  • Taking Christ Out Of Christmas

    Contributed by Denn Guptill on Dec 1, 2023
     | 1,026 views

    If Christmas has become a "cultural" holiday, This message looks at what happens when we try and take out all of the religious elements.

    Have you noticed that every year, people seem more intent on secularizing Christmas? They wish you a “Happy Holiday” or “Seasons Greetings” and then have presentations at school that make no mention of the Manger or the Wise Men, let alone the Christ Child. Now, I may be a little overly sensitive, ...read more

    Contributed by Denn Guptill on Nov 3, 2023
     | 683 views

    We are told that we are given everything we need to lead a godly life, but what does that mean?

    Therefore 2 Peter 1 When I was at university, one of the courses I had to take was homiletics, which is simply defined as the art of preaching or writing sermons. The goal of the class was to teach us to do both things: how to write sermons and how to preach sermons. My professor was a former ...read more

     | 554 views

    As we continue our therefore series, we take a look at Hebrews 12, and how we are the run our race.

    Part of my misspent youth was spent hanging around Racehorses and those who bet on horse races. I’ve mentioned before that my sister and I both had horses when we were teenagers, and when we lived in Hammond River, just outside of Saint John, New Brunswick, we boarded them at a farm that provided ...read more

  • Therefore: Do Good Series

     | 879 views

    This is the first in the series where we look at the old adage, whenever you see a Therefore, you need to go back and see what it's there for.

    It’s one of those things that preachers say. It is kind of like, “After the but comes the truth,” or “I’m almost finished.” I’m pretty sure if you’ve been in church for any length of time that you’ve heard this particular phrase, perhaps you’ve even said it yourself from time to time, and it is ...read more

  • The Reality Of Joy

    Contributed by Denn Guptill on May 28, 2023
     | 1,112 views

    What is Biblical Joy? Throughout the New Testament, we are encouraged to be joyful and to rejoice. But does that mean that we always have to be happy?

    The question that Paul seems to be trying to answer for most of this passage of scripture is, how Jewish do you have to be to be a Christian? It was the question of whether or not Christians had to follow all of the Jewish regulations and guidelines was an ongoing debate throughout the New ...read more

  • The Unity Of Love

    Contributed by Denn Guptill on May 13, 2023
     | 1,009 views

    Paul's desire was that the Church would be unified, but what does that look like? We live in a time when the church seems fragmented and divided, and that is affecting who we reach and don't reach people.

    The Unity of Love If nothing else, you need to love the sixties and seventies for their awesome sense of style. The band was “The Brotherhood of Man,” the year was 1970, and the message of the song was spelled out in its title “United we stand, divided we fall.” Interesting tidbit about the ...read more

     | 1,583 views

    Christ's followers are called citizens of heaven, and this message looks at what that means.

    Live as Citizens of Heaven Can you remember the last time you received a letter? A letter, not an email but a letter? And not a letter from the CRA or your bank, but a personal letter. A letter from a friend, delivered in an envelope, with a stamp by Canada Post? Seriously, have you ever ...read more

  • Out Of The Overflow

     | 891 views

    Too often, preachers are guilty of preaching that the overflow is always financial. Here we take a look at how there can be other overflow as well

    We don’t know a lot about them as a church. We don’t know how they worshipped; we don’t know what songs they sang, which translation of the bible they preferred, and we don’t know what the preacher was like. What we do know is how they gave. This is week one of our Stewardship Emphasis Month at ...read more

    When Simeon looked into the face of Jesus he saw the hope of the World

    We all know the words; we’ve heard them over and over again. If you close your eyes, you can almost picture the. The Old Testament words that are read each year during Advent. The words of Isaiah, Micah and David which relate to the coming Messiah. They are repeated in sermons and songs and printed ...read more

     | 1,615 views

    We often think of the Christmas story being the whole story, or the beginning of the Jesus story that ends with his resurrection, but in reality it goes much further than that

    “I love it when a plan comes together.” Those of you who are older than dirt probably remember this phrase being used by Hannibal Smith in the A-Team. It was first used in the pilot of the show on January 23, 1983. That will be forty years ago in two months. Forty years before that Canada was in ...read more

It is a retelling of the Gospel from Simon ...read more

    Worshipping God, privately and publically, draws us closer to Him and strengthens our relationship with Him

    This ladies and gentlemen is a picture of a paradoxical frog. It is native to the eastern parts of South America. And what makes it a paradox is the fact that while a full-grown specimen is about 7.5 cm in length, when it’s a tadpole it can reach up to 25 cm in length. It literally is four times ...read more

    “Houston, we have a problem!” April 13th, 1970, and the Odyssey’s Commander Jim Lovell uttered words that would go down in History.

    If you were to visit the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. you could visit an exhibit called The Hall of Human Origins, and you could spend the better part of a day visiting the various displays that make up the exhibit. Now if DC isn’t on your vacation list for this year, you could ...read more
