PERSECUTED CHURCH

Syria

On July 11th, a church was the target of a car bomb attack. At least eleven people were injured. Cars and buildings sustained serious damages. Blame has been placed on an ISIS terrorist group. While American-backed forces declared victory over ISIS in March, local cells continue to pose a threat to the local population. Praise God that this attack did not cause any fatalities or worse damages. Pray for the rebuilding efforts and to encourage the Christian community throughout the process. Also intercede for Syria's governing authorities as they seek to establish adequate defenses for their citizens' safety. May those responsible for the attack, be brought to justice and realize their need for the forgiveness and grace of God.

Food for Thought: 

The other day someone showed me the lyrics to a song titled Royalty by Francesca Battistelli. "From rejected to accepted, from forgotten to remembered, from abandoned to exalted, from so broken to beloved. No longer orphans. Now sons and daughters worthy and wanted, we (now) belong." Thank you, Jesus, for what we may have in You!
