How to Prepare for The Lord’s Supper

Audio: Text: Tonight we are going to be doing something a little special, something we haven’t done since I’ve been the pastor here, and that is to have an evening communion service. It’s interesting how this happened. Some people came to me and said that they felt like they wanted to “change up communion”. If you know me you’ll know […]

Church Relationships Can Get Complicated

Audio: Text: Welcome to the 60th sermon in of our study of the Apostle Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians! We started this series in April of 2016 and we’ve covered a lot of ground over the past couple years, but after long last, we’ve reached the final section where Paul is wrapping up the letter with his final greetings […]

Why Our Church Has a Membership Covenant

Sermon Audio: Sermon Text: When we become Christians we enter into a new family called the Church of Jesus Christ.

Truth In Love – Loving People in a Biblical Way

Podcast Audio: Our church’s mission statement says that we “share the love of Jesus” two ways: “….through Biblical Teaching and loving relationships.”  The second part of that is easy to understand.

The Importance of “We”

Podcast Audio: “I Need a New Seven-Hundred-and-Ten” A man walks into a car dealership.

Christian Integrity: Honouring The Faithful

Here’s the audio for the sermon: You may have noticed that I changed the title of this series. Instead of being “Being People of Integrity”, I’ve simply called it “Christian Integrity”, and that’s because I believe that it’s important to distinguish the fact that we are specifically talking about the characteristics of a person and church of faith. These things […]

Eating With Sinners (Mark 2:13-17)

We’ve already talked about how Mark is introducing Jesus as the one answer to all the important questions in the world.

Response to “Autistic Boy’s Family told to ‘Move or Euthanize Him'” – Why do People Get Sick?

I haven’t been posting for the past while because of a big move and some vacation time, but after coming across this piece of news on Facebook (also here), I felt I had to rush posting the sermon I preached this week. We’ve been going through the Gospel of Mark (I’ll post previous sermons soon) and asked the question: “Why do […]

Serving Others: General Areas of Service – The Four Core Christian Disciplines

We talked before about how every Christian is called to service, “Drinking the Cup” means accepting our divinely appointed destiny, acknowledging that we are “saved to serve” and that Christianity is NOT a commodity exchange. We serve sacrificially because of our connection to Jesus Christ the perfect model of a servant. What I want to cover today is how that works […]
