David and Co. Good Company Corrupts bad Character


Speaker: Paul Cumin

The heart of God is a heart for humanity


Speaker: Thomas Coldwell (MCC Alberta)


Text: Matthew 5:1-10


When asked by a religious expert to sum-up God’s greatest commandment, Jesus says, “Love God and love your neighbour.” Motivated by God’s love and compassion for all, Mennonite Central Committee responds to basic human needs and works toward peace and justice worldwide. We are all invited to “go and do likewise.”

Living Stones: Ethnicity and Identity as God’s Holy People


Speaker: Michael VandenEnden

Scripture: 1 Peter 2:1-10


At a time when Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, the Epistle of 1 Peter reminds Christians that their truest “national” and “ethnic” identity is with the people of God.  This sermon explores contemporary issues related to the call to be God’s people in the world, and challenges the listener to embrace the their faith identity in all spheres of life.

Principled Living the Jesus Way; The Principle of Security


Speaker: Henry Janzen


Text: James 3:1-18


What spiritual principles should guide our choices in life? What is the compass by which we make day to day decisions? Jesus said that in order to follow him we must be willing to sacrifice even family and family events.


The message will focus on the first of four principles by which all Christians should make decisions in life….the principle of security. Jesus and other biblical writers said that we should be careful in our words. Today’s message will show how we can do that in everyday situations.
