series image

1 John

This is a powerful series that emphasizes the confidence, boldness, and assurance of the gospel of Jesus Christ. At the same time, it is a challenge to Christians to practice a faith that reflects that confidence, boldness, and assurance in the way we live our lives.

Forgotten Virtues

We are to live our lives with principles outlined in the Bible, and sometimes we lose sight of those principles. This series reminds us of those virtues that can help us live Biblical lives.

Testimonies

As believers in Jesus Christ, we all have stories of how we've come through struggles to find our places with God. These are the stories of our lives in Christ, and are meant to let others know how our lives are changed.

Dealing with Difficult People

All of us have had to deal with difficult people at one time or another — irresponsible family members, touchy fellow workers, unreasonable bosses, cranky neighbors, harsh teachers, disrespectful students, snotty sales people, complaining customers, aggressive drivers, self-important officials. And even — God help us! — difficult church members!  This series looks at how to deal with three different types of difficult people.

Gospel Inside Disney

Media has a significant impact on our lives and the lives of our children.  As we grow we remember songs from movies that were meaningful to us, so this summer we are excited to talk about some of the songs from our favorite Disney movies that point to Biblical Truths.

series image

God wants you to know

In our Christian walk we tend to really focus in on "What does God want from me?" and "What does God want me to do?", in this sereis we are focusing on "What does God want us to know?".  We are looking at those intimate truths from the Bible that point us in the direction of hearing about God's desire for us.

Aroma

We are in the sphere of Christ, in his grill, marinated in his blood, steeped in his love, and when Jesus opens the cover, the aroma of Christ comes billowing out.

How To Wreck Your Life

Nobody plans for it to happen, but life can get pretty messy. Trouble with our relationships...harmful habits...feeling far from God...we look back and wonder, "How did I end up here?" Starting down that path is easier than you might think, unless you know what to look for.

series image

The Pursuit

How can we get Christians to embrace the gospel every day? I believe Isaiah 6:1–8 gives us a paradigm for addressing this need. Isaiah sees God in His holiness, that is, His supreme majesty and infinite moral purity. In the light of God’s holiness, Isaiah is completely undone by an acute awareness of his own sinfulness. This is what we need in our churches today. Because we tend to define sin in terms of the more flagrant sins of society, we don’t see ourselves as practicing sinners.

It is only after Isaiah has been totally devastated by the realization of his own sinfulness that he is in the right position to hear the gospel proclaimed to him by the seraphim: “Your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for” (v. 7).

When Love Comes To Town

The Bible states, "Though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing" (1 Corinthians 13:3). Love is one of the foundational principles of the Christian life. In fact, we can say that love is the foundation of Christianity. Without love, nothing else matters.

GENESIS 1:27 AND 31.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him;
male and female created he them . . . and behold it was very good.

The question of why man exits has been discussed throughout the ages.  Philosophers debate it, poets write of it, musicians herald it, and theologians proclaim it.  The true answer to this perplexing question is clearly and simply stated in the pages of Scripture in both the Old and New Testaments.  We need only look to the Bible for the answer.

series image

His Name

What's in a name?  There are many thoughts on this, we become excited about naming our children to the extent that we research their names meanings.  We evaluate how they are spelled, how they sound and determine for ourselves a level of satisfaction with the name.  In the Bible we are given names that Jesus, God's son, will be called, names that will draw us into His presence through relationship.  In this series we are looking at the impact and meaning of these names.

Leaving Lust Vegas

While we don't all have the same "Vegas" we all have something that lures us. From romance novels and chic-flicks to "adult" websites and late night TV, we desire things that are not ours and pursue position over others, lust is lurking around every corner. And it entices us to slide closer toward temptation but further ...from ... freedom. In this series we focus on moving out of the place and the danger of these sins, towards the freedom offered in Christ Jesus.

series image

The Edge

So often we see our lives as boring or routine, we seem to have lost sight of the idea that we are part of a much larger story.  We are part of a story where God has ushered us into adventure and risk, the Gospel is to compel us to reach out and live a life on the edge.  The edge is a place where safty is not the primary concern, where we can look at the horizon and the earth below us and see the beauty as well as the need.  This sereis calls us to be a people who seek to be part of the larger adventure that God has called us to and to be commited to reaching the needs of the world around us.

You Can't Say That

In this series we are going to discuss three popular topics that we are not supposed to discuss at dinner parties...Politics, Money, Sex.  Join us as we see what God's word has to say to us about these very important topics.

Heroes

Growing up many gravitate to super heroes, we enjoy them because there is something outrageously admirable about them.  We "Marvel" at their abilites to overcome adversity, we try to relate to a particular hero and hail them as our favorite.  In the Bible there are those who are considered heroes, whose lives we are able to learn much from and grow.

