Tasty Program Start

 Phil St. Denis enjoyed one of the delicious cobs of corn.   Problem is, how do we get that butter out of his “Stache”

To mark the fall return to full programing, the Wetaskiwin Salvation Army Corps, after the church service, held its annual BBQ and corn-roast at the Lions Camp Ground on September 8th.  With a number of guests joining this special event, it was a great time for visiting.  The perfect weather, sunny but not too hot, added to the enjoyment, as did the abundance of delicious food—hamburgers, hotdogs, a variety of salads, desserts, and , of course, some of the best corn ever.  It was a beautiful day thoroughly enjoyed by all.  

    A lot of churches take a break in some of their programs over the summer months and have a special event in the fall as programs resume.

    Anyone and everyone is always welcome to come to the Salvation Army Church, with services in the Corps building on the corner of 51st Street and 51st Avenue in Wetaskiwin at 9:30 am and 11:00 am every Sunday except for four or five special Sundays such as September 8th.  Throughout the years, I have walked as a stranger into quite a large number of churches in a number of denominations in a number of communities, and have had a range of experiences from being ignored to feeling as though I was the only unknown person to whom the minister was directly preaching, to being warmly welcomed.  The Salvation Army Churches are, in my experience, the most consistently warmly welcoming.  

    The next Salvation Army special celebration will be the Thanksgiving Dinner following a joint 10:30 am service at the Moose Hall on Sunday, October 6th.  Many friends and family will be specially invited, but the invitation is really extended to everyone, and all who come will be warmly welcomed and well fed, spiritually and physically.
