Exciting News For The Fall Season

Posted by: Pastor Keith Smith

Hi Church Family,

We are preparing for a very exciting fall season! Here is some of what I am talking about:

On the September 19/20 weekend services, we will welcome our new Co-Pastor, Jonathan Smith. Pastor Jonathan and Shelley have been able to help the deacons at Evangel Church in Montreal bring

in a new pastor to succeed them. They will also return to Montreal for the dedication of the majorly renovated facility they have led them into building. Their oldest son, Calum, will continue his degree program at the University of Ottawa, and Keenan will be entering his last year of high school here in Agincourt. We have some exciting years ahead reaching and discipling people for Jesus!

On the September 26/27 weekend, over 60 people will be baptized to declare publicly that they are living their lives with Jesus as their Lord! If you choose to join them, please attend one of the water baptism classes on either Sunday, September 13 at 9am or Tuesday, September 15 at 7pm. If you are a student, younger than 16, please attend the 9am class this Sunday, September 6 in Room 211.

These weekend services will be a Year of Invitation opportunity. Not only will we hear of how Jesus has changed all of these people’s lives, but then Pastor Jonathan’s message will give others an opportunity to say “yes” to Jesus’ love and life.

On Saturday, September 12 at 9 am, it’s Training Day. If you are a volunteer, we want to inspire and equip you for a great new season of ministry. To register visit Kiosk B after the service, or online at www.apchurch.com/trainingcamp 

We're in for a great fall season!

New Series Starting Next Week

Posted by: Pastor Keith Smith

I'm starting a new series this fall and I’m very excited about how it will help you personally, and us as a church!

Picture this – Joshua and God’s people are poised along the Jordan River and they are about to go into the territory God has promised to them; they have prepared themselves to go there for decades.

Joshua says it well, “You’ve never been this way before.”

So, what is new territory in your life?  Where would you go if God had His way?  Maybe it is scary; or a big challenge.  Yet, you know God wants it to happen in your Christian future.

The series starts next weekend, on August 22/23.  Let’s go where we’ve never gone before!

PS.from PS:  you can help me with this series by sharing specific examples of what is a new territory for you.  Please go to https://www.facebook.com/apchurch

Water Baptism Weekend

Posted by: Pastor Keith Smith

“Jesus gave His all for me.  I have made a decision to live my life for Him.”

That is why a person is water baptized.  It is an outward declaration of an inward event.

2 questions for you, then?

  1. Have you made a decision to live your life for Jesus?
  2. Have you been water baptized to outwardly declare what you’ve already decided in your heart?

On September 26/27, people like you are going to be baptized in water, in all 3 weekend services.

In preparation, we are holding 2 classes:

  • Sunday, September 13, 9:00am to 10:30am
  • Tuesday, September 15, 7:00pm to 8:30pm

If you have not yet been water baptized and would like more information, please plan to attend one of these two classes.
