As I started last week, I’d like to take some space in my regular update to keep you abreast of what the leadership team is doing, Patrick, Dan, Jacob and I have been sharing on Sundays lately some of the things that we’ve been discussing and working on the past several months. When the church and society was shut down in March we didn’t! Our meetings shifted to a weekly Zoom call on Monday mornings followed by a time of prayer together on Tuesday mornings. This has continued uninterrupted since then. We have been looking at some of the things that have come out of our 100 Days of Prayer and have met with Gord Martin from Vision Ministries two times since. The small groups we enjoyed the past two months are the result of some of this and there are other things coming in the areas of prayer, our Sunday morning experience and outreach in the weeks to come. I’m looking forward to sharing this with you!
Join us on Sunday!
Thank you to all who came out on Sunday and for your co-operation with our protocols. It’s also been great to have our Kid’s Church open again too. Thanks to Jennifer for all her work to make that happen.
For those who are coming this Sunday, as a reminder, please remember to wear your mask when you enter and leave and especially when singing. As well, do remember to maintain your physical distancing when socializing outside afterwards.
I will be finishing off our series ‘Joy in the Storm’ and our study of Philippians. I’ll be circling back to look at chapter 4 verses 8-9 and the idea of finding joy in doubtful things.
“See” you on Sunday!
Thought for the day: Trust God!
I’ve been speaking to a number of people who are struggling with trusting God lately. With everything going on, with the world changing, things have been turned upside down. So, this is a fair question,
How, then, do we trust God? Solomon, one of the wisest men to ever walk the earth told us to do it like this: “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.” (Prov.3:5-6) Notice what he doesn’t say here? He doesn’t say it’ll be easy, we’ll get our own way or even that we’ll have all our questions answered but rather IF we trust him, take the leap of faith, He’ll be with us every step of the way. As the saying goes, He never promised us a smooth flight, just a safe landing.
God will catch us when we fall, and He’ll help us soar on wings like eagles (Isaiah 40:31) when we take the leap of faith. It may not look in the end the way you envision, hope for or even need, but he will. So, the question then is: are you ready to leap into your Heavenly Father’s outstretched arms? He’s waiting and He WILL catch you. Trust God.
In His grip,
