Our next Shabbat Gathering will be October 7th at Victory church for a regular morning Shabbat Service beginning at 10:30am.
"Sukkot is seen to be prophetic of the Second Coming of the Messiah. Titus 2 speaks of "awaiting the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour, Yeshua the Messiah." In light of this anticipation, Paul's epistle reminds us that our priorities are not the same as the world's. Far from being fearful or escapist, we have a tremendous calling to live and act with deeds that beautify the Gospel. We end the seven days of the Festival with this encouragement that our labours will not be in vain."
Although the formal Children's Ministry year will not begin until October 14, this week we will provide a ministry to children that completes some activities from the past summer.
Please note: there will be no Oneg with this service, Oneg will resume after the festival season has concluded.

John 7: 37-39
Now on the last day, the great day of the festival, Yeshua was standing up and he cried out, saying: “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. He that puts faith in me, just as the scripture has said, “Out from his inmost part streams of living water will flow.’” However, he said this concerning the Spirit which those who put faith in Him were about to receive; for as yet there was no Spirit because Yeshua had not yet been glorified.
