Wednesday Worship

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24

Wednesday Worship at the church. This is a time of praise, prayer, raising up scripture and then separating into smaller groups to pray one for another. This is a safe place to pray and confess and share. Come all, come frequently. The meetings are every second Wednesday evening at 7 pm. During July and August we meet for a BBQ at 5:30 pm. Please click here for a list of week-day events and the date of the next Wednesday gathering.

Prayer to God and worship of God is so powerful because our God is mighty and because He loves us and He is praying for us and He was loving us and praying for us before we were converted and turned to him.

Let us always remember that “We love him, because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19 KJV) and remember the words Jesus spoke to Simon (Peter) “And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: 32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” (Luke 22: 31-32 KJV).

David Ravenhill

In June 2012, Dadavid ravenhillvid Ravenhill spoke powerfully at the conference in Montreal, arranged by St. Timothy’s, Pointe-Claire. He continues to speak out through The Anvil.

When he came to Montreal, he changed what he was to speak on to speaking about prayer and that through prayer we can pull down strongholds.

He says there are three very important things that we need to know about prayer: God’s love for us, God’s power towards us and God’s presence with us. Without one of those aspects, prayer is like a 3-legged stool. Remove one leg and it cannot stand.

Blessing Box Sundays

What is a Blessing Box Sunday?

Blessing Box Sundays were begun by Vi Leach. In order to help us remember our daily blessings, Vi suggested we keep account of them. Vi gave many of us a box with a slot in the top, (blessing box). The box is kept centrally and when we pass it, we put in a coin and thank God for his blessings, or you can put in many coins and thank him for his many blessings. Doing this we keeps in mind the many ways God blesses us throughout the day, week, month and year. The offerings in the box are given back to God during worship on a Sunday.

Which Sunday? Every fifth Sunday in a month is when we hold a family service with testimonials so it seemed to be the perfect place to bring in our blessing boxes. Before testimonials there is a time of gathering the coins during a special moment of praise. The testimonials are a time of sharing from any in the congregation.

CountYourBlessings1

While Vi has gone to be with Jesus, her blessing boxes continue as part of the Family Service and we are blessed to have a member of the congregation who supplies us with new boxes. This person has shared many testimonies of God’s blessings in her life and encourages us to continue to count our blessings and to share.

Bishop Charlie’s Vision for God’s purpose for ANIC

From September 2014 to April 2015, our diocesan, Bishop Charlie Masters, travelled from coast to coast sharing his vision and priorities for ANiC. You can see his schedule of meetings here and photos from some of those meeting – especially the children’s sessions – here.

Bishop Charlie is challenging ANiC congregations to focus on these five priorities in their ministries. We are praying that God will make these priorities transformational realities in the life of every ANiC congregation.
