As I have loved you: Love one another

In the 40 days leading up to Easter we invite you to join us in exploring what it looks like to trust God and live authentically before him in a community wide reading and journey of exploring the One Another’s. This Lent season we’re going to talk about how God meets us even in the winter seasons of our souls. Join us on Sunday mornings as we explore the biblical ‘One-Another’s’ and discover how God might be using others to show us his love, even in the coldest times.

So ride on: Community

The way in which we treat each other that people will know God.  All our other values of story, generosity and worship flow into community. Pastor Evan shares on Lake Ridge’s value of community. At the very beginning of creation we see in Genesis 1:26 we are made for community. God said let us make human beings in our image, in our likeness. Father, son and holy spirit created us in their likeness. This is why we have this deep soul calling to be connected. To have relationship in it's truest form is to admit you need them in order to grow into who you are. We must learn to rely on each other. It’s hard to admit we need each other. How are you learning to need the person next to you? Choose to need each other, because that is the message of God and what you actually made for.

Guest Speaker: Pastor Evan Spencer

We are thrilled to have Pastor Evan Spencer join us to share with Lake Ridge Community Church what God has laid on his heart. Pastor Evan continued in our sermon series on prayer "Can you hear me?" He shared how when we see our prayer life connected to our whole life then we can draw on a larger body of communication. Prayer is a conversation with the one who made us. It’s done in many different ways and a ton of different channels. Love of God and love of neighbour go together and our neighbours need us to be people who pray. He encouraged us to connect our prayer journey with those around us. And asked, "what if your neighbour and your neighbourhood needs most from you is not the perfect face, but the full exposed authentic journey of God?"
