  • Renew and empower us through a fresh encounter with yourself

Use us to fulfill your purpose for Canada and the world.

The Noisy Offering

Sunday, December 11th TOTAL:  $128
     Please pray for the ministries that these funds will help support.  Pray for Denise Dube and the lives of the girls and women that her ministry is touching.
Next Noisy Offering: Sunday, January 8th

THE PARVEZ FAMILY UPDATE:  It is incredible to think that the Parvez family have been here in St. Catharines for over a year now.  We are so thankful for each of them.  We give thanks to God that William has found full-time employment.  He is currently on a probation period and on April 1st will receive full-time benefits.  PRAISE THE LORD!

Please continue to pray and consider how you might give financially.  The Westburne Alliance Church is official sponsor of this family.  You can give through your offering envelopes by writing 'Refugee Sponsorship' on the line marked 'SPECIAL'. The Board of Elders will be monitoring our sponsorship in these next  6 months to the point where the Parvez family become financially independent.  Thank you for the love that you have extended to them!

   Our Adult Bible Class has resumed and is meeting in the church library at 9:30 a.m.  Kyle Moate is leading the study on the book of Colossians.  Get yourself a coffee in the foyer and join together for a study of the Apostle Paul's letter to the church at Colossae and discover the timeless truths that are relevant for the Church and all believers today!

 

RightNow Media is an online resource for churches to equip, train and inspire people to live out their faith.  It has programs available for all ages.  You can view these programs on your computer, electronic tablets and your smartphones.  Here is something else you need to know:   IT IS TOTALLY FREE TO YOU!!!!

To give rightness Media a try, send an email to douglassider@gmail.com and ask for an invitation.


Thank you for all the food that was given to help produce the Christmas food hampers.
We were able to deliver 5 food hampers to families that are connected to Westburne and we gave 6 full hampers for the Salvation Army to deliver.  There was also a large amount of food that was left over that we were able to give to the Salvation Army.  I know that God is and will use these gifts of food to draw families to Himself.
 
Closing Words: 

Another calendar year is almost complete.  Is it just me or does time seem to be flying faster?

Take a few minutes to reflect and remember this past year--the trials, the tests, the triumphs.
What are you thankful for?  Give thanks to God.
What are some of the needs in your life?  Cry out to Him.  He is our Abba Father and as one of His children He loves you so much.
What has God started to do in your life?  Pray that God will continue to do that new work in and through you.

May this time of reflection see you drawn closer to God and His goodness.

Have A Happy New Year!

Pastor Moe
