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!

Then, the Bad News

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

January 11 and 12, 2014

I'm quite fond of good news ... actually, I'm a big fan of good news!  Bring it on!  Bad news?  Not so much. But sometimes we can't fully understand good news without recognizing bad news. That certainly is the case when it comes to the gospel.  The price Jesus paid for this good news to be available to us implies a bad news scenario.  There was a reason he died brutally on the cross.  Paul helps us to understand that plight a little more in Romans 1:18-32.  It certainly is one of the more challenging passages of our amazing Bible.  I invite you to read it prayerfully before coming to church this weekend ... and then come with an expectant heart, longing for Jesus to open our eyes to his transforming truth.  Please pray that our hearts will be open to his grace and truth.  See you this weekend!
