As a part of our celebration of Christmas, we will begin a new series of messages "For Unto Us A Child is Born"... based upon Isaiah 9:6 "For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on His shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."
In this we will look at the four different titles of Jesus found in that verse. Be sure to attend, you won't want to miss a week as these four messages fit well together. Our series will conclude with one additional message on December 27, where we will look at... thanking God for the greatest Christmas gift ever - Jesus!
At the end of October the MBA held their annual meetings. As one who attended, I was encouraged by the reports we received. Of note, I was particularly pleased with the emphasis that's being placed upon missions; both locally and provincially. There are two missions that I would like to highlight. Please pray for the new outreach program at Mission Baptist in Winnipeg; "West-End Alive." This exciting ministry is witnessing new growth in their church as they are effectively reaching out to their neighborhood.
Additionally, the MBA is partnering with "Pathway Camp Ministries" in "providing youth programs in Aboriginal communities of Manitoba". Their work is exciting, and a few of our churches serve this ministry annually. We can be a part too. Contact Pastor Jay for further details.
