Summer! Living in Canada, we treasure the summer (if it actually arives this year) and we are constantly looking for ways to celebrate the great outdoors!
And what is better than celebrating the great outdoors? Doing it together, as a church family! So mark your calendars now for our third annual Keele Camp.
Coming up on May 31 we will be having our first planning meeting for this year. Hope to see you there!
What are we going to be doing?
- Campfire: Friday night, complete with worship, a short devotion and hot dogs and smores!
- family activities
- Crafts and games for the kids
- Study/discussion for the adults
- Lots of time to fellowship and be together
- And of course . . .FOOD!
- Any ideas?: talk to or e-mail Grant!
When: July 17-18
Theme: “To Be Announced”
Keele Street Christian Church is the home for a Portuguese-speaking Brazilian church plant. Pastor Jose Fernandes and his lovely wife Regina, with the support of Hisportic Christian Mission, meet here Sundays at 5:30 pm. Check out Maple Leaf’s website
Dear Attenders at Keele: Anyone walking into our building will notice a large leak in the entryway, the leak is actually coming from the peaked roof on the new edition.
In the past few years the shingles have deteriorated to the point that we have lost a good number of them to high winds. Those that are left have cracked and shrunk, and been adversely affected by our pigeon squatters!
As a result we asked for quotes from various roofers over the summer and last week the board decided that, given the quotes, we would have a new steel roof installed. This will give us a minimum of 50 years of trouble-free life. The cost will be $35,000 and with approximately 1,000 pieces required to cover the roof, we are beginning a “purchase a piece” campaign in which families and individuals can purchase their own piece of the roof in increments of $35. We know this is a large expense, but it is also an inescapable expense.
Update: PTL we are at 75% to paying off the roof! Thanks for all your generous support! You are a blessing! With the Lord’s help we will take care of this expense in record time!
There will be a meeting for the Sunday School teachers and volunteers on Sunday May 3, 12:30 pm.
Hope to see you there!
