Fully Devoted

Discipleship at Sanctus Church

Vision: 2020

Nehemiah 4, • January 5, 2020 • Jon Thompson & Dave Adams

Twice a year at Sanctus Church, we stop to recap where we've been and where we're going. It's a chance for us to celebrate what God has done among us, building faith to move forward.

Vision: Share the Work

John 13:1, Philippians 2:9, Luke 22:3, Ephesians 2:8 • September 22, 2019 • Jon Thompson

As we wrap up our series, Fully Devoted, Pastor Jon shares about some key aspects of the last two dimensions of our discipleship worldview, share the work and engage in mission. Behind growing generosity, behind joyful gift based ministry there is something that is the spring that feeds all of this, it is one of the quintessential markers of Christianity. it is the spiritual discipline of service which every single follower of Jesus is called to. The one ongoing action that Jesus shows us, from him leaving heaven, living, dying, and being raised is his servanthood. He serves us and the world. He chose to come and live among us, loving us and showing us the best way to live. He died for us, He overcame sin, death and the demonic for us, He rose for us and He gives us His spirit. This is the generous, self-giving service of Jesus and is the foundation, frame-work and grounding for how we serve one another and the church.

Vision: Discipleship

Romans 1:16, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 1 Corinthians 12:11 • September 15, 2019 • Jon Thompson

This morning Pastor Jon takes through our annual “check-up”, taking a moment to unpack what it really means what we say “fully devoted followers of Jesus.” Throughout this sermon we explore the importance of spiritual disciplines, spiritual gifts, guaranteed places of encounter and more, in the life of a believer. Our 5 discipleship dimensions were created as a way for our community to genuinely measure where they feel they are at in their discipleship journey and areas for growth. Series Description: Everyone at Sanctus Church is on a spiritual journey, whether it’s your first Sunday or you’ve followed Jesus for years. There can be great highs, and challenging lows in our life of faith. But what does a fully devoted follower of Jesus really look like? How can we make decisions this year to grow? Together we Celebrate Big. Connect Small. Walk with Jesus. Share the Work. Engage in Mission. We’re ALL in this together. All for the glory of God.

Vision: Alpha

Matthew 28:19-20, Romans 1:16, John 3:16 • September 8, 2019 • Jon Thompson

As we launch into another ministry year here at Sanctus Church, we are getting back to our foundations. This series, Fully Devoted, is all about equipping each of us in our own discipleship journey as followers of Jesus. This week, Pastor Jon will be discussing one of our 5 discipleship dimensions, Engage in Mission.  In a landscape that is post Christian, post modern and post social, one way we can engage in mission is to take the gospel, the good news of Jesus, to our families, workplaces and neighbourhoods. The ALPHA program has become incredibly helpful to Christians as a way to share the gospel clearly and facilitate healthy conversations about God and faith.  Hundreds of churches across Canada, including our own, will be launching the Alpha program in a few weeks. Join us in praying for these ministries, but also consider who you could invite and journey with through this incredible ministry.
