MNO Lay Academy of Preaching
Have you been asked to prepare a sermon and been reluctant because you did not know how to begin? Have you preached before but wonder if you have anything fresh to say? Your MNO Synod has created a series of courses to help you plan for specific services from Thanksgiving to Advent 2. Courses are taught on-line and work step by step over four weeks for specific Sundays. You only work on the lesson for the Sunday you are assigned. Your Pastor has specific information about class times and dates, as well as an orientation to on-line learning. Register now. Classes begin in two weeks! You can pick up a brochure on the bulletin board in the entry.

September Special Appeal: Jocelyn House
Blessing of the Beasts
On October 2 during worship we will be celebrating the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Francis had a spirit of gratitude for all of God’s creation! We too give thanks, especially for our beloved pets. We invite you to bring a photograph of your pet and mount it on the photoboard before worship. A special blessing for our beloved “beasts” will be offered during the service.
Come for Lunch!
We are having a fundraising lunch in support of the Urban following worship on Sunday, October 2. The Manitoba Pork Community Barbeque team will be providing their delicious Pork on a Bun sandwich! Our special guest speaker at the luncheon will be Rhonda Gorham, the new Ministry Manager of the Urban. Tickets for the lunch (to cover the costs) will be $5 per person. But this is a Fundraiser! Donations are very much appreciated. Offering envelopes will be available and receipts will be provided for donations of $20 or more. Come join us!
