Prayer of Hope and Operation Christmas Child and More...

It's Operation Christmas Child time again.  Everyone has the opportunity to make a difference in a child's life and share Jesus love.  Get your box and packing instructions from the church, go shopping, pack your box and return it to the church on November 18th.  We'll pray together over the boxes that Jesus will express himself to these kids through the gift and the people who get to give them out.

Cape Breton Screaming Eagles Chapels will be starting again on November 6th, please be in prayer for the team and Pastor Rick, Joe and Lloyd as we go and share the good news with some young men who are away from family and friends, living out their dream and in the spotlight of CB hockey fans.

The Council begins this Friday, November 2nd.  The new leadership structure will get underway as people begin to meet and seek God for direction on where we go as a church.  God has the answers and the plan for how this church reaches the community - the island - the world - with the Gospel.  Please pray for the council members, that they would be of one heart and mind, focused on Jesus and full of grace and mercy toward one and other.
A large team of volunteers will be here to work on the Balls Creek School Project.  25 people from South Carolina will be dry-walling, insulating and cleaning up.  Pray for a great atmosphere of team work and productivity for the team.  There will be a celebration concert and fundraiser Friday, November 9th, at the Balls Creek school to thank Jesus for all the progress on the school to this point.  Musical guest will include Sheldon Chant, Eric Angus Whyte, Lena Murphy, Soyna McVicar and Wrapped in Rona.

Grace Anniversary Weekend

Hello Friends of Grace, This weekend will be our Anniversary Celebration.  Grace has been here now 21 years and we will have some special events to celebrate God's faithfulness to us and also celebrate the hard work of Wayne MacLeod over the years as he's worked on Bible commentary and study material to send to pastors and missionaries around the world.  He has recently finished his work on a complete commentary series on every book of the Bible.  Please join us for one of our special events and come to worship with us on Sunday morning when Wayne will be sharing the word with us.
