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?

The Many Faces of Brokenness

January 19/20, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

Scripture: John 3 & 4

I was vividly reminded again this week of the reality that there simply isn’t a life story that gets a free pass on experiencing pain. Pain and brokenness invites itself into all of our journeys and while some of our pain is self-inflicted and some comes from the sinful choices of others, some literally comes from “out of the blue.” It just happens. 

What do we do with our brokenness? I think the best answer is to simply bring it to Jesus. Let Him into your story. Discover His remarkable presence and gracious healing. Acknowledge the pain. Invite the Saviour to heal and restore. He comes to us all and we’ll see just how that happens through two extremely different stories from John 3 and 4 this weekend. There are many faces of brokenness but just one source of healing and grace.

Come discover all that God has for us this weekend!
