New Sermon series: "Rebuilding the Church" 

Rebuilding the Temple of God is a task that all Christians are given.  It involves reestablishing the altar of God in our hearts, a place where we sacrifice our self-made identities and self-justifications to allow God to reign in our lives.  But it also involves re-connecting with our fellow Christians in the local church, the community and the broader connection.  It means sacrificing our individual agendas so that God's agenda can take root in our fellowship and guide us out beyond ourselves into the community where we carry out the mission of the Holy Spirit to bring God's love to new people in new ways and in new places.  Let us celebrate this rebuilding together!

Embrace Blessing

Sunday, November 3, 2019

If someone told you that they were going to the hardware store to buy groceries and then to the grocery store to buy clothing, you might think them a little daft.  But when it comes to seeking blessings, we are, it seems, perfectly at home looking in all the wrong places. 

Rebuilding the House of God

Sunday, November 10, 2019

Across this continent, churches are shrinking, losing vitality and closing.  In nearly every town and city you can find at least one former church building that has new life as housing, shops or a civic center.  Is this the end of the church?  By no means!  God is not finished with the transformation of the world here.
