Our church family paused during Sunday's service to focus on worship in heaven, as seen in Revelation 4.
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—
the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”
9 Whenever the living beings give glory and honor and thanks to the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever), 10 the twenty-four elders fall down and worship the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever). And they lay their crowns before the throne and say,
11 “You are worthy, O Lord our God,
to receive glory and honor and power.
For you created all things,
and they exist because you created what you pleased.”
It's a joy to celebrate milestones in life, and that's what Pastor Marcus did with 8 students Sunday, half moving to high school, the other half moving into the next chapter of their lives after grade 12.
There's two places to enjoy a sports event. . . from the stands or on the field. We can be spectators or participants. The good news is there are a lot of benefits when we move from the stands and get in the game!

We wanted to share about one of our young adults, Katrina Labun, who is heading out for a ten month missions adventure to Nepal!
From August 2014 to July 2015, I will be serving with the Mennonite Central Committee as Communications & Storytelling Assistant in Kathmandu, Nepal, through MCC’s SALT (Serving and Learning Together) program. Over the course of the year, I will be helping MCC Nepal and its eight local partner organizations to improve their communication strategies. These organizations are engaged in vital humanitarian work in Nepal, and with improved communications they will be better able to raise awareness of their impact and garner support for their operations. While on assignment, I will be living with a Nepalese family and attending a Nepalese church.
I am so thrilled to have this opportunity to grow in faith and cultural understanding while using my gifts to serve others. I very much appreciate your support and prayers, both as I prepare to go to Nepal and after I have arrived. In particular, please pray that I would make time to prepare myself spiritually before I leave Canada, that I would make a smooth transition to life in Nepal, that I would find real friends and places of belonging, and that God would prepare opportunities for me to help build his kingdom there. I’m expecting this to be a very challenging, exciting, and educational experience, and I can’t wait to get started!
