Week of Guided Prayer – Oct. 15-21

Nassagaweya Presbyterian, St. John’s Anglican, St. David’s Presbyterian and Ebenezer United are hosting a week of guided prayer for the week of October 15th – 21st. “Week of Guided Prayer” is a retreat in the midst of daily life with the purpose of focusing our attention on God’s presence in our lives.

The week begins with opening worship on Sunday, October 15th at 2:00 pm. Participants are given instructions for the week and the daily scripture material for prayer based upon the theme “Woven with God’s Love”. Monday to Friday, participants covenant to pray 30 minutes privately each day, and to meet with a “Companion” 30 minutes daily to be guided in prayer experience. Companions support participants by seeking to keep them attentive to God’s leading, and guiding them through questions, suggestions and shared experiences. The week is then closed with worship on Saturday, October 21st at 10:00 am celebrating how and where God has touched us through the week.

New Members – June 11

On June 11th (Anniversary Sunday), NPC will be receiving those who wish to become new members of the congregation. One question that you would likely have upon being asked if you would like to be a member is “What does it mean to be a member?” To help answer this question, you are invited to read a short article from the Presbyterian Record about this very topic. If you’d like more information on membership, please email Reuben at reuben.stlouis@gmail.com.

We will be welcoming some special guests this Sunday from Rocky Ridge Ranch, Liebenzell Mission and Camp Kintail and we will be hearing about their summer programs. You will get a sneak peak at this year’s VBC theme and we will sing some of the favourite camp songs from past VBCs. There will also be an opportunity to support NPC’s camping ministry. Donations will go towards sending children to camp and toward the running of our various camp programs. We hope you can attend and celebrate the joy and love of camp.
