Sermon for May 12th, 2013: Bless: Love God, Love People, Do Something About It Part 2
What would it be like if Bowmanville had one church with many expressions? The reality is that we already do. We must unite the churches of the city around a common goal rather than around a cooperative project that would require each congregation to abandon its own ministries to participate in something external. Having one goal allows us to work in unity.
Sermon for May 5th, 2013: Bless: Love God, Love People, Do Something About It
If the lives of church members do not overflow with justice and righteousness we might ask, “Is God pleased with our Sunday morning worship?” True worship is not about style but the extent to which the worshiper’s life is transformed by being in the presence of a holy God.

Sermon for March 31th, 2013: The Story: Alive

Sermon for March 24th, 2013: The Story: When Love Sees You
Do we understand how much we needed Jesus to die on the cross for us? In a sense we stood with the crowd and shouted “Crucify Him” and yet we also fall to our knees in gratitude for what he did for us.
Sermon for March 17th, 2013: The Story: How Love Wins
The thief on the cross didn’t make any excuses for his behaviour. He recognized who Jesus was and what he was doing on the cross. Do we recognize that our sin put him there?
Sermon for March 10th, 2013: Gathering of God's People
Our understanding of the church comes from our understanding of Jesus. Sometimes we get ideas about what church should be like that are cultural rather than biblical. What is the church for? Why do we gather and what does church really look like. Your idea of church might actually be keeping you from growing in your faith. Join us as we explore what the church is and why Jesus wanted us to gather together.
