In case you didn't already here the good news, God loves you so much that he gave up his one and only son, Jesus, that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life—and also the strike was averted so we're back at Sawmill Valley Public School this coming Sunday! :)
Let the games begin! We're partnering again with Upward Sports in running a dodgeball clinic at St. Mark School for kids ages 6-10. The program runs for 10 weeks and there is a cost to register—unless you're part of Arise! Let us know if you want to sign up your kids or volunteer with us in reaching our community for Jesus! You can find more info online at Upward Sports Toronto.
This coming Sunday, October 13th is Thanksgiving Sunday. After our service we'll be sharing a meal together and celebrating God's goodness in our lives. Please bring a dish to share—preferablly one that doesn't need to be reheated—and a serving spoon. This is a great opportunity to invite friends and family to join us in tasting and seeing that the LORD is good!
This Sunday we're inviting you to join us in supporting the poor in our city. We are encouraging everyone to give to The Mississauga Food Bank. $1 supplies 2 meals! $42 will feed a family of 4 for a week! Our goal is to raise enough to feed 6 families for a week. The easiest way to give is directly online. You can also bring a cheque or cash this Sunday, and we'll be sure to drop it off next week.
Thank you to all of you who signed up to be part of our volunteer teams! We are so encouraged by the response and so excited to serve along side you! Stay tuned because within the next two weeks a volunteer team leader will be contacting you to begin training and scheduling you to serve.
