"To God be the glory, great things He has done." It has been an eventful summer at Edmonton Mill Woods SDA Church. On Women's Ministries Day, June 13, several sisters in our congregation were given tokens of appreciation and commended for their individual contributions. As well, Ralph presented three women from the community - Agnes, Patricia, and Lorna - with certificates for their completion of an eye-opening group Bible study on the book of Romans.
Pastor Ishmael Ali from Calgary Garden Road was guest speaker for Community Guest Day, June 20.
At the end of June, the Youth Ministries Department held a bottle drive fundraiser, and the overwhelming community support enabled our church to present $1000 for airfare for one of our youth and her mother to travel for her surgery at the Toronto Sick Kids Hospital. We are thankful that she is healing up very nicely!
The theme for July 25's Youth Day was "Be Ready," with CUC student Joseph Augustine as guest speaker. The Sabbath afternoon was particularly hot, but it was perfect weather for our Youth Ministries outreach activity in Mill Woods Park--the distribution of free cold bottled water with a tag of introduction to our church.
