Way Up The Hill – Rev. Allan Brooks – Matthew 14: 13-21
Series: Pentecost
When was the last time you witnessed God work a miracle? Better question, when was the last time you were aware of God at work around you? Most of the time we only see what God has done, or recognize His action as miraculous, well after the fact. This week we look at Matthew 14, when Jesus feeds the gathering of five thousand. We see this event as a miracle, but have you ever wondered how many people there had no idea what was going on? Pastor Allan discusses how most people only see things happening around them at face value and tend to miss God at work.

    Great is Thy Faithfulness – Rev. Allan Brooks – Lamentations 3:19-24
    Series: Pentecost
    Lamentations is a book of sorrows, of the Israelites lifting their grief to God. We find ourselves in a season of despair and desperate need of turning to God. Lift up your troubles and your sorrows, all of those things that concern you, for even in the darkest seasons God is faithful, and how great His faithfulness is.

    It’s Pentecost – Rev. Tai Courtemanche – Acts 2:1-21
    Series: Pentecost
    This is the weekend where we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit to the church, the advocate that Jesus mentioned before He ascended. We celebrate the Spirit of God that moves around and through us, guiding those who will listen and empowering us for the work of God's Kingdom. This is the time recorded in the Bible when the Apostles received the Holy Spirit, were empowered and began speaking in tongues, and 5,000 people heard the good news of Jesus. What a wonderful time to celebrate the empowering and unification of God's people through His Spirit.

    This Mother's Day, may the love that we share with our moms be a reminder and reflection of the love Jesus has for us, for much like the love and presence of Jesus, our mothers' love brings comfort, encouragement and joy.

Let this love be evident as we care for one another during this quarantine.

    The Lord is My Shepherd – Rev. Tai Courtemanche – John 10:1-10
    Series: Easter
    1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
    ~ Psalm 23

    You Are My Friends – Rev. Allan Brooks – John 15:9-17
    Series: Lent
    This week, we continue where we left off in John's Gospel, as Jesus explains what it looks like to live and remain in His love. Then Jesus calls the disciples His friends. Now, this is nothing earth shattering, surely He considers the group of people that have been traveling with Him and learning from Him His friends, but Jesus draws a distinction between these people simply being His disciples and expresses the level of care He has for them. Hear this today, Jesus loves you. Hold fast to His commands and remain in His love. He has chosen you. Yes, you. By the Holy Spirit at work through the scriptures and in the lives others that love Jesus, He has revealed all that He has learned from the Father to you. He willingly gave up his life for you. You are precious to Him. Jesus has called you friend. Now remain in His love and hold to His command, which is this: Love each other.
