Welcome: We extend a very warm welcome to everyone who has joined with us this morning for a very special Remembrance Day Service when we seek to honor our veterans and those who continue to serve this great country of ours. This service is a time of reflection and gratitude to the brave men and women who gave sacrificially to secure the freedom and liberty we are blessed to have today. We wish to extend a very special welcome to all our veterans and their family members, those currently serving in the military and to Staff Sergeant Mark MacDonald, Halifax Regional Police, Captain James Stymiest, Halifax Regional Fire Service and to silver cross mother, Danita Curwin

 

Merry Christmas: On Sunday evening Dec 2, 2018, we will be presenting the “Sights and Sounds of Christmas”. We invite you to join us for this very special evening as we enjoy the start to the Christmas season together as a church family. We have many wonderful sights and sounds planned for the whole family to enjoy upstairs and then to the lower level to enjoy some special tastes of the Christmas season at a stand-up reception. Tickets are only $10 each and are now on sale at the Info Center until Nov 25 or while supplies last. Be sure to get yours today!
