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?

Scripture: John 1:43-51

Speaker: Pastor Clint Mix  

The new year is a time for us to reflect and refocus on what our priorities should be. As a church it reminds us that we are on a Transforming Journey of Knowing God, Loving Others, Reaching Neighbors and Serving the World! Transformation, be it physical or spiritual, remains an allusive goal for so many of us.  There are no simple or easy answers, however one of ways that we observe positive life change is when we see people have encounters with Jesus.

This week we begin a new series from the gospel of John entitled Encountering Jesus. We will discover how a diverse group of individuals were irrevocably changed because of their encounters with Jesus. You and I can also have our lives positively altered because of the encounters we will have as we journey together through the book of John. We begin this week by looking at The Skeptical Student in chapter one, Nathaniel.  

Come anticipating an encounter with Jesus!
