An evening of fun at SGC Celebrate - Mystery in the Library

16th June – Saturday- Mystery Dinner in a library


SCG / Penny & Ken are inviting people to 1659 Hwy 518 E, Kearney for a Mystery Dinner at 6pm. Please contact Penny @ 647 477 2302 and she will assign you a character.


The premise of the evening is a library in which at night, many of the characters in the books come out to enjoy the evening air. A crime is committed, grim and grave, right in the library. His majesty Henry VIII disappears. All present at the dinner have some clues that they can reveal but not everyone has all the clues. By discussion and questioning, you will hear and try to work out what has happened.


If you get you character beforehand you may want to dress or have some article in hand that would suggest your character but that is not mandatory.


It is a chance to have fun and get to know out community and neighbours. Come an enjoy. A light dinner will be provided and when you contact Penny if you want to help, she may be able to guide you on how to do so. You can act out your part of not as you like. Fun and being part of a happy social gathering is the name of this game.


COME AND ENJOY an evening of fun!


Example of Typical characters: Peter Pan, Pinnocchio, Snow White, etc.

SGC service at 1659 HWY 518 E today at 2:30pm

Hi Folk,


Lunch at Ken and Penny's today followed by singing and then an investigation into the facts surrounding the bible message of Genesis 19. Message discussion starts around 2:30pm. Did Abram really exist? Where did those ancient people live and move around to? Why do it all when there we many different gods in those days? What made this one God different and special to those ancient people? How true is what we know and how does it apply to us today. Come an join us and find out.

SGC at 3pm this Sunday
We meet again this week at 3pm at Ken and Penny's home.

Last week we discuss Spiritual warfare so I expect some may have had a tougher week than normal this week. Our prayers are with you all. It seems evil does not want us helping our community with power and focus. We will not give up and will do so. Feel free to join us!

Helping with Hydro
Sometimes people just get into a tough place in life. Over the past period we have found that due to the hard winter and a need to have electrical power, combined with life circumstances that change (a death of a loved one, or tenants that refuse to pay rent) people can get into trouble. It has been our joy to bless some people who have had these issues by helping with their power bill. God is good!

Finding a home to Park a trailer
A family arrived in Kearney and due to the large amount of snow, the place they had organized to park their trailer home was just not available. They approached us at SGC ands we were helping organize a Birchdale church Passover meal celebration we invite them to come and see if we could find them a temporary home to park the trailer where they could connect to electricity and have shower facilities. The joy was that the church decided they could park there, but another couple form the church also offered their property. The joy of community was that they now have a place to stay until the snow clears and they can get where they need to.

God is good!

Yay! We replaced the church doors on the Birchdale church. Great thanks to Richard, Derek, Harvey and Ken for spending Saturday doing this. An especially big thank-you to Richard who got up at 4am to drive from Niagara to Kearney and afterwards drove back to Niagara! Huge thanks!

It was a good day with Penny's soup bread and rusks for lunch. God blessed us with getting it done smoothly and enabling us to have the materials to overcome the problems we found.

Praise God!

SGC celebrate today!

HI everyone,

Yesterday was a day of fun and activities on Mirror bay. granted an overturned canoe got some of us wet unexpectantly, but the food and fun (and the drying out of the all important graduation cheque) made up for that.
Unfortunately it rained out our bonfire, but Penny made s'mores in the microwave that were almost as good.

Today SGC celebrate will occur as usual at 3pm.

NOTE THE NEW United Kingdom phone number for joining our meeting if the computer audio is not great!

chat to you then!

No God rocks or SGC this week
Hi Folk, we start again next week.

Ken is doing this crazy MUD HERO TORONTO race with obstacles and mud puddles this coming weekend and so SGC cannot meet at his home.

HOWEVER GOD ROCKS next week is a precursor to our day of ACTIVITY FUN on AUGUST 30.

So get ready and get the word out.

Turn up at the SGC site (Ken and Penny's) with swimsuits towels a healthy appetite and ready to have fun on the lake 10am 30 August and be ready to stay to 9pm (we will end with a bonfire, fire conditions permitting)

It's also the Lion's day so we will go around to Kearney(maybe canoe there) to support our community.

Bring a few dollars with for that!

Hey, let's love God and have fun!

Meeting this Sunday again
Meeting this Sunday again. Ken and Penny are back from Alberta and we have a normal SGC weekend this weekend. The first wood has arrived for winter and we will need help packing it over the next few weeks. We want everyone to continue to pray for Barb and Richard, as well as Lou, Ian and family. Thanks to other Ken for again helping us help others by donating food this week.

Lydia is back form the Peru mission and led the message at God Rocks on Friday with a video and a talk on what happened.

Birchdale has been doing good with Vicky's leading. Ken is almost ready to do Michaels wedding having received the governments approval and he now needs to get the paperwork from the government so that that is ready.

God is good

SGC next celebration 6 April
Thanks to the person who dropped off food for our community this week. It will be appreciated!

SGC Celebrate will not be running for the NEXT TWO WEEKS. Ken and Penny are away and so the next Celebration is 6 April.

Please pray for one of our members who has fallen and hurt her stomach. Pray that there is no longer term significant damage and the pain will go away. Pray that over the next two weeks there will not be issues our Church can't cover off for those in the community.

Be blessed.
