What to Expect

What to Expect

What are your services like?

Our Sunday morning worship services have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. From the moment you enter the building, you can expect to be greeted and handed a bulletin detailing some of the week’s upcoming events. People tend to visit in the foyer before the service and sit wherever there is room when the service begins at 10:30. Once the service begins, expect to hear a great mix of songs, a story, prayer, perhaps a creative surprise mixed in now and again, and the Bible read with relevant applicable thoughts gleaned from the text. We wrap things up shortly before noon. At that point, feel free to slip out quickly, or stick around and enjoy meeting a new friend or two after the service.

What’s up this weekend?

November 10/19 – Remembrance Day

Scripture: Nehemiah 5 / Sermon Title: Building up the Troops

You can build a great relationship when gardening, or camping, or driving or working, or playing a sport.  The activity is merely where the relationship happens.  God used Nehemiah primarily to restore a relationship between God and people.  The re-building of the walls (for which Nehemiah is famous) was the activity God used to invite His people back into a healthy relationship with Himself and among themselves. Thus Rebuilding Faith was as important as rebuilding walls – in this case, the two cannot be separated.

This Sunday we notice that Nehemiah got angry – good and angry – good and angry again!  What made him angry was that the people were not united in God’s purpose, but fractured with self interest.  If only this were an ancient problem that has long since disappeared! Because it is not, join us this Sunday to see how Nehemiah’s anger motivated him to get involved Building up the Troops so they were free to move ahead with intention.

November 17/19 – Speaker: Scott Penner

Scripture: Nehemiah 6 / Sermon Title: Vision Guided Trajectory

You can build a great relationship when gardening, or camping, or driving or working, or playing a sport.  The activity is merely where the relationship happens.  God used Nehemiah primarily to restore a relationship between God and people.  The re-building of the walls (for which Nehemiah is famous) was the activity God used to invite His people back into a healthy relationship with Himself and among themselves. Thus Rebuilding Faith was as important as rebuilding walls – in this case, the two cannot be separated.

Sometimes doesn’t it feel like there is just too much to do?  Interestingly, this Sunday we notice that Nehemiah was called to do less.  He was again challenged to change the trajectory of his steps, by adding more into his schedule.  However, his firm conviction of purpose coupled with a mature dependence on God, freed Him up to let this temptation also pile up in a rotting heap beside all the others.  By actually doing less, Nehemiah stayed on the vision guided trajectory of his time that God placed on his heart.
