General Assembly and Life Direction Weekend

Hello everyone, I hope you are weathering the strange weather, snow, sun, wind, -14, +8... we must be in Cape Breton.

Coming up this Monday, Jan. 28th at 7:00 pm we will be having the Annual General Meeting at Grace.  Please come as we seek direction for our church for the future and talk about what has happened in the past year.  Let your encouragements, comments and request be heard.  Galatians 6:2, carry each other's burdens and fulfill the law of Christ.  Let's join together to see how we fit into this puzzle of how to run a church together as the family of God. 

Please consider coming to this year's Life Direction Weekend.  As in the past this weekend conference is aimed at encouraging young adults, but this year we will be broader in our scope as there will be discussions on a recent study done in Canada called Hemorrhaging Faith.  If you are concerned with the exodus of young adults from many churches, there will be two discussion sessions lead by Pastor David Sawler on why this trend is happening, where they are going and how the church can respond.  The keynote speaker this year is Ian Green.  Ian has spent more than two decades of his life finding and creating innovative paths for the people of Europe to receive love, hope and a future through Jesus Christ. His relentless passion has seen over 130 churches planted and 7000 leaders systematically trained.  We have lots to learn from him.  Click the poster on the right to register.  Go to the Facebook page for updates and schedule.

Please talk to one of the council leaders if the lord has put on your heart a specific small group/ leadership teams where he wants you to serve.
Council Leaders are:
Dave McKenna:
Lloyd Johnston
Winston MacEachern
Doug Beane
Bibiana MacLeod
