District Conference Update Printed updates and reports from our recent District Conference have been printed and can be picked up from the Information Desk. Please be sure to read the two reports from our Milliken Church delegates: Philip Farrell, Marjorie Stephenson, along with Pastors Axel & Cymone. They represented us well at this inspiring time of worship, training and business.

First Friday Prayer Vigil We invite you to pray for the several church plants in our province. Pick up a prayer slip from the back Sanctuary table today so that you will know how to pray more effectively. Thank you.

Summer Prayer Walk We will make our annual journey through the immediate neighborhood on Sunday, July 14th. Please plan to wear comfortable walking shoes to church on this great day of spiritual outreach.

Thunder Bay

Pastor Nathan Maskery wrote this week to share an update on the ministry of Transformation Wesleyan Church…

Dear Milliken Church Family,

Things are going great here in Thunder Bay. One of the things Jesus specifically told us to pray for was more workers. This is a prayer we have seen God answer. In the last two weeks, we have added two new people to our team. Shauna Grimwood graduated from Kingswood University in 2017 and has joined our team as the Youth & Children’s Minister. She has a passion to reach and disciple young people in their relationship with Christ.

Jeremy Darrow also recently joined us. He came to Thunder Bay with our launch team in the summer and fall of 2017. Last week, Jeremy he moved here and has already been out in the streets sharing the love of Jesus and praying with people!

One thing we need support with is our balcony. We are growing numerically and need to install a railing around the balcony so that it meets safety codes before we allow people to sit up there. We raised $15,000 and have ordered the plexiglass for installation. But now we need to hire a professional installation crew to do the job. This will require another $4,500. Please pray with us about this. And if you feel inspired – give!

We are excited to see God working in the lives of people He is drawing into our church. Thank you for your ongoing prayers and partnership!

Pastor Nathan Maskery
