We live in a time where good news is rare. The timeless gospel message is good news. Christians sometimes forget how good the good news really is. How do we best share this good news in an age of spiritual barrenness? We’ll investigate an Old Testament story to learn pointers on how to extend a kind of love that “stoops.”
2 Samuel 9:1-13 [outline]
The Centurion was generally hated by the Jewish people. He was a professional soldier who is said to love the God of Israel and the Jewish people. He built a synagogue in Capernaum with his own resources because of that love. The leaders of the Jewish people overcame their prejudice because of his faith in the God of Israel.
Luke 7:1-10 // [outline]
Many people approach God for many different reasons, but of all these people, who will God receive? David, in Psalm 15, provides an answer to that ever important question. He calls people to walk the righteous path and experience the blessings of living in God's presence.
God is bringing Muslim immigrants to Canada in record numbers. Most of them have never had an opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus. We, as the church, have the amazing opportunity and calling to share with them the gospel that we so richly enjoy. The question though is “Are you ready…to give an answer for what you believe and why?”
Romans 10:1-21 // [outline]
God is at work! In the midst of social upheaval, more Muslims have come to Christ in our generation than in the previous 1,000 years. Ten million people are displaced within Syria, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon. And the church has mobilized to serve their new neighbours. In this message, guest speaker, Joseph Najem, will share how “Eyes on Syria” gives us a view to this new frontier.

In a world of fake news, alternate facts and bitter partisanship, you may ask: “Is there anyone we can trust?” If you are confused, discouraged or fearful, and wondering where to turn; whom to trust; what to build your life upon; then Psalm 23 is the perfect prescription for your dilemma.
