Intentional Diversity
The Foothills Way
- Sermon Series

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!

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!
