Seriously now, what are the chances that a group of uneducated, young adult fishermen, political activists, government employees, and brothers with anger management issues, who have no social standing, no media platform, no political connections, no strategic plan, no money and by the way, no building to meet in…what are the chances that a little group like this – with no earthly leader – could have a role in seeing the world turned upside down and the beginning of countless millions of people finding new life in Jesus? This should’ve been the ultimate mission impossible…but it wasn’t. Why not? Join us as Pastor Jeremy continues our sermon series on the Last Words of Jesus.

Often in life, when we are given a choice between a hard path and one that is easier, we will most likely choose the easier one. One of the markers of following Jesus is he often calls us to follow a path that is marked by hardship and opposition. Join us online as we look at how Jesus encourages us to take the path less travelled, as we choose to live differently.
The Evidence of Love
April 18, 2021 • Lisa Peters
Obedience is a bit of a controversial word and can surface a variety of thoughts and emotional responses. Often, we think of obedience in the light of seeking to “earn” something, but Jesus has a different invitation for us. Join us as Pastor Lisa continues our Last Words series, sharing the gracious invitation of Jesus to obedience and the true gift it is.
Free to Flourish
April 11, 2021 • Jeremy Peters
This week, we return to our Last Words series (that began in the Fall of 2019 – disrupted by COVID), to continue to reflect on Jesus’ last words to His disciples before His death and resurrection. Pastor Jeremy will be returning to the opening verses of John 15 to consider how God works with skilful precision to free us from that which holds us back that we might more fully flourish under God.
Faith in Uncertainty
March 15, 2020 • Mike Sotski
How quickly things have changed in our world. The realities that we knew at the start of the week were completely turned upside down by the end of the week. When our works shifts at such a rapid pace many of the things we have placed our hope and security in suddenly don’t appear so hopeful or secure. Join us as we talk about how we navigate with faith in uncertain times.
Unforced Rhythms of Grace
March 1, 2020 • Jeremy Peters
Jesus does not pull any punches when he states matter of factly: “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” How does a human being stay connected to Jesus (the Vine) in such a way that the Holy Spirit produces good fruit in that person? Come and hear Pastor Jeremy share practical ways to grow an awareness of God’s Presence in our everyday life.
Walk This Way
Sermon of the Week - November 24, 2019 • November 24, 2019 • Mike Sotski
What is the response that comes to mind when you hear the word obedience? Often we think of duty or obligation with a little bit of guilt sprinkled in for good measure. Why do we push back against the act of obedience? Whether its rules from a parent or laws of the land, it seems we are always trying to see how far we can go. What would change in our lives if we were to practice a life of obedience? Join us Sunday as we take time to look at the example of obedience given for us.
November 10, 2019 sermon • November 10, 2019 • Jeremy & Lisa Peters
Sometimes people think: ‘If only we’d been there when Jesus was around, it would have been so much easier. He would have explained everything to us, and told us what to do.’ But interestingly, Jesus himself said the opposite - he said that it was better for us if He returned to the Father. Why? Come hear Pastors Jeremy and Lisa explore the next passage in our Last Word series and the promise of Jesus that we would never be alone.
Sermon of the Week - November 3, 2019 • November 3, 2019 • Jeremy & Lisa Peters

Sermon of the Week- October 27, 2019 • October 27, 2019 • Jeremy & Lisa Peters
The call of Jesus is not an invitation to a religious system, but to personal relationship with Himself. While the vulnerability of relationship can be uncomfortable at times, come and hear Pastors Jeremy & Lisa encourage us regarding the unique transformation that is only possible through personal engagement with Jesus.
My Home is Your Home
October 20, 2019 • October 20, 2019 • Jeremy & Lisa Peters
It’s often said that there’s no place like home. The home we long for is a place of security, safety and belonging. This is an inherent need we all have - to know where and with whom we belong. Come and hear Pastors Jeremy and Lisa continue our Last Word series, exploring John 14:1-5 and what it means to find our home with Jesus in the Father’s house.
More Than a Teacher
Sermon of the Week - October 13, 2019 • October 13, 2019 • Mike Sotski
Who is Jesus to us? It is a question that each of us need to answer because it reveals the role that Jesus will play in our lives. We can read the scriptures and be in awe of His wisdom, his compassion or even the way that he taught, but what happens if we see Jesus as more than just a teacher? What would it change for us? Join us Sunday as we look at titles, choices and the impact of both.
The Way Up is Down
October 6, 2019 Sermon • October 6, 2019 • Jeremy & Lisa Peters
We all love the idea of being thought of as a servant, but it’s a whole different story to be treated like one. Jesus once again models the true nature of servanthood and generosity in a thought-provoking expression of love and humility, showing us that the way up is down. Come and hear Pastors Jeremy and Lisa kick off our new sermon series, “Last Words,” based on John 13-17.
