MWMC This Week – Mar 17, 2024

March 17, 2024Let’s Revitalize, 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

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: No Fellowship after service 

Today’s fellowship in the gym is cancelled to allow ample time for the voting process. We apologize for any inconvenience. We will make it up to you next Sunday.


Approximately 2 years ago, Pastor Eddie answered the call to serve as our Senior Pastor which expires March 31, 2024. Voting will take place in the sanctuary TODAY, Sunday, March 17, 2024 immediately following the morning service to determine if Pastor Eddie will be called to serve an additional 4 years up to March 31, 2028. Absentee ballots are now due for them to be counted.


Our online Bible study will take a Lent break for 2 weeks so we can focus on Lent and Holy Week activities. There will be no Bible study on March 20 and 27. We will resume on April 3 (Wednesday). Thank you!


Join us during Holy Week for the following services:

Palm Sunday- March 24 @10:10 am (GenNow Team will lead Service).

Maundy Thursday Service- Thursday, March 28 @ 7:00pm.


Good Friday Service – Friday, March 29 @ 10:00 am.

Best Year’s Fellowship ANNOUNCEMENT 

Best Year’s Fellowship is coming up this Tuesday, March 19, at 10.30 am TOPIC – SLIP AND FALL. FROM CARE FIRST. THIS IS A REPEAT OF the topic that was slotted for JAN.16.  Due to poor weather that prohibited people from turning out on that day, we are offering information on this topic once again. PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS.

Lenten Mid-Week (Mid-Day) Service

We have started an additional Lenten Mid-Week Service on Wednesday afternoons at 1 pm. It will be an hour of time of worship focusing on preparation towards the Holy Week. It will be the same as the one taking place in the evening.

Chinese-English Corner

Next Chinese Class will be today March 17 at 6:30 pm. If you are interested and would like to join, please reach out to Pastor Aza or Bro. Chris and we will get you connected with our Zoom Link.

Ministry at Willowdale Welcome Centre 

We have been afforded the opportunity to minister through Worship and the Word at Willowdale Welcome Centre Wednesday mornings from 10:00 am-11:30 am.  If you are available and would like to serve in this capacity, please contact Pastor Eddie or Pastor Aza for more information. 

GenNow 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.


Our finance team has sent out all tax receipts by email. If you have not received that email, have problem accessing it, or need a printed copy, please get in touch with Brother Stefan Southwell. For those whom we do not have your email, the printed receipts are being distributed today.

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.

First Series for 2024: Revitalization

We encourage our families to go further for 2024 in revitalizing our faith, our families, and our church. Visit our Revitalization Resource Page at

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!

For more information, please visit for details on these areas of service.

Weekday Podcast: 4:19 Fisher of People

Pastor Eddie hosts a weekday podcast called “Fisher of People”. He will be LIVE on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter every Weekday at 4:19 pm to help us focus on becoming dynamic Disciples of Jesus, and how we can lead others to follow Him. Subscribe to our YouTube channel or follow our Facebook and Twitter, and you will be notified when he goes LIVE. Tune in for his refreshing thoughts.

Prayer Requests

Our Prayer group is asking everyone who has prayer needs to put their requests in the prayer request box so that they will be remembered in our weekly prayer meeting. We are here to pray with you and for you. May the Lord encourage you to bring your requests to his alter in Jesus name.

Share Your Testimony 

Sharing your experience of how God is present in your life, and the peace that you have found in Christ can encourage others to share their testimony. If you are interested in sharing your testimony during a Sunday Service, please feel free to contact Pastor Eddie or call the Milliken Church at (905) 475-3579 so that we can plan accordingly.

Tithes and Offerings

Tithes and Offerings can be submitted in person or online. If you would like to arrange a personal drop-off aside from Sundays during services, please call (905) 475-3579. Please make an appointment before a drop-off is made to ensure someone will be present to receive it. Leave a message and someone will confirm your arrangements.
