The "S" Word (Part 4): Submitting to Husbands
May 22, 2018 12:10 PM PDT
In a day and age when it is very unpopular for a man to tell a woman what it is she is supposed to do, Pastor Jake humbly suggests that in order to be in submission to Jesus, wives need to submit to their husbands, and husbands need to love their wives. If we don't submit to Jesus, then we don't believe in Jesus. But does Jesus require us to submit to other people that we live life with? And the answer to that is yes! And we are to submit in very particular and practical ways. (Colossians 3:11-25, 1 Peter 3:1-6, Ephesians 5:22-33)The Adventures of Ruth and Naomi
May 17, 2018 06:55 AM PDT
Pastor Mike Hotson preaching on mothers day, honouring moms, and the wisdom and love that mothers give to their children. Mothers, be encouraged today, that you can champion this title. This sermon weaves through the story of the book of Ruth, showing the hope that Ruth and Naomi had in the midst of their difficult circumstances.The "S" Word (Part 3): Submitting is Believing
May 07, 2018 10:54 AM PDT
We continue our series on Biblical Submission. This sermon is based on the Gospel. Our response to the Gospel is in two parts: to believe that Jesus rose from the dead, and to declare with our mouths that "Jesus is Lord". But what does it mean that Jesus is Lord? The word "Lord" has a very narrow semantic range: a person exercising absolute ownership rights, a master or owner. To say that Jesus is our Lord is to say that Jesus is our master, or that Jesus is our owner. And that means that we have to submit to Him. The bottom line is that if we do not submit to Jesus, then we don't actually believe in Jesus. (Romans 10:1-13, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, James 4:7-8, 1 John 2:3-6)The "S" Word (Part 2): Submission and Suffering
May 01, 2018 08:19 AM PDT
We continue considering the topic of Biblical Submission; particularly in regard to suffering. The first time the word "submit" is used in the Bible is in the story of Hagar in Genesis 16. God tells Hagar to submit to her mistress Sarai, even though Sarai was tormenting her and causing her suffering. It doesn't make a lot of sense to us. Why would God tell Hagar to go back into suffering? To submit into suffering? Could it be that God intends us to experience suffering? Could it be that God is inviting us to join in suffering for the sake of the Gospel? (Genesis 16:1-16, 1 Peter 2:18-25, 2 Timothy 1:6-12, John 16:33)The "S" Word (Part 1): An Introduction to Biblical Submission
April 23, 2018 08:03 AM PDT
We start a new series on a subject that is not popular to speak about in polite and politically correct society. We start a series on the subject of Submission. Submission is often for us something that we consider to be a detriment or a weakness, yet in the Bible, submission is a virtue and at the very centre of the Gospel message. Biblical Submission is not about domination or punishment, but it is a personal choice. Doing things "my way, with my goals, in my comfort zones" is self centred living which is the opposite of Submission. Submission is doing something someone else's way... God's will or our will... and may His will be done in our lives... (Isaiah 53:1-12, Luke 22:42, Philippians 2:5-11)This is How We Go (A Mission's Spoke Update)
April 12, 2018 08:41 AM PDT
In the Great Commission, Jesus commands His disciples to "Go and Make Disciples..."
The missions committee presents their strategic plan for HOW they go and make disciples: by partnering with missionaries, both locally and around the world.
We presented our Interpretive Grid, used for discerning which missionaries to choose to support, and as a means of having some standard of accountability for our missionaries.
We also were excited to present a new missionary couple that we have added to our roster: Steven and Johana Klassen, and their daughter Aisha.
We have also taken on a new local mission organization: Evergreen Christian Ministries (Stayner Camp and Camp Mishewah). We are excited to announce a mission trip to Camp Mishewah, taking place May 27th to June 3rd.
Finally, we ended with an update on our 2018 missions partnership with Raney Brown in Italy.Easter in Emmaus
April 05, 2018 07:10 AM PDT
This Easter we consider the resurrection account from the gospel of Luke. The sermon is given in the form of a 3 scene play. The 1st scene is at the tomb in Jerusalem. The 2nd scene is on the road to Emmaus, and in the town of Emmaus. The final scene is back in Jerusalem, when Jesus appears to the disciples. And throughout all of these scenes, the different people have various reactions to the news of Jesus' resurrection: wonder, remembering, discussion, doubt, downheartedness, or passionate excitement...Palm Sunday (Pastor Mike Hotson)
March 29, 2018 09:53 AM PDT
Pastor Mike lead us through the Palm Sunday account provided us by the gospel of Luke. We looked at the context leading up to the triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The key point is this: are we believing in a concept of Jesus that are comfortable with, or do we believe in the Jesus of the Bible... the Jesus who fulfilled prophecy?The Genesis (Part 10): The prophecy
March 20, 2018 06:40 AM PDT
The final sermon in this sermon from the first 9 chapters of Genesis. Really, the series would have done well to end last week, with the nice tie-in between chapter 1 and the beginning of chapter 9. But the account of Noah finishes off with this strange story about Noah getting drunk, passing out, and then cursing his son Ham. And we don't often know what to make of this account. But this story is the foundation of beginning (the genesis) of the rest of the ENTIRE OLD TESTAMENT. It sets the stage for God's salvation purpose in choosing the Israelites as "His Chosen People." And so it is important to finish where the Bible finishes the story, and not to finish the series where it would make a nice tidy sermon series ending. (Gen 9:18-29, Romans 11:13-24, John 15:1-8)The Genesis (Part 9): The covenant
March 13, 2018 06:30 AM PDT
This sermon considers the first half of chapter 9 of Genesis. We consider the universal covenant that God makes with all mankind and all living things on the earth. And the sign of this covenant is the rainbow, which is a reminder for God so that God will remember his covenant to never destroy all life on earth with a flood again.
