Candy Packing Today after the Morning Worship Service, we hope to pack several candy bags as we prepare for the Halloween Supercharged Event. If you could stay and help with this project, speak with Pastor Cymone this morning. Thank you.

Men’s Breakfast will take place this Saturday morning at 8:30am. Men of all ages are invited to join us as we consider the Background Brothers whose made a quite but powerful difference in the growth of the early church. Bring a friend to this inspiring time of fellowship and learning.

38th Anniversary Worship & Potluck Lunch will take place next Sunday, October 28th. See the insert in today’s bulletin to learn more. We anticipate a great day of celebration and sharing.

Halloween Supercharged will take place here in our church parking lot and gym on Halloween night (October 31st) from 5pm until 8pm. Thank you, in advance, for making a candy donation for this outreach ministry. A few more volunteers are needed to assist with this carnival-style event. Speak with Pastor Cymone today to learn how you can help.

Christmas Cards will soon be available for purchase from Gloria Pickersgill. She will sell various cards in packages of 5 (with envelopes) for $10 per package.

Matagalpa, Nicaragua

Missionaries Ryan & Sarah Schmitz serve as Global Partners in Matagalpa. They wrote this week with another update…

Dear Milliken Church Family,

Torrential rains have pounded Nicaragua this week, flooding communities and sending thousands out of their ruined homes. Four of our churches (Los Laureles, Cristo Rey, San Juan de la Pliwood and Tierra Prometida) opened their doors and are serving as shelters for their communities. These churches have concrete floors because teams from North America have come during recent years, and poured each one!

How could we have known that these acts of service would create safe space for hundreds of people during this season of disaster? We are thankful to be working alongside pastors and lay-leaders who love their neighbours, even as they themselves are suffering. It is an incredible testimony to God’s faithfulness, grace and strength at work. He calls and sustains His servant leaders.

Generous donations from the Nicaragua Compassion Fund, and the NiCE Foundation – which you have packaged meals with – have delivered pounds of food, as well as boxes of clothes, bedding, baby layettes and other supplies that have become desperately needed. Our Nicaraguan church feels very supported, as does our family.

Continue to pray for Nicaragua as more rain is expected this week, and there is a lack of potable water. The country is also in its sixth month of daily protests, arrests, boycotts, strikes, job losses, social unrest, and tragic deaths. Pray for the safety of our family as we minister and travel between cities. Your encouraging messages, and prayers continue to move the mission forward. Thank you.

– Ryan, Sarah, Micah, Eva, Abel & Esme Schmitz
