Good Friday
Encountering Jesus
- Sermon Series

April 19, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Carla Olsen Draper

Scripture: John 19:1-30

On Good Friday the ways of God stand in stark contrast to the ways of humanity.  On this day the mystery of God’s wondrous love and power are displayed and suffering and death.  We will never fully understand the crucifixion but understanding is not the purpose of the day. On Good Friday we gather as God’s people to stand in awe and horror, in wonder and gratitude at the foot of the cross. 

Join us as we reflect on Jesus’ passion and gather around His table to remember and receive the gracious gifts he won for us on the cross.

Clean Feet and a Pure Heart

March 23/24, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

Scripture: John 13:1-17

Servanthood. Not too difficult to spell but much more complicated to live out.

Our journey through John’s gospels and the encounters with Jesus that follow brings us to what we call “The Upper Room Discourse.” It’s a teaching time between Jesus and his disciples: his final words to them and prayer for them. As significant and impactful as the words must have been (and still are for us) – I’m prepared to guess it was the encounter with the towel and basin that made the greatest immediate impact upon the disciples. 

This is one of the most powerful and poignant moment between Saviour and disciple that both instructs and inspires us in the life Jesus is calling us to embrace today. It will be such a special time in God’s word, along with worship and child dedications. Looking forward to being together!

Grace and peace to you!
