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!

God, Are You Out There?

March 9/10, 2019

Guest Speaker: Brett Kunkle

Do you have to take a blind leap of faith to believe in God? Or, is there compelling evidence that God is real? This weekend I’ll explain arguments for God’s existence in a way that is understandable and shows that atheism is false. You will also find out the real reason many intelligent people don’t believe in God, and it has little to do with the facts.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to be with you this weekend as we wrap up this years’ Be Ready Conference!
