Beginning October 28, we began a new study being lead by Bill Hickox, based on some of the teaching we shared in our recent trip to Thailand and the Philippines. Come and enter into the Battle!
Location: Fellowship Hall

One of the best ways to show the true meaning of Christmas to your children or grandchildren is to do a shoebox with them! It is a practical, hands-on way to share with those in need.
Once again Keele and Maple Leaf are involved in the shoe box campaign for “Operation Christmas Child”. We already have the shoe boxes and info pamphlets available for you to take home. All shoe boxes have to be returned to the church building here at Keele by Sunday November 11th.
This year we collected 51 boxes! Thanks to everyone who participated!
Each year Keele collects and donates personal items to make up gift bags for each of the ladies residing at Evangeline House, which is our local women’s shelter. If you would like to donate to this cause, just include your donation in the “other” section of your offering envelopes.
This year we are packing the bags on December 9th after the worship service.
All ladies from Keele are invited to join the folks at Evangeline House on December 10, 7:00 pm for the Christmas Party. Please bring some goodies to share!
The annual meeting for members of Ontario Christian Assembly will be held at Westway Christian Church on Sunday April 8th, at 4:00 pm.
Soup and sandwiches will be served.
Dear Attenders at Keele: We have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we have finished paying off our loan for the new roof on our addition. The bad news is that we have to finally, after over 100 years, replace the slate roof on the original building. Unfortunately the slate has become a danger and we can no longer repair it.
As a result we asked for quotes from various roofers and have been in talks with the city since the building is listed as a heritage property, this past Sunday (June 21) we made our decision and we are going to have the same steel roof installed that we used on the addition. In order to do that, we are going to have the slate removed. The cost is going to be close to $50,000. We know this is a large expense, but it is also an inescapable expense. Please be praying about how you can support this new project and help keep the property both safe and in good repair.
As of the end of May we have raised $23,320.00! Praise the Lord and everyone who has been so generous!
We are having a Plan to Protect Seminar for anyone working or volunteering at OCA
