Our main service will follow at 11am with Pastor Adams preaching. There will be a lunch provided by the church. As always, there will be a staffed nursery and children’s church for each service.

Pastor’s Pen – June 18, 2012

June 18th, 2012

As we have entered the summer season, the Lord blessed as we have seen salvation decisions and seven baptized several weeks ago.

We had a blessed four day Bible Conference with Evangelist Max Alderman last weekend.  The altar was packed each service with standing-room only.  The theme was: “In My Life, Lord, Be Glorified.”  The special music was God-honouring, the congregational singing enthusiastic and our hearts were spiritually stirred for righteousness.  It is our prayer that this theme will be acted out in our everyday lives!

On Father’s Day Sunday, we prayed for each Dad as they have been entrusted with the Scriptural and spiritually sobering responsibility of leading their families.  God bless them!

On Sunday, July 1st, we have another Singspiration scheduled for the 6pm worship service followed by a trip to Dairy Queen.

On Sunday, July 8th, we will have our second Friend Day and BBQ of the summer.  There is no evening service that day.

Please note our 21st Anniversary Service is on Sunday, September 16th.  Missionary Pastor Dennis Seely will be preaching at 10am and I will be preaching at 11am.  There will be a large book table and a presentation by Principal Daniel Bousquet of our new Vaughan Baptist Christian Academy.  80 pizzas will be delivered by the end of the service.  We hope you will join us as we celebrate God’s goodness and faithfulness!

Pastor’s Pen – April 27, 2012

April 27th, 2012

Never in our 21 year history have we met with such sickness as our church is undergoing at the present time.  Because our congregation is primarily young and middle-aged, we have not faced the number of serious illnesses that older congregations encounter.  I felt led to teach a 3 part series on “Scriptural Sickness” on Wednesday evenings to help our people understand the Lord’s purpose and plan in the midst of these afflictions.  If you would, please remember specifically the following in prayer: Frank, Valentina, Blair, and Carol.

The Lord has blessed us with a great group of new visitors over the past few months. Of them, five families have been regularly attending.  All the adults have professed salvation with some now scheduled for baptism.

This week, a number of our families are delivering John and Roman booklets to a predominantly Muslim community.  Pray for the salvation of these precious souls for whom Christ died.

On Sunday mornings, Sunday school classes are held at 10am for toddlers, children, teens, and adults.  My adult class is in the midst of a study of the Psalms.  I am continuing my expository preaching series on Sunday mornings through the book of Philippians.  This Sunday, I am continuing a 6 part sermon series on Christian thinking from Philippians 4:6-9 entitled “Protect Your Mind.”  By guarding our thinking, God’s peace will permeate our minds!  On Sunday nights, I am preaching topical messages.  Wednesday evenings are dedicated to our prayer groups and a Bible study.  I am currently teaching an expository study of 1 Kings.  In each of our four regularly scheduled services we have a nursery and children classes.

On Sunday, May 13th, we celebrate Mother’s Day.  We have a potted flower for each mother in attendance.

There is a work night on Friday, May 18th.

On Sunday, May 20th, there is a Singspiration in the evening service.  There will also be a child dedication segment with baptisms to follow.  Right now we have four to be baptized.  Following the evening service, we are off to the Toronto waterfront for an evening of fellowship.

On Friday, May 25th, our ladies are headed to Ajax for the annual Ladies Retreat.

On Saturday, May 26th, there is a church-wide bowling activity.

On Sunday, May 27th, we are having our first Friend Day and BBQ of the year.  There is no evening service that day.

Then, on Thursday evening through Sunday evening, June 7-10, Evangelist Max Alderman will be back with us preaching: Thursday: 7pm; Friday: 7pm; Saturday: 6pm; Sunday: 10am, 11am, 6pm.  We invite you to join us for these soul-stirring services!
May the Lord bless you.  It is solely by God’s grace that all of us are saved and sustained!  God help us to remain faithful to Him in these perilous times!

Pastor’s Pen – February 18, 2012

February 19th, 2012

We began 2012 with our annual Worker’s Banquet in January. About 60 of us packed the “upper room” of a Swiss Chalet restaurant for about three hours where we enjoyed a delicious meal and some good-home fellowship. I preached a message on three marks of the early church that stand as a pattern for us today. It was great time to strengthen and to sustain ourselves in the great work of the Lord.

In early February, we held our annual Marriage Enrichment Fellowship. With 15 couples
present, we spent an afternoon and evening working on our marriages. The topics included “Being Valiant For Our Vows” and “Maintaining Intimacy In Our Marriages.”

On Sunday mornings, I am teaching an expository study of the Psalms to our adult class. The young people’s class begins again on Sunday, March 11th, as Blair returns from an illness. There are children classes and a supervised nursery.

At the Sunday morning worship service, I am preaching an expository sermon series through Philippians. This Sunday will be message #27 from Philippians 3:12-18. Sunday nights are topical sermons. Pastor Hird continues his oversight of all our children at Junior Church. On Wednesday evenings, before we break into prayer groups, I am teaching an expository study of 1 Kings. There are children classes and a supervised nursery at all our services.

On Sunday morning, March 4th, Missionary to Bolivia Jake Wiebe and his wife will be with us. Brother Jake will teach the men at 10am and then preach our morning service. His wife Sharon will teach our ladies at 10am. I have known the Wiebes for many years and you will be blessed by the preaching and teaching of these veteran servants of the Lord.

On Wednesday, April 4th, Missionary Pastor Dennis Seely from Cornerstone Baptist Church in Carbonear, Newfoundland will be our guest preacher for the mid-week service at 7pm. He is always a favourite of our people.

Easter services will be observed on Sunday, April 8th at 11am and 6pm. Sunday school will be held as usual at 10am.

Be sure to mark your calendars for June 7th – 10th. Evangelist Max Alderman will be returning with his wife for a series of meetings. On Thursday evening at 7pm, his wife will meet with our ladies and Brother Max will be with the men. Then he’ll preach on
Friday evening at 7pm, Saturday evening at 6pm, and all day on Sunday.

Our Christian school preparation continues at a high rate of speed! More information will be forthcoming soon.

May the Lord bless you. Let’s continue to work as we wait His coming!

Vaughan Baptist Christian Academy (VBCA)

December 28th, 2011

I am humbled and happy to announce to you that the congregation of the Vaughan Baptist Church has been led by the Lord to begin a Christian school ministry. We undertake this move with godly fear and sobriety! It has been a prayer and burden of our church family for a number of years and we believe that the Lord’s timing has arrived. As a ministry of our church, this traditional school will seek to evangelize, edify, and equip students to be God-honouring servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. In reaching out into our surrounding communities, we will endeavour to prepare young people spiritually, scholastically, and socially to live out their lives in the will of God to His good pleasure.

Brother Daniel Bousquet has been hired as the Principal of VBCA and will arrive here this summer. The school will start in September, 2013 and this will give Brother Bousquet a year to make all the necessary preparations. God has blessed and prepared him both academically and practically. He has a B.A. in English and a Master’s degree in Christian School Administration from Pensacola Christian College (PCC). After working as a teacher for several years at Liberty Baptist Christian Academy (LBCA) in Florida, he became the Principal there where he has served in that role the past five years. The school has a current enrollment of 490. His wife is my daughter Jennifer and she has a Master’s degree in English from PCC and teaches at LBCA.

We covet your prayers as we are already very busy with preliminary matters related to the school. If you have children who you would prayerfully consider placing in the school, please let us know. Though it is very early, we will be making a list of interested parents so they can be kept informed as things progress.
