Pastors Garage

*Pastors Garage-Dec 7/2023*

Hey there, so I’m gonna just stick to what all is going on in the next few
weeks. This Sunday Clint Taylor from Regina will be joining us to share.
Rachel Kardash will be leading worship.

The following Saturday, Dec 16th, will be our Christmas banquet and concert
with Curtis and Bonnie Szakacs and family. Doors open at 5:30, supper at 6,
concert at 7. The meal is all planned, if some of the church people could
bring some desserts that would be great. Talk to Kevin or Carol
Speidelsbach about what you could bring as they are giving leadership to
the meal. Please, please, use this event as an opportunity to invite
someone to church!

The following morning, Sunday Dec 17, will be the kids Christmas program
and a child dedication for the children of Yvette and JJ Annandale. Rachel
Drinnan will be leading worship, and there will be no potluck that day as
the banquet was just the night before.

Sunday Dec 24, CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!!, Janelle Oshowy will be sharing something
the Lord has laid on her heart and Kelley and myself will be leading
worship for the morning service. That evening there will be a family
candlelight service starting at 7 here at the church.

The following Sunday will be new years eve! There will be a normally
scheduled service that morning but I am still open to some kinda family
night that evening if there are those out there that are interested in
attending and giving some leadership to it. Let me know. My vision would be
a movie and popcorn for the youngins, they could even come in pajamas, and
just a hang out time with finger food for us olduns, heck we could wear our
pajamas as well!

Kevin Speidelsbach and Lowell Oshowy have been working on a men’s retreat
at Kenosee Lake Bible camp on Jan 12-14. The cost is $150 for the weekend
and James Graham, the pastor of the Whitewood Evangelical Missionary church
is the speaker. If you have a desire to go please let Kevin or Lowell know
asap as they need to make a call on this event this weekend in order to let
Kenosee know.

I would encourage you to make getting together with family and friends a
priority this holiday season. Let us as a church family seek to grow
together in unity and fellowship. “And may the Lord make your love for one
another and for all people grow and overflow, just as our love for you
overflows. May He, as a result, make your hearts strong, blameless, and
holy as you stand before God our Father when our Lord Jesus comes again
with all his holy people. Amen.” 1 Thessalonians 4:12,13
