Connection (Ken Banks) lights the Advent Wreath each week in keeping with one of the many traditions invoked by Atlantic Wesleyan churches during the Christmas season. Ken preached a passionate and thought provoking message yesterday on Magi doubt-busters that boost faith in the Christ-child.
Construction on the new location for The Lighthouse (Tim Guptill) is making progress as the walls went up this week! A TBD 2020 Dedication Service will complete the final phase of the Grand Manan merger of three historic congregations. Exciting days!
- Saint John First (Graham Perry) has a monthly Faith Promise commitment of $1,715. Giving is on pace to be over $24,000 for the year which is primarily used to support four missionary families, including a cash Christmas gift.
- Blacks Harbour (HC Wilson) held a Faith Promise Sunday recently – perhaps the first ever, certainly for a very long time. Graham Perry was the guest speaker and the following Sunday over $6200 in commitments were received. Dr. HC reports, “Along with $5000 paid to Global Partners from our general budget, we should hit $10,000 this year to GP – a new high. Very proud of our congregation and the support for our three missionary families – Stevens, White and Tatton.”

- Give where you can’t be, act where you can be. (Graham Perry)
