Community Breakfast
Our first community breakfast for the new season was held on
Saturday morning, October 4th. We are pleased to report that the
proceeds enabled us to make a contribution to the church’s
ministries in the amount of approx. $900. Additionally, we were able
to host the Youth Impact project Ride-for-Refuge on that day as well,
and a considerable number of the cyclists partook of the breakfast
under the sponsorship of Southampton Computers. They were able
to raise approx. $14,000 for their work with vulnerable & at-risk
youth in our community. A great big THANK YOU to all those who
assisted in any way with set-up, cooking, serving, cleaning, etc. We
are currently planning the next scheduled breakfast for Saturday,
November 1st. We would be pleased for the assistance of anyone
able and willing to help in any way at the breakfasts; either Friday
evening set-up, Saturday morning cooking/serving, bussing tables,
or clean-up following the breakfast; by contacting Faye @ 388-1420
Looking ahead … JUST FRIENDS will be providing musical
entertainment at the November 1st breakfast; and during the
breakfast on December 6th we will be hosting the Atlantic Canada
Highland Dancing competitions.
Praise God for His faithfulness!

Into the Word…
Sermon: God Saves!
Exodus 14:13-31
• Some see the salvation of others as a personal responsibility.
• God saves at just the right time.
• Memory of Joseph faded and Hebrews became enslaved in E gypt.
• Israelite population swelled, perceived as a threat to Egyptians.
1) God Sees
(Exodus 2:24f, 3:7ff)
• Often those oppressed don’t rock the boat.
• People ask, ‘Is God blind?’ ‘Why does He allow…?’
• At the birth of Christ a similar situation existed. God’s concern is more
than the external obvious hards hips we endure.
2) God Calls
(Exodus 3:1-4:17)
• As His followers, we are all called and commissioned. (See Matt.28:19).
• We are resistant and make excuses. Yet when faithful considered
beautiful in God’s sight (See Isaiah 52:7, 2 Corinthians 5:20).
• None of us are perfect; Moses wasn’t either.
• God puts us in close contact with others on purpose.
3) God Saves
(Exodus 14:13-15)
• Moses comes to see it is God who saves, not him.
• While God does the saving, His people are called to move in fait h.
• Some of us have faced despair or journeyed with others in it. We have
seen the unmistakable hand of God providing deliverance.
• God saves at just the right time. He us es human, imperfect agents. He
calls us to move forward in faith.
• Many refuse to embrace His salvation, choosing to grumble at God.
• God has placed you in the presenc e of others to lead them out of their
captivity, but ultimately God does the saving at just the right time.
…So the Word can get into you!
Autumn Blessings
Autumn brings to the soul relief,
as hot Summer days, slip to an end
God sent the season for weary hearts
to restore, repair and mend.
Unlike the Autumn trees,
that shed their changing leaves
God sent the season for failing hearts
to adhere, embrace and cleave.
Just as with the Autumn winds,
there comes a new refreshing rain
God sent the season for fraying hearts
to increase, grow and gain.
The Autumn sun is slow to climb,
and dips much earlier into the night
God sent the season for sleepy hearts
to rise, shine and awake in His light.
God gave to us the Autumn season,
so we could have a respite and rest
for it is the season for our beset souls
to see how much we are blessed!
~Deborah Ann Belka
