Our meeting will be on Monday, February 29 at 7pm at Mt. Zion, Waterloo

If you build it, they will come!

Our next TRMA meeting will be on Monday, February 29 at 7pm at Mt. Zion, Waterloo. We have been rather hard at work, strengthening our connections and looking at opportunities to support each other in ministry for others.
We look forward to hearing from the folks at Mt. Zion about their ministries.
Afterward, we will channel our creativity and have some fun as we build a vision of ministry to carry us into the next few years with hope and confidence.
Wow! That is where the Good News takes us. Come and see!

The congregation of St Peters, Linwood and Pastor Mark invite members of Two Rivers Ministry Area on Tuesday May 5th 7pm to St. Peters in Linwood (1046 Gordon Hain St, Linwood ON N0B 2A0).

A tentative agenda is being developed.

This is, of course, a concern for all. There may be folks in your congregation, who would benefit from taking part. Please encourage them to attend. No further commitment is required, although aim is to involve as many as possible in our ministries.

Prayers Needed!

Dear friends,

A granddaughter of an active member of our Two Rivers Ministry Area is struggling with very serious health concerns. I have received a permission from the grandmother to share this with you. We are asking your prayers for this family – for this child who is in pain and suffers from many and various problems, for her mother who is patiently and faithfully looking after all the needs of her child as only she is able, for the father and sister of the this child who are trying to maintain some normalcy in their lives and at the same time be together as a family and for the grandmother, supporting her daughter and granddaughter with all strength and love that she has. Please remember them all in your private and public prayers. Please know that the family is appreciative of your prayers.
