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?

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!
