‘CoffeeBreak’ set to begin this month

Dave Ogilvie

“Living above worry and stress” sounds great doesn’t it? This is the new bible study being started at “CoffeeBreak,” a multidenominational women’s Bible study group that meets at the Christian Reformed Church each Wed. morning from September through May.
Coffee time and fellowship starts at 9:30, followed by a bible study. “CoffeeBreak” also provides a nursery and a “Story Hour” for the babies and small children of the moms who attend. All materials are provided and there is no cost to attend. Bible knowledge is not necessary.
“CoffeeBreak” starts this year on Wednesday, Sept. 16 with a continental breakfast (coffee, muffins, fruit, etc.) at 9:30 a.m., followed by a time of fellowship, singing, games, and an introduction to “Living Above Worry & Stress,” a Bible study from Women of Faith, which will begin the following Wednesday, Sept. 23.
All ladies are welcome and encouraged to bring a friend!
For more information, please call Geneva at 482-2013 or Betty at 486-3735.

Cornell Farms would like to remind music lovers across the district that “The Wild Turkeys” will be the headliner for the last barn concert of the season on Sept. 12. The Wild Turkeys have an engaging stage presence and an energetic sound which can best be described as “Swamp-Stomp Country.”
The Wild Turkeys will no doubt fill the Cornell’s barn with a unique brand of country music that will leave those in attendance wanting more.
The opening act for the evening will be the “Ivalls” from Rainy River. This family trio consisting of Heidi, David and Matthew, has enjoyed making music at various functions across the district for several years. The Ivalls’ acoustic sounds cover a wide range of well known tunes, as well as Matt’s original material.
Tickets for the final “Concert in the Barn” will be $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Those interested in purchasing their tickets, can do so at the Fort Frances Public Library, at Greensides Store in Devlin or directly from Cornell Farms at 486-3477.

Community members of all ages attended Calvary Baptist Church’s free BBQ on Thursday, Sept. 3 in Emo. The message of the service that followed the meal was: “Is Heaven Real?” which was based on Revelation 21.
Following the message and some lively music everyone went outside to enjoy some ice cream cones in the beautiful evening air.
Thanks to everyone at CBC who helped make the evening so enjoyable.
