Worship Team Meeting

We will be having a combined worship team meeting on Sunday November 23rd, at 12:30 pm. Bring your ideas, hopes, and concerns.

Please mark your calendar now and set aside the time to attend. We want your ideas and input!


Christmas Shoe Boxes

Operation Christmas Child
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 16th.


UPDATE: We delivered 85 boxes to a collection center today. I believe that is a record for our congregations! Thanks so much to everyone who participated. You have helped Keele and Maple Leaf to be a blessing!


Youth Sleep Over

Calling All Youth!:
Friday November 28th we will be having a Youth Sleep over.


Doors open at 6:30 pm. Sleep over ends Saturday morning at 10:00 am.
Bring a sleeping bag or blanket and a pillow. Also bring either some snacks or drinks.


Evangeline House Christmas Party

We’re Raising the Roof

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!
