Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

Scripture: Matthew 3:13-17

This weekend we get to visit the initial moment that launched Jesus’ public ministry – his baptism. The circumstances around it are incredibly interesting, and we'll take a little time to consider them, but the real impact of the account are connected to the words the Father spoke to Him: they are words of confirmation, words of consolation, and words that we all need to hear, know, understand and embrace.

We'll consider the Father’s amazing love for us as well this weekend; we'll seek to embrace his remarkable purpose for our lives; and we'll allow His truth to shape our identity.  We'll be blessed and challenged and encouraged! And there might even be a few of us that will want to be baptized ourselves!

I so looking forward to being together at church and again at Bowness Park Sunday afternoon for an old fashioned church picnic! I deeply hope you’ll be able to join us and pray that the weather might be willing to cooperate! 

Blessings of peace and joy to you! 

p.s. If you haven't already, will you help us to know how many to prepare food for by purchasing your Picnic tickets online?

A Story of a Redeemed Life

April 27/28, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

Scripture: John 21:1-25

According to a historian named Michael Grant, Jesus is a pretty important and influential man. He writes: “The most potent figure, not only in the history of religion, but in world history as a whole, is Jesus Christ, the maker of one of the few revolutions which have lasted.  Millions of men and women for century after century have found his life and teaching overwhelmingly significant and moving.” 

Think of  how His life has transformed the world of the Arts.  Imagine a world without “Handel’s Messiah,” or Michelangelo’s “Sistine Chapel,” or Rembrandt’s “The Prodigal,” or DaVinci’s “Last Supper,” or Hugo’s “Les Miserables?” But His influence goes far beyond the world of music and art and literature. Imagine your life without Jesus and His grace, forgiveness and hope! 

Peter, perhaps the most famous disciple, certainly had to consider that for a season between his denials and restoration. We’ll study that restoration this weekend and we’ll be amazed again by the kindness of God and the purposes of God. There’s one grand theme woven into every Jesus encounter and we will spend time discovering it together. 

Be blessed and don’t let a little snow keep you from worshipping Jesus! So looking forward to being together and encountering Jesus together!
