There's More!

Let us grow in Christ and go with Christ in 2017.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.  Ephesians 3:20,21

Vision Prayer

O God, with all our hearts we long to be:

a movement of churches
transformed by Christ,
transforming Canada and the world.

By your grace and for your glory:

  • Renew and empower us through a fresh encounter with yourself
  • Release us to be strategic in service, kingdom-connected in practice, passionate in pursuit of your mission and mercy


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

The Noisy Offering

Sunday, January 8th TOTAL:  $329
     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, February 12th 

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.  Glenn Birch is leading the class in a study focusing and discussing the 12 disciples/apostles. The study is based on the book The Master and His Men by J Stuart Holden.  Think about someone starting a movement today, especially a movement with a worldwide objective. The first thing necessary is a list of names.  It is His choice of associates (the common man) that we are studying.

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.
 


Sunday, February 26th in the Campbell Fellowship Hall.
There will be a soup lunch provided immediately following the morning service and the annual meeting will be in session.  Members are strongly encouraged to do everything in their power to be attend this meeting.
Our secretary would like all the annual reports to be submitted ASAP and that includes Pastor Moe's report!
Closing Words: 

There are many things that we may do or say in any given day.  There are also many things that we may choose to leave unsaid or undone.  May this little quote be an encouragement to each of us:

Flatter me, and I may not believe you. 
Criticize me, and I may not like you. 
Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. 
Encourage me, and I will not forget you. 

- William Arthur Ward


Take the time to be an encouragement to someone and may God use and bless what you have to say!

Have A Great Week!

Pastor Moe
