SUNDAY, AUGUST 2nd, 2020 - Join us for morning worship at 10:00 – Rev. Katherine McCloskey leading.

MISSION CAPSULES: The Well Church in Mississauga, started with a group of only 13 people. They were drawn together by their deep love of Jesus and a desire to share that love with others. Inspired by a vision to become a welcoming space for second-generation immigrants, they developed a style of evangelism and worship that spoke to those they desired to reach. Since the congregation started worshipping together three years ago, their community has grown and has become a home for many young people who had strayed from the church. Please pray for the Well Church and the many other churches in The Presbyterian Church in Canada that are making space for a new generation of believers.

MONDAY, AUGUST 3rd, 2020 - Theology on Tap gathers on Mondays, but as this is a holiday I am not sure if they are tonight. The book they are discussing is Acts of Faith by Eboo Patel.

NOTE: As you might have heard by now, the Federal Government has given approval for sponsored refugees to travel to Canada. After we have proven sponsorship Hasan and his family will be free to come. It could be six days, six weeks or six months, but it’s happening.

Practice the Pause: When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause. AND when you pause, pray.

Have a good week - stay safe, we need each other. MB
