Please help me remain faithful to You and always put You first in my life. Thank You for Your incredible love for me. Help me love You more each day.

Wanda Shipman needs a ride to a doctor’s appointment (3:30 p.m.) in Saskatoon on Tuesday, April 1. If you can give her one, please contact the church office.

“On January 19, Randy and three of his fellow students graduated from Teen Challenge. The ceremony was inspirational, and all who attended rejoiced with these men as they shared the way God has transformed their lives over the past year. Randy shared that it had been his sister who told him about Teen Challenge and that he had been so afraid upon arriving. But after seeing the love of Christ in both the staff and students, he knew this rehab was different. Ten days into the program, he fell to his knees and gave his life to the Lord. His desire is to live the Word and spread the Good News to everyone he meets. Something deep inside of him changed, and the empty void was immediately filled. Randy expressed his

deep gratitude to his sponsors, staff, interns, and fellow students for all their support expressed over the last year and closed by singing a beautiful song called “Who Am I?” by Casting Crowns. Randy will be starting an internship at Teen Challenge. He is looking forward to giving back to the ministry that helped change his life. In conjunction with his internship, Randy will also be attending Bible college on a part-time basis. Please pray that he will continue to put God first and that he will remain strong in the Lord as he makes this transition in his life. Friends at Community Baptist Church, thank you for touching the lives of these men in such a remarkable way through your prayers and financial support.”

Lloyd Swanson has to remove his old furniture from his house this week. If you need furniture or know anyone who does, please give him a call (7732405) and arrange to take a look. It would be available free or cheap! Whatever isn’t spoken for will have to be removed and taken somewhere by the end of the week (not sure where yet!). If you (or your truck!) could help with moving the furniture, please contact Lloyd or the church office. Thank you so much to all who have already volunteered to help with a meal to bless our engaged couples at the Alpha pre-marriage course Pastor Joell will be doing with them. We

have all the meals looked after but could use one or two more volunteers to help with the Sunday, March 16 meal. Because it’s a Country Church night, that meal will be served at 5:00 p.m. We need a few more billets! We need to billet 10 Teen Challenge students on Saturday night, March 29. They are ministering at our church on Sunday, March 30. If you would like to get involved in any type of ministry (helping with music, ushering, leading a care group, children’s ministry, visitation, sound system, etc., etc.), please feel free to contact the church office anytime. We’d love to hear from you!
