Sunday, June 13

This Sunday, our Gospel comes from the Book of John 7: 37-39 where Jesus invites anyone who thirsts to come to him and drink so that they will be rivers of living water brimming and spilling out of their depths.

Our second passage comes from the Book of Acts which tells the story of how the disciples came together as church after the ascension of Jesus. In the passage for Sunday (Acts 2: 37-47), we hear how thousands changed their life after hearing a sermon by Peter and joined the early church. Read More …

This Sunday, we come along side Nicodemus as he meets with Jesus under the cover of darkness to learn about this new life that Jesus speaks of (John 3:1-17) . We also listen in as the Prophet Isaiah hears a call on his heart to step out into service of God even as he wrestles with his own inadequacy to be of much service to God (Isaiah 6: 1-8). These are powerful texts of call. Powerful stories of how the Spirit moves in people’s lives. We will consider what the Spirit may have in store for us as we discernment how we are to emerge from this COVID-19 time of isolation, fear and loss.

It is fitting that we will also share in the blessing of a baptism and the reaffirmation of our call as a congregation to nurture each and everyone as a beloved child of God and member of the household where Love reigns. Read More …

This Sunday we celebrate Pentecost, which some call the birthday of the Church! We remember that after Jesus ascended to heaven, God sent the disciples a powerful helper in the form of fire and wind. The Holy Spirit came to fill and transform them, equipping them with all they needed to share and receive the Good News of Jesus in new ways.

We are grateful to Jaap van Reijendam for preaching and leading worship this Sunday while Rev. Stacy is away. May our hearts and ears be open to Holy Spirit as we share in worship together! Read More …

This is the final Sunday in Eastertide. For the past many weeks we have been walking along side the disciples as they have experienced the risen Christ and have come to metabolize the forgiveness he has brought.

This Sunday, we listen in as Jesus prays to God. Jesus asks God to be close to the disciples as God has been close to him. For Jesus is now sending the disciples out into the world to do as he has done.

Sunday, May 9

This Sunday we continue with John’s Gospel and Jesus’ words telling his disciples they are to abide in his love and to love one another. He tells them this “so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made complete”, he says (John 15: 9-17).

In this past year of loss, uncertainty and fear, joy may be the farthest thing from our hearts. How are we to understand what Jesus is saying? How do disciples come to understand the joy of which Jesus speaks?. Read More …
