Day Camps

Day Camps will be held from July 9 -13, 2018 for children from pre-kindergarten (age 4) to those finishing Grade 6 (age 12). The cost is $25 per child or $35.00 per family. If you are interested in sponsoring a child or a family, please speak to Rev. Belle. We are still looking for billets for 3 persons from the Crosstalk Ministries’ travelling team. We are also looking for helpers from age 12 upwards. Our prayer is that at the end every child will say – “Accepted Jesus Going to heaven”


God’s Chosen Vessels

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. – 2 Corinthians 4:7

… But God in His great wisdom has chosen to use people to reach people. You can hardly find a story in the New Testament where an individual comes to faith apart from the involvement of another person. Yes, it was done through the Holy Spirit. But God worked through a person to bring someone to faith. And today, in the same way, God wants to use us. Copyright © 2017 by Harvest Ministries

Here’s something to think about.
God wants to use you. Will you let Him? Will you resist, or will you answer the call? Peter reminds us, ‘But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.’

Prayer for Today
Lord God of the nations, You have revealed Your will to all people and promised us Your saving help.

Amen.
