January 19-20 - Global Social Justice Conference
The disciples' rebuke of people who brought their children to Jesus prompted Christ's reply, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." His concern reached out to the powerless, the vulnerable, and the voiceless.
The main purpose of the Global Social Justice Conference is to educate and inspire participants to respond to the biblical mandate of justice toward those to whom Christ was referring. Attending the conference will increase your awareness of critical issues faced by people in Canada and around the world and illustrate ways the local church can effectively respond to these needs. Get more info and register here.

We thank You for bringing us into this new year, and we pray that in 2018 our hearts would be fully attentive to what You have to say to us.
Father, this year we ask that You would help us to grow in our faith and our walk with You. We pray that Your Spirit would strengthen us in our gifts, and that as we use them, they would bear fruit for Your glory.
We pray for Pastors Shawn and Dan who will be speaking to us this month. Empower them through Your Spirit to bring us into the presence of Jesus. And help us to listen carefully so that we hear what You are saying and can put it into practice.
Jesus, we pray that 2018 would be a year marked by growth, faith, and action. Help us to pay careful attention to You so that we do not drift away.
In Your Name we pray, amen.
