O Canada

By Ryan Dawson
We are so blessed to live in this great country! On Saturday July 1st we have the amazing opportunity to celebrate this reality and connect with our community as we gather for Canada Day.  There will be thousands of people enjoying the festivities at Clarke Fields just adjacent to OCS, so we are encouraging you to be present with your church family as we love our neighbours.  

At Sequoia we are seeking to be a Family of Servants on Mission, and this is one tangible way we can live this out in our own backyard.  There are opportunities for everyone to be engaged, including handing out fresh fruit at the Fun Cruiser, helping in our family rest area, giving temporary tattoos, keeping the park clean, and set-up and tear down.  You can sign up for different shifts (2-hour slots) scheduled throughout the day on the app or through the website.  

So, whether you can come for a couple hours or for a longer time, it’s going to be joy to serve together.  We will take the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations with people and invite them to our summer services and our Movies in the Park.  We are trusting God for many fruitful spiritual conversations as we take the initiative the love and serve people.  

So please join us for a great Canada Day Celebration and enjoy the fellowship, the music, the games, the fireworks, and the opportunity to develop some friendships. We also encourage you to look for opportunities in your own neighbourhood to connect with friends and neighbours over the holiday weekend.  Remember that God is always working, and we have the privilege of joining Him in His work to bring renewal to all things through Christ.

"Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”  Matthew 5:16

Happy Canada Day!  

Blessings, Ryan
