Looking for what's about to happen in the days ahead? You've come to the right place:
Coming up in June 2018:
June About a month ago Pastor Spence and Marcia annonced that they will be retiring from Faith Community Church. The timeline for this is somewhat indefiite as pastor Spence has offered to stay on until a search committee can be set up and then can locate the next leader for this congregation. So on June 03 we will be handing out a questionaire to the congregation to assess what they would like to see as qualities, traits and educational/ experince. We will also post a job description for the people that will be on the search committee. We are looking for 3 volunteers from the congregation for this task and they will be joined by 2 others from the Board. Hopefully by June 24 we will be able to determine who is on this and they will begin the process as laid out in the Transitions portion of the AGC maunal. Please be in prayer for this process as we work together as a congregation to see the suuccession of leadership done in a way that is smooth and glorifies the Lord.

Also in June... We have a regular Bible Study that takes place every Wednesday night at the church (5005 Broadway Ave) . We have been working our way through Genesis. It's an interactive time of asking questions of the chapter and discussing the way God works not only through the Patriarchs but us as well. Their is also a Bible Study in Ponoka at Brian and Shirley West's home that takes place on Thursdays at 7pm.
Please continue to pray for the family of five that we are sponsoring to come to Canada. They are presently awaiting thier interview and the steps that follow after it.
