From this small beginning it was shown to me to be like streams of light that went clear round the world. EGW, LS 125




Dear Church members and friends,

When a disaster strikes the Maritimes, who will be ready to respond?  Who will be  prepared to know how to help the most effectively? ADRA wants to train YOU!  The conference would like a group of people they can call on to help with disasters in our provinces.  Join us MAY 30, 12:00 pm - 2 PM. for ADRA's Disaster Response Training and Emergency Preparedness.  Please feel free to share the poster with all you know.  Church members and community members, ADRA would like to train everyone who is interested.  


See you May 30!

Please pray for our brothers and sisters in China who are currently suffering under a severe wave of government restrictions when it comes to freedom of worship. - Online Prayer Room

Hi Friends,

Life is filled with paradoxes: farmers preserve and multiply their grain by burying it; serotinous pinecones must be melted by searing flames for the cones to open and release their life-giving seeds.
The underlying principle of heaven’s kingdom works the same way: “If you really want to live, die!”
To understand this principle, check out todays’ message: Dying to Live. 
Here is the YouTube link: Dying to Live

Blessings to you and your family,
Mike and René Lemon


Hi Friends,

When you’re in a slump, on the days when you’re just not “not feeling it,” you feel weak, helpless, and empty—like a dried-up sponge on a scorching summer day.
Sometimes all it takes to pull you out of your down day is a simple call from a friend; however, when you’re not feeling it, answering the call means listening to your better judgement.
Here is the YouTube link: Answering the Call

Blessings to you and your family,
Mike and René Lemon
