SERMON – APRIL 28, 2019 – THE LORD EMPOWERS HIS PEOPLE

1 And the angel who talked with me came again and woke me, like a man who is awakened out of his sleep. 2 And he said to me, “What do you see?” I said, “I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold, with a bowl on the top of it, and seven lamps on it, with seven lips on each of the lamps that are on the top of it. 3 And there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.” 4 And I said to the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?” 5 Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord.” 6 Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts. 7 Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain. And he shall bring forward the top stone amid shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!’”

8 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also complete it. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you. 10 For whoever has despised the day of small things shall rejoice, and shall see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.

“These seven are the eyes of the Lord, which range through the whole earth.” 11 Then I said to him, “What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?” 12 And a second time I answered and said to him, “What are these two branches of the olive trees, which are beside the two golden pipes from which the golden oil is poured out?” 13 He said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord.” 14 Then he said, “These are the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole earth.” (Zechariah 4:1-14, ESV)

SUMMER VBS – JULY 5-6, 2019

We will be collaborating with two other churches this year (Broken Bread and New Hope Fellowship: Uptown) to organize a summer VBS for our children.  The theme is called: “The Incredible Race”.  Please save these dates: July 5-6 🙂

Attached is the registration form as well as details regarding the 2-day program. Although the event isn’t taking place till July, getting your registration forms in as early as possible will help us to better plan and organize the program as we get a good sense of the number of children who will be for sure attending.  *Don’t forget to email Cynthia a picture of your child when you register and indicate their favourite colour, food, and activity!

Invite your friends!!! This is a great way to share the gospel with those who have not yet heard or do not know Jesus.

Please note that the youngest children who are able to attend are those going into JK this September.  For those entering JK/SK this September, they are also only invited to participate on the Saturday.  Please read the attached info/registration form for details.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!——-If you would like to volunteer for this event and are available either one or both of these days, please contact Cynthia at cynthia.cm.wong@gmail.com or speak with her directly at church.  We are looking to gather about 10 volunteers from each church.

Let us be a blessing to one another as we come together and serve with other churches….as we are ONE body, ONE family, proclaiming the same ONE Saviour, Jesus Christ.

SERMON – APRIL 7, 2019 – FAITH THROUGH THE STORM

And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” (Matthew 8:26-27, ESV)
