Welcome Mendres Family!

Today, as we celebrate the sacrament of baptism we welcome the Mendres family — Michael, Jessica, Landon and Grayson. Jessica first started attending Westminster in 2011, when she saw a sermon title on the church sign and was intrigued. Jessica and Michael were married at Westminster in 2015, and big brother Landon was also baptized in 2015. Michael is a firefighter/paramedic, and Jessica is an Occupational Therapist (currently on Mat leave). Congratulations and welcome Grayson!

Happy birthday, Roy!

Belated birthday wishes to Roy Halstead! He celebrated last week with family and friends. Happy Birthday, Roy!

Welcome today!

Guest Preacher, Michelle Owens, Principal of the Centre for Christian Studies

The Centre for Christian Studies is a national theological school based in Winnipeg (just up the street at 60 Maryland St). CCS has connections to the United Church of Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada, and provides theological education for those becoming diaconal ministers in the United Church of Canada, and educational opportunities for anyone interested in exploring leadership and faith/spirituality. CCS describes itself as a school, a community and a movement that seeks to educate leaders for justice, compassion and transformation.

Michelle joined the Centre for Christian Studies as principal in August 2017. She is a graduate of the Centre and a diaconal minister in the United Church of Canada. Michelle came to Winnipeg from Ontario, where she served as London Conference’s Personnel Minister. Prior to that, she had served in a three point rural charge in Perth County, Ontario, and had been a candidate for ministry from Trinity St. Paul’s United Church in Toronto.

This week in the Winnipeg Presbytery prayer cycle we remember the clients and staff of West Broadway Community Ministry and the Winnipeg Presbytery staff.

Today is Communion Sunday

Since the beginning of 2017, Welcome Place has provided assistance to over 200 refugee claimants including expectant mothers, children and infants from over a dozen countries. If these numbers simply stay the same, we’ll see 1000 refugee claimants needing assistance in the next year. Welcome Place staff have worked tirelessly to pick-up asylum seekers at the border. Staff ensure arrivals receive appropriate medical assistance, warm clothes, a meal and a place to stay.

The June Communion Offering will be forwarded to the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council, for the work at Welcome Place. Communion offering envelopes can be found on the narthex or hall tables.

Thanks to our communion servers, Ted Barnett, Lynn E. Soens, John Grivell and Phillistina Howard.
