THE STORM INSIDE

a Bible Study written by Sheila Walsh


starting Wednesday,

September 12th at 9:30 am


We all face storms in life.  These storms many times devastate us and leave us torn apart and beyond recognition.  Heartbreak. Fear.  Regret.  Insecurity.  Shame.  When these emotions well up inside us, it's difficult to believe we will make it through.  We have an enemy who says we will not survive this one.


But God offers us a way through the storm.  In The Storm Inside, we'll look at the stories of eight women of the Bible who traveled the path from shame to love, from disappointment to hope, from insecurity to confidence, form despair to faith, and more.  We'll get to know them as real people and see how God came through for each of them.  We'll see the crucial choices they made and we'll lay hold of the grace that forgives what is past, gives strength for the present moment, and offers hope for the future.


Join us and Sheila in this eight-session video based Bible study of eight women of the Bible.

Secret Sister

Prayer Program

Members of the church participate in this ministry of caring and sharing with other sisters in Christ. Participants are given a ‘sister’ to pray for and encourage through sending a note or card from time to time, and remembering her on her special occasions such as her birthday, anniversary or special landmarks in her life. These ‘sisters’ are kept in secret until the end of the program year, when the ‘sister’ is revealed at a dinner outing. This is a ministry of caring & nurturing for each other as we remember our Secret Sister throughout the year. 


The mandate for this program is to have fun and get to know fellow sisters in Christ. You can be the instrument that God has placed in this person’s life to give them the encouragement they need right when they need it. Praying daily for your sister will strengthen you and the rewards can be immeasurable.

Quilting

Beautiful quilts are made and given locally to fire victims, Cantara Safe Home, and new families to Canada. Quilts are also sent to Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) which will send them to countries in need, the Mustard Seed for the homeless in Calgary, and Inn from the Cold for homeless families in Calgary.

Visitation Group

(Sunshine Group)

The purpose of this group is regular social – home visitation to shut-ins, seniors, and disabled who live at home including the villas. Coordinators set up visitors and individuals to be visited, phone visiting teams monthly to let them know who they are to visit, and coordinate other activities of the group. The visitors, working in teams of 2, will dedicate 3-4 hours per month to this group to do a social visit, and will rotate monthly to visit new people


The visiting group and coordinators meet regularly with the Pastor to share experiences and to voice concerns or problems.
