In the world today we read the newspaper and believe what it says while we read the Bible and question it's truth. As we move away from His truth we remove the moral compass from the soul of our society and things become worse. As believers we must uphold His truth as our guide though life. "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." Colossians 3:16 It's the first few words in this verse that makes the rest of this verse possible for us to fulfill. We are to let His word or allow His Word to dwell on the inside of us. If we allow His word to rule then His word will help us to decide what to do. We are to make room in us to allow His word to live in us richly or to the full measure. Then as we approach others, we will walk in the Spirit of His Holy Word and speak in a flow like music coming from our heart. Our words will then help others to live according to the grace and goodness of God.
Just to let you know that over 4000 Christmas Shoe Boxes have been shipped out this week from Cape Breton. Martin McCarthy and his team of workers did a great job to reach this number of shoe boxes. We believe that children around the world will be forever changed by this gift. Praise the Lord!
Ozzie Marsman's wife Marie passed away this week. The visitation is tonight 6-9 and the funeral is tomorrow at 1 pm from the Pier Community Funeral Home (the former Pier Salvation Army Church)
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'Parting Ways.' Moses was someone who was always parting ways? What can we learn from his good and bad decisions. In the evening, 'Opposites Or the Same.' The Lord uses different props that are opposites to describe the same event.
Coming up next Saturday or a week from tomorrow @ 6pm is our annual Church Family Christmas Banquet. Tickets are $15 per person or $50 for a family of 4 or more.

Continue to pray for all those in need, there are several of our members who need a divine healing touch from Jesus. Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
