BLUMENORT, Man.—On Nov. 26 2017, Pastor Anthony Reimer performed the baptismal ceremony for eight candidates. Rachel Cox, Jayda Brandt, Clarissa Brandt, Kailey Schroeder, Kristi Nerbas, Morgen Penner, Laticia Peters, and Adrian Petkua dedicated their lives to be servants of Christ through baptism. Prayers for strength and direction for these new followers are always appreciated.
In other church news, our ladies’ programs have been thriving this past year. We have done a secret prayer sister program for the past year and will have a reveal pizza party at the end of January 2018. As a participant myself I have found it very enjoyable and rewarding to keep a specific person in my prayers as well as uplifting her with notes and gifts throughout the past 12 months.
Mom’s Morning Out is a time of fellowship that we host in our church basement every other Tuesday morning. We invite moms with young children from the congregation and community to spend time in fellowship, devotions, and lots of fun activities, including meal preps, crafts, and testimonies.
Also there will be a ladies winter retreat on March 2-4, 2018, at Camp Cedarwood. We pray that it will be a time of rest, encouragement, and fellowship for the ladies of our congregation.
