The last message in our sermon series Eat this Book Pastor Preston shares the story in Luke 15 about how we come to every story in the bible with a particular set of views. People did this in Jesus' day too. Did you know that? But Jesus offers some views that are a bit different from that. The son in the story believes the notion of less love. That there was a love that an up and down flow and he lives that way. We worry sometimes we will love others too much, give too much and somehow deplete ourselves. In reality we are missing out on the depth of love that exists.

We continue in our sermon series of Eat this Book with Pastor Evan sharing the story in John 9. He discusses the way we make our way through change. The goal of this story is to realize where are the places that God is in this story and in our story. It is in the context of your story that God is shaping and changing you. What if the chaos and fears in change are the beginning of God building something new?
The Good News sermon series continues with Pastor Evan exploring how we are called to be the people of good news. He looks at the story of Abraham and how the beginning of God's people started with no roots, no home or building. The people of God are a "sent" people. Pastor Evan explores the story of Abraham being sent to be a blessing. Think about how we live out the gospel in our communities. It’s about you being person who engages your neighbour and being who you are. We need to move away from strategy to embrace engaging those people around you simply because God put them in our lives to bless.
