The national office of our church’s denomination, C&MA, is gathering donations to assist Nepal. You can make donations at church during the next few weeks. Please mark them as “Nepal Relief”. You can also give directly to the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund by clicking the link to our National office’s giving page.
From the Christian & Missionary Alliance Canada
On April 25, 2015, an earthquake with a 7.8 magnitude hit an area between the capital, Kathmandu, and the city of Pokhara, in Nepal. To date, more than 5,000 individuals have been killed, and at least 9,000 people have been injured.
Please pray for those affected by the earthquake, for those who have lost loved ones, and for families whose homes have been destroyed. Much needed help is being mobilized right now. Our Alliance Canadian Regional Developer, Mark, is in dialogue with our partners and personnel on the ground to assess and formulate our response. Director of Alliance Justice and Compassion, Joanne Beach is also communicating with our Canadian-based NGO partners, including co-members of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Pray that God will grant wisdom as we determine how best to respond.
We will be participating in the Canadian Government’s matching program where for every dollar donated by individual Canadians up until May 25th the government will set aside one dollar for their Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund. As with disasters of this magnitude, we will be supporting immediate relief and long-term recovery efforts

I think we've all said, 'Well, I'm not as bad as (someone else's name here)!"
We love to rank the bad things we do from small and minor to large and major. Yet, all those 'bad' things, from small to large, are what the Bible calls sin. The Bible is also clear that all sin is ultimately devastating.
May 24 - June 14, Pastor Wayne will help us understand the destructive power of the bad (any type or level of sin) we do. And how ALL sin affects our relationships with God, others and even ourselves!
This Sunday (and every Sunday) Children's programming from Infants to Grade 5 is available in the 11am Service!
