Mud Season - With "spring" weather arriving, the parking lot is muddy! Please make sure to wipe off your shoes when you enter the building. Thank-you.

Elder Affirmation Bible - If you plan to sign or write in the Bibles for the elders please do so this Sunday so that the Bibles can be given to the elders. The Bibles are in the front corner of the auditorium. If you have any questions, please contact Angela Kanellopolous.

AV Team - Want to join our AV Team. We will be doing a training session after Bible study on Wednesday April 5 at 8 pm sharp. Contact Margaret or Noel if you are interested. 

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. 

Ruth Zimmerman - Ruth has safely arrived back in Lae, Papua New Guinea. Her report is attached below. A printed copy will be posted on the Missions' bulletin board.

Masumbuko's - Through the kindness of the Great Lakes High School the Masumbuko family has had an affordable house on campus for two years as they reunited in Canada. At this time the school is growing, and needs the space for new
staff. We rejoice with the good news for the school's enrollment, but it means the Masumbukos will not be able to renew their lease this summer. They are ideally looking for three bedrooms in the Jacob Beam catchment. If you are aware of anyone who has any long term accommodation in the general area of Beamsville for a family of five available, please let Roger Perry or Geoff Taylor know. We are praying that God will provide a suitable place for the family.
