I hope you have been making the most of the dry weather and we have 2 exciting opportunities to connect outdoors this Friday: come to Joanne & Andy West’s home (23211 St. Andrews Ave) 6-8pm for a S’more Social in Fort Langley (kids welcome), or join us for Youth Group at Passive Park Disc Golf course – your own discs if you have them 7-8:30.

It is such an enormous blessing to be able to gather together on Sunday mornings for worship now! We look forward to seeing more of you as the summer progresses, 10AM – Sunday School included for age 3-10. Cadet Matthew Rideout is preaching through a series on the fruit of the spirit and this week is all about patience – who couldn’t use more of that?

Congratulations to Tom & Peggy Iwama who welcomed twin grandbabies the other week! And also Alice & Arnie Bannerman have journeyed to Ontario to celebrate the birth of their newest great-grandchild.
