BIBLE STUDIES

God has a divine calling on each of our lives that He desires and intends for us to live out. Come and join us every Tuesday morning to learn more about that anointing. This study is an open study where you can join in at any time of the year as each lesson is specific for that day's teaching. Meet with other women of all ages for a time of worship, teaching, discussion, prayer, fellowship and food. Nursery care is available upon request at no charge. Be sure to invite a friend to join you and share the blessing! We are offering 2 studies this year.

"Guess Who's Coming to Dinner"

Date:    Saturday, December 1st

Time:   5:00 - 8:30 pm

Place:   Designated host homes

Cost:    $10.00


Join in the fun and fellowship of signing up to go to a host home for dinner. The only catch is you don't know whose home you are going to!

And your host has no idea who she will be hosting until you arrive at her door! Sign-up sheets will be available Sunday, November 4th - 25th. We want to be sensitive to any dietary/pet allergies, as well as if stairs are a concern, and you can indicate this on the sign-up sheets.


There will be NO payment accepted after November 25th due to the preparations involved. Dinner guests are to arrive at the church by 5 pm to receive directions to the home they will be going to. If you would like to carpool to your host's home, you are welcome to leave your car in the church parking lot. This is a wonderful opportunity to invite a friend or neighbour to join you. Be sure to tell us how you enjoyed the evening!

Electives include

:    Zumba

Coffee Time and Lunch are provided.


Did you know many consider February to be the longest and for some, 

most depressing month of the year? We're sick of the cold and snow and for

those who can't get out to enjoy winter activities, they feel very 'cooped up'.


But we have a remedy for that! Join us for our Women's Half Day Apart. We'll

begin the morning over coffee and warm croissants from the oven with homemade

jam. Enjoy a time of worship and hear what the Lord has laid on Michelle Mercer's

heart for us to receive - 'for such a time as this'. 3 electives are being offered and 

you can pick 2 to attend. This is a casual, comfortable dress day - especially for 

those who want to be a part of the Zumba elective! Lunch will include home made

soups and deli sandwiches with something 'sweet' to round off the meal!

And, of course, there will be a draw for prizes!


Sign-up sheets will be available at the Information and Courtesy Desks beginning 

January 20th- February 3rd. Again it is intended to give you an opportunity to invite 

a friend/neighbour to join you and experience the love of Jesus in a non-threatening 

environment. We look forward to seeing you there!


"Mother's Day English Tea"


Date:     Saturday, May 4th, 2019

Time:    12:00 - 2:00 pm

Place:    Fellowship Hall

Cost:    $25.00/mom and daughter. (additional daughters are $10.00 ea.)

            (daughters must be 10 yrs. of age up)

Special Feature: Jennifer Weston - "Steeped Tea"

Speakers:   a family of 3 generations sharing about the spiritual heritage God has 

                   blessed them with and that we can cultivate in our lives - 'for such a 

                   time as this'.


One of the most precious gifts God has given us is our mother! And we want to honor

all mothers by having a mother/daughter English tea. Enjoy delectable finger sandwiches,

scones with clotted cream and jam and a wonderful selection of sweets. And all will be

topped off with a selection of specialty teas from Steeped Tea.


Give your Mom a Mother's Day gift of spending time together. For some of us who no 

longer have our Moms to honor and pamper in this way, it is the perfect opportunity to 

'adopt' a mom or daughter to join you. Let's not forget there are many among us and in 

our community who are single moms, widowed or who have daughters, but they live too 

far away to be able to attend. What a special way to honour them and let them know they 

are valued and not forgotten!


So save the dates for all of these important events - Get Acquainted Coffees, Bible 

Studies and Quarterly Outreaches! You'll be glad you did! 


We look forward to meeting you at 'The River'!
