From Graf-Martin Communications - The Christmas season is a beautiful time that reminds us of the birth of God's Son, Jesus, and the profound love, hope, and joy He brought into the world. That message doesn't change from year to year. Even amidst the challenges and uncertainties we may face, Christmas remains a symbol of Hope and a reason for Joy.
This Christmas, join us in celebrating this unique rendition of the birth of our Saviour. Experience the Nativity story like never before. AFFIRM Films introduces Journey to Bethlehem: The Musical (click here to watch the trailer - I’m sure it will put a smile on your face).
This isn't just another retelling; it’s a harmonious blend of time-honoured Christmas melodies, modern pop hits, and heartwarming humour. Witness Mary's courage, Joseph's internal struggle of love and duty, and a King's unyielding quest for power, all underpinned by faith. Designed for audiences of all ages, this live-action musical promises to be both a touching and entertaining addition to holiday classics.

Journey to Bethlehem will be released in theatres across Canada next Friday (November 10, 2023) at LANDMARK CINEMAS PEN CENTRE — ST CATHARINES, ON.

GLCHS Homestay Opportunity - GLCHS has two Japanese High School Students coming to be with us for 9 weeks starting mid-January 2024.

If you are interested in being considered as a host, please contact dwayne.williams@glchs.ca before Nov 12 2023

Thank You - Thank you so much for letting us use the building on Saturday for Wil’s memorial service and fellowship afterwards. Thanks to  Linda Smith and her team for organizing and serving the refreshments and all who graciously provided the food. Thanks also to Noel Walker for manning the sound system and taking care of the live stream of the service. It was a wonderful afternoon of reminders of the really important things in life, reminiscing, singing, tears and laughter. Just the sort of fellowship time Wil would have thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you for the beautiful flowers, cards, emails, hugs, phone calls and support you have given us and our extended family over the past month.  It has been such a blessing for us.  Even though we know this was best for him, we know he will be missed by many beyond his family.       Love Anna, Merv and the Maddeaux/Tallman families
