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?

Devastating Denials

April 13/14, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Clint Mix

Scripture: John 18:15-18, 25-2,
              
  Mark 16:7,
               
 Acts 2

The words we blurt out and the impulsive decisions we make so often shape our destiny. The disciple of Jesus, Peter, infamously denied Jesus; he said and did things that resulted in devastating outcomes.

Like Peter, our own choices and sometimes the decisions of others end up causing devastation in our lives. This can take the form of regret, despair and a loss of hope for the future.

Our “denials” can hurt us, but should they define who we are and the destinations of our lives? After Peter’s denial his life didn’t turn out like you might expect; it took a surprising twist after an encounter with Jesus!

Devastation doesn’t have to be our destination!

See you soon.
