We Speak the Word of God – Rev. Allan Brooks – Isaiah 55_6-11
Series: Pentecost
Over the course of this past year, ministry and leadership groups have been involved in a strategic planning process as we look forward to the future of our church. Out of that process, we have highlighted three action points that identify who we have been as a church and are set to help guide us moving forward. This week, Pastor Allan focus touches on how we "Speak the Word of God." Speaking God's word is important not only as a community, but also as we go about our daily lives. Making sure that God's Word is present everyday is important to growing as a disciple.

    Hot Spots – Rev. Allan Brooks – Exodus 3_1-3
    Series: Pentecost
    The one connection we are concerned with on a daily basis is whether our phones have service or not. We have become a society that is dependent on WIFI access, or being able to have LTE. When we do not have those connections, we desperately search for a hot spot. When it comes to needing internet on our tablets or laptops, we set up that hot spot on our phones. How about your connection with God? Do you have full bars with LTE or are you in need of a hot spot? When was the last time you were at your hot spot?

    Psalm 4 is a psalm of reflection. Follow through this psalm with Pastor Tai and participate in a little self reflection and meditate on the words of the psalmist. Begin a practice of reflection each day in an effort to become more open to the movement of God's Spirit, and at the end of the day attempt Pastor Tai's challenge to us with this simple prayer: "Lord, into Your hands, I place my life."

    Frivolous Rejoicing – Rev. Tai Courtemanche – Luke 15:1-10
    Series: Pentecost
    Here in Luke 15, the Pharisees and teachers of the law began commenting to themselves about Jesus' actions of welcoming sinners around him and even partaking in meals with them. It is at this that Jesus begins telling a series of parables of people who rejoice over finding something that was lost. First we hear about the joy of a shepherd who reclaims on lost sheep of a flock of one hundred, then a woman who finds a lost coin. When each of these people find what they have lost, the rejoice and desire to celebrate with their friends and neighbors. To the Pharisees this rejoicing is nothing but frivolous, but Jesus claims that there is even more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents. This begs the question, if heaven rejoices over one repentant sinner, how much more should we rejoice over God's grace...?

    Are We All In – Rev. Allan Brooks – Luke 14_16-33
    Series: Pentecost
    Simple question really, are we all in following Jesus? Are you all in? As an individual and as a church, have we committed all of our being to honoring and following God? We pose this question because it is what Jesus requires of His church.

    Broken Cisterns – Rev. Tai Courtemanche – Jeremiah 2_4-13
    Series: Pentecost
    You know the saying about best laid plans... God equates them to broken cisterns. Speaking through the prophet Jeremiah, God accuses his people of two sins; they have rejected Him and chose to for themselves broken cisterns. Translation, God's people abandoned Him for false idols and established a "back up plan" for a since of security as opposed to trusting God who has proven himself time and time again. Trusting in God's care seems to be the one thing His people continuously struggle with, even with us today. This level of trust isn't necessarily easy, but it is a core part of being a disciple of Christ.

    Are We There Yet_ – Rev. Tai Courtemanche – Hebrews 11_1-3, 8-16
    Series: Pentecost
    One of the most frequent questions asked by kids, this is one questions most of us want to ask throughout our journey with God. While we may be anxious and impatient, we must learn to trust God without getting all of the answers, just like kids on a family trip. For God is faithful and always fulfills His promises.
