Today’s offering is for Ministry to Seafarers. Ministry to Seafarers meets with visiting seafarers, communicating the saving grace of Jesus Christ, through words and deeds. Their vision is to visit as many ships as possible which pass through the Port of Vancouver in order to share the Good News of God’s love in Jesus Christ with seafarers in Word and deed by providing literature and other resources, by serving them in practical ways at the seafarers’ centres, and by engaging in quality Christian dialogue whenever and however possible.

On Christmas Day, December 25th we will take an offering for World Renew. Support World Renew as it responds to the enormous humanitarian needs of people around the world. Working with local church partners already on the ground to reach out to crisis-affected families, World Renew is there responding to natural disasters and conflict in many countries.

Next Sunday, December 29thour offering will befor Fuente De Vida Church in Ensenada, Mexico. We as a church continue to support Pastors Jes’us & Evelia from the Fuente de Vida Church. We have sent many mission teams there to help build the church and homes in the colonia nearby. Please continue to support them in prayer as well.
