Oct. 30/16, text: John 8:31-36, theme: “Free”
I’d guess that when most of us hear that something is free we, almost routinely, assume it can’t be worth much. After all, we live in a society that readily believes you get what you pay for. There are no free rides. All those wonderful discounts and bonus options offered when you buy a new car - well - you’ve just got to know they’re buried somewhere in the price. Should any promised freebee actually be worth something - then we’re inclined to ask, “So what’s the catch?” There has to be a catch hidden somewhere in the fine print. Overall, we’re skeptical by nature. When something’s too good to be true it’s likely not true.Read More
Have you ever moved to a new place, and been greeted by a friendly neighbour? Perhaps it was something official, like a “Welcome Wagon” representative with a basket of gifts or maybe it was a simple “hello” from someone living across the hall. First impressions are powerful, and so is being part of the welcoming committee.
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.
Faces of Grace
We have a new and updated picture wall at Grace! The only catch is that you need to bring your own picture :) It doesn't have to be anything fancy, but please bring in a 4x6 picture of you and your family (labelled with everyone’s names) and add it to our wall. Thanks for your support!
We have a committee of people working on getting a new sign to replace the outdated one on the church lawn. It is not as simple a job as one might think! First we have to decide on what information should be on the sign. Then decisions about design and size and materials. After that we look for a company to help us in the manufacturing of something beautiful! Rest assured, the process is underway and the new sign will be beautiful, up to date and easy to read for our neighbours!
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.
I am excited to announce that I have a departure date: January 5th! After a brief layover in Vancouver, I will be arriving in Manila very early on January 7th. It was nice that I was able to spend Christmas in Edmonton with my family before leaving.

Update from the PPC (Adm. Assist. Job Opportunity; Client Services Coordinator Job Opportunity and Baby Bottle Campaign 2017)
Our Sunday School has chosen the B.C. Mission Boat Society to sponsor with our Sunday School offerings. What does the BC Mission Boat Society do?
The Rock is thankful for the many volunteers that come each week to live the gospel into the lives of our guests through preparation, serving, and cleanup at the Community Breakfasts and we could use several more. Volunteers usually come about 6 or 6:30 am but if that's too early we could have a few coming at 8 am to finish serving and then help cleanup. Call the office weekdays at 780-426-1122. We are open from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm.
