All-In Conference:
This practical and honest event is designed to inform prospective foster or adoptive parents, equip and support parents currently providing care, and to encourage the church to be ‘all in’ in caring for vulnerable children.
The call in Scripture to care for orphans is both an invitation and a challenge to the church. On March 24, 2018, there will be a one-day conference at Calvin CRC designed to address the theological and practical issues involved in answering this call. Join us as we hear from Jason Johnson, author and speaker, whose passion is to encourage and equip the church to care for orphans. Additionally, break-out sessions will include special interest topics and foster and adoption Q&A panels.

Speakers for these sessions include: Wendy Stringer, Belinda and Steve Lanning, Michelle Hogeterp. http://www.resurrectionchurch.ca/all-in/ Cost: $35/person or $50/couple


Sometimes the stories we hear about people on mission can seem incredibly intimidating.  It makes us wonder and possibly doubt that we could be part of God’s mission in a way that could make a difference.  If this resonates with you, then Resonate Global Mission Eastern Canada invites you to be part of “How do I fit in God’s Mission?”

WHEN:  Saturday March 24, 2018 – 8:30 am to 3:00 pm

WHERE:  Kemptville CRC – 2455 County Road 18, Kemptville, ON

Speakers for the day include Kevin DeRaaf – Resonate Global Missions leader for Eastern Canada, Ottawa missional community practitioners, Rick Nanninga and Sheila Murphy.

COST: $ 20.00 BEFORE MARCH 11, 2018; $ 25.00 afterwards which includes lunch.
