February 13-16, 2015 (Friday to Monday) the East Canadian Field Conference held its annual Winter Youth Retreat at Shalom by the Lake - the well-known and well-liked Christian camp in Haliburton Highlands. Cold weather and daytime temperatures ranging from -10 to -25 degrees Celsius did not discourage the families with children and several couples and single adults without children to come to this scenic place. To the contrary: this time our people came and stayed in numbers larger than ever before. They had enjoyed one of the most spiritually uplifting winter retreats in our history.
This winter we invite you again to attend the Youth/Children Retreat at Shalom by the Lake – a scenic Christian retreat nestled on the shores of the Halls Lake in Haliburton Highlands. Since most of our members and visitors have spent many memorable moments at this retreat, this place needs no special introduction.
2015 Winter Youth/Children Retreat will take place during the Family Day long weekend, February 13-16 (Friday afternoon to Monday noon). We hereby invite all families with children to spend a relaxing weekend immersed in the stillness of nature, enjoying the beauty of the winter season in the "true north."
The weekend of October 11-12, 2014 was the weekend of worship, fellowship and literature evangelism in the City of Montreal, Quebec. Several families from Ontario traveled long distances to spend the Sabbath of October 11 with our church in Montreal. Since this was a long weekend associated with the Thanksgiving Day in Canada, the main topic for the Sabbath meetings was: "Thanksgiving vs. Thanks-Living."
