   Summer Giving – For those who are looking for a way to give to the mission of Whyte Ridge Baptist Church while on vacation this summer, visit our new ‘Ways to Give’ page – where you can find out how you give to our General Fund, Benevolent Fund, Building Fund and Missions Fund in the form of a single gift or as a recurring gift online, through direct withdrawal or by other means.

Right Now Media Now Available for FREE to All Whyte Ridge Baptist Church attendees – As was mentioned during Pastor Doug’s message a few weeks back, Right Now Media is an online service that contains hundreds of family-friendly videos, as well as a large collection of Bible Studies and resources.  To request your FREE membership to this new resource in our WRBC Digital Resource Centre, please visit our online registration page.

Reminder:  One service at 10:00 a.m. from July 2 – September 10.   During the service, there will be children’s programming for ages 2 to 5 years. They will begin the service upstairs (10:00a.m.) and go down following the children’s feature at which time they will sign in. Activity sheets based on the sermon theme will be available for grades 1 to 4 at the Information Centre.  One exception – July 30 is a Family Service Sunday so there will be no programming. Nursery will include 2 year olds for this Sunday only.

Prayer Ministry:

Building Project Prayer Requests:

  • Steinbach Credit Union has approved our request for financing in support of our building project. Praise God for this positive result, which is another major step towards our goal.
  • Letters have been sent to four local congregations who had previously expressed an interest in purchasing our current property. We expect to receive their proposals over the summer and make decisions on this in the fall. As this process unfolds, please pray for positive outcomes that will be God-honouring.

Child Evangelism Fellowship Fundraising Dinner – Friday, August 25; 6:30-8:00p.m. Register online here.

Jesus calls his followers to be salt and light to the world (Matthew 5:13-16). We seek to live as His faithful servants and be agents of His transforming presence in our society and the world. Evangelicals engage in all areas of life as part of our witness, and we want to be obedient to God in the pursuit of justice and care for the vulnerable.   One of the ways we do this is to learn about key issues facing our culture, and think through how biblical principles apply in these areas.  A way to do so is to join the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada‘s email list or to browse through their resource database containing hundreds of topics online.
