It’s Bell “Let’s Talk” day and so mental health is in focus. This isn’t about one day but bringing focus to this important issue in our society. So, if you’re struggling, let’s talk!
Next Outreach Workshop
Next Sunday, February 7th, we’ll be having our next outreach workshop starting at 12:30, so shortly after the service. For 45 minutes we’ll be looking at practical ways that you can strengthen and gain confidence in your ability to share your faith. There’ll be useful teaching to help you grow in comfort in this important part of discipleship.
I’m excited to see what comes from this as well look to let the light of the gospel shine more strongly through our lives.

Thought for the day: God always treats us with mercy.
Tuesday I shared some thoughts on how God seeks a relationship with us and I hope that was an encouragement. During it I shared a verse from Peter’s first letter to the early church. In that letter Peter goes on to write: “All honor to God, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; for it is his boundless mercy that has given us the privilege of being born again so that we are now members of God’s own family”. In his mercy….did you catch that? The more I understand grace the more it amazes me. It’s completely undeserved and unmerited, yes, and its based on the spirit of mercy that is part of God’s character.
This truth should give us hope even when we blow it (and you will at some point in 2021 if you haven’t already, I know I have!), when we fail, God doesn’t get mad at us. He always acts with mercy toward us. Why? As a follower of Jesus, you’re covered in his blood and salvation. That’s the truth and hope we have in the cross, that his mercy extends to us even though we deserve his wrath. No matter what’s in store for you, you can rest completely in that truth.
In His grip,
