Whose Friend Are You? | St. Albert Alliance October 17, 2021 Sermon
October 17, 2021 • Jeremy and Lisa Peters
Though the letter from the Apostle James was written two millennia ago, it is strikingly relevant to our current cultural moment. Speaking to the church, he asks, “What causes fights and quarrels among you?” and proceeds to challenge followers of Jesus about whether they are truly friends of God, or whether they are friends of the world; about whether they are resisting the devil or resisting God. Join us as Pastors Jeremy & Lisa reflect on the confronting admonitions in James 4.

We all want our life to matter, don’t we? At our core we desire to know that we’re living a life that is bigger than ourselves…a life of significant meaning and purpose, that actually makes a difference in a good way for the people and even world around us. Join us as we continue on in our sermon series, More Than a Hashtag, studying the book of James, as Pastor Lisa shares some key insights from James 3 on how we can intentionally choose wisdom and live with the meaning and purpose God made us for!
Sticks and Stones - The Power of Words
October 3, 2021 • Mike Sotski
Growing up as kids we learn quick cliches like Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me. These are supposed to be our first line of defence against the power of words spoken against us. We can all probably attest no matter how many times we recited those cliches, the words spoken actually did hurt. Join us Sunday as we take a look at the power held in one the smallest parts of the body and the power it contains.

Talk is Cheap | St. Albert Alliance September 26, 2021 Sermon
September 26, 2021 • Mike Sotski
Have you heard the statement “Talk is Cheap?” We often associate it with those who say one thing and do another. It reveals in us a desire for people to follow through on what they say. To live in a way that words and actions are congruent, that words become more than what we say, but are lived in what we do. Join us as we explore what it means to have faith that is put into action, that our faith would be more than just empty words.
Mercy Triumphs Over Judgement | St. Albert Alliance September 19, 2021 Sermon
September 19, 2021 • Carl Waldron

Foundation for the Living | St. Albert Alliance September 12, 2021 Sermon
September 12, 2021 • Jeremy Peters
The book of James is an immensely practical book, addressing so many real-time issues in our human experience and one of the questions that is framing this series is ‘how do we move beyond hashtag awareness to holy, Jesus-directed action?’ Central to answering this question lies in how we relate to the Bible as the Word of God, and James has some important insight for us in this regard. We look forward to having you join us in-person or online this Sunday as Pastor Jeremy guides our collective learning.
Trials are Fertile Ground for Triumph | St. Albert Alliance September 5, 2021 Sermon
September 5, 2021 • Lisa Peters
Jesus was not kidding when He said, “in this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world”. Difficulty or trouble is something that we experience on a regular basis and in his letter to the early church, James encourages us to consider trials as an opportunity for great joy! What does he mean by this? Join us as we begin an exciting new sermon series studying the book of James and Pastor Lisa shares the encouragement that Jesus is faithful and does bring much good from the trials we experience as He redeems all in His time.
