SEMC Weekly Update August 11



Join us this Sunday as we look at Jesus – the Eternal Word of God (John 1:1-2)

Please keep Pastor Deve in prayer as he heads to the Philippines with International Justice Mission (IJM). He will be joining several other Canadians as they see firsthand the work IJM is doing to end slavery in our lifetime. This will be a “Learning and Listening Trip” to interact with the staff at the IJM Philippines Office where they work with law enforcement and court systems and seek to rescue victims (mostly children) of cyber sex trafficking. Deve will be away from August 11th to August 19th. 

IJM is supported by the SEMC as part of our Global Mission. You can read more about IJM and their work in the Philippines by clicking here.

If you would like to join Brittany by providing items for the snack bags or by making a financial donation to allow her to purchase items, please do so by contacting her directly. Brittany’s email is
