Speaker: Sally Bragg

Sally will be sharing about how God has transformed her life and given her the privilege to serve Him each day. She says: “Through life’s challenges and bumps God has been faithful, and I have learned to rely on Him, His Word, His promises and rejoice that His mercies are new every morning! His unfailing love and joy are my strength! I am a daughter of the King, and am learning to live each moment for Him, always ready to share the hope that burns inside of me! We live in a time of uncertainty, confusion, and chaos but, through it all, our God is still on the throne. We are His hands & feet to this lost and dying world! We are surrounded by hurting people, broken hearts and shattered dreams... and yet we can have hope and a rock on which to stand when the storms of life hit us hard! We each have a story to tell, a story this world needs to hear! So what’s stopping us………”

Sally, with her husband Stan, work on the Saugeen First Nation Reserve, near Owen Sound. They focus their ministry on children & youth. Included in their ministry are youth camps, Baby Blessing box distribution, a youth garden produce project, an archery program, a community bike program along with leadership within a Christian church on the reserve. 

Music Ministry

Music is such an amazing gift from God and can touch hearts in ways that words alone just can’t do. Part of what makes Day Apart special is the sound of so many women, from different backgrounds and churches lifting their voices together to praise God, our Father, and our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Some of our own Bethel women will lead our worship time.

We’ll also be blessed by the music ministry of Tracy Weber and her daughters. This family loves to sing to glorify God and we are thankful for their willingness to come and share with us.

Morning Seminars (you will choose 1)

1. Women’s Heart Health

Heart problems used to be thought of as more of a men’s health issue, but in  recent years we have become more aware of women suffering from heart disease and stroke. We’ll look at steps to take for prevention now to avoid future problems. We’ll raise our awareness of the warning signs of an attack and review what important steps we should take in case of an emergency.

Anita Cressman is a nurse with advanced training as a Nurse Practitioner and as a Canadian Certified Cardiac Nurse. She now works in a hospital setting with patients who have been admitted with cardiac issues. Outside of work Anita is married with two young daughters. She tries to practice the healthy lifestyle that she preaches - including eating good foods and staying active.

 2. Fresh Winter Ideas

Are you looking for a fresh idea to decorate the exterior of your home for winter or Christmas? It’s always fun to learn some new twist or some new design to just punch up the curb appeal of our homes. Discover some ideas that can work for anyone.

Our facilitator will be a staff member from the   Colour of Paradise Greenhouse and Garden Centre in Mannheim. They have had over 35 years of growing experience.

3. Coping with Stress

Life is full of many stressors - some can be contained through boundaries and healthy choices, but often we have little control over what comes into our lives. We can learn to manage it to the best of our abilities. This presentation will give us practical tools to help us deal with the inevitable stress that we each face. We want to tame this monster so it doesn’t bully us around.

Bunny Ninaber is a therapist and before that she was in pastoral ministry. She has four adult children and seven grandchildren.

Afternoon Feature (For Everyone)

Our afternoon feature will focus on some ideas for new touches to add to your wardrobe this season. Maybe you have several basic pieces, but you are wondering if there might be something interesting out there to add in a new colour or style for the fall.
