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!

Intentional Diversity

Sep 22/23

Speaker: Clint Mix

Scripture: Acts 2:1-13

We all look forward to exciting events with anticipation. Jesus told his first followers to look forward to the coming of the Holy Spirit, but when the Spirit came things happened in a way that no one could have anticipated. Why the dramatics? Why wind, fire and multiple languages spoken?

Could it be that from its inception the church was (and is!) called to move beyond the comfort zone of being with people who are like us?

This weekend as we continue to explore The Foothills Way together we’ll look at our practice and value of Intentional Diversity. We’ll see how we’re already practicing this as a church family and we’ll ask ourselves: how can we lean even further into being the people that God has called us to be? What does Intentional Diversity have to do with the things that God wants his church to do?

See you soon!
