Join us on Sunday for a chance to meet our pastoral candidate Dan Andrade
Our pastoral candidate Dan Andrade and his family will be here again on Sunday. He will be speaking again but this time shortly after the service there will be aQuestion and Answer period and then a ‘meet and greet’ luncheon.
If you have questions for him you can share them with either Dan Chapman or myself so we can collate them and use the time most effectively.

Okay, I’m repeating myself! As has been mentioned, our pastoral candidate Dan Andrade and his family will be here for the second of two visits Sunday. He will be speaking this Sunday from the Book of Luke.
Remember, you can join us as we gather in-person or you can connect through our website www.guelphbiblechapel.ca our YouTube channel as well as Facebook LIVE.
Thought for the day: Growing fruit takes patience!
On Tuesday I introduced what the Fruit of the Spirit is and how to get it. Now let’s jump in and try to understand what this means for our journey as followers of Jesus. As with any fruit, we won’t see it and enjoy it right away. We won’t see evidence of the Fruit of the Spirit in our lives the second we surrender our lives to Jesus. Fruit starts from a seed and that seed contains everything for the plant to begin and produce more fruit. In order for a tree to yield fruit it goes through a cycle where it must be planted in good soil, it must be nurtured, it must have a light source; it must be watered until it reaches maturity. The fruit is initially a seed, then a seedling, then a sprout, until it’s a fruit (ripe for picking!). What does this mean for our spiritual condition? First comes the planting, which happens when we accept Jesus into our life and then the WAITING for the fruit to grow and then ripen. We’ll look at that process next week. Until then, be patient and allow God to grow fruit in you in his timing.
In His grip,
