Interconnection between Relationships, Sex, and Self-Worth”. We live in a world that has

how we are supposed to think and act on it down our throat. It is time that we discuss this
topic as revealed in God’s Holy Word. This is an all-day event with afternoon workshops
and potluck for Everyone! Look forward to seeing you there! "We should never be ashamed
to discuss, that which God was not ashamed to create."

8. All of our children deserve to have a quality Adventist education to equip them for faithful
service to God and humanity. In an effort to improve the quality of Adventist education
for all our children, the SDACC is holding an Education Summit from November 23-26,
2014. We value your input in this process, and therefore solicit your participation in this
· If your child IS attending an Adventist school, take the survey to let us know about your
child’s school experience. If your child IS NOT attending an Adventist school, take the
survey to let us know the reason(s) for not attending so that we can address your concerns.
The online survey runs from September 15 to October 3, 2014. It will take about 15
minutes of your time. Your input is critical. On September 15, please go to
http://catnet.adventist.ca, click SURVEY, and enter ADVENTIST as the password to
9. Reminder: please remember that the local running of our church is funded only by
your donations to our local budget and/or building fund. Tithe does not cover the
costs of our utility bills, building maintenance, or related loan payments. When you
return your tithe please remember to add an offering for our local church funds.
10. Health Corner: Banana Facts! Did you know bananas, apples & watermelons float
in water? A man in India once ate 81 bananas in a half an hour. If you peel a banana
from the bottom up you won't get the stringy things. Those stringy things are called
phloem (pronounced FLOM). The average American eats 12kg of bananas every year,
and the average Australian eats almost 15kg of bananas every year. An individual
banana is called a finger. A bunch of bananas is called a hand. They are the only fruit
that contains tryptophan plus vitamin B6. They work together to help your body
produce seratonin which is the natural chemical that alleviates depression. In 2001,
there were more than 300 banana-related accidents in Britain, most involving people
slipping on skins. In South East Asia, the banana leaf is used to wrap food (in the
place of plastic bags and cling wrap), providing a unique flavor. The leaves are used to
wrap foods to be steamed. There are actually 14 stages of ripeness for a banana. Stage
1 is when they are picked while they are still green. Stage 7 is when the yellow banana
starts getting brown spots. These spots are sugar and this is when the banana is
perfect for mashing to make into banana cake or banana bread. Higher numbers
usually mean throw it out. Bananas contain 15% of your daily recommended vitamin
C requirement. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that boosts your immune system.
It also helps regulate your blood sugar and grow and repair body tissue. Some grocery
stores sell “un-gassed” (Ethylene) bananas; they aren’t as vivid a yellow color as the
gassed bananas and are usually a mix between green and a muted yellow color, but the
flavor of un-gassed bananas is generally better. If the bananas you buy are too green,
you can put them in a brown paper bag with an apple or tomato overnight to speed
up the ripening process. You can slow down the banana ripening process by storing
the fruit in the refrigerator. The skin may darken, but the banana will be just right for
several days.

e do not see the word thankful in Proverbs 17:22, but it is inferred. It says, "A
merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones."
You cannot have a merry heart if you are not thankful.
Science has found that our immune systems are benefited or debilitated by our emotions.
Thankfulness is one of the most positive emotions that God has given to us. We benefit not
only our spiritual experience by thankfulness and praise to God, but we can benefit our
physical well being also. God knew this long before science came to this conclusion.
"Nothing tends more to promote health of body and of soul than does a spirit of gratitude
and praise. If we are heaven-bound, how can we go as a band of mourners, groaning and
complaining all along the way to our Father’s house?
"Those professed Christians who are constantly complaining, and who seem to think
cheerfulness and happiness a sin, have not genuine religion." The Ministry of Healing, 251. This
is not talking about being light and frivolous. It is talking about being joyful and at peace,
with praise and thanksgiving in our hearts to God.
God wants us to be thankful for His goodness, for His mercy, and for His truth. We will
never be weary in being thankful for those things. The more we see of God and His
goodness, the more thankful we will be and the more praise we will give to Him. It is just
"Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name." 1 Chronicles 29:13.

congregation, necessitating two Sabbath services, and resulting in the establishment of a new,
active congregation in the west end of the Hamilton region. This new vision now defines
everything we do at Hamilton Mountain!
As followers of Jesus, we are called to reflect His love and share His everlasting gospel with
those around us.
We are a family of believers whose purpose is to C.A.R.E.
