The Truth Shall Set You Free
Encountering Jesus
- Sermon Series

February 16/17

Speaker: Pastor Carla Olsen Draper

Scripture: John 8:31-47

Have you ever seen a picture of an elephant held in place by a small rope tied to its leg? It makes no sense. This enormous creature could break free with an easy tug, yet there it stands. I'm told that as a young animal the elephant is conditioned to "know" that this rope has the ability to restrain it. Later in life, it is a lie alone that holds the elephant captive. This weekend as we hear Jesus confront the lies his listeners believed, we'll consider how the Devil seeks to deceive us as well. In the midst of the real challenges in life, our prayer is that we will encounter Jesus and learn how to live as his true disciples, set free indeed.

People Matter

Sep 15/16

Speaker: Ian Trigg

Scripture: 2 Cor 5:11-21

It doesn’t take too much insight to discover the reality that Jesus truly loved people. Whether young or old, Jew or Gentile, sinful or sweet, Jesus constantly responded to people with remarkable compassion and concern. He taught that the most important thing in the world was to love God, and he followed that teaching with a call to love neighbours passionately and intentionally. In a world fascinated with The Self, to care for others requires a deliberate decision. We must constantly work to change how we see others in the light of Jesus’ teaching.  That’s what this weekend’s Taste of Foothills is all about. The Foothills Way is that people matter to Jesus more than we could ever begin to imagine. How we can allow that value to shape the way we live, the way we treat others, the way we view the world? There will be good food to enjoy and even better opportunities to connect with ministries that are changing lives and destinies. It will be a great weekend!  Can’t wait to see you all here!  Stay warm!
