Each Stitch Was Sewn in Love

Our small village church in Williamsford has been able to assist the Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) in a big way. At a worship service yesterday they blessed and then boxed up for shipping 584 knitted teddy bears, 86 quilts, blankets and afghans and 26 baby and children’s knitted hats and sweaters. Home Hardware staff in Southampton helped us to box up these gifts to be sent to those in need. They will be shipped to Winnipeg to CLWR and then flown out to those in need in all parts of the world.

Worship Outlines

The Program Committee for Worship of the ELCIC has commissioned Where Two or Three are Gathered: Worship for Small Assemblies, a series of worship outlines for the seasons of the church year using Evangelical Lutheran Worship as the primary resource.  Each week’s worship orders include options for Holy Communion and Service of the Word.

Bishops’ Company Luncheon

More than seventy people accepted Bishops Huras and Pryse’s invitation to the Bishops’ Company Luncheon on October 5, 2019, in Kitchener, Ontario. This year’s Guest Speaker was Rev Dr. Susan Johnson, National Bishop of the ELCIC. She told about the work of Lutheran World Federation (LWF), Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and Holy Land (ELCJHL) and the United Evangelical Lutheran Church in Argentina and Uruguay (IELU), who are some of our global mission partners.

Living Our Faith– PRAY*READ*WORSHIP*LOVE

You are invited to join in a new four-year emphasis on Living our Faith, as together we pray, read worship and love.

Starting this September, ELCIC members are invited to join in a year of prayer. As a whole church, we will learn about prayer, grow in our experience of prayer and deepen our regular prayer practice.

In September 2020, we will move on to a year of reading and learn about scripture together. September 2021 will see us focusing on a year of worship and private devotion. And September 2022 will bring us into a year of focusing on love.

Joy in the journey

“I am looking forward to this weekend,” I said to my husband back in late May. Before he got a chance to ask the question I read on his face – or at least I thought I did – I answered: “These events are well planned, I want to be with other women, and I like the theme of the retreat.”

Grace Rankin Picnic

On a sunny Sunday morning in August, Grace church on Green Lake Road hosted an outdoor service and picnic.  Notices had been placed in mail boxes across the community to invite families in the neighbourhood to join in on a special gathering.
   
   Arrangements were made to have “The Intermittents”, a Pembroke area men’s choir on hand who opened the event with songs from memory lane and to lead with hymns during the service.
