Join us for worship lead by the Rev. Dr. Robert “Bob” Paul on Sunday October 25, 2015. Recently appointed as the Dean of St. Andrew’s Hall, Bob comes to us with many years of pastoral experience in Washington and California and his word to us will surely inspire and teach.
We’ve posted a bunch more photos over on Facebook so find us and like us there. Tentatively scheduled to be in the new building by end of November or start of December. Official opening in February 2016. Meanwhile, take a look at what we are moving into and check out who we are at our old home – 2597 Bourquin Cr. East.
CARES Counselling provides faithful, professional, and affordable help to people struggling with various psychological challenges. We support this ministry and a small group are running the race and others are supporting the runners at a water station. Feel free to contact us for more information.
Thanks be to God for an indescribable gift.
There are so many things to be thankful for in this God-given world – beauty of the earth, glory of the skies, human love, to name a few.
But there is one gift which can only be described as indescribable – God’s gift to us of his Son, Jesus Christ. Through Jesus we receive forgiveness, peace with God, life to the full, and hope for the future.
This Thanksgiving, receive … and give thanks.
(The churches of Abbotsford, giving thanks together!)
Calvin Presbyterian Church welcomes Dr. Sarah Stewart-Kroeker to preach. Sarah is holds a post doctoral fellowship at UBC where she spends her time writing and thinking about St. Augustine and the Psalms. When not thinking deep thoughts she is part a mother of two and a rock star alongside husband Tom Wilson in The Wilson Family Forgery. Kid Connect is happening this week and Rev. Ron Tiessen will officiate World Communion Sunday. Come to worship expecting to be fed spiritually and physically.
We try to worship, live, and serve. A dedicated group of Calvin folks including 5 young people recently served at the Abbotsford Food Bank sorting out food. They learned that the Food Bank could really use rice, canned vegetables, beans, and soup because they get far too much non-essential foods (things like cake mixes). Calvin Presbyterian collects food for the Food Bank every time we do communion because our worship is tied to our service. Next communion is this Sunday, October 4 2015 and is World Communion Sunday. Can we top the 17 peanut butters we got last time?
We are changing our website over to a new format. We ask for your patience as we get the kinks ironed out. If you have questions or comments, feel free to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks.
Come see the new church building site.
Wonder what that building new building on the Mission highway is? You can find out this coming weekend.
March 14 and 15
Corner of Hazelwood and Highway 11
Park at the north end and muster at the tents (provided by The Tent Guys) near the office. This is still a construction site so wear practical foot wear.
There are a lot of things that divide us. As Christians we notice this. People outside of the church notice as well.
Churches the world over set aside this week to express unity around the only thing that can unify us – God. As the theme passage for this year reminds us, the only thing that can bring groups divided together is worshiping one God “spirit and truth” (John 4:23).
On Wednesday, January 21st Calvin hosts the Abbotsford community in a service of worship. Come for 12:15, worship and then stay for a light lunch.
