Scripture Reading: Luke 17:11-19 Jesus Cleanses Ten Lepers 11 On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, 13 they called out, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” 14 When he saw them, he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were made clean. 15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. 16 He prostrated himself at Jesus’ feet and [...]

2 Oct 2016 10:00am – Authentic Love – Rev. Janet Gear

Due to a technical issue beyond our control, we are unable to stream and record this service. Scripture Reading: Romans 12 (The Message) Place Your Life Before God 12 1-2 So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the [...]

Scripture Reading: Luke 15:1-10, 1 Timothy 1:12-17 The Parable of the Lost Sheep 15 Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to him. 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, “This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them.”3 So he told them this parable: 4 “Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it? 5 When [...]

4 Sep 2016 10:00am – The Cost of Discipleship – Rev. Simon LeSieur

Unfortunately, we experienced a technical difficulty today and were unable to capture a video recording of this service.

21 Aug 2016 10:00am – Living Faith in the City – Rev. Simon LeSieur

Scripture Reading: Matthew 5:13-16 Salt and Light 13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. 15 No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they [...]

14 Aug 2016 10:00am – Living in the Work-Rest Rhythm – Rev. Dr. Richard Topping

We are tempted to make various kinds of activity some sort of substitute for Sabbath; but, Lord’s Day rest, when and where we acknowledge who and whose we are, can change a life. Life-giving rest filled with thanksgiving to the one who did the one thing needed, breathes life into us. Praise to God for the One who was born in obscurity, crucified tragically, and raised unexpectedly is also a life-giving witness to our 24/7 exhausted and depleted world. People and the planet are paying the cost for the restless busyness that knows no measure of success but greater productivity. [...]
