Jun7WedJune 7, 2017 Pastor TerryJune 11, 2017 - time to celebrate! In 1977 Rev. Brian Long was hired by CBOQ (Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec) to plant a church in the new fast growing part of North Brampton. Three years later the Convention purchased land at 10245 Kennedy Road and in 1985 construction began on a new church building. Much has changed over the past 40 years and this coming Sunday we celebrate what God has done in this area through His people.Today Heart Lake Baptist Church is growing, vibrant, multi-cultural, multi-generational group of people who have a "passion for God and a heart for people". This coming Sunday we acknowledge God's goodness to us and we encourage you to invite a friend to this special celebration. At 10am we will hold our regular worship service with special music by singer/songwriter Steve Bell. I will be bringing a message entitled "Moving from an audience to an army" based on Psalm 133. Following the service we invite all to come to the gym for coffee, tea and a piece of anniversary cake.Then at 7pm we will host a Steve Bell concert (Doors open at 6pm - tickets still available Sunday morning or at the door, cash or cheque please). As one person put it "Steve does more than speak of beauty and goodness and love: he models it in his incredible musicianship, his lyrics and his gentle encouragement to live out our vocation as bearers of the Divine".So come this Sunday and help us celebrate 40 years and may we continue to look to our Lord for the next 40 years and embrace what God has in store for us.BlessingsDr. "T"
