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 - 
 This past Sunday 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 will be left in the front corner of the auditorium for the next couple weeks. If you have any questions, please contact Angela Kanellopolous

Family Story Writing Workshop - Sandy McBay shares an announcement about a Story Writing Workshop. See attached.

New Baby - Ansley Ramey has welcomed her third boy into the world: Ace Ramey. He’s 7 lbs 10 oz. Mom and baby are doing well. See picture below.

Living Water International - As we begin our celebrations for World Water Day on March 22, we are excited to see the power of our collective action to end the water crisis. Seven hundred seventy-one million people still thirst for safe water, and millions more go unreached with the experience of God's love. But rooted in the love of Christ, we are reminded of the gospel's call to demonstrate God's love through both word and deed. As we strive to bring safe water, sanitation and hygiene, and the gospel experience to the world, we invite you to join us in this mission by donating today.

Tintern Parenting Workshop – Remember our first Parenting Workshop on Fri Mar 17 at 7pm here at the church building. It is an opportunity for fruitful conversations on important topics:

Fri Mar 17th  Answering Spiritual Questions with Your Children
How do I know if my child is ready to be baptized? What do I do when my kids ask spiritual questions, and I don’t have the answers? In this session our panel will talk about practical ways you can be a conversation partner with kids as they develop their own faith rather than attempting to be an answer machine.

Stay tuned for more details on our next workshops:
  • Fri Apr 21st  What Do I Do When My Teens and Young Adults Choose a Different Path?
  • Fri May 19th  Human Sexuality in the Public Domain

If you have any questions, please contact Noel (noel@tinternchurchofchrist.ca) for more details.
