Hi from the “Old Guy”
As a fellow member in the pew at Grace I’m taking this opportunity to invite you to join me in supporting the give25 campaign of our Concordia Lutheran Seminary. The plan is simple and spelled out in the paragraphs that follow.
9907 114 St Edmonton, AB
Parking is available at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home on Sunday mornings. Please park on the south end of the large east parking lot unless otherwise posted. Our thanks to Connelly McKinley for the privilege of using their parking lot.
In faithfulness to God's word (Acts 1:8), the mission of Grace Lutheran Church is "To proclaim in a warm caring atmosphere the good news of God's love and forgiveness in Christ to the people of our congregation, our community and the world."
We believe that there is only one true God, Who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Father is the creator of everything that exists. The Son is Jesus the Savior. The Holy Spirit inspired the entire Bible. It is the errorless Word of God that brings God's message of love and hope for all people. We accept that Scripture is accurately and faithfully interpreted in the documents contained in the Book of Concord.
“...not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:11-13 ESV)
The Apostle Paul claimed to have discovered the secret of being “content in all circumstances,” but for me it’s a stretch. I struggle to find gratitude in my heart when September snowstorms cut a short summer even shorter.
Trevor’s Ministry Update:
August 14. 2018
Dear friends and supporters,
I'm now back in the Philippines teaching at Faith Academy. School started back up August 2nd. This year I'm teaching Grade 11 Bible (Doctrine & Christian Living) and Grade 12 Bible (Philosophy & Theology). It's fun to be teaching students again. So far classes have been going really well. I have a lot of grade 11 students this year (74!) but they're good class and I've enjoyed teaching them so far. It's also great to spend more time with my grade 12 students. Next week, is High School Retreat, when we spend three days at a nearby retreat center, bonding, playing games and worshiping God together.
Please help the ALTAR GUILD
