Restoring Health: body, mind and spirit

Join us for Worship

We thank God that we celebrated church again this morning. Praise the Lord. As you prepare for Church, may I encourage you to reflect on your relationship with Jesus. Are you still in love with Him?; do you care more about Jesus than anything else in the world?; are you living a life of obedience to Jesus?; are you willing to do what He asks of you?

In the service, we heard how the Apostle Paul prayed for the Ephesians—and by extension—how the Apostle prayed for us too! We sure need prayer. Amen?

Can I also remind you to continue to participate in community. We are part of the Body of Christ and that means we belong to each other, even if we don’t get to see each other that often at the moment. You are important to us! Let’s make an effort to be together.

I’m glad to announce that we had church again (Sunday the 17th January).

This is a wonderful time to fellowship together.

You can find the Service by clicking HERE.

A couple of quick reminders:

1. Please continue to pray for and give to our “Project Oikos.” We have now raised over $330,000 and we have $575,000 in pledged loans—praise the Lord. Of course, if you or someone you know, would like to help support this ministry we would be delighted to receive your gifts. In order not to default on our contract we need to raise another $500,000 by March 31st.

2. And heads up!—today is “Pizza Lunch Sunday.” We’re having Pizza lunch immediately after the service at 12:30pm. Come and join us for Pizza lunch. C’mon Church Family, let’s make an effort to be with our brothers and sisters.

Here’s the Zoom invite:

Topic: All Saints Pizza Lunch

Time: Jan 17, 2021 12:30 PM Vancouver

Meeting ID: 604 209 5570

(We’ve enable “waiting room” so no password is required)

Of course, if you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call me.

See you at church.

The peace of our Lord,

Bishop Peter (and Jenny) Klenner

Join us today in worship

This morning we celebrated the last Sunday in the calendar year. What a year it’s been. We continue to pray for you every week.

I’m glad to announce that we had church again this morning (Sunday the 27th December).

You’ll see a picture of a camel train in our opening slides—the wise men are on their way!

A couple of quick reminders:

1. Please continue to pray for and give to our “Project Oikos.” We have now raised nearly $300,000—praise the Lord.

2. If you would like to let others know about Project Oikos on Facebook, please feel free to do so. If you would like us to send you a template for your Facebook page, let me know. We’ll send one to you right away.

3. Finally, one of the options we’re considering—in order to buy us some time for fundraising in the new year—is to put together a “friendly” mortgage. Our goal will be to find 10 people who can each lend All Saints Church $200,000 for about 12 months. That way we can buy the building (our deadline is January 15th, 2021), and take some time to continue our fundraising strategies into the new year. If you’re in a position to help with a friendly loan, please let me know. (Our corporate law firm can help set up the details.)

Of course, if you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call me.

See you at church.

The peace of our Lord,

Bishop Peter (and Jenny) Klenner

The Secret of Contentment

I pray you’ve been safe and healthy this week. I’m glad to announce that we had church again this morning (Sunday the 8th November). We conducted a Remembrance Day Service. It is our honour and privilege to bring you this service.
The theme from Philippians 4 is “The Secret of Contentment’.

  1. Please continue to pray for our Project Oikos. Maybe you might consider being an advocate for our fundraising and introduce “Project Oikos” to others. (If you need more booklets, don’t hesitate to let me know.
    See you at church.
    In Him,
    Bishop Peter (and Jenny) Klenner
