Pastor Gideon Tsang challenges us to a live out our true identity by "consenting" to the love of God. Instead of endless striving, we are invited to embrace the good news that God is completing a good work within us. Our consent draws us towards a willingness to let God do His work in His way.
Pastor Chris begins a new series that we'll revisit throughout the year; engaging with scripture and the unique insight of writer & theologian C.S. Lewis.

Pastor Josh Hilburn invited us to consider our lives as united with that of Jesus, and to ask ourselves where we have sought meaning elsewhere.

Pastor Chris brought us his message this week from Peru, introducing us to a community that has seen death and disease due to contaminated water, and the blessed transformation that has come from our opportunity to participate in God's work to provide a clean water source and a renewal of hope.

Pastor Chris first asked the children of our community who should receive the best gifts on Christmas, and then called us each to consider why and how we give gifts in this beautiful season. As a people who have received God's greatest gift, how will we respond in great thoughtfulness and love to those in our own lives, while worshipfully extending our greatest gifts to Jesus?
