Starting Sunday, November 10th at 9:30am* we will be holding membership classes for anyone interested in becoming a formal member of Abbotsford Church of the Nazarene.
These classes will answer questions like: What does it mean to be a Nazarene? What does a Nazarene believe? & What does it mean to be a Member at AbbyNaz?
Whether your goal is to become a member or simply learn more about the Nazarene Church, you are welcome! Please contact Matt or the office to find out more.
*For those who can’t make 9:30, we will meet after the church service in the fireside room. Lunch will be provided.
It is wonderful to be a part of this success story! Thousands upon thousands of children are blessed with a shoe box at Christmas when they wouldn’t otherwise receive a gift because people like you care. Feel free to pack your own shoe boxes or help yourself to the boxes at the display in the foyer. See Lorna for more details. All filled boxes need to be back at the church by Sunday, November 10th. Happy packing!

At AbbyNaz we take an Alabaster offering twice a year to help build Churches, Schools, Medical Facilities and Homes on the Mission Field. You can contribute by saving all of your loose change throughout the year to donate on the next Alabaster Sunday. See the Office if you require a Alabaster box to collect your change in.
Recently we welcomed Nora Hajian to share about her missions work in Tanzania as a member of Wycliffe Canada. Nora will be doing supportive linguistic work, in the form of dictionary development, as a part of the Bible translation project on a two year mission.
Below is a excerpt from one of Nora’s recent newsletters:
Hello, family and friends! I made it safely to Tanzania! Praise God. Thank you for all your prayers: the trip went more smoothly than I expected it to go. I started orientation last week. Next week, I’ll start learning Swahili through the Growing Participator Approach here in SIL’s office. I look forward to telling you more about Swahili in a later newsletter. Slowly, I am adjusting to the heat and humidity, Tanzanian phone and internet services, the bus system and my (temporary!) position as an inexperienced stranger who doesn’t know the language.
Thanks for your prayers and support, everyone! I look forward to further communication with you.
