Happy New Year.  Looks like we got some rain rather than all snow in our Nor'easter.  Pastor Mark and the team must have been singing, 'There's a Nor'easter blowing.'  I think the storm can be a test to see if we will either complain about the rain or thank God for our roof.  Complaining seems to come natural but praise and thanksgiving seems strange to flow out of us.  We did say that we are going to try harder to be more thankful and give God thanks so enjoy the day.  I truly believe until we learn to give thanks where we are we will not advance any farther and enjoy life any better.  So risk an AMEN!
It's our first Family Sunday of 2018, to think that we started Family Sunday back in 2012.  It's so wonderful to say, 'look what the Lord has started by us working together.'  Each one of you as a church family will receive an eternal reward for your labour that you invested into this event.  We start at 10:15 with food and fellowship followed by the morning service  This Sunday morning I will be sharing on, 'Willing and Obedient.'  We are willing to receive from God but are we willing to obey the One who we are willing to receive from?
All of the weekly Bible Studies are back up and running this week.  There are 2 men's Bible Studies, 1 ladies Bible Study, 2 house Bible Studies, and our mid week church Bible Study in Sydney River.  Youth also meet on Saturday evening at our church location.
Our new life class that was set to start next week from 9:30 to 10:15 will be put on hold due to sickness.  A later date will be set and we will let you know.
Its winter time and we could have some cancelations.  Please let us know how to contact you encase we do have to cancel sometime.  We will have cancelation on our web site, our face book, and we'll send out an email.  You could also call us or send us an email if you have any questions.
Continue to pray for all those in need, lots of love, looking forward to seeing you soon, Pastor Kevin and Alice.
