June 22/23, 2019

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?

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!
