2016 Winter Youth Retreat at Shalom by the Lake

The Youth Department of the East Canadian Field Conference (ECFC) is happy to inform you that the next Winter Youth Retreat is scheduled to take place February 12-15, 2016 at Shalom by the Lake in the scenic Haliburton Highlands (Muskoka Region). The main theme of this year’s retreat is “You Are My Witnesses”.

At this retreat our guest speaker will be Bro. Adrian Finaru (GC Colporteur Department Director). We anticipate that Bro. Adrian will come together with his daughter, Clara, who is also a trained colporteur. The youth and children will have a unique opportunity to learn more about literature evangelism and the most effective methods/techniques of canvassing. We plan to have a health presentation by Bro. Milan Lasica (Medical-Missionary Leader of ECFC) entitled “Our Daily Bread.” As this seminar will be of a practical nature, be prepared for a hands-on experience.

Many indoor and outdoor activities are planned, as well as some more studious moments. Make sure you book your place!

Montreal Youth Sabbath Report

We would like to keep you updated following the Youth Sabbath we had this past weekend. Around 40 people were present during the course of the day. You will find some pictures at the bottom of this article. Here is a little summary of the day, written by one of the participants. She is 9 years old and you will be able to see her point of view. No adult was involved in the redaction of this text. We give her the floor:

Youth Sabbath in Montreal – December 19th 2015

You are all invited to the special Youth Sabbath that will be done in Montreal church on December 19th 2015. This will be completely different than what you are used to. Our main focus will be our young guests, from the neighbourhood, school mates of our church children, etc. We have designed a custom program for them in the morning around the topic of David and Goliath. We would like to help the children see how they can overcome their daily challenges and fight their giant problems. In the morning, we will have group activities, followed by a short talk on how to be a hero. After the vegetarian lunch we will share, the afternoon will be dedicated to building up an armor in different booths, animated by the parents. The whole Sabbath will be in French but we hope that you can join us in this endeavor to touch the hearts of both children and parents from the community.
