Elder Affirmation Bible - Recently we gave each of the elders a new Bible and you are all invited to sign your name in each. In addition, you are welcome to write in you elder’s specific Bible a specific verse that is your family verse, or your verse of the year, or a meaningful verse to you or your family. You are invited to highlight that verse in your elder’s Bible with your name beside it. The bibles are in the front corner of the auditorium. If you have any questions, please contact Angela Kanellopolous

We're going to talk about  Answering Spiritual Questions with Your Children. Please reach out to Noel and let him know if you are interested in childcare being available on site. We have a couple of teen/pre-teen girls who would be willing to watch kids during our program on Friday but I need to let them know before Friday. 

The Chosen
- Starting in April we will start watching Season 3. Upcoming episodes will be listed in the "Upcoming Events" section of the eBulletin. Sunday April 2 @ 4pm is Episode 1 - The Homecoming (The Sermon on the Mount: various elements are brought to life with incredible clarity as many of the characters show the depth of meaning of Jesus's message). 

Kids' Worship - Starting on Sunday, April 2nd, we will be starting Kids' Worship! Kids' Worship will be the first Sunday of every month. Kids grades 5 and under will be dismissed before the sermon begins and stay in Kids' Worship through the end of the service and then be dismissed to their classes. It is Young Adult led and the kids will be worshipping, doing an activity, and learning. Contact Megan for more information.

Celebration of Spring Potluck - We are looking forward to celebrating Easter on Sunday April 16 (the Sunday after Easter) following morning worship. More information will follow. 

Micah 6 Mission Trip - Signups for the Micah 6 trip (April 27 - 30) are due on March 19th (this Sunday!!). Sign up by letting Megan know or on the sheet on the bulletin board by the bathrooms. Trip cost is $50 and is open to anyone.

World Water Day - On March 22, it's World Water Day, and we're taking action to demonstrate Christ's love and end the global water crisis. With your help, we can make an even greater impact!

The statistics are staggering: 771 million people still thirst for safe water, and millions more go unreached with the gospel of Jesus Christ. People suffer daily in the 17 countries we work in across the globe. That's why we need everyone rooted as one to end this crisis.

With just one week until World Water Day, we need your help now more than ever. Together, we can quench more thirst, help more churches thrive, heal the sick, empower more women and children, and unite more people through Christ's love.

The foundations of our work are strong, and through our global Christian community, we can make them even stronger. Join us this World Water Day and take root in our efforts to make a difference. Please donate today.

We are so grateful for your support to bring water, for life, in Jesus' name to the world!  – Your friends at Living Water International

Village of Hope - Attached you will find a letter from Village of Hope.

Niagara Life Centre - We get it. March can be frustrating. Yet this time of year is a perfect message for us to hold on and never give up because spring will come and life will get warmer.

Just like March our lives are often a mix of good and bad. Sometimes things are going great and we feel like we’re thriving, and other times we are struggling and can’t seem to catch a break. It’s hard to be grateful when life’s a mess. It’s easy to despair when we can’t see the end of the the pain…

Whatever you may be going through remember - there will always come a springtime. Life will get better and we are here to walk with you through it. That’s what NLC is all about, offering Help, Hope, and Healing to our community.

March is a hard time, but it’s also a beautiful time.
A beautiful reminder of the life God’s brings in springtime.

We are here to help
