IN THE COMING WEEKS 

1.  Vacation Bible Camp 2019: We are back! Energy and enthusiasm renewed! Venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive.  Anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life's storms. Kings Presbyterian Church welcomes Shipwrecked, Vacation Bible Camp, July 8-12, 2019.  Mark your calendars and don't miss this exciting opportunity to be a part of this fun and energizing ministry. Your creativity, leadership, and/or donations of materials and supplies are all welcome. Volunteers Needed!!!

2.  "Infinitely More" presents The Blessings Tour - Sunday, May 26 at 6 pm at Kingsway Assembly, 242 Belcher Street, Kentville.  Tickets are $10 each.  902-678-3455

3.  St. James has been hosting an ecumenical outreach to Spanish-speaking migrant workers.  There are as many as 500 migrant workers in the Annapolis Valley between April and November. It is a great opportunity for churches to extend hospitality and the love of God. St. James is hosting this but if the needs of the workers would be better served (geographically, etc.) through another Church, we would support a move to another venue. We are stepping out simply because there is a wonderful opportunity to extend Christian Hospitality to others, many of whom are fellow Christians!  After several planning meetings and two gatherings with migrant workers, this is the plan for the way forward - The gatherings will take place every two weeks at 3 PM at St. James, Kentville Upper Hall.  Upcoming Meetings through June - May 26, June 9 & June 23.  Overall, the migrant workers would enjoy fellowship together and get to know some Canadians and enjoy the mingling of cultures!

This outreach needs - People with a basic understanding of Spanish to work in small groups with the workers, teaching basic oral and written English. To oversee food - we anticipate some grant monies from the Anglican Diocese of NS/PEI.  TO help set up, tear down, and clean up and people with experience with Alpha to lead small groups (with a translator).  If you can help, please contact The Rev. Dr. John Roddam at john_roddam@hotmail.com

4.  Dr. Stewart Brown will be leading a seminar "The Welcoming Church" based on his book The REAL Welcoming Church: Imitating God, Thinking Like Jesus at St. James Anglican Church, 18 Prospect Avenue, Kentville on Saturday June 8th (9 AM to 4 PM). All area clergy and interested lay leaders are welcome. St. James has covered the honorarium and is offering the seminar as a gift to area churches with a voluntary free-will offering! Lunch and discussion with participants bringing a bag lunch are part of the day! St. James will provide tea, coffee, etc. for breaks and lunch.  Please register interest in the seminar by emailing The Rev. Dr. John Roddam at john_roddam@hotmail.com Registration numbers are needed in order to run off the needed manuals and plan for the day!

Dreaming of Peace

For Amina, Saber and their five children, poverty had become an all too sudden reality. When bombs fell on their town of Suran in Syria, their peaceful life shattered - their home collapsed and basic necessities like water, food and electricity became scarce. Displaced within their own country, broken by over eight years of conflict, Amina and Saber were losing hope. But for the past several months, the family has been receiving monthly food and hygiene baskets through a Presbyterian World Service & Development-supported project with Canadian Foodgrains Bank partners. Over meals of beans and rice, Amina and Saber can find a moment of comfort as they dream of peace and security for their beloved country.
