- Sermon Series

 Speaker: Conrad and Shelagh Buhler 

July 14/15

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:11-21, Matthew 18:15-35

Our names are Conrad and Shelagh, and this is our story.

On Sunday June 19th, 2016, Father’s Day, I (Shelagh) and our two girls went into Conrad’s phone and discovered evidence of an affair. Over the course of the next few days, the rest of the unfathomable truth about Conrad’s horrific sexual addiction was revealed and we separated on June 22nd, the day before our 26th wedding anniversary.

Conrad, who had always feared being caught, was now fearful that this was the end of our marriage and family. Me and my girls were devastated. There seemed to be no way back for us as a family, given the depth and scope of Conrad’s sin.

But, as we know now, God had other plans. We hope you can join us this weekend to hear the story of what God did in our lives.

Shelagh is an elementary school teacher who works with special needs children. Conrad, who worked with a Christian parachurch organization for 26 years, gave up his job because it had ties to his past behaviour. His focus and priority is now maintaining an environment of healing for his family and developing a ministry where they can share their story of reconciliation and hope with others. They are good friends of Foothills family members, and shared parts of their story earlier this year at a ManUp Breakfast.

 

NOTE: We recognize that this weekend’s topic can be painful and difficult. We know that not everyone’s journey of reconciliation has reached a happy conclusion, and we want you to know that we’re here for you no matter where you are on the journey. At the end of each service we will be providing resources for anyone struggling in their marriage or with sexual addictions/struggles of any kind.

We Choose to Go to the Moon

Speaker: Pastor Clint Mix

April 14/15, 2018

Scripture: Joshua 1:1-9

In 1962 President John F. Kennedy challenged a nation to do the unimaginable.

Many millennia ago, God challenged Joshua to do what seemed impossible: lead the people of God into the Promised Land. The inspiration and instruction from God’s words to Joshua give us confidence as we LAUNCH Glacier Ridge Church.

Join us for the first of four messages in our LAUNCH series as we listen to the voice of God. May he direct us as we discover how we can best participate in what he is doing at Glacier Ridge, and here at Foothills! See you soon!
