Identity Crisis Solved
Thy Kingdom Come
- Sermon Series

June 22/23, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

Scripture: Matthew 3:13-17

This weekend we get to visit the initial moment that launched Jesus’ public ministry – his baptism. The circumstances around it are incredibly interesting, and we'll take a little time to consider them, but the real impact of the account are connected to the words the Father spoke to Him: they are words of confirmation, words of consolation, and words that we all need to hear, know, understand and embrace.

We'll consider the Father’s amazing love for us as well this weekend; we'll seek to embrace his remarkable purpose for our lives; and we'll allow His truth to shape our identity.  We'll be blessed and challenged and encouraged! And there might even be a few of us that will want to be baptized ourselves!

I so looking forward to being together at church and again at Bowness Park Sunday afternoon for an old fashioned church picnic! I deeply hope you’ll be able to join us and pray that the weather might be willing to cooperate! 

Blessings of peace and joy to you! 

p.s. If you haven't already, will you help us to know how many to prepare food for by purchasing your Picnic tickets online?

All In

May 25/26, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

Scripture: Matthew 13:44-46

 

“All In” is a phrase more often associated with gambling than with Kingdom living, but there is much we can learn from it! My Dad always taught me to do nothing half-hearted in life because you will always be disappointed with the result. What is true in virtually every arena of life is equally true in the spiritual realm. 

Too often, we lean into God only a little and then wonder why life seems, well, disappointing. Jesus gave His all for us, and He calls us to do the same for Him. It’s when we understand the wonder of His love and grace towards us that we truly lean “all in” to Him and to His will for our lives. This weekend, we’ll consider the wonder of the gift He makes available to us and the best way to respond. It will be encouraging and challenging, and I hope you will be able to join us in worship. Church is so much grander when you are here!

Have a blessed weekend, and I so look forward to being together!
