Join us for our second annual shoebox packing party!
Here’s the schedule for this special Sunday:
• Sunday service @ 10:00am
• Free family lunch provided @ 11:00am
• Packing party begins after lunch around noon
All are welcome - invite someone - fun for the whole family!
What to bring:
• The only thing you need to bring on Sunday is your bags of shoebox fillers for children, ages 5-9.
• We have a fun assembly line planned, plus a special kids table where they’ll write notes to the children who will receive the boxes. What a great hands-on way to teach your children the spirit of giving and an outreach of the love of Jesus.
Shoebox fillers suggestions:
• Toys: Items that children will immediately embrace such as toy cars, yo-yos, jump ropes, balls, toys that light up and make noise (with extra batteries), etc.
• School Supplies: Pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons, markers, notebooks, paper, solar calculators, coloring and picture books, etc.
• Non-liquid Hygiene Items: Toothbrushes, bar soap, combs, washcloths, etc.
We are packing for ages 5-9.

What it’s about:
Did you know God has already provided all the tools you need to live victoriously? Jesus already did the hard part. Now it’s time to do your part. If you have ever felt defeated by life, you are not alone. We all are faced with two choices: We can learn to overcome our circumstances with God’s Word or we can learn to let our circumstances overcome us.
In this 8-week study, discover how to overcome rejection, fear, comparison, shame, unforgiveness, discouragement, sickness, & doubt:
Understand the secrets to overcoming every attack of the enemy
Address the fundamental challenges of life using God’ truth
Be empowered to live in God’s strength, not your own
Learn how to heal from the scars of rejection
Learn why we compare ourselves to others
Learn how to forgive those who’ve hurt us
Learn the key to dealing with discouragement

Our special guests will be the Ministry Team from the Teen Challenge Women’s Centre in Ontario
Teen Challenge has a 50 year history - marked by thousands of changed lives. In 1958, Pastor David Wilkerson reached out to troubled street youth in New York City. Teen Challenge was created to meet the needs of these youths. This is how the ministry of Teen Challenge began and has spread literally around the world. Today, Teen Challenge is a non-profit, interdenominational, faith-based program operating in 82 countries, with over 1,100 autonomous locations internationally, and continues to grow at a dramatic pace worldwide. Approached by members of the local community because of our experience operating residential drug rehabilitation facilities, Teen Challenge opened the GTA Women’s Centre in 2008 to meet the needs of women struggling with addictions. This centre is Ontario’s first women-only centre. To date, the Women’s Centre has celebrated with two dozen graduates of our program. The Teen Challenge story is told in the best-selling book and movie The Cross and the Switchblade.
Don’t miss this special time of inspiration and testimony about how Jesus changes lives. Invite a friend!
Sunday - September 15
After service, we'll all meet at the back of the church for free all-you-can eat hot dogs and a rootbeer station!
All invited - bring a friend!
Jesus was a master storyteller, and parables are the stories He told. Each parable revealed timeless truth and principles regarding the Kingdom of God and matters of life and eternity. Jesus’ parables are simple but brilliant word pictures that bring healthy clarity to our relationship with God and others. All summer long, we’ll be looking at a different parable from the Gospels each Sunday, and discovering the same lessons Jesus taught His first followers over 2,000 years ago. Join us for our SUMMER OF PARABLES as we hear and understand the stories Jesus told. Bring a friend!
FATHER’S DAY is one week away! Don’t miss DADFEST!
