As we look towards 2022, we invite our friends to contemplate the apostle Paul’s words in Romans 8: 18-21 with us:

“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” 

Thank you to everyone who purchased gifts from the Christmas Giving catalogue. Here are the three gifts that were the most popular in Alberta:

  1. Brood of chicks
  2. Keeping girls in school
  3. Goats
