BBQ and paint night @BPC!
- I would like again to thank all the volunteers that made our Friday BBQ at the church to be such a success again!
- Great food, great activities, and great time spent chatting with a lot of new friends!
- Can’t help but mention that we had some amazing hamburgers, that made the BBQ Chef’s job such a pleasure! Thanks Dave B.!
- Keep praying for all the kids, parents, and neighbors that we got to meet through the Kids Camp and through our Community BBQs!
Adi and Ana will soon go on vacation for three weeks
- Ana and I will fly out to Romania in exactly one week, and we’ll have about three weeks to spend with family and friends in Romania, and also celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary while we are over there.
- That also means that for the next few weeks there will be no more emails from me. Pastor Nick will probably send out some church emails while I am gone.
- Pray for us, as air travel has not been at its best the last few months. Pearson Airport is ranked No.1 on the “worst airports in the world” list… But God is good, and I trust Him that He will watch over our flights and our luggage too!
Missions trip to Sault Ste. Marie
- Starting this Saturday, pastor Nick will take a team of 7 youth and young adults for a mission trip to Sault Ste. Marie!
- They will work with Bible Fellowship Church (an AGC church) and will run a week-long camp for kids! They call it “Adventure Camp 2022” and will run August 8-12. They will return on August 13th
- Pray for God’s protection over campers and staff, and pray also for open hearts for the Gospel!
DOXA Cake Auction tonight at the church
- DOXA (Youth Unlimited/Youth for Christ) will have a cake auction tonight at the church, at 6pm, to raise funds for the mission trips organized by the Kids Camps leaders and staff. That includes pastor Nick’s team that is heading up to Bible Fellowship Church in Sault Ste Marie.
- If you would like to contribute – or if you just love cakes – join the auction tonight!
AGC prayer guide
- I have attached the AGC prayer guide for the month of August
- Take a look to see what is happening and what to pray for in the Associated Gospel Churches around Canada
The Youth Sports Ministry will continue through the summer!

Time is too important to waste it on matching socks. Just buy longer pants…
