HELP – The Story of Hannah

January 13, 2019 | Pastor Daren Young

Scripture: 1 Samuel 1:1-28  Theme:  The bible is filled with men and women who cried out desperately to God for help. Hannah was a barren second wife – ridiculed and humiliated by the wife who easily bore children. Hannah wept and pleaded with God for a son, promising to give him back to the Lord. God would answer her prayer, but her story is not primarily defined by the son she would bare, but the God she would encounter in her brokenness.

LOVE DOES – Love Reassures

December 23, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture: Luke 1:26-56 Theme:  Love never stops believing. No matter how dark or difficult the circumstances or season, love never stops. Throughout all of God’s story, but most fully in the life and ministry of Jesus, we see a love that we can fully trust through every season of life.

LOVE DOES – Love Sacrifices

December 16, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture: Matthew 2:1-18 Theme:  “Love pursues blindly, unflinchingly and without end. Even if it costs everything.” – Bob Goff. Jesus came not only to speak of love, show us love and act lovingly, but to lay down his life and give everything, for all of humanity.

LOVE DOES – Love Invites

December 9, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture: Luke 2:1-20 Theme:  Love always invites another person to experience that which is most worthy and soul-satisfying.

LOVE DOES – Introduction

November 25th, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture: Luke 1:26-38  Theme:  At Christmas (and from the beginning), God did not simply think about or plan to restore all things, he did it. In expected and unexpected ways God shows us in the incarnation what love looks like in action; and that action shows us about how much our God loves us.

WE ARE TRUE COMMUNITY

September 23rd, 2018 | Pastor Matt Myers

Scripture: Genesis 2:7-9, John 13, Acts 2  | Theme: This week we take a look at our second DNA statement: We are True Community… we desire everyone known and needed, resisting the pull of mere attending. From the outset of the Bible, humanity hears an invitation to create life-giving communities with God. The question is, have we settled for merely attending when God actually invites us to be culture makers. In reality, it seems we are an integral part of the plan.

WE ARE GOSPEL-CENTRED

September 16th, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture: Matthew 14:22-33 | Theme: This week we launch into the first of our ten DNA Statements. We begin with: We are Gospel-centred … we cling to Jesus and every word of God’s story, daily learning to unchoose alternatives. When Jesus came, he came as the one who heals and forgives, but also as the one who controls nature and humbles demons; it is because of the totality of who Jesus is, that we cling to him.

DON’T STOP NOW: DON’T STOP SHORT

September 2nd, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture: Hebrews 11:32-40 | Theme: God regularly beckons us to keep moving forward in faith. A faith that sustains us, however, is one that trusts in who God is, not one that trusts in our agenda for God.  A faith that sustains us through the struggles, is one that knows that God is preparing something better for us. So don’t stop now!
