Season of Kingdomtide

During these weeks the Church around the world celebrates the coming of God’s kingdom on earth. The colour green on our altar reminds us that the Lord brings growth, health, and fullness of life to all enter this kingdom. We pray that you will experience the fullness He offers as you worship with us today.

Toronto, Ontario

This past week Pastors David & Olivia Phillips sent a thank you note, and an update on their efforts to plant a new church in the Bloorview Village neighborhood of Toronto…

Dear Milliken Church Family,

What a blessing you have been to our family.  Thank you for the gifts and food and welcome that you gave us in the baby shower for our newborn son, Tristan.  He will be well clothed, and fed and diapered for many months because of you!  And thank you for the scheduling this event while Olivia’s parents could be here to attend.  It was a blessing beyond measure to share this with them too.  We greatly appreciate your continuing expressions of love, community and support.

Let us also share a word about the progress of Waypoint: we hosted our first live event in mid-July.  It was a board game night.  Our weekly Scripture studies began the very next week.  We are now renting a space in “The Commons Theatre & Studio” on College Street near the intersection with Bathurst Street.  Please pray for  a great relationship with our hosts, and good recognition in the community.

Please also continue to pray for the family affected by addiction that we have been coming to our meetings.

May God continue to break chains of addiction and anxiety in their lives.

– Olivia & David
