A Change in Leadership

We are very sad to be saying good-bye to our beloved pastors and friends... Captains Les & Tiffany Marshall, Courtney and Adam. They will be taking up new ministries in Winnipeg as the Divisional Secretaries for Public Relations and Development for Manitoba & the Northwest Ontario Division.

We are excited to be welcoming Captains Jason & Gaye King and their daughter Kianna, coming to us from Hanover, Ontario. Our church phone is ringing off the hook with commendations for this young family & their love of people & passion for ministry.

Let's keep both of these families and both congregation-families in our prayers during this time of transition!

We also have news that our Cadets Jon and Tracy Savage have been appointed to The Salvation Army in Cranbrook, BC for their Summer Assignment. This appointment is a part of their Training College experience.

Annual Officer Personnel Change

Tomorrow morning Salvation Army Officers across the Canada & Bermuda Territory will recieve official word that they will be moving to a new appointment. Please ensure that you add all officers and their families to your prayer list. As I am sure you can imagine, this is a very emotional and challenging time of year for everyone involved (for the officers and their families and also for the people of the appointments in which they currently minister to).

In the move process always remember that God is in control and has a plan for each ministry unit including the units that will be in transition in the coming months.

Sunday Worship - April 20

In spite of the cold weather and snow outside, inside the worship on Sunday was a-blazing.

WOW - what a blessing it was to have the Edmonton Temple Worship team with us as we worshipped not as individual Corps but as fellow believers in Christ.

Special thanks to Edmonton Temple for parting with many of their key worship leaders so that they could come and lead worship here in St Albert.

"To God Be The Glory Great Things He Hath Done" and continues to do........

This Weekend

Calling one and all !

This coming Sunday we have the privelege of hosting the Edmonton Temple Worship team. Not only will they be leading the service in worship but they will also be bringing forth the message.

The service starts at 11:am - see you there!

Miila Berrisford Has Graduated from Puppy School!

The Berrisfords are all bursting with pride as their puppy graduates with honours :-) Well, OK, she graduated... and the jury is still out as to whether she learned anything or not! Kudos to Marcia & John who actually had to pass an exam on Miila's behalf!
