God’s Changing Lives @ Wharf Rat Rally
Andrew Maves (Digby) was instrumental in the creation of the annual Wharf Rat Rally. CLICK HERE for the origin story of how the first WRR came to pass in 2005. Each year has resulted in thousands of visitors to Digby over Labour Day Weekend.
After a two-year pandemic hiatus the church family hosted another Biker Breakfast and Blessing of the Bikes Service this weekend. Andrew shared, “Two dozen raised their hands in response at the blessing. Beautiful times. That’s what God does.”
Lego Camp @ Miramichi Wesleyan
Miramichi (Anton Topilnyckyj) held Camp Legoland last month for Grade 1-6 kids. Anton shared, “We had 27 children attend the camp several families came for breakfast and service on Sunday. Our Camp theme was Building Godly Friendships. Our campers and volunteers ranged in age from 4 – 86! Volunteers came from our congregation as well as from others in the community. A good time was had by all, and God name was praised all week.”
New Hope (Scott Prime) celebrated seven baptisms the end of August! Summer is a great season to host special events for highlighting the ways God is transforming lives.

  • And speaking of changing lives – the New Hope Wesleyan family recently provided generous donations for The Welcome Project for Ukrainian refugees. Missions Pastor Karen Doucette recently received a letter of gratitude on behalf of 150 newly arrived families and their hosts. One Ukrainian lady wrote, “I sincerely thank you and all Canadians for their support and desire to help Ukrainians in such a difficult time for them. You are doing an incredible job that inspires us to move forward, despite the obstacles in life!”

The Welcome Project letter stated, “It may just seem like shampoo and diapers, but to our newly arrived Ukrainians, it is a message of caring. And, when they find out that hundreds of donors have participated in collections they are deeply moved.”

Bud Fancy (Framework) shared from his heart during the Celebration of Life for Irene’s mother, Mary Duvall on Thursday. Special thanks to all those who were able to be present on behalf of our Atlantic District family to support her husband Tom, daughter Diane and the Fancy family.
General Conference Constitutional Memorial Update
The following information regarding Memorial 52 “Gifts of the Spirit” and Memorial 55 “Membership Commitments” was posted on and then the Wesleyan Pastors Facebook Page earlier this month. These links provide detailed updates regarding the aggregate votes on these constitutional items for all district conferences across North America this summer.

The National Board of The Wesleyan Church of Canada (TWCC) convened last month to provide leadership for a variety of administrative matters. We are grateful for National Superintendent Steve Elliott and his ongoing direction as our Established National Conference continues to mature in these early years in preparation to become our own General Conference.

  • The National 2023 Prayer Tour will be a powerful time next spring and summer as we spend time together across Maine & Canada in preparation for our second National Conference in Calgary, AB on August 11-12, 2023.

Special Abuse Prevention Training Opportunity

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).

  • Content is never the problem. Being obedient to what God wants me to preach and His people to hear – now that takes a little more discernment. (Andy Phillips)
  • Let’s admit we can’t reach everyone, so let’s invest our time in the reliable people we can reach. Find out who is toxic to you, consider walking away, and entrust them to God. (Gary Thomas)
  • God’s grace is more like wind in a sail than it is like lightning. God will not change our hearts without a real participation on our parts. (Roberta Bondi)
