Thank You to everyone who assisted with the Halloween Supercharged Event last Wednesday evening. We estimate that well over 250 people passed through the building for the activities and fun. Let us pray that this will continue to open doors for the Gospel in our neighbourhood.

Youth Room Remodeling Project Can you help us financially with this important ministry project? We invite you to take one of the giving tabs (found on the poster outside the Youth Room door) in an envelope with your donation. Place this gift in the offering and you will be part of the remodeling work! Thank you for your generosity toward this great project.

Chinese Culture: An Introductory Workshop will take place this Saturday morning, November 10th at 10am. Johnson Hsu of International Student Ministries Canada will lead this interesting presentation. All who attend are also invited to join us at a local Chinese restaurant following the seminar at noon. Speak with Pastor Cymone to learn more.

Christmas Banquet Tickets are now on sale in the foyer. Please join us and bring a friend to this evening of celebration and great food.

Christmas Cards can now be ordered for purchase from Gloria Pickersgill. Choose your favourite scene and order them in packages of 5 (with envelopes) for $10. Thank you for your support in this fundraising project.

Centennial Armistice Day Next Sunday in worship we will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. We encourage you to invite any family member or friend who has served in the armed forces. Our time of remembering will include sacred words of gratitude and hope in God for abiding peace.

Toronto, Ontario

Revs. David & Olivia Phillips are building relationships with residents in the Bloordale Village neighborhood of Toronto. They wrote this week with an exciting update…

Dear Milliken Church Friends,

Last Saturday we hosted our first “event” for friends and neighbours. It started at 11am and continued until 7pm. Everyone was very impressed. Those who came asked us to do more events in the future. More importantly, everyone at the event is following us on Twitch, where we are leading Bible studies, as well as following our other social media platforms. We were also able to enter into conversations about faith with four different people. Each conversation lasted about an hour.

Afterwards, we were invited to go to dinner with the players and asked to connect and meet up with them in November. This is a huge first step! We have filled the role of creating a “community” that we wanted. People are embracing and interested in the fact that Waypoint is a church for gamers. While all are still quite a ways from knowing Christ, the fact that they are following us on social media, and want to connect more is huge in the gamer community – which is normally skeptical of any church.

We will be following up with people later this week and inviting them to an on-location Bible study in November and December. In the meantime, they will track with us on Twitch for our online Bible study. Thank you for your interest, prayers and support.

– Dave & Olivia
