SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 30 (Congregational Meeting!)

Last week we looked at the call of Samuel and how God sometimes whispers our name in the spiritual night.  This week we will reflect on the inspiring call of Isaiah and his response to God, 'Here I am! Send me.’  Are these words just for a chosen few, or are they words for all of us?

After the service we will be having a Congregational Meeting to vote on the church budget and to discuss other church related items. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please vote using the absentee ballot! Contact bridgecc@telus.net for a ballot!

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 23

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.

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 9

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.

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 2

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.

SUNDAY AUGUST 26

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.

SUNDAY AUGUST 19

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!

SUNDAY AUGUST 12

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.
