Beloved Congregation,Greetings in Jesus! “The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy.” Psalms 147:11
We have great encouragement when we fear God. God will take pleasure in us and we will receive God’s mercy.
Harvest Festival: We are looking forward to an exciting evening on Saturday, October 15th. I encourage you to bring your gifts for auctioning. Also invite your friends. This is a good occasion to expand the ministry of St. Bede’s. Please try to come early to help in arrangements. It’ll be helpful if you can help after the service too to clean up. Please register the numbers on Eventbrite to help arrange for dinner. :https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/harvest-festival-2022-tickets-430148885897I have attached the latest Harvest Festival poster having the program and a pdf with other details.