The Ghost

In this series we explore the biblical explaination and description of person of the Holy Spirit

Piety

Piety, or being pious, has a long history in the Christian worldview.  In its purest form it is simply a commendable or admirable devotion to God, but in our world today it has to some extent been marked with contradiction and stress.  Dictionaries define piety as professing or exhibiting a strict, traditional sense of virtue and morality, but it has also been defined as marked by false devoutness; solemnly hypocritical and rules oriented.  Here in lies the contradiction and our study will focus on the need to challenge the pharisitical piety in the face of the Gospel.

Passion Week

Passion Week (also known as Holy Week) is the time from Palm Sundaythrough Easter Sunday (Resurrection Sunday). Also included within Passion Week are Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. Passion Week is so named because of the passion with which Jesus willingly went to the cross in order to pay for the sins of His people.

Jonah: Portrait of a Prophet

The book presents God's forgiveness of a pagan people as a result of repentance. It teaches a practical lesson on the greatness of God's mercy. He forgives repentant sinners who seek to obey Him. God's mercy extends to rebellious preachers who repent, as well as to the pagan nations of the world. God is no respecter of persons. He seeks sinners who turn from their sin to Him.

Games People Play

From the cradle to the grave, games are a part of our lives. This series will use various board games as a metaphor or subject for discussions of biblical truths covering a wide range of practical matters.

A Savior For All People

Most of us have heard the Christmas story so many times that we think we know what it’s all about. But the fact is, we might have passed over some important pieces. If we look a little harder, we might find a whole new piece of the Nativity scene that’s been in the closet for years—never unwrapped.

series image

Boxology

Luke 18:18-23.  This passage is a troubling one. It was troubling for the disciples, for the wealthy young ruler, and for us. It seems too radical, too abrupt, too ... well, and too immoderate to suit our tastes. But it's easy to miss the truth when it is delivered in moderation. The truth, however, can be unmistakable when delivered unvarnished, undiluted. And that kind of powerful truth-telling Jesus is known for.  This two part series will look at the boxes we function with.  The box of the consumer and the box of the investor.

Monster's Inc

Monsters are things that scare and inhibit us in life.  We get scared of what’s in the closet so we close the closet doors when we go to bed, and then when we’re in bed we are scared of what is under the bed so we don’t step on the floor and become trapped by the monster afflicting us.  This series is intended to cover issues we have in life that do the same thing.  We struggle with bitterness, broken dreams and fear all of which rob us of life and trap us in a state of atrophy.   Together let’s travel this road to uncover the truth behind what is in the closet and what is under the bed, so we can truly live.

Identity Theft

I am excited to share our next Sunday sermon series called, “Identity Theft.” In the last 12 years, I have to come to the stark realization that one of the biggest issues for people in the Pembina Valley is their struggle with their God-given identity.

The dilemma with trying to address the identity issue is that people generally do not think of their true identity and simply live life buying into what they are told to be. A lot of our identity is shaped by our parents, peers, and the world. We are constantly faced with these influences in our lives; therefore it slowly erodes away at our identity, which should be rooted in what Christ has done for us on the cross.

If we are going to win this battle for our identity, then we will have to commit to going back to some of the basics. Our sense of significance, feeling accepted, being loved, and longing for security need to be found in Jesus Christ.

When our identity is rooted in the wrong things, then our perception of ourselves will be contorted. Even our view of others and the world will be twisted. Then this leaves us empty and dissatisfied.

In this series we will explore biblical principles about centering our identity on a strong foundation. We will cover 3-parts to this series:

  1. Part 1: “Who We Are Matters”
  2. Part 2: “How We Live Matters”
  3. Part 3: “Why We Do Things Matters”

I am praying from some big breakthroughs through this sermon series. This will launch us to greater things, as people in our church experience greater freedom and joy in their journey with Christ.

Confessions of a Pastor

All of us have issues in life, but for some reason we tend to consider our pastors to be above those issues.  It is as if we do not believe they are human as we are, this series will hopefully dispel the belief that pastors don't have issues that every believer can relate to.

MySpace: From Personal Space To Community

In this fragmented and individualistic culture, my suspicion is that the deep longing of a majority of people - whether they know it or not - is to experience authentic community. But where is this authentic community to be found? As a follower of Christ, I would love to say that this community can only be found in the church, for such is the ideal that is presented in our Scriptures.

series image

From Threat To Thrill

So many people are for giving and being generous, but when you bring up the topic of tithing, heads go down, feet shuffle and it goes quiet. Odd response to something that is intended to be a thrilling principle for Christians.  I think people see tithing as threatening rather than thrilling. Threatening to what they have, to their plans, to their theology to their status quo. If people could see the huge benefit to them personally behind tithing and test it and experience the thrill of it, many more would adopt this biblical direction.

Practical Atheism

Acknowledging God with our lips, but denying Him with our lives.  Practical atheism isn't limited to people who abandon church; it extends to all we who drift from Christ, even as we dutifully attend Sunday services. It's in the brief morning prayer that eventually becomes no prayer at all. It's in the way we emulate men rather than Christ. It's in the way we complain and mope, as if the things that trouble us don't pass through the hands of a loving God. It's the way we constantly seek our own good over the good of others.  In this series we will look at what the Scriptures have to say about some of the issues we face on a daily basis.
