Love Atlantic rolled out all over the our region this past week. Individual church reports are still coming in – CLICK HERE for the details you need to make sure your church’s part in this is recorded in the regional video coming out this week.

  • Hartland (Dave Wilcox) blessed the covered bridge traffic with a delicious gift!
  • Kings (Brent Ingersoll) gave away $232,768 and invested 3,485 hours in acts of kindness. CLICK HERE for the video summary shown across Kings locations on Sunday – the opening scene is worth watching as one of Brent’s biggest fans kicks things off in style!
  • Pete & Shawna Stubbs shared the love with some of the St. Stephen Kings team.
  • Hillside (Dave Dixon) loved on local schools with coffee, donuts and lunches.
  • Corbett (Jason Vienneau) youth group and grades 4-5 helped prepare the gardens at Barkers Point School for winter. What an awesome opportunity for these students to grow and servce within their community to the glory of God!

It was an exciting weekend of worship at Framework as Jason Blaikie was installed as Lead Pastor over two services with nearly 500 in attendance. Always a highlight – a last minute baptism was scheduled for the Sunday service with a beautiful testimony shared by Rick Kavanaugh about how God worked through this man’s daughter to bring him to church where he accepted Christ! Jason’s passionate message called the Framework family to worship and Victoria Rowe concluded each service with an engaging and anointed time of hearts bending towards God.

The River (Mark Soone) had 18 take part in last nights 10:2 Prayer service (actually held on the 2nd night of the 10th month)! Mark shared, “It was super cool and we are going to be praying Luke 10:2 every day at 10:02. We also all committed to the Luke 10:2 challenge!” The Meductic Mandate to raise and release leaders begins for each church as we seek the Lord of the harvest to call out Disciple-Makers in our Acts 1:8 Mandate.

St. Stephen Kings took the initiative to launch a Charlotte County Youth Rally this fall called IG.Nite. Pete Stubbs shared, “IG.Nite this past Friday night was awesome! We had over 100 people out.”

  • This was in partnership with some local churches in the community for the purpose of being ENCOURAGED, ENGAGED, and EQUIPPED through worship, a message, and some fun activities. Blacks Harbour (Ken Banks) youth joined in as well as churches from several denominations across the county.

Hope (Joanne Ozon) had a “Blast from the Past!” Weekend to celebrate the 8th anniversary of the restart of our Shelburne congregation. Dave McElhinney (1976-1988) & Gary Churchill (1995-2002) provided messages over teh weekend and a surprise visit from Connie Stewart (2008-2010).

Lower Hainesville LAC – Leads Revitalization
Peggy Yetman (Lower Hainesville) invited me to share in an afternoon meeting with the Local Advisory Council (LAC) this past week. Good things are happening as the church is leaning into the future under Peggy’s leadership. Increased attendance and very significant church repairs and upgrades are laying the foundation for a season of growth and community impact ahead.
Ellen joins me in expressing our sincere condolences to the family of Mrs. Wilma Burbury as she was promoted to glory on Tuesday, September 26th, at the side of her loving daughter, Wanda.
Wilma, one of our beloved ministerial widows, has lived in Florida for the past 20+ years after retiring there with her husband, Dr. William Burbury. Our thoughts and prayers are lifted up for their four children – Warren (Pat) Burbury, Wanda (George) Oliver, Carolyn (Dave) McElhinney of River Valley Wesleyan in Grand Bay, & Elaine (Karl) Ingersoll.
  • In a call with Carolyn last week on behalf of our district, she shared that as both her parents come from Presque Isle, the family will hold a celebration of life for their mother at a later undetermined date at Framework Church. This information will be made available once the family plans are finalized. CLICK HERE for her obituary and opportunity to post personal messages of support to the family.
  • Worship is not about WHAT we do but WHY we do it. It is about bending our heart towards God. (Jason Blaikie)
  • Can any praise be worthy of the Lord’s majesty? How magnificent his strength! How inscrutable his wisdom! Man is one of your creatures, Lord, and his instinct is to praise you. He bears about him the mark of death, the sign of his own sin, to remind him that you thwart the proud. But still, since he is a part of your creation, he wishes to praise you. The thought of you stirs him so deeply that he cannot be content unless he praises you, because you made us for yourself and our hearts find no peace until they rest in you. (Augustine)
  • Haste has worry, fear, and anger as close associates; it is a deadly enemy of kindness and hence of love. (Dallas Willard)

Young Adults Headed to College?
If you have students from your church that are heading to university or college this fall, you know that their faith will be tested in critical ways over the next number of months. The pressures they face could honestly end up breaking down the faith that they’ve built during their years at your church.
  • But that doesn’t have to be the story. In fact, recent research shows that if someone from your church helps to build a bridge to Christian community in a student’s new town, the chances that they’ll stay connected to the local church doubles. It’s for that reason that Jeremy MacDonald (Moncton) has put together the resources to do that in a unique and special way — by inviting your graduating students to become Post-Secondary Missionaries. Sent from your church to their new communities.

Everything you need is located in this folder: You can also reach out to Jeremy with any questions or help you’d like with your youth ministry as his organization, the Youth Worker Community, is helping churches across our country better disciple students each week. He can be reached at
