Hi WEFC Family, 

Congregational Meeting: On Tuesday, April 19 at 7:00pm in the MPR all are invited to gather for a special meeting to pray, consider, discuss, listen and vote (members only) whether to call Keith Boschman to be WEFC’s Lead Pastor.  

It is strongly encouraged to attend in person if at all possible. The benefits of being together, in person are many.  

If, however, you absolutely cannot attend in person, the meeting will be made available online. Please let Christina know by calling or emailing the office no later than Monday, April 18 if you can only attend online.  

Please Note: The audio from both the Saturday afternoon session and the Sunday morning conversation from 9-10 was recorded. If you missed these events with Keith and Lisa, you can listen to them by visiting our webpage under the Resources tab. These recordings will only be available until Wednesday, April 20.  

Good Friday: Even though breakfast has been cancelled on account of the weather we will still gather together at 10:30am to remember that our debt has been cancelled by the atoning sacrifice Jesus Christ made through his death on the cross. The Chapel will be set up for personal, self-led prayer reflections from 9:30-10:30am. 

Easter Sunday: Muffins and Musings: Sunday School will continue at 9:00am, with classes for all ages, except, this week it will include muffins. The nursery is open all morning, during Sunday School as well as the Worship Gathering.

During the Worship Gathering at 10:30 we celebrate that Christ is risen in song, special music, prayer and the Word! Pastor Len will be bringing the message this week.  

Sunday Evening Bible Study: Beginning Sunday, May 1 at 7:00pm. Come at 6:30 for soup and buns. Where Do We Go from Here? A 10-week video series with Dr. David Jeremiah that explores how tomorrow’s prophecies foreshadow today’s problems. Socialism; Globalism; Pandemic; Economic Chaos; The Falling Away; End Times People; Cancel Culture; Spiritual Famine; Jerusalem; and the Triumph of the Gospel. Each week we will look at: what is happening, what it means and where do we go from here.   

Caught in the Act: Great things happen all the time around here but two caught my eye this week. The first was a kind, caring, older man got to his car and thought to himself, “I can’t leave it like that, someone might get hurt.” So, he turned around, got a shovel and took care of the snow/ice that was by the church’s front entrance. Nice work, Grant! The second happened at Grace Point. An energetic, welcoming, hostess introduced the Boschman family to everyone, but then… had them (the Boschman’s) each pull a name of a Grace Point regular from out of a basket. She then went on to introduce, build up and say wonderfully positive things about each individual. Fantastic, Cassia, way to go! That is the grace of God made visible through two acts of care and kindness.  

Save the date:  

  • Saturday, May 28, WEFC Women’s Day Retreat at Camp Assiniboia.
  • June 10-12 WEFC Camping weekend at St. Malo Provincial Park. Contact Bryan and Heather Jacobson for more information.  

Encouragement: “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” – Matthew 25:46 

50/50 

It would seem there are not too many choices. In fact, there are just two: reject or receive. When is the last time you put a USB flash drive into your computer? Did you get it right? Why is it that whenever we insert it in the receptacle that we inevitably put it in the wrong way first. Does that ever happen to you? We only have two choices and usually we get it wrong the first time.  

Or you are on your way to meet someone and you impulsively decide to go one way instead of the other. Turns out you have lots of time to think about whether you should have known there was a train coming as you wait until every last one of its 86 cars passes you by. If only you had taken the other way.  

Jesus teaches his disciples that one day the Son of Man will come in his glory, with his angels with him, and he will be seated on his throne in heavenly glory (Matthew 25:31). He, the King, will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father; (25:34)” Then he will say to those on his left, “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” (25:41). 

There are only two options, with eternity at stake. There is no trying again if we didn’t get it right the first time. The separation from God won’t disappear when we have waited long enough and paid our dues for taking the wrong way.

What a great weekend to personally reflect on our standing before the King. You see, God loved the world like this. He gave His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, so that anyone who believes in Him will not be eternally separated from him but have eternal life (John 3:16). Have you received in faith this free gift of salvation? Do you believe he lived; he died; he was raised to life; he ascended to the Heavenly Father’s right hand and he will one day return revealing that He is King overall?  Will the King say to you, “Come” or will he say, “Get out”?  

More than just a holiday, Easter urges us to consider how eternally important it is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. People must know.  

Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.
