On October 27 and 28, we celebrated our church’s 50th anniversary. On the 27, there was exciting music, entertainment by Kobbler Jay, and the debut of Peter Klassen’s film, “The Wonder View”. On the 28th we had a delicious banquet dinner, followed by a service including music and history highlights of Deer Run Church.
Every year on October 31, Deer Run Church hosts “Family Fun Night”. This year we rented the Kinsmen Recreation Complex in Leamington and hosted the event as an outreach opportunity for the community. Approximately 450 children came with their parents and enjoyed face painting, swimming, skating, and inflatables.
On November 9, we had the privilege of hosting a Country Plaut Concert featuring David Toews and his band. We find events like this to be a great opportunity for an outreach event for the community.
On the evening of November 11, there were 11 individuals (photo upper right) who were baptized and became members and an additional 11 individuals transferred their membership to Deer Run Church.
