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!

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!
