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?

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!
