Atlantic Connexion

Love Atlantic surged through the region last week as radical generosity and service in Jesus’ name was poured out in over 8,100 hours of volunteerism and nearly $450K given away to bless others.

  • Please read that again. PRAISE GOD for the 134 churches and partner denominations/organizations who cast the Love Atlantic vision to more than 31K potential participants in this first-ever mobilization of its kind in the Atlantic Region.

Three Churches – 385 Parking Fees @ Waterville Hospital
This is what Love Atlantic looks like. Hartland (Dave Wilcox), Lower Brighton (Jacob Ebbett), & Trinity (Joel Bridges) joined forces to mobilize 20 volunteers who gave 33 hours at the Upper River Valley Hospital to offer free parking to those in Carlton County who had appointments and loved ones to visit. A total of 385 cars parked last week for FREE in Jesus’ Name to show the love of the Church for the county. CLICK HERE to see more pics on Facebook.

  • Hartland Wesleyan (Dave Wilcox & Devon McAllister) gave $5 to everyone who attended the October 2nd service with one request (pic above right). Give it away for Love Atlantic week and report back.
  • Dave shared, “We were excited to be a part of Love Atlantic. We did a free BBQ, gave Tim Cards to Local Fire Department volunteers and Ambulance drivers. We set a goal to do 300 acts of love and ended up doing 686 acts of love. $2250 donated, 119 hours given.” Amazing – a fantastic week for our Hartland family.
Community Supper (A Taste of Home) at Havelock (Shawn Craven) was birthed from a variety of needs in the surrounding neighbourhoods. Assistant Pastor Kathryn Brooks shared, “No matter where someone is coming from, when they sit at our tables they become family to us.” This monthly ministry fell in the schedule of Love Atlantic and was another outlet for showing Christ’s love for those in Weymouth.
Framework Love Atlantic Team Helping a Family in Need
Framework (Bud Fancy) recruited a local college to join volunteers from the church family in doing acts of love for the fire department, schools, pregnancy care centers, state parks, homeless shelters and more in and around peoples homes and neighborhoods in the Aroostook County.

  • But wait. Aren’t we supposed to be careful to do our good deeds in secret? CLICK HERE for an inspirational post by Shawna Stubbs that beautifully captures the heart of Jesus for Love Atlantic. Please be praying for Shawna and her husband, Pete, as they prepare to launch Kings – St. Stephen this Sunday – stay tuned!
The Beulah Dining Hall was packed on Thanksgiving Sunday. The service concluded with the Pastoral Installation for Jay & Sharon Guptill as Co-Pastors of Browns Flat Fellowship. The Guptills led BFF in giving generously as part of Love Atlantic to provide a significant gift for the Browns Flat community center – The Hub. Jay & Sharon are continuing to develop opportunities to serve the greater Church and Kingdom leaders through “Made for More Ministries” as they provide counseling, coaching, and retreats.

  • The opposite of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge. When one thinks they already know, they have lost the capacity to learn. (Steve DeNeff)
  • We’re so busing defending the “ego” the moment the other person takes another view. It speaks of a deeper fragility of the soul. (Steve DeNeff)
  • When you get really smart people in the room, they always talk about what they don’t know. (Steve DeNeff)

Abuse Prevention Ministry Training – Two Options

The national office of The Wesleyan Church of Canada is pleased to announce an “Abuse Prevention” webinar in partnership with the organization Plan to Protect. The live webinar will take place on two Saturdays – October 15th & 29th from 10:00 a.m. to noon Eastern Standard Time (11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Atlantic Time). These are identical live presentations so participants only need to choose to attend one of the two events.

All pastors, leaders of specialized ministries, board members, and/or lay ministry leaders who work with children, teens or the vulnerable are welcomed and highly encouraged to attend. Cost is $5/person and is made payable to your local church, which will forward the registration fee to the national office. Join us as we proactively take steps to reduce the likelihood that any form of abuse would tragically happen in or through the ministries of our local churches, camping/retreat ministries, counseling centres, chaplain ministries, global ministry settings, etc.

Click on the QR codes above to register, and then submit the $5 fee to your local church treasurer and ask them to forward this payment to our national office. You may also register by clicking to select the link for your preferred date of participation:
