Lebanon Explosion

On August 14th, a large explosion ripped through Beirut, the capital city of Lebanon. The devastating blast, which was centered near the port, killed more than 150 people and injured more than 5,000. While the search for survivors is ongoing, the death toll is expected to rise. 

Among those impacted are Nazarene’s in the area. Windows were blown out in all three nearby Nazarene church buildings and a Nazarene school, and window frames, doors, and other parts of the buildings were damaged. Volunteers gathered the day after the explosion to assess the damage and sweep up broken glass and remove debris.

Canada Pacific District Assembly 2020

Our CPD Assembly looks a little different this year. If you haven’t seen, we’ve taken Canada Pacific online as well. We’d love for you to be able to see and experience what is happening around the District in a new way. The following YouTube video is District Superintendent Gord McCann’s first report as DS on our District.

Coronavirus: Let’s Talk About It.

Updated: April 24th, 2020

Dear Church Family,

I want to express our love for you during these days! It is good to be reminded by God about His plan for relationships within the church! When we can’t see each other face to face, one response we can have to that is to grow fonder for each other and have a unified desire to maintain and nurture our relationships. I am so thankful for how God is using you to meet the needs of others! Thank you for being willing to use what God has given you to help others!

If I could ask you one thing: Can we be praying for our youth? We are meeting once a week online. They are using what God has given them to think and care for others too, all the while trying to navigate online schooling and social distancing. Some of our youth would have had Graduation ceremonies coming up. This new reality can hit them hard and I pray that we all can lift them up to the Lord in prayer when we get moments in our day.
