Global Partners, in harmony with Dan and Edie Mullen’s 20 piano orchestra, encourage your attendance at Beulah Camp’ Labor Day 2015 Sunday Morning Service. 12 of our cherished missionary hymns, combined with historic moments of our Wesleyan Missions, will make this a memorable event. Many of our own Wesleyan pianists will be at the full size acoustic uprights, making the THOUSANDS of strings give Glory to God! The free will offering on Sunday will go in it’s entirely to Global Partners Outreach. – Piano Dan

Last week, I was in Indianapolis for meetings concerning The Wesleyan Church of Canada and especially for further interaction with the Membership Working Group (MWG) as we wrestle with the task before us. What a great and energizing group of fully devoted followers of Christ to work with on this significant assignment. The MWG also interacted with the GS for an hour or more. As the Master brings this matter to mind, please pray for wisdom and courage going forward.
- Last Sunday there was a baptism held at Kentville New Hope.
- Yesterday, Woodstock baptized 10 and sj1 held a baptism in a city park.
- Why so much about baptisms you ask? Every person baptized is living testimony of the power of grace and redemption. Every person baptized reflects a Great Commission conscience in the church. Be faithful in outreach and weary not in well doing – in due season you will reap……
- Would love to share news from your church, but cannot share what I do not know.
- Nackawic held a special service to show support and love for their former pastors Carl and Evelyn Brewer who are soon headed to Shelburne. The service was capped by a powerful time of laying on of hands and prayer for the Brewers. Thanks Pastor Ryan for this encouraging service for the Brewers.
- Peter conducted the first of our 13 pastoral installations for the year at Lower Brighton yesterday (Jacob Ebbett). Summer attendance has been strong and yesterday concluded an August campaign to purchase heat pumps for the sanctuary which exceeded the goal by $1000 – well done Pastor Jacob!
- Peter conducted a meeting on Sunday afternoon with the boards of our Lower Hainesville church and the Staples Settlement Baptist church – a 7 minute drive away. This resulted in the enthusiastic acceptance of Pastor Scott to serve as a circuit pastor for both congregations. Service times have been adjusted; the Wesleyans will be attending the Baptist Sunday School and the Baptists will be attending the Wesleyan youth group! Scott will preach at 10 AM for the Baptists and at 11:15 AM for the Wesleyans. These two small country churches are excited about being stronger together with greater potential to reach their community. Onward and upward I say.
Friday evening provided perfect weather for the annual Beulah Volunteer Appreciation night at River Haven. Words of gratitude were expressed on behalf of the the District for the essential role so many play in contributing to the ongoing operation of Beulah Camp & Conference Center. A special highlight of the evening focussed on the service of Roxie Cheney who concluded her role in April. She has faithfully and effectively served alongside her husband Bruce (Beulah Caretaker) in coordinating support for events on the campground. Ron Bunn officially joined the team in April as Beulah Coordinator and is now responsible for bookings and the oversight of housekeeping & food services. His wife Gloria has also been a celebrated addition to the team. Beulah rentals and events are increasing from year to year and this ministry is key component of future vision. To explore Beulah facilities for your church event, please contact Ron Bunn (email@example.com, 506.333.7363).
