November 11, Remembrance Day

This Sunday we pay tribute and honour those who have served monarch and 
country. This marks 100 years since the signing of the Armistice ending WW1. 
Many brave Canadians have given their lives over these many years protecting 
those who were not able to protect themselves. Thousands came back from these 
campaigns changed and broken. We continue to serve at home and abroad and
 pay respect to those who continue to serve as well, our Canadian Forces, RCMP 
and other law enforcement agencies and our first responders.  These are the brave 
personnel who rush in where others fear to tread and like those before them, think 
more of the lives of others than themselves. 

Our services this Sunday will be moved to 4:00 pm so that we may take part in the
Remembrance Day services being held at the Elementary School in Sundre starting
at 10:30 am but we will be having our own special service being led by Chaplain 
Tim Kirby and Captain J. Todd MacDonald. We look forward to seeing you here but 
if you cannot make it, we will broadcast the service at  live on Facebook ( or view it afterwards on our 
website (

They shall grow not old. As we that are left grow old. 
Age shall not weary them, Nor the years condemn. 
At the going down of the sun, And in the morning, 
We will remember them

Work & Witness Project for 2017

Work & Witness Project for 2017 The Canada District Advisory Board In concert with the District NMI are sponsoring this year’s District W & W project in Sundre, Alberta scheduled for July 13 to July 23 The Main Avenue Church of the Nazarene in Sundre has been an important part of this small central Alberta community for over 70 years and is located right on the major East/West road going through town. The last major addition to the church was built over 35 years ago – and a number of interior renovations and upgrades have taken place since that time. This is the focus of our next District Work and Witness project. There are three elements to all of these projects: Outreach: Rev. Sherri-Lynn Martin along with local Sundre support from Natalie MacDonald and Dorothy Reeder is working on a summer Vacation Bible School style of outreach to the community children and youth. Ministry: Revs. Jonny and Jenn Blake will head up a Ministry focus for the week which will include community Prayer walks, training events on Friendship Evangelism, engagement with the Seniors’ homes in the area among other things. Construction: Mr. Robert Laybourne (P.Eng) is helping to head up the construction work to be done on the church. There are several projects to tackle: installation of a wheel chair ramp on the outside of the building to provide easy access to the main level of the building; outside siding work; interior work: painting, flooring. There are lots of projects for all level of experienced workers. Cook/Kitchen: We will need food preparation, as well as someone to head up the kitchen team. We would certainly welcome your involvement in our upcoming District W & W endeavor in Sundre. We are targeting 10 days of work – come for all – or just a few days if that is all you can do. We will using the Harmattan Camp grounds (Family Camp side) for accommodations and meal preparation. Our goal is to make a big difference to the Church and local community. We will need lots of volunteers to meet our objective of ministry, outreach and construction. If you are interested in being part of a Ministry / Outreach / Construction /or Cook team contact Marie Southward at EVERYONE has been blessed with a SKILL, which could be used to bless others!
