Sunday: Jubilee & Back to God Ministries International: Celebrating 75 years, Back to God Ministries International is the
media mission of the CRC, sharing the Gospel in communities
worldwide using media experiences online and on the air. The
goal hasn't changed for more than 70 years: seeing people's
hearts transformed by God's grace. Rev. Steve Koster, who was
a summer intern with Jubilee in 2004, leads the English ministry
ReFrame Media which offers such programs as the Today devotional guide, ThinkChristian, Under the Radar, Family Fire,
Walk the Way, and Church Juice. Ron VandenBurg joined
BTGMI as the senior producer of KidsCorner, a website and
global radio program offering Biblical messages wrapped in
fun stories. The site also has family devotions, audio Bible stories, Bible studies and family activities. See www.kidscorner.net
Next week: Jubilee & Shalom Manor & Gardens: Shalom Manor & Gardens, located in Grimsby, is a retirement residence
and nursing home, providing excellent care and community in
a Christian environment. This home was begun and is still operated by the deacons of Classis Hamilton and Niagara.

The Fall Membership Meeting will be taking place on
Thursday, November 20 at Smithville Christian High
School. New families are invited to arrive at 6:45 for a

and interaction with fellow members from 7:45 – 8:00.
Meeting highlights include election of new board members, and an update on the ‘In Motion Campaign.’ Make
sure you come out to hear how God is blessing our
school and society!

Sermon Recordings: Reminder that Jubilee's services are
streamed live on our website every Sunday morning, and
we put up permanent recordings of the sermons on our
website on Mondays. However, if you require CDs made
of the services, either consistently or as a one time thing,
you can email our Tech Coordinator at
[email protected] in order to get a CD made and left
in your mailbox by the following Sunday. (To ensure that

Care Packages for College and University Students: Today
is the final day to sign up. There will be a sign up sheet on
the table beside office. Please sign your name beside one
or more college/university student
(s). Then, by next Sunday, November 23, prepare a Christmas card
for that student and place in the
Folkerts mailbox along with $12.
We will take care of the rest. Any
questions, speak to Albert Kok or
Elza Folkerts.
Fire Drill: Following today’s service we will have a fire drill.
All public gathering places are now mandated by the fire
department to hold a fire drill. The purpose of a fire drill is
to ensure that everyone is familiar with emergency evacuation procedures, resulting in an orderly evacuation, and to
ensure that in case of a real fire the evacuation procedures
will be followed smoothly. Please take some time this week
to review the fire evacuation procedures that were emailed
to you along with the bulletin. Ushers, Nursery attendants
and Joy Jam leaders, in particular are asked to take note of
these instructions so you are aware of what actions to take
when the fire alarm is pulled.
Calling all seamstresses: Our Joy Jam Jr. ministry would
like to provide some Bible character costumes for our
younger children so that they can "dress the part" of the Bible characters that they are learning about each Sunday
morning. If you have old material that is not being used or
are willing to pull out your sewing machine and create
some fun dress‑up clothes for this ministry, please contact
Stacy Kok. Thanks.
