IMPACT Winnipeg 2019 Launch

Everyone is welcome to join us Saturday, April 7 at 10:00 am for the launch of IMPACT Winnipeg 2019.

Pastor Chris Holland, Speaker & Director of It Is Written Canada, will be here to lead this city-wide rally. Henderson Highway Church will be closed for us to meet at the RBC Convention Centre on April 7. Located in downtown Winnipeg at 375 York Ave, this venue will also be the home for Impact Winnipeg 2019 next spring.

God loves everyone and wants us all to be saved. IMPACT Winnipeg is about flooding the city with the everlasting gospel message of Jesus Christ. This launch is the first step of this outreach. We’ll have an opportunity to come together and have dedicated prayer time as we seek God’s wisdom and direction. We’re earnestly asking God “How will you use me in impacting Winnipeg?” 

Our launch day continues with an afternoon event at Red River Valley Junior Academy. Beginning at 4:30 pm, we’ll have a time of intentional and focused prayer. Interspersed with interactive music and scripture, we’ll continue to seek God’s direction for IMPACT Winnipeg. We cannot do His work without Him.

Opportunities for Giving

All throughout September, there are numerous giving opportunities for us to participate in. Listed below are the offering designations for the weekend of September 30:

North American Division Evangelism
Though the gospel message itself is priceless, there are costs associated with sharing the message. The funds raised will help to support the various methods in which to share the gospel.

You can contribute to this building project anytime online through the Adventist Giving site. Contributions can also be made at church, by indicating ‘NAD Evangelism’ on your cheques or offering envelopes.

Encounter Bible Program
This is a special offering for Adventist education within the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada. The Adventist Encounter Bible curriculum is being introduced across Canada this school year and needs our help.

“How excited I am to take this walk with God along with my students!” wrote one
teacher after the recent Encounter teacher training. We invite you to partner with us—schools, homes, and churches—to provide Bible resources that invite students to encounter Jesus.

That’s the goal of the new Adventist Encounter Bible curriculum. It is designed, not only to
give students content knowledge of the Bible, but to lead them into a personal relationship
with Jesus and inspire a passion to share Him with others.

Though the Bible is the only textbook, the program includes a wealth of resources that help make the teaching of Bible come alive for our children. These represent the best methods and freshest thoughts that Mrs. White was referring to. Please help us and our teachers to share Jesus with our children with these Bible resources in our Adventist schools. Thank you for your generous support!

You contribute to the Encounter Bible Program at any time online through the Adventist Giving site. Contributions can also be made anytime at church, by indicating ‘Encounter Bible Program’ on an envelope.


ADRA Canada Disasters/Famine Relief
This is a special offering, as determined by the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists. ADRA Canada (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) is working with ACS (Adventist Community Services) to bring much-needed assistance to areas devasted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and most recently, Maria. In addition to emergency supplies, ACS has also been providing emotional and spiritual support. The funds will provide urgently needed support to the relief and recovery efforts resulting from the hurricanes.

You can give to Hurricane Relief efforts this coming weekend at church. Please indicated ‘Hurricane Relief’ on the offering envelope. Cheques can be made payable to ‘ADRA Canada Hurricane Response’. Donations can also be made online at any time at ADRA Canada or by telephone 888 274 2372.

 

 

 

 

 

Please keep praying for these projects. Make giving a matter of prayer. God will always guide us appropriately.
