Remembering the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross
As has become our custom, we have created a daily devotional guide to help prepare you for the resurrection celebration on Easter. We are grateful to Kerry Bender, who has written these for us to be encouraged, blessed, and challenged.
The shadow of the cross serves as a mixed metaphor, a reminder of curse as well as blessing. At all times, the shadow of the cross serves as a reminder that we are called to identify with the suffering of Christ so that we can find new life in Him. Our hope is that God will speak to you through the reading of and participation in these devotionals and that you will use them to be drawn closer to Him.
If you are not receiving these daily emails, please sign up below. We invite you to use these in your church or for personal use. Kerry has also created a book for them, available for purchase through Amazon.
Triennial 2018 Women’s Luncheon
All ladies registered for Triennial 2018 are invited to attend a special luncheon at The Westin Edmonton. Explore as women what it means to be “Clay in the Potter’s Hands” as God molds and shapes lives for His specific purpose. Enjoy connecting with friends, old and new. Hear how women throughout the NAB are letting the Potter mold and shape them to be on mission with God in their neighborhoods and communities. Hosted by the NAB Women’s Ministry Leadership Team, this luncheon will provide inspiration for ways to connect with other NAB women.
The cost of the luncheon is $40 CAD / $32 USD; space is limited. Pre-registration is required, as is registration to the conference in order to attend the luncheon on Friday, July 3, 12:15 p.m.–2:00 p.m.
