When asked about their religious affiliation, more people than ever are answering, “None of the above.” In particular, 34% of Generation Z (those born after 1996) have no religious affiliation. This is the highest figure of any generation ever. Join us as we look at the necessity of reaching our children with the message of God’s love.
“Empty” brings feelings of hopelessness, disappointment, and pain. The holidays can often amplify these feelings. But we are not alone. The disciples were filled with all the disappointment of their expectations, the grief of losing a friend, the worry about what was next, and the hopelessness of the situation. But this emptiness can actually be an invitation to experience the Good News of the Gospel. The tomb is empty because we serve a resurrecting king!
Join us throughout 2019 as we press in for God’s breakthrough in our lives. While most of our sermon series happen on sequential Sundays, this sermon series is spread out through 2019 as a time set aside for communion, prayer, and seeking God for what he wants to do in our lives.
Sermons in this series:
This past Sunday was the first Sunday of the Lent season, which is a time of confession and preparation for Easter. But because of our familiarity with our own legal system, I think many of us misunderstand to point and power of confession. So join me as we look at Psalm 51 and unpack what it means to truly confess and repent.
Join special guests, the Dilts, as they share about their work in the Algonquin area with First Nations peoples.
Join special guests, the Bensons, as they share about their work in Toronto.
In John 6, Jesus feeds the crowd of 5000 with a little boys lunch of five loaves of bread and two fish. Though it seemed so insignificant and insufficient, God used it in a miraculous way to feed the people. God wants to use you too. Even if you don’t think you have anything to offer, God wants to work through you to accomplish miraculous things. Join Pastor Tim for this short reflection from our special family service this past weekend.
In Psalm 34, David writes, “Taste and see that the Lord is good!” Maybe you’ve seen the phrase written on some art at your local Christian book store, but is it really the nice flowery statement that we have turned it into. Actually, David wrote this Psalm in a time of incredible disappointment and struggle. So join Pastor Tim as he helps us read Psalm 34 in the context it was written and allow it to speak hope into your soul.
