40 Day Lenten Reading through the New Testament

We have recently started reading through the New Testament with our brothers and sisters from Christ Lutheran.  We are meeting at the Richard’s house in Spruce View Monday nights throughout Lent to watch a short video related to the readings and carry on a discussion.  All are welcome.

If you can’t find the time to read and maybe do a lot of driving there is a very compelling audio podcast version put out by the Bible Society the links for which can be found at the attached site:

40 Day New Testament Reading – Audio Bible

I would encourage you to spend time in God’s revelation of Himself to us in the Bible on a daily basis.  He will transform you into a new creation from the inside out through the reading and hearing of His word.09b0aad304c76babab94fe399f04aebe

Pastor Fiege takes a call in Nipiwin, SK

We are sad to see our Pastor and friend for more than 16 years go to a new call in Nipiwin, SK starting in January, 2014.  In celebration of his family’s service to our congregation we invite  you to a Fiege Farewell Fowl Feast at the church hall on December 8th following service.  The Pastor’s last service will be Christmas Eve services at Bethany and Raven (see the calendar for details).

Pastor Alvin Oberhammer has graciously offered to fill in as vacancy pastor in the new year.DSC_0053

First Ever Friday JAM Night

The first Jesus And Me (JAM) night happened this last Friday.  Starting at 6pm we had some chili, sang some songs, went on a treasure hunt, a short discussion on the value that we should place on gift of salvation that Jesus has provided for us and games.  The next JAM night will occur at 6pm and will include a supper, a short devotion and then we will all be going to the Halloween Family Dance at the hall.

A Visit from President Bugbee

This last Sunday we were graced with the presence of the Lutheran Church Canada president in a joint service with our neighbours and good friends Christ Lutheran Church. President Bugbee preached and gave a talk after the service about the importance of daily bible reading in the life of the believer and how it changes your whole landscape for Christ from the inside out. Thank you to all those that helped make it such a special day.
