March hymn sing draws 24

Hello. I’m back in a new month and a new season, spring.

In March we had another great GGMH hymn sing with 24 in attendance. There were solos from visitors, duets, a trio and, of course, group singing. Why not come along and join us April 25 at 6 p.m.? Throw an instrument in the back seat of your vehicle.

Every name was drawn for the ladies’ secret sister ministry. There were 14 in total. What fun the ladies are having secretly trying to place a gift, praying and encouraging.

Good Friday, people from many communities and towns started at Meota and travelled to Vawn Edam, Mervin, Turtleford, Thunderchild First Nations, Spruce Lake and on to St. Walburg. There was even a police escort in St. Walburg and some travelled the entire route. The purpose was to commemorate Good Friday, remembering the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, providing us eternal life in Heaven.

On Palm Sunday, at the close of our crucifixion message, Pastor Walker asked who would be willing to make a fresh commitment to Christ, considering the great sacrifice that our Lord made. Pastor Walker drove the first nail in the cross, stood silently and soon 26 people, many with tears streaming down their faces, made their way forward and hammered a nail in the cross. These were men, women and children.

Easter Sunday was a great day of blessing as well. He is risen.

If you do not have a regular place of worship, please join us any Sunday at 11 a.m. All COVID restrictions are in place. Everyone is welcome. We will turn no one away who chooses to worship God with us.

Until next month, remember: “What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.”
