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!

One Thing I Know...

February 23/24

Speaker: Ian Trigg

Scripture: John 9:1-34

Vision.  It truly is one of the most remarkable gifts God has given us.  The ability to see, to discern shapes and colours, to recognize beauty … it’s all quite amazing!  Ray Stevens classic song from the 70’s “Everything is Beautiful” reminds us that there are none so blind as those who choose not to see.  Our encounter with Jesus takes us to John 9 this weekend and the miraculous intervention and explanation of the healing of the man born blind whose life Jesus transformed.  “I once was blind but now I see” was his testimony.  Perhaps ours will be strengthened as we remember and discover the fact that He who healed still heals, He who came still comes, He who saw a blind man who couldn’t see Him still reveals Himself to us in our stories.  Have a blessed weekend and it will be great to worship together this weekend in the shadow of the Lord’s table!
