Restoring Health: body, mind and spirit

Join us this morning

I’m happy to announce that we’re having Church@Church this Sunday. This week we’re remember the birth of John the Baptist, the last of the great Old Testament prophets. John the Baptizer had much to say about who Jesus is. We’ll be contemplating John’s words this week.
This Sunday we’re also celebrating Fathers’ Day. For all of us who have ever had a father—we are grateful. Without our fathers, we would not be here. And of course we think of the greatest Father anyone could have—our Heavenly Father. (And for all the males who come to church this Sunday, there’ll be a present for you!)

So come, join us and help celebrate the history of John the Baptist. Here’s the announcement:

Church @ Church this Feast of the Birth of John the Baptist and Fathers’ Day—the 19th June at 10:00am

In case you missed it, you can find the service from last week (our Vision Sunday Service) by clicking here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW8PYMkkWhU

Important Dates:
July 3rd Instructional Eucharist—a service explaining in detail all the parts of an Anglican service. Everyone is welcome
August 28th, after church, the World Bocce Tournament held at the Klenner’s home. Everyone welcome.

And one special request: the Elders at All Saints are looking for an accountant to help with our bookkeeping. If you know of someone who might be interested, please let me know. Thank you.

If you have any further questions about these events, or anything else for that matter, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you Church.
Stay vigilant and prayerful.
Love each other deeply and keep Jesus at the very centre of everything you do.
Blessings on all you do.

The peace of our Lord,

Peter Klenner
Bishop and Pastor
All Saints Community Church

In the last number of years, I have had the opportunity to speak at conferences and retreats in Honduras, Rwanda, Uganda, Washington State, BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland, and Ontario.
