Hope, Help & Conquerors – Rev. Allan Brooks – Romans 8:22-39
Series: Pentecost
No one can argue how crazy 2020 has been, yet what can separate us from the love of God? Nothing! As we read from Romans this week, Pastor Allan reminds us of the importance of hope, the help we get from the Holy Spirit and the strength we have as conquerors in Christ; a strength to overcome everything that stands against us, for nothing can "separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

    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.

    Stewards of God’s Grace – Rev. Tai Courtemanche – 1 Peter 4:7-11
    Series: Pentecost
    Continuing this series on stewardship, Pastor Tai challenges us on what it means to be stewards of God's grace. As we prepare our commitments to the support of this church for next year, Pastor Tai reminds us of our declaration to uphold ministries of our church through our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness when we joined the church. Upholding the ministries of the church through these five methods is just as important as our monetary commitments. As we consider pledging our 2020 commitments, it is important for us remember these declarations as well make our monetary pledges.

    Remember & Forget – Rev. Allan Brooks – Malachi 3:6-12

    It is that time of year again when we discuss our stewardship in the church. Pastor Allan presents to us the state of our church and talks about strategies for tithing and how to move to offering a full tithe. When we faithfully tithe and trust in God's provision, we allow our selves to be open to God's blessing; for ourselves and our families, as well as within the church.
