The regular routine has returned!

For many, the routine hasn't changed.  For eleven of us, we got to spend an amazing week working in Cuba with our Brethren in Christ family, it has been an adjustment.  It was great week, to serve, learn and grow alongside of the Cuban people.  Please click on the Cuba Mission website link above - to see pictures and hear stories about the trip.

Now for the Saskatoon items.

We continue to serve in the various ways that we are able; through the Sunday services at 10:30 in english and 3:00 in Spanish each Sunday.  The various community programs, like Nurturing with Rhymes which will start again in 1 months time with there toddler program (email here for details). As well as a growing list of studies, small groups and serving opportunities.

We are again participating in a joint Good Friday Service, with 3 other churches meeting at Sutherland Evangelical Church, 110 - 104st west in Sutherland (the old Catholic building).  This will be a great time to celebrate 'New Beginnings' and remember the new beginnings that Jesus brought, through his Death on the cross.

We especially invite you to join us on the coming Sundays, This week, Sunday the 25th, we will bridge the mission trip and Easter with a message on the sending of the Disciples from the Gospels.  The following Sunday we celebrate Palm Sunday, then Good Friday and Easter or Resurrection Sunday follow.

You are invited to join us - we begin at 10:30 each Sunday, there is a staffed and monitored nursery available, and a great kids church program that dismisses after the first set of worship songs each Sunday. (You are also welcome to keep you children with you if you wish).  If you have any questions, please contact the church and we will do our best to try and answer them.

Thanks - and may God Bless you in the days ahead!

Off to Cuba!

Well, with so many different things happening in the past weeks, and so much to look forward to I will just highlight a couple items of interest.

Today - Sunday March 4th, the Mission trip to Cuba begins.  11 people are heading to Cuba for 1 week.  Returning Sunday the 11th.  We are going on a serving and learning trip, excited to partner with our sister churches near Havana.

At the church here, Pastor Miguel will be leading the Spanish service (at 2 for Sunday school and 3 for Church) - and our very own Ray Sider is speaking for the next two Sunday in the morning service, "Living Responsible in an age of excuses", don't miss it - it will be a great message with some amazing people.

May prayer is that God may bless you in this month of March, whoever you are, and wherever you are from.  May you experience the love and forgiveness and blessings of the one who created it all!
