KLEEFELD, Man. — Family and friends filled the sanctuary at the Kleefeld EMC on Oct. 30, 2016, to witness and support the four couples who were dedicating themselves to raise their children in the desire that they grow up to honour and glorify Christ. As a congregation we continue to support and encourage these young families and remember them in prayer.

A special deacon commissioning service took place at KEMC on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017. Elected to this role were Vik and Martha Sawatzky. Thanks, Vik and Martha, for accepting this responsibility, and we wish you the Lord’s blessings as your serve the church in this capacity.

Once a month the seniors at KEMC look forward to sharing a Sunday meal of soup, buns, and dessert. For the past several years this has been organized and prepared by Norm and Rosella Bartel, Leonora Koop, and Elma Fast. We express our appreciation to them for the excellent food and fellowship opportunity. This past year Darrin and Alvira Warkentin stepped in to take their place; and, on behalf of the seniors, we thank them for continuing this service. God bless!
