Last night Christian educators from the Ghanaian Presbyterian and Briarwood Presbyterian Churches met to plan a Sunday School partnership, that will include visits to each others churches during Sunday morning.
Some kids learning gumboot dancing at Messy Church last Friday. Leader is Judy P., Director of Family Ministries. Theme for night was, “Thank God for feet”. Isaiah 52:7
This week we continue the journey to the cross and empty tomb with Mark 4: 21-34. Amanda Henderson, our in-ministry- year student, will preach at both services. At 11:15 a.m. the Lenten Study series continues with Rev. Dr. Kuntz in the East Room.
A huge thank you to Penny G. and team for Briarwood’s provision of the soup and service for the first Lenten Lunch this past Wednesday in support of PWS&D.
This week we remember,
Don M., who had a fall and is at the Lakeshore;
the youth group, who meet tonight;
those going to Messy Church tonight at 5:30 pm;
those involved in College and Careers next week at the Heusers;
the Parents and Tots Bible Study Wednesday morning;
the Grandparents, Parents and Friends Bible Study Wednesday afternoon.
NEXT Sunday March 4th there is only one blended service – 10:30 a.m. with lunch and AGM.
Greetings. This Sunday at both services we will celebrate the appointment of Judy Pemberton as Director of Family Ministries, with a special liturgy. We continue with the Gospel of Mark, where Jesus teaches about the true meaning of the Sabbath (2: 23-28). At 10 a.m. we celebrate Holy Communion.
It’s been an amazing week at the church with Judy’s work beginning – now visible in updates to the Nursery, and a new and ingenious place to display information on events and programs for families. The West Island Gazette has published a story on Judy’s arrival in this role. See article here.
It’s also been an amazing week at the church with the Faces We Love/Visages Aimes exhibit. I have had so many meaningful conversations with people who came to enjoy the photos. Believe or not another local paper picked up this event! The West Island Chronicle covered the opening. See article here.
This week we remember in prayer,
the Youth Group, who meet Friday night;
the Bible Study for Parents and Tots, which begins Wednesday at 10 a.m.;
the College and Careers Group, who meet Thursday night at the Heusers’.
With best wishes,
Today was the opening of the photo exhibit Faces We Love: faces from a week in the life of Briarwood. In these photos you’ll see the photographer Lauren Du Preez, clients and leaders of NOVA and CROM, members of Briarwood, and Beaconsfield City Councillor Wade Staddon. Thank you everyone for a great opening!!
