ISRAEL

May 2-12/2019 with Pastor Jim and Charlene – Brochures at entrance.

Hearing Assistance

A hearing induction loop system has been installed in the sanctuary. For those with the technology built into their hearing device (please switch to ‘T’) it will automatically send a signal to that device to enable clearer sound (without an additional headset). For those without the necessary technology, headsets are available for use. Though Pastor Jim can usually be heard by those living a few streets over, the same cannot be said for all of our service leaders, readers and pulpit guests. We trust this will help all to hear all of the service. Thank you for your continued faithful and generous giving which enables us to move forward with projects such as this without a special appeal.

Men’s Chorus

Next Sunday, September 30, at the end of the morning service a men’s chorus will rehearse “All Creatures of Our God and King” to sing on Thanksgiving Sunday morning, October 7. All men, young men too, are welcome to join this chorus.

Our Daily Bread

The LARGE PRINT edition for October to December is now available from the entryway counter. Take! Use!

Our Jerusalem

We have deignated the area in closest proximity to 600 Minto as “Our Jerusalem.” The borders are Ellice Ave on north, Arlington St on the east, the Assiniboine River on the south and Strathcona St and Denson Pl on the west. Faith Bible Church is a city and area wide church but we continue to pray that God would work mightily among our closest neighbours here in Winnipeg’s historic west end. Thank you for continuing to pray for this very diverse potion of Winnipeg not just on Sunday mornings but also all through the week.

Dear brothers and sisters at Faith Bible Church,

This summer was another busy, challenging, and rewarding summer! Although some weeks were tight on staff, this is the first summer I remember in a long time where we had enough staff to have all the cabins open for every week! Approximately 255 campers between the ages of 8 and 17 came this summer. Every one of them had the opportunity to hear God’s Word presented clearly in our chapel sessions, cabin devotions, and interactions with cabin leaders and various staff.

Our theme this summer was ‘Crazy Love’ based off of John 3:16-21. We wanted these kids to get a picture of what true love is – to wrap their minds around a God so holy with a love so big that He would send His one and only Son to die in the place of people who are so sinful that we cannot even see God without being consumed because of our sin.

Everywhere where God’s Word is going out, the enemy will work overtime to mess things up. We saw this through the summer in various ways, but as we continued to commit the camp, staff, LIT’s, and campers to God we saw Him work in mighty ways! As a camp, our purpose and prayer is that everything said and done will be In HIS Name, By HIS Power, and For HIS Glory.

One example was during our teen week when one of the girls was upset with her cabin leaders for the guidelines that they were asking her to follow. Eventually they sent her to talk to me. I knew her, as I had been her very first cabin leader and watched her grow up at camp. I know some of the choices that she is making in life. Now she was angry and wanting to go home. Through our conversation, we talked about how she loves camp. We talked about how everywhere we go in life we run into rules – some we might like and some we won’t. We talked about how God has put authorities in our lives and we need to choose how we will respond. I asked if she could try listening to her cabin leaders and respecting them and see how the rest of the day went before deciding to leave. By later in the day she was doing well and loving being at camp again. The next day her cabin leader told me a funny and encouraging story. During the evening chapel, this girl asked her cabin leader to trade places with her. When her cabin leader asked why, she indicated the girl next to her and said “she’s distracting me from hearing about God.” To go from a girl not wanting to listen – either to her cabin leaders or to the messages in chapel – to making a statement like this is

something that only God can do, and we praise Him for it! Please continue to pray for this girl, and the many others who were challenged this summer with the message of God’s holiness and love.

We want to thank you so much for your part in Pine Ridge Bible Camp and the lives of these kids! Thank you for your financial support to help make running this camp possible and for your prayer support as only God can set them free.

In HIS Name, By HIS Power, For HIS Glory! – Tabitha Wahlstrom, for all of us at PRBC.

Pine Ridge Bible Camp is a ministy of NCEM (Northern Canada Evangelical Mission) which is one of Faith Bible Church’s mission partners.
