Regional Assembly April 17-20th, 2013
The theme of the ANiC’s Regional Assemblies is based on Colossians 1:28 (ESV): Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.
Three ANiC assemblies will be held: the eastern assembly is April 17-19 at Crossroads Centre in Burlington, while both the western and Asian & multicultural assemblies are April 17-20 at Good Shepherd Church in Vancouver, BC. We anticipate more ANiC members will be able to participate in the worship, fellowship and spiritual teaching offered.
Please go to ANiC Asian and Multicultural Assembly website for details. The speakers’ bio and synopses can be found there too.
Good Shepherd Calgary officially launched as an ANiC church plant with Bishop Stephen Leung officiating at a Holy Communion service on February 9 (Saturday) which was held at Our Lady of Peace Maronite Catholic Parish of Calgary (504 – 30th Ave, NW Calgary). 150 people joined the dedication service at which three adults were baptized – a real encouragement to this new Cantonese congregation.
Following this launch, Good Shepherd, a Cantonese-speaking congregation of 35-40 led by Evangelist Tom Lo, will meet regularly beginning February 17, 2013.
The group has been meeting for Bible study for two years as an evangelistic outreach ministry. About half of the congregation are seekers. So far one family and three adults have been baptized and others are preparing for baptism.
