We will be offering a week long computer coding camp from July 24 – 28, 7pm – 8:30pm for children age 8-12, culminating with a BBQ to invite their family and friends to celebrate and show off their completed projects.We will offer this as a FREE gift for our neighbourhood.

Currently we are looking for volunteer helpers. No computer experience necessary.

Please join us for our new Adult Sunday School semester at 11:30 in room 3 and 4 upstairs. The two classes being offered are “How to Interpret the Bible by Hansel Wang” and “Revelation II” by Y. C. Ip. Please check the bulletin or website for the full course description.
“Summer Learning in Community” will start June 4th. This will be a course on prayer, using the Lord’s Prayer as our guide. In this class, teacher and author Albert Mohler shows that although the pattern of prayer Jesus provides is few in words, it is massive in meaning. The Lord’s Prayer reflects true theology and proper doxology and is a perfect guide for our prayer life. This course will be a series of video teachings, small group discussion and the practice of prayer facilitated by Pastor Joe.
As the church continue to grow, we have noticed that more and more brothers and sisters in church may share the same first and last names.

In the event that your contact information has changed (i.e. address, telephone number, or email address), please contact the church office to update the directory.
