Introducing Team Bolivia 2017

We are excited about the team that will be going to Bolivia this summer to represent Whyte Ridge Baptist Church and Winnipeg Somang Presbyterian Church. The focus of our time is divided between the Seminary in Cochabamba and a small village called Mizque.

At the Seminary we will be engaging in discipleship conversations with the students, staff and local pastors, sharing testimony / teaching, as well as helping with on-site maintenance.

In Mizque we will be working with some Seminary students and the local church in plastering homes for protection against the disease Chagas. There will be opportunities for ministry in the village as well. If you would like to know more, feel free to ask one of the team members!

We value the prayers of our church family as we prepare to share Christ’s love and truth.

Beth Klassen*, Ashley Linklater, Melanie Friesen*, Debbie Hopkins*, Pat Janke, Joni Lee*, Shelly Cumming*, Emmie Dryjski, Kathy Kornelsen*, Kevin Klassen*, Bogdan Dryjski, Barb Morris*, Steve Morris*, Terry Janke* (those with * beside their name are going to Bolivia).

Whyte Ridge Baptist Church Weekly Update

Prayer Walk this Sunday at McGillivray Property

“When we depend upon organizations, we get what organizations can do; when we depend upon education,  we get what education can do; but when we depend upon prayer, we get what God can do.” A. C. Dixon

This Sunday we are asking our congregation to gather with us at the McGillivray property to pray specifically for God to provide a resolution for us and our neighbors (Fort Whyte Alive and Lafarge) concerning the drainage of our land. Until an agreement is reached on this matter we cannot proceed with building.

We have permission to gather at the Thomas Design parking lot from 10:30-11:00 and 12:45-1:15 for corporate prayer led by the pastors and church Board.

Please bring boots and suitable attire, and join us as we lift this matter to the Lord in prayer.

Adult Bible Study: Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live. Tuesdays, February 21-April 11; 7:00-9:00p.m. Location: 126 Sauve Cres.  Cost: $18 for book. WARNING: Participating in this study could lead to permanent life changing affects! If you choose to join, we will be seeking to answer the following: What did Jesus really mean when he said, “Follow Me”? Is it possible for people to say they believe in Jesus but not truly be born again? Is it possible for people to claim the have accepted Christ into their hearts yet not actually be Christians? Not only is it possible…it’s also highly probable! We will seek to understand that the call to follow Jesus is a summons to lose our lives even as we pursue Him. To live as a disciple of Christ is to be transformed from the inside out and personally empowered to make disciples from every nation, tribe, language and people. This is a 7 week study by pastor and author David Platt on Tuesday evenings that requires a serious personal study commitment. Come and join us and Follow Jesus! You will never be bored! You will find purpose! You will never lack joy! But it will cost you. It is a summons to lose your life! Reply to this email to register.

Canadian Scientific and Christian Affiliation presents: Is Religion Obsolete in a Scientific Age? Wednesday, February 22; 7:15p.m.; St. John’s College (Room 118), U of Manitoba  Modern scientific theories and methods provide us with powerful models and tools for understanding our world. Riding on the success of the modern sciences as their platform, some popular scientists today downplay the significance of religious questions and attempt to undermine religious truth claims. In their view, science has made religion obsolete. In contrast, the sciences provide us with accurate and effective but not comprehensive knowledge about reality. Science serves humanity best when it is practiced within a broader, holistic framework that includes other means of apprehending truth, including religious ones. (Canadian Scientific and Christian Affiliation is a non-profit Canadian fellowship of scientists and those interested in science, who want to understand how science should best interact with the life-giving Christian tradition. Part of our goal here at CSCA is to provide a helpful space for young believers who are struggling to reconcile Christian faith and science.)

If you choose to join, we will be seeking to answer the following: What did Jesus really mean when he said, “Follow Me”?

This is a 7 week study by pastor and author David Platt on Tuesday evenings that requires a serious personal study commitment. Come and join us and Follow Jesus! You will never be bored!
