Our Sympathy extends to the family of Catherine Williams, who passed away last Tuesday evening after several months of physical struggle. Visitation will take place Wednesday morning, here at Milliken Church beginning at 11am. The Funeral will begin at noon. Please continue to pray for the family as they walk through these days of grieving and loss.

The speaker will be Dr. Stephen Elliott, professor of theology and spiritual formation at Kingswood University. Come be inspired through the music and testimonies at this great gathering.

Special Notice Please note that our Church Office will be closed this Thursday and Friday because of the District Conference in Brockville. Thank you.

Ryerson University

Evangelist Jessica Barnett serves with Power to Change Ministries here in Toronto at Ryerson University. This week she wrote with another ministry update…

Dear Milliken Church Friends, What a blessing it is to know that you are remembering us in prayer. The energy and spiritual passion of our students remains strong. Several of them just returned this week from six-week mission projects in three different countries. We are eager to see how these experiences have shaped them – and will shape their ministry here on campus.

My husband, Henry, recently finished his ministry internship with our Ryerson U Team. Now he is praying about starting a Power to Change group at the University of Toronto – Scarborough campus. Please pray for him as he considers this calling. It will require him to raise more financial support to fund its start-up.

During the remaining months of my maternity leave, I am also continuing my studies. When completed, this training will certify me as a biblical counselor. When you are involved in university based ministry, learning never stops!

Thank you again for your encouragement and prayers. May the Lord bless your outreach ministry too!
