A Mid-Summers night dream!

What a fantastic summer!  We have had a huge range of weather, from hot sunny days to heavy water filled lawns.  The mosquitoes have been like swarms but the joy of being outside is also evident of everyones face.  After a long winter - summers are always great!

Here at Massey Place Church we have been working hard throughout the summer at engaging with people - people just like YOU!  We feel like God is still calling us to connect with our friends, families and neighbourhoods!  So our amazing intern has created new welcome packages - two different ones in fact!  If you are interested in learning more about the church or are new to the neighbourhood/Saskatoon let us know and we can get you a free package.  They include everything from community events, bus schedules to local amenities to local support for those new to english and information about Massey Place Community Church!

There are made - and ready to go!

I also want to invite you to come out and join us - each Sunday.

10:30 am for our English service and 3:00 pm for our Spanish service.
