Weekly Wire for June 29, 2011


Sunday School Picnic – Vancouver- and sunny too!

 Vancouver - Sunday School Picnic 001 Vancouver - Sunday School Picnic 006

The weather was perfect for our annual Sunday School Picnic in Vancouver last Sunday!  Everyone brought delicious food but the best part was the great conversations with friends…well the kids might have something to say about that.  Sarah-Joy Hopkin brought a “parachute” for the kids to play with … and boy was it a huge hit.

First everyone grabs an edge…

then up up up… and two people from opposite sides run underneath as quick as they can to switch positions!  Next we tucked the edges under us and sat on them…voila a giant mushroom!

The cat never had it so tough as in this game of cat and mouse…the cat runs around on top of the parachute looking for the mouse while the team vigorously whips the edges of the parachute.  The mouse runs under the parachute trying not to get caught!

Special thanks to Leah Christensen for organizing our event and Sarah-Joy Hopkin for bringing the games!

New – Canada West Mission Prayer List


In July we will be starting up a Canada West Mission Prayer list which we plan to have come out the first and 15th of each month(or close to those dates). The prayer requests will stay on the list for 2 cycles or one month, please update your requests after that.  You may want to assign one person from your congregation to send these in, and of course anyone can send individual pray requests as they feel the need.   Please send your prayer requests to

When writing a prayer request please use the following format:

John Smith – Vancouver – Broken arm

Mary Smith- Ribstone – Cancer and Stomach issues

Joe Smith – Calgary – Personal Strength and Support

There are two reasons for the simplified format, one – we anticipate a large list and two – it’s important to be mindful of the personal privacy of the person asking for prayers.   God will know what each of us needs.
