Offering Schedule for November 2018

November 4th A.M. – World Renew – World Hunger: World Renew invites you to participate in this year's World Hunger Campaign! In communities where poverty is prevalent, men, women, and children often struggle to grow enough food, lack access to clean water, fight to rebuild after a disaster, and experience injustice. Together with your congregation, World Renew can equip those in need with the skills and knowledge required to move beyond these barriers. By creating stability, those facing hunger and poverty can experience Uzima — a sense of wholeness — for themselves, their family, and community. During the autumn World Hunger Campaign, culminating on World Hunger Sunday, please give generously of your time, prayers, talents, and financial gifts to bless others. World Renew will use your gifts to combat poverty, disaster, and injustice around the world in Jesus’ name.

P.M. – CRC Ministry to Seafarers: The Ministry to Seafarers (M2S) is dedicated to caring for the needs of seafarers visiting the Port of Montreal. Our mission is to share Jesus' love by being an advocate for seafarers, and providing them a safe, relaxing place that they can call their home-away-from-home.  The Ministry to Seafarers (M2S) is located in the Old Port of Montreal and is an outreach mission of the Christian Reformed Church carried out by chaplains. Chaplains make on board visits on various ships and conduct chapel services at the centre. They reach out to the crews and officers of these ships bringing them the gospel (52 different Bible language versions of the “Jesus” video). This ministry reaches out to the lost and gives them hope that they bring back to their native lands.


November 18th A.M. – The Bible League of Canada provides Scriptures and training worldwide, so people will be brought into relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church… because the world needs the Living Word of God more than anything else!  Change, real change, happens from the inside out.  When people come into a relationship with Jesus, they are transformed by the power of God’s Spirit.  The Holy Spirit inspires new Christians to adopt and apply Biblical values to address their needs.  Family, friends, whole communities experience this transformation!  Adult Bible-based literacy, Church planter training, Children’s Ministry Programs and support for persecuted Christians are the programs we use to deliver the Living Word of God in 43 countries.  By God’s grace, the eternal Living Word impacts generations to come.  THANK YOU for your support.
