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?

Never Alone

April 6/7, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Scott Wiesner

Scripture: John 14:15-18

As we’ve followed Jesus’ footsteps through the gospel of John, we’ve come across all kinds of different people in all kinds of different life situations. But they all had one thing in common: when they encountered Jesus, their lives were profoundly impacted. Do you ever feel envious of those people? Do you ever wish that you’d had the chance to see, hear and touch Jesus as a living, breathing, skin-and-bone human being? It’s only natural to. But if you think you’d be able to know Jesus better back then than you’re able to now, you’re mistaken.

On the night prior to his arrest, Jesus told the disciples that in the coming days they would be able to know him far more intimately, even though they would no longer be with him physically. How? Through the presence and power of the coming Holy Spirit. Join us this weekend to discover why Jesus said it was “better” that he was going away, and how we can encounter him more profoundly than we ever thought possible through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.

See you soon.
