- We had an opportunity to visit briefly with Nick, Beth and the girls in Halifax last week. They had been out for dinner together as a family and we chatted in the parking lot, no less. Surgery is in the offing. Remember to pray.
- The hard-working leaf raking crew at Beulah who cared for more than 30 trailer loads of leaves were hosted by Bruce and Roxie for lunch last week. Lobster rolls and seafood chowder was the menu. Who wants to sign up to rake leaves next fall?
- Moncton youth – PRYME – saw 14 first time commitments to Christ in their meeting last week. PTL!
- River Valley recently presented a seminar entitled, “Who are Muslims and How to Love Them.” Hats off to RV for addressing this significant current issue.
- Tim Guptill was a guest last week on Carry Nieuwhof’s podcast – check it out – @cnieuwhof.
- Kingswood is planning a Holy Land trip in the spring of 2016. A journey to the land where the Master walked and ministered is an experience of deep spiritual impact. Please check this link for further detail.

THOT: “I have no sympathy with anyone, whatever his station, who will not brook criticism. We are here to get the best possible results.” – Dwight D Eisenhower on the eve of D Day.

Kingswood University invites you and your congregation to Carols at Kingswood on Sunday, December 6, in the Saunders Irving Chapel at 6:30 p.m. Through Bible readings, music by the campus choir and soloists, creative arts, and carols by candlelight, the service will focus on the Advent story, the expectant waiting for the coming of Christ. Admission is free; however, in the spirit of Christmas joy and giving, the university will collect donations of canned good and toiletry items for local charities.
Kingswood tour of Israel in May 10 – 18, 2016. Cost is between $3,500 – 3,800 U.S. depending on how many people go (the more that go, the less expensive the trip). This is truly a once in a life-time opportunity to see and experience first-hand the sights and sounds of the Holy Land, and to walk where Jesus walked. Such an enriching experience. More information can be found on the website.
Advent 2015: LOVE Revealed

Included are sermon outlines, disciple group lessons for children, youth, and adults, devotionals, daily readings, and more.
Revealing His LOVE for the world, God sent His only Son so that we might live through Him.
