    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.

    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

    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.

    This I Believe – Rev. Tai Courtemanche – 1 Timothy 6:11-16
    Series: Epiphany
    What is it that you believe? Do you know why you believe it? Throughout the New Testament, the Apostles consistently recall the scriptures (the law and the prophets that make up our Old Testament) to show how Jesus fulfilled all that was spoken about Him. As the church grew around the world, the early church leaders organized their beliefs into creeds to guide the churches growth and help people understand the fundamentals of the faith. Today, we continue to recite these creeds as a proclamation of our faith, stating to the world "This, this I believe."
