Sermon For Sunday June 9th, 2024

This week we conclude our series on Colossians with the call to let Christ transform every area of our lives in Colossians 3:17-4:6. In particular we focus on how this should shape relationships within families and households, and the challenge of how to apply Paul’s teaching in Colossians 3:18-4:1 (and other challenging scriptures) to our lives today.

Sermon For Sunday June 2nd, 2024

This week we take an important detour in our series on Colossians. The short Letter to Philemon (just 25 verses) is essential to understanding what Paul has to say about the Christian household and slavery in Colossians 3:18-4:6. So, we’ll spend this message in Philemon and finish up that final part of Colossians on June 9.

A special thank you to St. Paul’s Church, Carluke for allowing us to use their sanctuary for our service this weekend during the Canadian Open.

Sermon For Sunday May 26th, 2024

This week we continue our series on the Paul’s Letter to the Colossians, by looking at Colossians 3:1-17. We explore what Paul means when he says we die and rise with Jesus, and how this is lived out practically in a life of gratitude and goodness.

Sermon For Sunday May 19th, 2024

This week we continue our series on the Paul’s Letter to the Colossians, by looking at Colossians 2:1-23. This is a very dense chapter, but the focus is helping us to recognize that if Jesus is everything Paul says he is in chapter 1, then he is more than enough to meet all of our needs.

Sermon For Sunday May 12th, 2024

This week we continue our new series on the Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Colossians. This week we look at Colossians 1:9-29.

Sermon For Sunday April 7th, 2024

This week we continue our new Easter series , “He Goes Ahead Of Us.” We pick up where we left off last week in Mark 16, looking at the resurrection stories told verses 9-20. These stories invite us to be open to the ways that Jesus is present with us as he calls us out into new journeys and challenges. He goes ahead of us, yet also walks with us.
