Beginning October 20th, the Adult Sunday School will be starting a six-week series entitled “Exploring the Land of the Story: Unlocking Biblical Geography.” Understanding the land of the Bible is indispensable in understanding the Bible itself. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity! Given the amount of material that will be covered, please make every effort to be on time.
Location: Fellowship Hall
Leader: Nelson Deuitch
Time: Sunday 10:00 am.
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 shoebox campaign for “Operation Christmas Child”. We already have the shoeboxes and info pamphlets available for you to take home. All shoeboxes have to be returned to the church building here at Keele by Sunday, November 17th.
In 2018, we collected 55 boxes! Let’s see what we can do this year!
Our next board meeting will be November 17th at 1:00 pm.
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 8th after the worship service.
All ladies from Keele are invited to join the folks at Evangeline House on December 11, 7:30 pm for the Christmas Party. Please bring some goodies to share! If you are bringing goodies, please plan on being there for 7:00 pm to help assemble the goodie plates.
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!
This Wednesday (April 12) our Bible Study Group (and whoever else wants to come) will be going to see “The Case for Christ” movie. The buzz is good, and for those who have read many of Lee Strobel’s books and who know his story, this should be a “must-see” movie. Come for a fun night and at meet us at the movies!
