Welcome to the gathering of the community of believers known as Calvary Temple Church.
It is so gratifying to be involved today in believers’ baptism on this May long weekend. You will once again hear life stories of amazing transformation, as individuals tell of how Jesus has changed their lives forever. If you have come to our gathering today to specifically support someone, you are most welcome. I trust the service is an encouragement to you.
We are one week away from our One Heart Service at the Investors Group Field. I’m truly excited about the possibilities for the Lord’s Church in Winnipeg as we come together to worship God. There are 85 congregations of believers planning to be involved. There will not be a gathering here next Sunday at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. We will be moving those two services to the Investors Group Field. There are buses for approximately 400 of us leaving our parking lots in two stages. Early, 11:15 a.m. arriving in time for the Family Fun Hour which starts at 12:00 p.m. (noon), then the buses will return to Calvary Temple and leave again at 12:15 p.m. to enable you to arrive in time for the 1:00 p.m. service. My friend Ruth Wall is still in need of ushers; please sign up today! Please remember that cars with 4 passengers or more will be given priority for parking at the university. Shuttle buses will run from Church of the Rock and Southland Church at 85 Keslar Road. Also keep in mind on Pembina bus 60 and 161 are free to all attendees, if you show your ticket to the event.
Our youth retreat at Calvary Temple Camp is happening this weekend. 55 youth and volunteers attending.
In conjunction with “Love Winnipeg” we will once again be hosting “Home for Lunch” in our parking lot on June 2nd. Kailey Knapp will be in the foyer with sign up sheets for this amazing opportunity to love on our neighbourhood. Hundreds of people are needed to make this all possible. New Love Winnipeg shirts are for sale in the foyer today. They are $7.00 each.
There are two major Missions outreaches ramping up for June. Alonso Rosales and John Frank are heading to Cuba, and Alfred and Lynda Flett and Danny and Remy Amoyo are heading to the Philippines. Your designated giving is especially needed for the Philippines trip. Please allow God to direct you in this matter in the next couple of weeks.
The Desrosiers are returning from Romania on June 3rd and will be here until August 15th and would like to borrow a vehicle for their time here in western Canada. If you can help with this endeavor please contact me through the office.
This Saturday, May 25th, following our 9:00 a.m. prayer meeting, we’ll open the Buntain Chapel until 6:00 p.m. for Prayer and Fasting. Come and go as you’re able. We want to be in prayer for our One Heart Service but also for the many physical needs of healing in our Church family.
Thanks for being faithful today!
Bruce and Miriam
