The Journey, A New Series of Messages: On March 6, we start a new series of messages. called The Journey, the series will focus on our walk of faith through this world to the next and will be tied loosely to the book The Pilgrim’s Progress. The children will be following a parallel curriculum on Sunday mornings, exploring the same themes as the adults each week.  How can you make the most of this series personally and as a family?  Here are several ideas:
Read The Pilgrims Progress:  Purchase a print, electronic, or audio version.  (We recommend the modern English version revised by Alan Vermilye.)
Purchase copies of The Little Pilgrim’s Progress for $10 to read with your children, and pick up the Take it Home curriculum prepared by our Children’s Director, Shelley Schamehorn. (Visit the Information Centre in the foyer after the service to get these materials.)
Watch the animated Pilgrim’s Progress film with your kids. It is available on Right Now Media and can be accessed free by any Maranatha community member.  Contact Nancy in the church office to register for the service.

Thank You for all you prayers ,cards, messages and phone calls. It was a journey that this community walked with us. Henry was very much at peace. Barb Huiskamp, Diana, Jacob & Amanda.
