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 Grieving Sisters

March 2/3, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

Scripture John 11:1-44

The story of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus is beautiful, poignant, and impactful. It presents to us three aspects of Jesus’ life and ministry which are amazingly hopeful and inspiring for us today. We’ll see how Jesus responds to Martha (the activist), Mary (the contemplative) and Lazarus (the dead guy!).  More than that, we’ll discover what Jesus wants to do in and through our lives.

This weekend’s service(s) will end with an opportunity for us to encounter Jesus at the exact places and spaces where we most need Him. I believe it will be an extraordinary weekend, a life-changing weekend, and it will be so much more meaningful if you are here with us. Who knows, it might not even be -26 degrees Celsius!!  Bless you all and I look forward to being together with you!
