On July 2nd, the Guelph Line churches will be hosting a Canada Day weekend worship service and BBQ at Brookville Park. The service begins at 10:00 am and a BBQ lunch will follow. All are welcome and there will be activities for the kids too. Bring a lawn chair and celebrate God keeping our land for 150 years.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camp Sunday – May 28, 10:00 am
May 28th is Camp Sunday! During the 10:00 am worship service we will be celebrating, highlighting and praying for camping ministry. 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.
“Understanding Grief” Video Series – Begins Monday, May 15th, 1:00 pm.
Starting Monday, May 15th at 1:00 pm, Pastor Reuben will be leading a five-week discussion group on understanding grief using a video series by Dr. Bill Webster, the founder of The Centre for the Grief Journey. If you are someone who has experienced an acute loss, I sincerely invite you to attend. My hope is that this group will be a source of encouragement and support as you seek to understand your grief. We will meet at 1:00 pm at NPC. For more information, contact Rev. Reuben St. Louis (email@example.com) or call 905-749-3993.
