    Holy Love – Rev. Allan Brooks – John 21_15-17
    Series: Easter
    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. And as we continue through this Easter Season, celebrating the resurrection of Christ, may our love for Jesus be known. 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.

    I Am the Vine, You Are the Branches – Rev. Tai Courtemanche – John 15:1-8
    Series: Lent
    Online church starting this week. We will do what we can in the coming weeks to continue to bring you the as close to an average Sunday experience as we can. This week, as we continue through Lent, Pastor Tai takes us through John 15, an iconic passage where Jesus tells His disciples that He is the vine, the life giver, and they are the branches, the ones that bring the fruit of the kingdom to the world. And God the Father, He is the good gardener who prunes the tree to bear the best fruit possible.

    You Are Salt and Light – Rev. Tai Courtemanche – Matthew 5:13-16
    Series: Lent
    Salt and Light, terms we use regularly around the church. But what does it really mean for us who are definitely not made of salt nor beings that produce light? This week, Pastor Tai walks us through basics of what it means to be "the salt of the earth" and "a light to the world" through Jesus. As we patiently make our way through this new pandemic, it is important for us to remain ambassadors of the Gospel and light bearers of God's love.

    I Am the Light – Rev. Allan Brooks – John 8:12-18
    Series: Lent
    Jesus tells us that He is "...the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." He is the light that shines when the trials of life close in around us, the light that guides our path when the way is unclear and the light that sustains hope, joy and peace. Coming to us in the fullness of God's promise, the sustainer of life comes to be so much more. May Jesus light your path this Lenten season. Follow after Jesus and receive the Light of Life.

    Lent in Secret – Rev. Allan Brooks – Matthew 6:1-6
    Series: Lent
    Lent in secret... most of us talk to each other about what we give up or are trying to do, but there is something special about keeping your Lenten practice between you and God. Jesus, during what we call the sermon on the mount, tells those that would hear, "...6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." Jesus compares this action against those who would pray where others can see them, claiming that if you only pray or practice your faith to gain the approval of others, then that is all you will get. For us, lent is a special season in the church for everyone to take up a holy practice, and while most of us are doing this at the same time, the purpose for these practices are only fulfilled when your focus is on God, not on others and not whatever you may be giving up. Spend this lent in secret, focused on God, becoming closer to God, within this holy practice.

    Series: Epiphany
    Have you ever found somewhere special, somewhere that leaves you thinking, "surely God is in this place." This week we look at Jacob's story from Genesis 28, as he stopped in Bethel for the night and came to this precise realization as Pastor Allan recounts the history of our church.
