Generosity 401 - Finding the Good Life
A Generous Life
- Sermon Series

November 10/11

Speaker: Scott Wiesner

Scripture: 1 Tim 6:17-19

Generosity. At one time in history, it was the hallmark of Christianity. Although Jesus-followers in the first days of the church had little in the way of status or resources, because they were willing to share what little they had with those in need, Christianity began to spread like wildfire.

But if the Apostle Paul were able to time travel here to Northwest Calgary in 2018, what would he have to say about our current level of generosity? As he points out in 1 Timothy 6, as our standard of living goes up, our hope tends to migrate from God over to our wealth. And when that happens, it leads to all kinds of destructive patterns of behaviour. Join us this weekend as we look at embracing a simple plan for generosity. Because if we could get this one teaching of Jesus right, it would impact our world unlike anything else.

I am Beloved

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

February 10/11, 2018

Scripture: Ephesians 3:4-21

I always feel a certain “weight” each time I teach at Foothills … but this weekend, I sense it even more deeply! The prayer we will study in Ephesians 3 is centered on the truth that in Jesus we are dearly loved, and it’s our understanding of that love that truly transforms our stories. We will begin the message with a powerful monologue about the lies we easily believe: the labels we allow to shape our conclusions about who we are, and how others view us. I hope you will be able to join us as we work to contrast these lies with the truth of how God views us: we are a beloved people!  Loved more than we could even dare to dream!  Please be praying for God to move in our midst and for truth to be embraced and celebrated. Pray that this will be a transforming weekend for many. I so look forward to being with you all!
