The Messenger


We're a Community. 

Christian Fellowship is important as we gather and enjoy the company of fellow believers in Christ. If you are looking for a Christian community, these events are good introduction to the wonderful folks who make up our church family. You are always welcome to contact the church office for more information. Each week we publish The Messenger, a newsletter full of coming events, community activities and special requests for our church community.

 This Week's Messenger Highlights

FRIDAY NIGHT CLUB RESUMES SEPT 24

In September we will restart our popular Friday Night Kids’ Club – an exciting program of crafts, games, Bible lessons … and even dinner for the whole family! Kids' Club will meet on Friday, September 24 from 6:00-8:00 pm. The program is open to children from age 3 to Grade 6. Younger children may attend if a parent/guardian remains with them at all times. Parents of older children are welcome to stay for the program, or to enjoy a couple hours off for other activities. Teen members of the family are invited to stay for a youth group meeting elsewhere in the building.

Due to the current COVID-prevention regulations, all those over 12 years of age must wear a mask inside the building. Masks are optional for those 12 and under. 

Sending love to youth in crisis

Our ongoing local service project is to support the work of Cyrus Center, the youth shelter and outreach program in Chilliwack. To help with this mission, we are collecting socks, underwear and individually wrapped snacks such as granola bars. Your gifts may be brought to the church anytime during office hours. You may also support this project by making a donation to our Local Relief fund. We are also participating in the Meal Train, providing dinner once or twice a month for youth staying in the shelter, or without access to regular meals.  To help with the meal preparation please contact the office.

Thank you for your continued financial support 

These are financially challenging times for many individual and organizations, including churches. We have appreciated all those who have continued to support the work of this congregation through difficult times. There are several ways to contribute:

  • Etransfer your gift to [email protected]  You may designate some of your offering for special projects by indicating your wishes in the Message section of the transfer screen. We are set up for auto deposit so you will not need to provide us with a password. If this is your first gift to us, and you would like a charitable receipt, please include your full name and mailing address in the Message section of the transfer.
  • Mail cheques to the church at 8871 School St. Chilliwack, BC  V2P 4L5. Please do not send cash through the mail. 
  • Put your cash or cheques in an envelope and put through the mail slot at the front door of the church. The gates are open so you may access the building from 10 am-2 pm Monday to Thursday. Please include your full name, and your mailing address if this is your first gift to us.

 

Please pray for ... 

  • Those affected by the COVID pandemic around the world, especially those working in health care and other essential services. 
  • Lutheran Bible Translators Mike and Kara Kuhn and their children who have returned to the mission field in Cameroon. We especially thank God for the family's recovery from Covid-19 and for the successful treatment for malaria for one of the children.
  • Pastors, missionaries and teachers who are still working tirelessly to bring the Word of God to a world that is broken and afraid.
