Sunday School at 9 am
Adult Sunday School Class in the Overflow Room
Do you want to have a fuller understanding of what we, as evangelical Christians believe, and how that can, and should, impact our daily lives? What does
the whole Bible teach us today? UBC is starting an introductory class on systematic theology and reviewing various biblical doctrines. Knowing what we
believe is part of the great commission (Matt.28:19-20) to "....teaching them
to observe all that I have commanded you." The framework basis of the class
will be Dr. Wayne Grudem's Introduction to Systematic Theology. Randy Matthys and John Howarth will be leading. This Sunday we will be starting with
"The Word of God" and the week after will be the "Canon of Scripture" and
continuing on. If God has been prompting you to learn more of what you
believe then this is the class for you!
Children’s Sunday School in the Lower Hall
Do you want to learn more about Paul and his miraculous conversion? Come
to our children’s Sunday School classes and engage in learning more about
Paul and how his life can impact our’s. We would love to study God’s Word
with you!
Avalanche/Blizzard Update
January 16th – 18th & January 30th - February 1st
As the students come together in the Greater Community
of Believers from across Ontario and Quebec we ask you to
pray for the following things:
 Safety & good health
 Open hearts, eyes and attitudes
 For drivers, leaders, Pastors, CBOQ staff, the students, worship
leaders and speakers
 Seeds to be planted and God’s will to be done
 An understanding for the students that they were created to belong,
build their lives on His foundation, connect with others and grow in
relationships and their faith
UBC, thank you for your faithfulness.
Mission News
Morningstar (Beijing, China) Team
A team of ladies will be travelling to Beijing, China on February 16th and returning March 1st. Morningstar Family Home is a small foster home in Beijing
that cares for critically ill orphans, primarily with heart defects. The team will
provide loving care to these precious children as the regular staff at Morningstar will travel to their homes for the Chinese New Year holiday.
The team is collecting supplies to take with them. If you would like to donate,
there will be a donation box near the mailboxes until February 8th.
Supplies for babies:
diaper cream
liquid multi vitamins
vitamin k
eczema lotion
fever reducer (liquid)
Aquafor - vaseline like
coconut oil
crib sheets
nuk soother
bottles and nipples
hand sanitizer
The team would really like to take special gifts for the nannies. They have had
a very difficult year with the passing of one baby before Christmas and another going to hospice last week because nothing more could be done. Many
babies have left this past year to go to their forever homes and even though
this is a good thing, it is still very difficult for the nannies. There are 12 nannies.
Some gift ideas for Nannies are:
small - medium tops
makeup
body lotion
face cream
lipstick
gloves
scarves
socks
good water bottles
reusable grocery bag
We would also like to take a double stroller with us if anyone happens to have
one in excellent used condition that they would like to donate!
Also, the house manager at Morningstar, Jenny, would like gospel tracts to
hand out if anyone would like to help in this way.
If you have any questions, please call Kimberly at 905-852-4151
Thank you so much,
Kim Miller and the Morningstar team

Small Groups
The Best Yes
This DVD series by Lysa Terkeurst is subtitled Making Wise Decisions in the
Midst of Endless Demands. It tackles time management, over commitment
and the "disease to please" with wisdom from Scripture. Lysa teaches us
how to apply the Bible to our daily lives in a transparent, timely way, as we
choose what and when to say Yes or No.
The Family Project – Part 2
The Family Project is a small-group study that will reveal God’s true nature
and intent for our families and renew faith in God’s design through the power
of everyday families living in God’s grace and truth – even in the messy brokenness of this life. This study began in the fall session of Celebration. You
can easily join the group without having seen the first videos.
The Get Yourself Organized Project
This group is for those who want to spend their time living and enjoying life
rather than organizing their sock drawer. It will look at simple and manageable long-term solutions for organizing any room in one's home (and keeping
it that way); strategies for efficient shopping, meal preparation, and cleaning.
There will be hands on aspects to this group. The strategies will be drawn
from 2 books by Kathi Lipp.
