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!

The First Christian

April 20/21, 2019

Speaker:  Pastor Ian Trigg

Scripture: John 20:1-18

It’s the greatest weekend of the year!

For the follower of Jesus, nothing begins to compare to the wonder, the hope, the peace and the grace of Easter. Everything about who we are and what we believe was established in one moment on the day Jesus defeated the power of sin and death. 

A Sunday school class was asked “what was the first thing Jesus said when He rose from the dead” and one little girl answered:  “Ta da!”  It’s not the worst translation I’ve read of that morning! This weekend we will consider that moment through the eyes of Mary of Magdalene, the first eye witness of the Risen Christ through worship, drama and teaching. It will be a weekend filled with hope for whatever we are facing in life. It’s because the tomb is empty that the promises of God are full. Come and remember. Come and reflect. Come and find hope. Come and encounter Jesus. 

Have a blessed Easter weekend!
