Each summer, the students in our Church have taken on the challenge of doing the parking for the Harvest Festival as a fundraiser. This year, in addition to students and parents helping out, we’re looking for some extra help making this weekend happen. If you have 3-4 hours to spare over the course of the weekend of August 11th – 13th, please talk to Pastor Corey or Kaitlyn Loewen and we’ll get you signed up!

Please pray for the team of people (Linda Blatz, Katrina Woelk, Stephanie Fehr, Tanya Fehr, Walter and Winnie Fehr, Abby Janzen and Albert Martens) who are planning for the children’s camp and community outreach in Pauingassi First Nation on August 10 -17. The team is looking forward to reconnecting with the people of Pauingassi. It will be a week filled with many hours of activities, preparing community meals and building relationships with the children and adults. Pray that the team will be blessed with energy, strength, health, safety and many opportunities to share God’s love. Thank you to people who have made donations to help cover the expenses of this mission trip to Pauingassi and to the people who have volunteered to make cookies for the Pauingassi events.

Service Opportunity:  We are again looking to add more childcare workers to the roster for this coming September.  If you enjoy spending time with toddlers, and would be willing to give about half an hour of your time, 5 or 6 times a year, this service opportunity is for you!  Please contact the office to sign up!

Bursaries – If you are attending a Christian high school or post secondary school this year, the church offers bursaries of up to $500.  Applications are available on our website or by contacting the office.  Application deadline is August 31.
