Adopt-a-Block October 2013

Hey there!

Just wanted to update you about Adopt-a-Block that happened this past Saturday October 19. We had a great crew of over 20 people come and help out! They came with a truck, a trailer, rakes, leaf blowers, and a great attitude, ready to serve! And serve we did! Here’s a short video:

We cleaned up and took away a trailer full of leaves, cleaned up a bunch of branches, and got to pray for one lady as well.  A number of the team members came up to me afterwards and thanked me for inviting them, and said that they had a good time and looked forward to coming again soon.

Here’s a picture of the leaves we raked, piled into the trailer:

Thanks to everyone who came out and made this Adopt-a-Block a great success! We could not have done this without you!

Our next Adopt-a-Block will be happening a little less than two weeks from now on November 2, 2013. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, I invite you to come out and join us then! We will meet in the Multi-purpose room at 9:30 AM. Also, send me a quick email at rob@churchoftherock.ca to let me know you’re coming.

2013 Summer Carnival

We had another amazing year at the Westridge Community Center.  On Sunday June 9th we held our 5th Annual Summer Carnival.  Each year we have seen more and more people come out to the event, and this year was no different.  In fact, we were shocked by the incredible turnout!

There were tons of people there right from the moment we started till the moment the party ended.  We had around 1,200 people out to the event, which is almost double the amount of people who came from the community last year.  It was amazing to watch as over 100 volunteers spend the two-and-a-half hours serving everyone who attended.

Here are some pictures from the event …

What I found most interesting is how people responded to the weather.  Even though the weather held off for the most part, there were some small patches of rain throughout the event.  When it did start to rain, I expected to see people run for cover, but no one moved – they just continued to do whatever they were doing.  Obviously everyone was having a great time!
