Cadet Sunday

Today is Cadet Sunday, a day to celebrate and acknowledge our boys
and counsellors. We welcome all of the boys, their counselors and families. Did you know…the Calvinist Cadet Corps is an independent (non-
denominational) youth ministry organization whose purpose is to provide the local church with ministry programs that will enable them to
effectively share Christ’s love with boys from their church and community. Founded in 1952, the Corps has more than 600 clubs throughout North America, a brother organization in Australia and New Zealand, and since 2006 has been working in Kenya and Uganda. The
organization uses the title “Calvinist” to honor the Protestant reformer, John Calvin, who devoted his life to the religious education of God’s
children.

FROM SUNDAY SCHOOL

As of today, there are no teachers signed up for most of February and the rest of the season which runs till the end of May. Please look at the sign-up sheet and pick a class to teach (the sign-up sheet is beside the nursery on the bulletin board). The children look forward to going to Sunday School each week, and it would be a shame if we had to cancel it due to a lack of teachers.
Please prayerfully consider assisting this ministry. The work for you is very minimal. All we ask is that you look over your lessons before you teach them and that you are there to teach on those weeks that you have signed up for.
Thank you, Sunday School Committee.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Our list of volunteers for the nursery and serving coffee after the service is getting extremely small.
If you are not on either of these two lists would you please consider signing up?
Volunteering in the Nursery:
Where: come to the nursery 20 minutes before the service
What: snuggle, read, play, and sometimes change a diaper for babies and toddlers
Who: adults (younger and older men and women). Youth in grade 7 or higher
Why: so parents can worship
The goal is to have enough volunteers to be on a 2 to 3 month rotation. Currently it is every 4-6 weeks.
Serving Coffee
Where: After the service in the fellowship hall
What: serve coffee, tea, juice that has already been made. Clean up afterward. Load and unload the dish washer as needed
Who: Adults, families to serve coffee. Capable children are more than welcome to gather up the cups after.
Why: To encourage and promote members of our congregation to engage in conversation with each other and to get to know each other better
**Please email or call the church office to sign up.

EDUCATION MINISTRIES

Adult Education will begin again this evening at 6:00 pm. We will pick up our study of the Belgic Confession looking at Articles 20 and 21. We will take a closer look at the “Doctrine of Atonement” – who benefits from the sacrifice of Jesus Christ?

Faith Formation (High School) – We will meet this coming Wednesday from 6:30-7:45 pm. We will continue our study of the Lord’s Prayer and what the Heidelberg Catechism teaches us about this prayer.
