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 Living Nativity

Dec 1/2

There are so many amazing things about Christmas, but have you ever just felt just a little bit… awkward about it?  Even when we have the best of intentions, sometime the very things we do to celebrate Christmas can become uncomfortable distractions from what we know to be the marvelous story of Christ’s arrival. Maybe it was even a little bit awkward for Jesus, himself, to go from striding effortlessly across galaxies to being born in a simple stable.

This weekend we hope that you’ll join us as our own Extreme Kids and Pastor Jerry lead us into this season of anticipation and worship. It’s our prayer that we will both laugh about the awkward moments and be reminded of the miracle of incarnation; what it must have been like for Him, and what it means for us today!
