Come on out to our monthly Neighbourhood Dinner on Monday night! If you can volunteer with set up, please come lend a hand starting at 5:30pm! Dinner will be served at 6:00pm. Hope to see you there!
The story of Samuel’s call in 1 Samuel 3 is a literary masterpiece. What seem to be mere physical descriptions in the story actually have deep spiritual meaning. Join us this week as we reflect on how God remains faithful in his call even when it seems the night and darkness are closing in.
Too often in life it seems that God is silent, that prayers go unanswered and we find ourselves overwhelmed with life's situations. However, in the Gospel of John, Jesus is called “Word" and “life." Join us his Sunday as we take a look at this interesting paradox, of how God is so often silent but yet comes to us as Word.
As we wish summer a fold farewell and begin the transition into the busy September season, we will spend time this Sunday reflecting on how to remember and practice our identity as people of God when the craziness of life begins to fly. Join us as we take a deep breath together in what for many people is a very stressful time.
This coming Sunday we welcome guest speaker Anthonie Jansen. Anthonie will be preaching on Matthew 14: 22-36 (see text below) and the title of the sermon is "Rough Seas." Hope to see you there!
Jesus Walks on the Water
22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
29 “Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
34 When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place recognized Jesus, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to him 36 and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed.

This Sunday we welcome guest preacher Pastor Peter Stellingwerff! Peter will be preaching on Luke 15: 1-2 & 11-24:
We often identify with the lostness of the two sons in these parables and on being found by the loving Father. Is Jesus, however, calling us to identify with something greater in the parables of Luke 15?
Hope to see you there!
Often in times of grief and suffering our natural instinct is to isolate ourselves—we stop going out, stop going to church, and we don’t want to let people in. But Psalms 42 & 43 give us a different pattern, showing us the role that a community of believers can play on our behalf in times of difficulty. Join us as we look at this path from sorrow to support in community.

Join us this Sunday as we welcome Pastor Margaret Hummelman! Pastor Marg will be preaching on Ruth: A Biblical Soap Opera. The theme is how God treats the outcast, the damaged, the refugees, the wounded ones. We have all been or are in these places and God sees and hears and reaches for any and all who suffer.
Scripture: Ruth 1: 20-22
Isaiah 40: 28-31
What is it that we chase for a successful life? Who is it that we think is wise? Join us this Sunday as we reflect on Proverbs 8 and the nature of God’s wisdom, something that is more personal than we could ever know, but also more transcendent than we could ever imagine!
This coming Sunday, George will be tag-teaming the service with his brother-in-law, Bryan Brandsma, who will be preaching from Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Hope to see you there!
This week we begin our summer preaching series on Psalms and Proverbs, entitled, “Words of Life." Join us as we look at Psalm 1 and what it means to be a “tree planted by streams of water." All are welcome!
As the school year comes to an end and we celebrate some of our kids moving on from Kids Worship, we will be looking at the theme of the “Journey of Faith” and the call to persevere in our faith even when the going gets tough.
REMINDER: There is a lot going on this coming Sunday:
- Special Offering for Refugee Coordinator
- Kids Worship Graduation
- Celebration of Kids Worship Offering
All are welcome, hope to see you there!
Come on out to our Neighbourhood Dinner on Monday, June 18! If you can volunteer with set up, please come lend a hand starting at 5:30pm! Dinner will be served at 6:00pm. If it's nice weather we will enjoy dinner outside! Hope to see you there!
This Sunday, June 10, we will welcome guest pastor Kevin Lobert - Youth Pastor at Langley Immanuel CRC! Kevin will be preaching on Genesis 6 - 9. The theme of the sermon will be God remembering his people. Hope to see you there!
Having just celebrated Pentecost, this week are going to look at how the Spirit can transform our lives by looking at the story of Jesus & Nicodemus in John 3:1-17. Join us as we seek to examine our own lives and the world around us through the reborn lens of the Holy Spirit.
This Sunday we celebrate Pentecost, the coming of the Spirit to empower the church for God’s mission in the world. To signify this we have joined with ten other local churches all agreeing to reflect on Acts 1:1-8, and also agreeing to spend time in prayer for each other. This service will truly be a practise of the unifying work of the Spirit!
This Sunday (reminder: it's Mothers Day!) will conclude our sermon series on calling and gifting. In light of that, we are going to do something a bit different. Instead of a regular sermon we are going to participate in a spiritual gifts exercise and discussion. This will be a casual environment where we can come to a deeper understanding of God’s work in our life and how he may be calling us to serve.
Join us this week Sunday as we focus on the different ways that God has “graced/wired/gifted” us to serve in his kingdom. We will be focusing on the gifting list in Rom. 12:6-8. The message this week will lay the ground work for next week, May 13th, when we will spend out time together discovering the gifts we each have!
