A Note from Pastor Ryan
 
Hello Church family,

 

As many of you may have heard, the Alberta government and health services have announced the closing of schools and have extended the direction to cancel group gatherings to include places of worship.  In keeping with these recommendations we will be cancelling all gatherings at Wainwright Nazarene indefinitely.   Of course this means that we will not be holding worship services on site on Sunday mornings or other mid-week group gatherings until we receive direction that it is safe to resume normal operations.

 

In the meantime here are a few items that we are working on:

  • We are working on a live-stream service option that will allow us to join in worship as a church family starting this Sunday March 22nd.  Look above on Sunday for the link to join in for morning worship Sundays @ 10:10 AM
  • There are a variety of resources available for you for home devotions, worship and study.  During these days, it is important to take time to worship and seek God’s direction.  Here are a couple of good daily devotional links for you to try:
  • A good resource for the season of Lent

  • Our Daily Bread

  • Please remember to spend time in prayer for our world and one another.  We will continue to send out our mid-week church prayer update and also encourage you to participate in our daily prayer challenge.  You can find the prayer challenge booklet here on our website to your left under People who Pray.
  • Continue to give tithes and offerings to God.  Giving is an act of worship and as we are tempted to hold back for ourselves during these uncertain days, when we give to God we acknowledge that we ultimately find our sustenance and provision in him, tangibly trusting in God during the uncertain days we face.  You can drop your tithe off at the church office during weekdays or you may choose to e-transfer your tithe to the following address:  

hmnazchurch@gmail.com

 

If you e-transfer please indicate in the message who is giving the e-transfer and use the password tithe

Please call or email the church if you have questions regarding giving.

 
  • We encourage families to go to the Children’s ministry tab for weekly Sunday School materials to use with your families at home.
  • Youth Group is happening on-line as well.  Join with us on Instagram for on-line youth.  For dates and times go to the youth tab.
 
 
As we face the new reality of these days, we can take heart and be encouraged.  We remember that the body of Christ is not limited by working only within the walls of the church building or when we gather as a group.  The church of Jesus Christ is always at its best and fulfilling its mission as it works in the world.  We have such tremendous opportunities before us to be the church, the manifest presence of God in his world. Pray for creative ways in which you might be used as part of the mobilized body of Christ this week.  Here are just a few thoughts:

 

  1.  Pray for one another.

 

  1.  Take some time to call your neighbours and be a calming voice and peaceful presence.  Especially think of the elderly and shut in population who may feel even more isolated these days.

 

  1.  Help deliver groceries to those who are vulnerable or who can’t get out. Contact the church if you would be available to help or if you are in need of some assistance in this area.

 

  1.  Consider a Wainwright Food Bank donation this week.  Remember that there are many people dealing with employment disruptions due to containment efforts and who will be needing to access community resources such as the food bank.

 

Here is an excerpt from our Prayers of the People this past Sunday: 

“Oh Lord We ask that you pull back the veil and open our eyes to possibilities that exist-to serve, to help, to be a voice of peace and comfort, to be the manifestation of your presence in the world.”  
 
May it be so as we live as the body of Christ in our community this week.

Grace and Peace to you WainNaz church family,

 

Pastor Ryan
