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!

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.
