Join us on Sunday, June 18 at 9:30 a.m. or 11 a.m. for Baptism and Membership Sunday.

Posted on June 15, 2017

This Sunday, June 18 we are celebrating Baptism and Membership Sunday at St. Paul’s. During the 9:30 a.m. service we will welcome Dhoui Chang and his wife, Sophia, into membership. Dhoui and his family have been attending St. Paul’s since January 2015. Dhoui has been serving as a photographer for many of our special occasions and services. His beautiful photos can be seen on our facebook page and website.

Dhoui and Sophia came to St. Paul’s in search of a children’s ministry for their children. “Sophia and I realized a change was necessary so we decided to check out St. Paul’s Bloor Street” says Dhoui. “We haven’t regretted it. Both Audrey and Elliot want to go to church on Sunday mornings and they are growing in knowledge of Christ.”

They decided to become members because the family feels at home here: “We feel part of this body of Christ. Yes, our ministers remind us we are part of the body (members) if we regularly attend, but we feel an important step is the expression of membership.”

Both Dhoui and Sophia are already actively involved in our community, “Our kids love it here and both Sophia and I have found our place in reaching out to newcomers and in offering my gift of photography.”

One verse that has been on Dhoui’s heart during this membership process is Psalm 100:2, “Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.”

Plan to join us this Sunday, June 18 at 9:30 a.m. or 11 a.m. to support, welcome and pray for all of the baptism and membership candidates joining our community.

Our next baptism and membership service will be held in the fall. For more information contact Sandra Seaborn, Associate Priest.
