MISSION CAPSULE: In Psalm 86, David praises God saying, “All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord; they will bring glory to your name.” With support from Presbyterians Sharing … the members of Montreal West Presbyterian Church are experiencing this beautiful vision in their own church. God brought a new diversity of people into this once small congregation and the people responded with welcome. The growth of Montreal West over the last several years, and their renewed sense of vitality and joy is a testament to the importance of inter-cultural ministry and the power of the God who created all nations.
