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 who enter this kingdom. We pray that you will experience the fullness He offers as you worship with us today.

Ryerson Universtiy

We recently received an update from Evangelist Jessica Barnett, who serves with Power to Change Ministries on the campus of Ryerson University…

Dear Milliken Church Family,

A few weeks ago we hosted our Fall Retreat. 139 students attended. The theme was “Welcome” and it included a number of non-Christians. I greeted two Iranian girls there who recently came to Canada and wanted to experience Canadian culture while attending Ryerson. Pray that every conversation we shared with these students will draw them closer to Jesus and the great good He offers them.

Our discipleship groups are now running regularly. Our group includes three co-leaders and 10 students. We are going through a book called Everyday Church. We pray that this group of believing students will grow in relationship and go on mission together! We also want them to boldly bring their non-Christian friends into our gatherings so that they will also experience God’s love and hope.

Finally, let me ask you to pray specifically for two girls I now counsel. Tiff struggles with God’s grace and forgiveness because of her ongoing battle with sin. Pray that the Lord will give her encouragement and grace to overcome temptation. Thea struggles with spiritual apathy. She wants to grow strong as a Christian but does not order her daily priorities to include God. Pray that desire for the Lord will increase in all areas of her life.

Thank you for remembering me – as well as these young people. It is not easy to grow in Christian faith when the environment around you remains against such expressions. But we are grateful for your ongoing partnership to help bring Christ to the young people here on our campus!

God bless you all.

– Jessica
