Remembering Anniversaries

This Sunday marks the beginning of our second year here in Edmonton and next Sunday is the anniversary of our first gathering! We are filled with thanks for how God has faithfully led us and is allowing us to serve Him and the church over the past 12 months.

Coming to a new city with no close contacts was a step of faith, but we have been secure in the call of God to be in Edmonton, and He has opened doors for us and showed us each step as it has come.

We count it a joy and privilege to be able to offer verse-by-verse Bible teaching. "Simply teach the Bible simply" is just what we love to do!

It is quite humbling to consider that as we celebrate our first year in this church plant, there are multitudes of our brothers and sisters in Christ across the globe who face threat and persecution for desiring to meet for worship and to even own or read the Word of God.

November 10, 2013 is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Please remember them, even as you thank God that you can freely assemble and witness in this country. May we make the most of the freedoms and opportunities we have and let the light of Jesus shine through!
