Happy 45th Pastor Lorne & Dianne

Pastor Lorne and Dianne's 45th Anniversary Cake

A special treat was enjoyed after church on Nov 3rd when the congregation was invited downstairs for cake and coffee following the morning service.

The celebration was in honor of Pastor Lorne and Dianne's 45th wedding anniversary. The room fell silent during the traditional cutting of the cake, and then cheers erupted afterwards. Congratulations!

Congratulations, Pastor Lorne and Dianne!
Praying for God's continued blessing on your marriage.

Meet Michaela from Australia

Meet Michaela

On Nov 3 we had a special visitor when Pastor Lorne, Dianne, and Noelle came to church with Michaela Franklin, who'd traveled all the way up from Bellingen, Australia to spend some time with them.

Noelle had met Michaela when she'd gone down on one of the Street Invader trips and so impressed the girl that she came up to see for herself.

Michaela, it was sure nice meeting you, and we hope you enjoyed your visit to Saskatchewan.

New COTH Sign

Life's Scary, Jesus Calm our Fear

We have a new sign! Thanks to Pastor Lorne, Doug, and Blair and his boys, Joel, Noah, & Carson, for setting up the sign at the end of October.

Pastor Lorne put up the letters for the first announcement and then discovered he didn't have enough S's to add one to the end of the word, calm, and maybe even to the word, fear.

Bonnie, up in Swan river, thought the wind blew the word, scary, over to the right. Maybe even blew the comma away. It certainly is a lesson in punctuation.

It's a real good looking sign and we want to reassure everyone that although we may affectionately call it the Scary Jesus sign, we don't consider Jesus to be scary in the slightest. Quite the opposite in fact.

So if you drove by and saw this sign, we hope you focused on the YOU ARE WELCOME HERE part.

And thanks to JJ for this nicely composed picture as well as for promoting our church on Facebook.
