WE NEED LEADERS: We are looking to fill 2 female and 1 male youth leader spots for this upcoming fall youth season. Ideally it would be great to have a married couple and another woman come on board. Age is no limit for volunteering with youth. They have lots of energy; don’t feel like you need to keep up with them. If you love God and want to see youth come to know and love God. Gerry would love to talk to you! And if you think that you’re not the right fit for this, but know someone who would be amazing at it, tap them on the shoulder and let Gerry know to contact them. Feel free to call or text him about what it might look like for you to be involved. His cell number is 204-362-7262.

Memory Passage for summer 2018
Isaiah 6: 1 – 8
- In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of His robe filled the temple.
- Above Him were seraphim; each with six wings: with two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying.
- And they were calling to one another, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory!”
- At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
- “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”
- Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar.
- With it he touched my mouth and said: “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”
- Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am, send me.”
