BLUMENORT, Man.—We have celebrated many exciting events in the church. On April 22, 2018, we celebrated the ordinations of Alain Reimer and James Driedger in a wonderful service where we encouraged them to keep on learning and serving the Lord wherever He plants them.

On May 6, 2018, five candidates participated in the Sunday morning baptism service. Austin Kehler, Leanna Giesbrecht, Daniel Mandel, Justin Reimer, and Kyra Sawatzky publicly declared their faith and trust in Christ and were baptized.

One short week later, on May 13 we had 13 families participate in a parent-child dedication ceremony. It was a joyful occasion for the church family.

We have a full summer of Bible Camp coming up in a few short weeks at Eagle Lake Bible Camp in Ontario. We are once again running a Summer VBS program from June 24-28. The theme is Time Lab: Discovering Jesus from Eternity Past to Eternity Future.

We also have our annual church in the park event together with the Ridgewood EMC at the community fair days on July 1. We thank you for your prayers as we celebrate these events together as a church, and as we work together to be the hands and feet of Jesus wherever we go.
