City-Wide Worship Service


On Saturday, February 10, there will be a city-wide worship service hosted by Red River Valley Junior Academy.

As they plan for their future, they ask for our prayers and support to guide their decision-making process. One way to do this is to have all the Winnipeg Adventist churches join together for worship and prayer.

The morning starts at 9:30 am with various Sabbath School classes for all ages. The adult lesson study will be led by Elder David Ripley, president of the Manitoba-Saskatchewan Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

The worship service begins at 10:40 am and will be filled with lots of praise music, selections from the school band and a special message by Pastor Sethres Dixon, senior pastor of the Henderson Highway Church.

The venue for worship will be at 851 Panet Road (The King’s School). This is northeast of Panet Road and Munroe Ave. There is parking located both in front and behind the building.

The venue is also accessible by Winnipeg Transit. The closest stops, services by routes #77 and #85, are at Panet Rd & Girdwood Cres.
Northbound stop is #40689
Southbound stop is #40690

At 6:00 pm, there is a special meeting at Red River Valley Junior Academy (56 Grey St). All constituency delegates, parents & guardians of students are invited to attend. This meeting will explore some of the options for RRVJA and its future. There will be refreshments served after the meeting. There is also childcare available.
