December Ministry Update

img_0771Joyeux Noël from the Copelands! 

Winter is in full swing here in Montreal, our first snow came on November 21st and we’ve heard that this is only the beginning when it comes to the cold. We are thankful for our cold weather gear, a warm apartment, and a parking spot in a garage! The kids are enjoying the snow of course, what kids wouldn’t want to have snow at their fingertips for months at a time?

Pray for us to adjust to less daylight and to the cold walks to and from school!


Ministry News:

  • We are consistently seeing between 25-30 people join us on Sunday’s for our service
  • Of those that come 12 are babies/kids that attend Renaissance Kids
