First Service of the New Year

Visits: 4


Some scripture that I hope will strengthen your faith and uplift you at this time.

Psalm 145:

8 The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.

9 The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made

10 All your works praise you, Lord; your faithful people extol you.

11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might,

12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

13b The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.

14 The Lord upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.

17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does.

18 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

Update On Chapel Fire Situation

We have received a report on the contents and there replacement process. The report contains 3 options.

Option 1. Is for $106,655.94 It involves purchasing replacement items and submitting bills as the items are purchased for reimbursement.

Option 2. Is for $58,979.47 No bills to submit and we can choose to do nothing just take the money

Option 3. Is for $75,000.00 Allows us to replace things as we need. No requirement to send any invoices or receipts. Pays us the cash and we replace our contents at our leisure.

A number of the men will be meeting shortly to discuss these options to see what would be the best for us.

If you have any questions please call me (Jack) 250-510-4299 or we can talk on Sunday.

Health and Prayers

  • Mike Millard: Mike is progressing well, doing all the necessary exercises and only finds the knee gets a little sore and swollen by the end of the day.
  • Anne Suais: This report is not so good. Anne is in quite a bit of pain and finds her mobility is difficult. Her daughter is helping her with such things as showers and shopping and Barb and I check on her and deal with anything the daughter is unable to take care of.
  • Barb Trowbridge: Very little change there. Barb is still in Hospital and the doctor won’t let her leave until and unless her strength comes back.
  • John Stegeman: John was in hospital for a bit and has a leaking Aorta valve. He is now at home under the watchful eye of Christa and has meds to deal with the situation. Not much else is available.
  • Terry And Lois: Again not much to report. Slow progress but there is gradual improvement with Terry’s physical well being.
  • Robyn Mckenzie: Again no real change and nothing new to report. The key to his situation is physical therapy
  • Sherilyn Vandine: Her shingles are clearing up nicely, still feels a little tired but for all intents and purposes everything is moving in the right direction.
  • Elinor Bell: In very good spirits. Barb visited her today and she really seemed to appreciate the visit. If you would like to visit Elinor give her a heads up call. Elinor is faithfully doing her exercises and getting help with showers on a regular basis.
  • Hilda de Haan’s family as they continue to deal with the loss of Hilda. If you would like a paper copy of the service we have a couple extras and will bring them on Sunday
  • Coastal Missions after the passing of Frank Getman, brother of Roy Getman and husband of Petunia
  • Linda Sked and her loss of Don.

Please remember these folks as the days can be quite difficult sometimes.

So that’s it for this week. Lord willing we will see some of you on Sunday up Gibbons road. Remember the rubber boots.
