My Story with a New Country
Our Stories Pt. 2
- Sermon Series

August 17/18, 2019

Speakers: Rick and Patricia Love

Many of us have moved at least once in our lifetime. But while some of us have moved houses within the same city, others have made huge transitions to new countries, cultures, and languages.  

These transitions, both big and small, can have a huge impact on our lives. This weekend we will hear Tony and June’s story about making the transition to Canada and hurtling over challenges like language learning, adjusting to Canadian weather, and navigating a new city.

Maybe their story is your story – or maybe you have friends who have immigrated to Canada. Either way we hope you will be encouraged by our stories and find new ways to be welcoming to newcomers to Canada. The world is coming to our city, let’s be ready to welcome them!

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!
