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!

More Than Enough

February 2-3, 2019

Scripture: John 6:1-15

Speaker: Scott Wiesner

Throughout his gospel, the apostle John was very specific about which events of Jesus’ life he included, calling each one a “sign” of Jesus’ true identity.  And at the very end of his book, he concludes by saying, “these (signs) are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” (John 20:31) 

The question is, how on earth does the massive picnic that Jesus put on (i.e. the feeding of the 5000) communicate that He is both the Messiah and the Son of God?  How does it encourage us to put our faith in Him and assure us that there is life in his name?  It turns out that in this well-known, yet often overlooked miracle of Jesus, there are incredibly rich layers of meaning that provide profound insights into who Jesus truly is and how He wants us to encounter Him. 

Join us this weekend as we take a fresh look at one of the most famous accounts in the whole Bible.  I have no doubt that it’ll make you fall in love with Jesus all over again.  I know I have as I’ve prepared this message! See you soon!
