Niagara_2014_2.JPGOn June 8th, a number of AGC churches in the Niagara area gathered together at Queenston Heights Park for the "Together We Worship" church in the park.  It was a perfect way to cap off our National Conference by having these churches partner in worship and ministry!

St_Clair.jpgThis Sunday (June 22) there will be a celebration/dedication service for St. Clair Community Church (SCCC) in Hamilton, ON!

SCCC is a church plant of Grindstone Church that has been in the works for almost two years.  On June 8th SCCC held their first Sunday service, and this week the entire Grindstone family will be worshiping together at the Germania Club in Hamilton at 10:15 am!

Please pray for our Sunday gathering, and for plant leader Matt Pamplin.


The AGC Canada East Council is pleased to announce that Rev. Dr. Laird Crump has been confirmed as our new Canada East Superintendent, beginning July 1, 2014!.  Laird received 100% affirmation from the Canada East Conference on June 6.  Please pray for Laird, his wife Joey, and their family as they make this transition.


Russ_Wilson_April_2014.jpgThe Associated Gospel Churches is pleased to announce that Rev. Russ Wilson has been approved as our next Canada West Superintendent!  The Canada West Region voted overwhelmingly in favour of appointing Russ at last weeks' Canada West Conference in Melfort, SK. 

In the excitement of welcoming Russ, we also say a very fond but sad farewell to outgoing Superintendent Jim Houston, who has served so diligently over the last 12 years.  Thank you Jim for your heart to serve, and for the many practical ways you have shown your love for the Lord and His people.

SOUTHERN ALBERTA FLOOD

The Black Diamond/Turner Valley Story

At 6:45 am on Thursday, June 20th/2013, our family was given 2 minutes to evacuate our home.  The flood waters were pressing up against our house and we barely were able to drive our van out of the driveway of our Black Diamond home.  Two days later we were allowed back on our street and to our home to see that we had 4 feet of water in our basement.  That was the common story among so many of us in our area of the province. 


God's Faithfulness to the Rock

The_Rock_members_June_2013.jpgOn June 23rd, the Rock Community Church in Woodstock, Ontario welcomed its first sixty members to membership.  This was a monumental event in the Rock’s history, since five years ago, the Rock was a church restart with a dozen people in attendance.  We are tremendously thankful to God and for His work through the AGC’s Church Planting Commission which has faithfully supported our ministry of preaching the Gospel faithfully and making disciples of Jesus in this community in Woodstock.
