December 3, 2017 Bulletin

  Sunday Spotlight

We are glad to have you with us today!

We hope three words describe your experience: engaging, inspiring, and helpful.

Our worship will include:

  • Joy To The World
  • He Shall Reign Forevermore
  • Angels We Have Heard On High
  • Joy Of The Lord
  • Midnight Clear

 

 

Sermon series  "Christmas Presence".

Children SK to Grade 8 are invited to come downstairs at the start of the service for Christmas Musical Practice.

Today at 4:00 pm is the Christmas Light Memorial Service in the Sanctuary.

 

 

  We welcome you to enjoy an extension of the worship this morning by following us through Spotify:

New With Us? 

During our service you can expect:

  • Worship through singing (3-5 songs).
  • Greet one another with a handshake or warm smile.
  • SK-Gr.2: released from service after worship down to room 108.
  • Worship through prayer & Bible teaching from one of our pastors.
  • Worship through giving: we are called to do so in scripture but it is also a way of saying, "We love our church and we want to support it financially!" However, you should feel no pressure to give as our guest today.

A typical service at Wainfleet BIC lasts about 75 minutes.

Have children with you? We offer care from trained volunteers:

  • Nursery 0-3: just off the main lobby, east of the auditorium.
  • Age 3 - JK: downstairs in room 110.
  • SK - Gr.2: released from service down to room 108.

If you have any questions:

  • Please stop by the Welcome Centre and our volunteers will be happy to assist you.

Giving Wall

  • Join in our Christmas Project to supply the Rose City Kids with a devotional book. The goal is 300 devotionals. Cost is $15 each. When you pay for a devotional you can flip over a card that will then say 'sold'. Then you can take a bookmark to write a personal note or poem or bible verse to be placed in the devotional. Cash, cheque or debit/credit are all accepted. You'll see the red 'Giving Wall' in the lobby beside the sanctuary doors.
