NorthRidge Carnival Success

What an absolutely fabulous day! Our new church plant in Maple Ridge kicked off the weekend with a gift to our community - A FREE Carnival! It went off without a hitch: volunteers, food, fun, and amazing weather provided by God all equal a great success. We had so many people come join us for this day, and I had the opportunity to speak with many wonderful new friends while I was volunteering at one of the stations.

I went online to our National webpage and read that the mission statement for The Foursquare Gospel Church of Canada is to be a Christ-centered national movement dedicated to serving people through planting and sustaining healthy local churches. Wow, that is exactly what we are doing! I'm so proud!

Russ and I feel blessed to be a part of the group beginning this church. The core leadership team are unflappable in their dedication to God and this new church plant. Our first "official" service is tomorrow, and I just can't wait to welcome all of the people that came out today into our new family.

If you would like some more information about our church, please go to I look forward to seeing all of you at church!
