Good Morning!

Good Morning Everyone! Have you taken a look outside yet to see the MOUNDS of snow we receieved last night?.
Sorry about the 2 same posts (it shows how much my mother knows about posting a blog,haha poor mommy, she will eventually get the hang of it, I was in bed when she attempted to post it). I would delete one of them if I could but I can't, something went wrong. So we are all just going to have to read it twice (you will get a better sense of it if you read it twice anyways)

So for now I leave you with a cartoon strip, Have a great Saturday everyone and hope to see you all tomorrow for Church!

Pioneer Club=SUCCESS!

For those of you that don't know, we had a Pumpkin Party for Pioneer Clubs last night for the kids, their friends and their families. Wanna know how many kids? 57 KIDS! and that doesn't include their families and on top of that all the leaders. The kids enjoyed things such as apple bobbing, pumpkin bowling, pumpkin games, cookie decorating, crafts and a creepy science lab that Stefan and Laura put together (well done guys, heard lots of good things and creepy gross things about it). It was a great night and we also had some great costumes.


(when i saw this it made me think of my Dad. I know it is talking about the beginning of the football season and we are just coming to an end, but i still had to put it up there. Hope you all get a laugh out of it!)

Before i forget, I just wanna wish the men as they are off to a weekend of relaxing, fellowship, GREAT food in Panorama, BC. Safe drive and hope you all have fun!

A Poem For My Mommy:
It’s your birthday, Mom.
So I will raise a cheer.
For without you, wondrous person,I would not be here.

Yes, I owe it all to you, Mom.
From the time that I was small,You encouraged me in everything,
And tried not to let me fall.

Throughout my life your caring,
Brightened each and every minute.
You loved me and enriched my life,
And I’m so glad to have you in it!

Church Fellowship Night - CANCELLED

Hey hey everyone...

Do too circumstances beyond our control we have had to cancel this months Church Fellowship Night. Don't be too sad everyone - it will return in November!

Praise God!!

Wow! If you missed out on church today, you missed a hip hoppin' service! The worship today was unbelieveable! The thanksgiving decorations were done up so wonderfully and you could really feel the spirit moving in the sanctuary today! From Songs like Days of Elijah to Blessed Be Your Name to Forever to I Could Sing of Your Love Forever! It's amazing how many people really get into the music when we (the worship team) are playing it. From the stage it is an awesome thing to see people lifting their hands up to the Lord.

At the beginning of the sermon, Joe Ludlow took the "Crave" group out for the weekly crave bible study. They were watching the Chronicles of Narnia movie and picking out the christian perspectives from it. VERY CREATIVE!
Speaking of kids, was the nursery ever packed! We seem to have more and more kids under the age of 3. It's awesome! One day those kids could be the leaders of our church!
The Band also played a selection today in the service titled " Who Is He", very well done!
God works in mysterious ways and thats what is so amazing about his power and glory.
"Give Thanks to the Lord, Our God and King, HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER"

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!

Give Thanks!

As Thanksgiving is fast approaching this weekend just keep in mind that God wants us to celebrate his love. God wants us to give thanks in everything. God doesn't want this because he is greedy for praise, the Lord doesn't want it so that he will feel better about himself, he wants it because it will bless us and because it will bless the world he has made.He wants us to remember what He has done so that we will not be afraid when we are in need of help, and so that we will not grow arrogant or rude with the riches that we have. He wants us to remember and give thanks to him, and to those around us so that our lives will be full of light and hope and so our actions full of compassion and love.
This song reminds us to be greatful of what we have and be greatful/mindful of what we say and do.

Thanksgiving Time...

Well it is that time of the year where SCRUMPTIOUS meals are placed right infront of you at the dinner table and you can't do anything but eat as much as possible (cause it is soooo good). I found a few healthy tips that you could possibly use on the preparing and cooking of the dinner (and will also make you fit into your brand new pants that you bought for work the next day)

  • Don't stuff the turkey with the dressing, as it absorbs much of the fat. Bake it in a covered casserole instead.
  • Saute onions and celery in a small amount of butter/margarine, i.e., 1 tablespoon. Use chicken or turkey broth for additional moisture.
  • Roast the turkey on a rack so the fat drips away from the bird.
  • Use a fat separator for the roasting pan juices and skim off all fat before making the gravy. (like using a dry package of turkey gravy mix for added flavor and thickening)


  • Sprinkle hot vegetables with dill for flavor instead of butter.
  • Use all fruit spreads on rolls vs butter or margarine OR, SKIP THE ROLLS due to so many other "bread" items, i.e., stuffing, sweet potatoes, whipped potatoes, etc.
  • Use the 1-10 rating system during Thanksgiving dinner. Rate each food that is passed on a 1-10 scale - 1, not appealing - 10, WOW, my favorite! Eat only 9's and 10's. Pass up the rest!
  • Don't skip meals before the big meal that day. You'll be too hungry and may overeat. Treat it as a regular day - 3 meals and fruit snacks.
  • Begin the meal with a salad. You'll eat less during dinner.
  • After dinner, go for a long walk!

The Men's Group starts tonight at The church at 7:00pm

Well Hello!! It's been a while but so much has happened:

Friday Night- The youth and our youth pastors travelled the 2 and a half hours to the Salvation Army Pine Lake Camp for Youth Together 2006. Youth from Alberta came to worship God in a positive Christian environment. While back in St.Albert our new floor hockey league went very well! 18 guys/girls showed up to play and have some fun! This week the teams will be picked just pray that Dean Poffley is on your team He's AWESOME! WHOAH! We hope to see everyone out there next friday!

Saturday- Had a wonderful time at our 2nd annual golf tournament and potluck. The weather was fantastic, we had a record turn out and everyone received a prize during the potluck dinner immediately following the golf.
Special mention to the most honest golfer: Gina Joys, to the longest putt winner: Betty, and to the shortest putt: Susan Kwak

Sunday- In spite of the many who attended Youth Councils at Pine Lake Camp we enjoyed an amazing worship service and Captain Tiffany reminded us of the importance of being part of a church family, being connected to one another and committed to caring for each another.

This Week's Birthdays: Stefan's Birthday is on Tuesday October 2, and Erin Mireau is turning 19 on Thursday October 5!
