CLAY Youth Service, October 23 – Not For Sale

notforsaleThis past summer Messiah youth joined 900 other youths from Lutheran and Anglican churches across Canada at a Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth (CLAY) gathering in Prince Edward Island. Before the gathering we went on a three day bus trip in the Maritimes with other youth in our Saskatchewan synod and youth from the Manitoba/North Western Ontario synod. To cut a long story short, the trip was awesome!

This Sunday, October 23, the youth will share with our congregation some of the experience from the bus trip and the CLAY gathering. The theme of the service is the same one as the theme of the gathering: Not For Sale.

Join us in church this Sunday!

Praise Appeal Sunday, October 16

praiseappeal2016Our service on October 16 will be a Praise Appeal service, supported and prepared with material provided by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, ELCIC. The ELCIC Praise Appeal allows the opportunity to highlight different aspects of the ministry of the wider church. The theme of this year’s Praise Appeal Sunday is: Human Beings Not For Sale.

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery, and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to exploit human beings for some type of labour or commercial sex purpose. Globally, according to the International Labour Organization, it is estimated that there are some 20.7 million men, women, and children who are detected as victims of human trafficking. Sunday’s Praise Appeal Service follows the initiative of the Lutheran World Federation that the three years leading up to the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation in 2017, focus on Creation—Not for Sale; Human Beings—Not for Sale; Salvation—Not for Sale.

Join us in church this Sunday – all are welcome.

Thanksgiving Sunday, October 9

Thanksgiving turkeysIt is the season to be thankful. On Thanksgiving Sunday we invite you to come and join us for worship on October 9 at 10:30am to celebrate. May these words from one of our Thanksgiving hymns be an encouragement to you:

Come, ye thankful people, come;
raise the song of harvest home.
All be safely gathered in
ere the winter storms begin.
God, our maker, doth provide
for our wants to be supplied.
Come to God’s own temple, come,
raise the song of harvest home.
