MWMC This Week – Jan 21, 2024

January 21, 2023 Happy New Year, Milliken!

13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: he has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. -1 John 4:13-16

Ontario Family Day is February 19, 2024.  To celebrate,  we will have a special Family Day service on Sunday, February 18.  This will feature our Generation Now group, which includes our children, youth and young adults.  To prepare for this day, Pastor Aza would like to meet with parents, children, youth and young adults immediately after this morning service briefly to discuss this day.

Youth Outreach Event- Saturday, July 13, 2024

Save The Date! Milliken will be hosting an Outreach event to our community on Saturday, July 13, 2024.  The purpose is to connect with the people in our community that will be spearheaded by Generation Now (our children, youth and young adults).  We will need several volunteers to help plan and prepare for this event.  Please see Pastor Aza or Pastor Eddie if you would like to sign up to help.

Men’s Breakfast

Our men are once again meeting for our men to fellowship as they feed their body and their soul. Meeting will be on Saturday, January 27, 2024 at 8:30 am. Please contact Pastor Stephen if you would like more information.

Midtown Wesleyan Fellowship Launch!

We are happy to announce that a new church is being planted in the Toronto Area!  Our dear brother in Christ, Pastor Chuck Ampaguey will be starting this new church plant in East York under the name Midtown Wesleyan Fellowship!  Pastor Chuck will lead this mission with his wife Lily and some of our dear brothers and sisters in Christ to launch the first service in February!  In honour of our family members who will help launch this church and to give them support, there will be two events we would like for you to put on your calendars:

  1. Sunday, January 28, 2024-Join us for a special “Family Day” service and special celebration in the gym to follow here at Milliken, to offer a special blessing over the team who will launch this church plant.
  2. Sunday, February 4, 2024-Midtown Wesleyan Fellowship will officially launch its first service, starting at 2:00pm.  Milliken Church will offer support by joining our brothers and sisters in worship.  Therefore, there will be NO fellowship in the gym after service at Milliken on this day, HOWEVER, WE WILL FELLOWSHIP AT MIDTOWN WESLEYAN FELLOWSHIP, FOLLOWING THE AFTERNOON SERVICE.  AS MANY OF YOU WHO ARE ABLE, MAKE A PLAN TO COME WORSHIP AND CELEBRATE WITH OUR FAMILY ON THIS DAY!

Lead “Family” Open Invitation

As the past year has unbelievably come to a close, we need a new round of “Leading Families” for our Family Sundays. As you might have noticed, we are looking for family units, meaning you may not have to be related by blood, but by association, also. Even if you have participated before, we welcome your participation. Please contact Pastor Stephen to let him know your availability so that we can plan for 2024.

Kitchen Renovation Fundraising Update

Thank you for everyone’s continual faithful giving toward our Kitchen Renovation Project. We have now raised an additional $ 135 toward the Project which brings the total to $7,540.

Membership Class

Membership Class will take place the first week of March, and we are opening it to members of our congregation to join the few who has already signed up. Please contact Pastor Eddie to join.

Worship Arts Team – We Want Your Help!

Have you been looking for a way to serve?  Our Worship Arts team needs you!  We are looking for servant leaders who are willing to serve on our Sunday Morning Worship  and Audio Visual Teams.  If you have the ability to sing, play an instrument (any instrument), or would like to learn how to serve in the Sound booth to learn various skills including sound board training, video/camera operation and working with Worship Tools to present words and scripture on the screen for worship service, please see Pastor Aza or Brother Chris.

Here are 3 reasons why you should join:

  1. A place to develop your gifts and be equipped to serve.
  2. Wonderful team of believers who support each other and pray for each other.
  3. Youth Alert! If you are looking to gain credits toward your volunteer service, this is a great way for you to earn those credits!
