Parkade E-News
The church offices will be closed on November 25 and November 26.
Have a very happy Thanksgiving.

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." Col 3:15-17

“A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him..." - Luke 3:4
This Sunday is the first Sunday in Advent. During the season of Advent, Pastor Chris will preach a sermon series about the crying voice in the wilderness that calls us make straight the paths and prepare the way for the coming of the Lord. This Sunday we will be in Isaiah 40:1-11. In the upcoming Sundays we will focus on the role of John the Baptist in preparing way for Jesus' ministry.
