Summer Prayer Walk Today we will make our annual journey through the immediate neighborhood to pray for, greet and invite any we may have the privilege to meet. We hope you have arrived here at church with your comfortable walking shoes on. We anticipate a great time of spiritual outreach and encouragement.

Youth Spaghetti Lunch Fundraiser After the service today, our teens invite you to stay and purchase lunch. All funds collected will help cover the costs for our students’ attendance at the Wesleyan Youth Convention this December in Cincinnati.

Decorating Day This Saturday we are seeking help for our extensive VBS decorating. Could you offer an hour or two of assistance? Speak with Pastor Cymone to learn more. This is a simple but important way to participate in our ministry to children.

Vacation Bible School 2019 will take place on the evenings of July 21st through 25th. Children ages 3 to 11 are encouraged to attend and bring friends. There will also be an enrichment class for parents each evening! This program will be a joint venture with the Tamil Christian Church. Register today at the Information Desk.

MidWeek Mission Meeting On Wednesday, July 31st, Pastor Nathan Maskery from Transformation Wesleyan Church is coming to visit us. He will share a special presentation at 7:15pm in the Fellowship Room. Please mark your calendar now and come to learn how God is transforming lives in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Markham Pregnancy Centre

We recently received an update from this local compassionate ministry…

Dear Milliken Wesleyan Methodist Church,

Last month we all celebrated Father’s Day and we have heard that your celebration was amazing! On that day we were reminded of the common misconception that our centre is only interested in the well-being of distressed new mothers. While it is true that the majority of our clients are mothers, we want to ensure that fathers also see us as a place where they will receive support and encouragement in their situations too.

Having served on the Pregnancy Centre Board this past year has opened my eyes to all of the resources this ministry offers, and all of the needs it meets: practical and emotional! Our amazing staff and volunteers walk with many people on their journey from family crisis to thriving next steps. Their service reminds me of the God described in Psalm 46. One person has said, “The quality of a father can be seen in the goals, dreams and aspirations he sets not only for himself, but for his family.” We all have big aspirations for our children as new and expecting parents, but those goals and dreams often take a back seat to the new routines of parenting life. If you know someone in need, refer them to our Centre. We would be honoured by the opportunity to provide care, encouragement and support that may be needed.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Markham Pregnancy Centre. Have a safe and fun-filled summer!

With grace and love,

Jason Santiago

Treasurer of the MPC Board
