Fall “Connections” 2016

Our Fall “Connections” evening, to be held on Tuesday, October 25th at 6:30 pm, will feature our tradition homemade soup and dessert buffets.

Award winning writer, editor and communications consultant Patricia Paddey will be our guest speaker. Patricia has co-authored the book, “the GAME changers”, with Dr. Jean Chamberlain Froese, Order of Canada winner and internationally recognized expert in women’s health. In it, Patricia tells many of the stories of the Save the Mothers Canadian-Ugandan Partnership Programme that has been established to help prevent the unnecessary deaths of thousands of mothers and babies each year.

We will be challenged and encouraged by Patricia’s presentation, “You Can Be A Game Changer Too”. The book will be available that evening for $20. Patricia will be happy to autograph your copy. All proceeds will go to Save the Mothers. Patricia will accept cash or a cheque made out to Save the Mothers.

The evening will also include a special feature. Plan now to share it with friends or co-workers. Don’t miss this time of inspiration and warm fellowship.

Don’t Miss Spring “Connections”

Ladies and Teen Girls, mark your calendars now for our “Connections” Spring Buffet Supper at 6:30 on Tuesday, May 3rd.  We will be welcoming    Majestic Worship and   Elizabeth Pierce to this evening of encouragement and friendship.  Elizabeth’s topic is “Where is God When I Need Him?”

Majestic Worship has been ministering in worship & inspirational dance since 2007, under the leadership of Ann-Marie Smith.  The group is comprised of members from five different churches. Majestic Worship has performed numerous times at Kingsview and we look forward to their creative contribution to our evening.

Elizabeth Pierce’s life goal has always been to “make a difference” in this world, using the gifts and talents God has given her.  She is a wife, mother of two, author and a clinical social worker by profession, providing individual, couple, family and group counselling to children, youth and adults since 1996.  Elizabeth has given workshops on parenting and self-esteem in the secular community, in addition to being a speaker at church, women’s ministry meetings and retreats across Ontario.  Most importantly, Elizabeth is tenderly, yet passionately, pursued every day by a loving God and wants to ensure that everyone else understands that they are too.

Plan now to attend and to bring others with you to enjoy this evening planned just for you.
