Christ the King Sunday

Today Christians around the world declare that Jesus Christ is King. He has been given a name above all others. And His Kingdom will have no end. We pray that you will choose to proclaim the ancient creed: “Jesus is Lord” as we worship this morning.

Markham Crisis Pregnancy Centre

We recently received an update on the ministry of the Markham Crisis Pregnancy Centre…

Dear Milliken Church,

Thank you for your continuing prayers and support for this local life-rescuing ministry here in Markham. God’s hand has been so evident during this current, changing season here at the centre. The past several months have become a time of staff changes and adjustments!

Sarah Rytkonen, our 5-year volunteer leader of the Moms & Tots Group has moved on to a wonderful teaching position. Melissa Julian has switched her volunteer role to now become our Administrative Assistant. And Cheryl, our current Client Services Director has been chosen, by our Board of Directors, to become our next Executive Director. Cheryl has been mentoring with me for several months. Last month she attended the national “New Directors Training” in Alberta, along with others from across Canada. This was the final piece of her equipping for the role.

The Lord has also sent us Julie Whalen, who will take up Cheryl’s current role as our Client Services Director! Praise the Lord. This means that I can now finish my incredible 28 years with this organization next month. The Lord has miraculously protected, blessed and grown our service in this community. And I am so grateful for the new team now in place. Please pray for them, encourage them and welcome them – they are such a gift!

I stand in awe of how God has woven this team and look forward to all He has in store for MSCPC in the future as He walks hand in hand with them.

With a heart full of love,

Janice Russell, Executive Director
