Weekly "What’s Up"
from Pastor Bruce Martin
Posted January 14, 2021
Welcome to the Community of Believers known as Calvary Temple Church. Thank you for joining us exclusively online this Sunday at 9:00 a.m. & 10:10 a.m., with our Big City Avenue livestream for kids at 11:30 a.m. We are so thankful that we are still able to live stream all of our services. For those unable to join us online, please note this NEW local phone number that you can call to listen to our traditional service live at 9:00 a.m. 204-808-3080. THERE IS NO LONGER A CODE REQUIRED. If you call ahead of time, this system will call you when we go live. Also, if you miss the live stream, you can call in and listen afterwards to the recording. This weekend I will be giving the second message in the series I’m calling, “All In,” which is taking a close look examining Mark 12:30-31 “And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”
We are once again looking forward to our Annual General Meeting on February 22nd at 6:30 p.m. This is a time when, as a church family, we look back so we can look ahead. I know that I’m looking forward to being reminded of how God faithfully provided for us through this pandemic. It is not clear right now as to the location and format of this yearly meeting. As we get closer, we will be sure to let you know further details.
In the meantime, we’re asking our members to participate in our nomination process for the Official Church Board. This year there are three (three year term) vacancies. Click Here for the form and instructions. If you need a paper copy, please call the office.
Our Believers’ Prayer Meeting continues to meet on Zoom, Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. To get connected to the zoom call, please e-mail Pastor Cher at and you will receive the link and prayer list in your e-mail Friday afternoon.
Our Weekly Prayer Focus this week is Albright Church with Pastor Sam Devine and his wife Judith. Our Shared Funding Partner today is Anna Morgante with Mission Canada.
We still want to be praying and fasting as a Church family. I have appreciated participating in this every 3rd Thursday of the month. Even though we can’t gather, please join us from where you will be this Thursday, January 21st. In a recent prayer time I’ve noticed there are many people in our church family going through chemo treatments and facing very challenging times. If you would like to pray for them by name, please click here for the prayer list. Together we will trust the Holy Spirit to speak to us and pray through us.
For those awaiting your official giving receipt from us for 2020, we are aiming to mail these out to everyone in the next two weeks.
Thank you for your faithfulness!
In His service,
Pastor Bruce and Miriam

Prison Fellowship Canada has found a unique way to connect with those incarcerated in Manitoba during this time, via telephone. Connecting over the phone gives prisoners the opportunity to connect to a trained PFC volunteer for a one-to-one session over the phone. This conversation focuses on providing spiritual friendship, prayer and encouragement to prisoners on their spiritual journey. Visit https://prisonfellowship.ca/ to get involved today.
