Summer is here

Summer is here and the time for people to travel and visit has come. We hope that everyone is able to enjoy the summer and wherever you may go that you continue to gather with God’s people in worship. Our regular worship will continue Sunday mornings at 10:30 and there will also be a modified children’s program for the younger ones. The regular activities of the church take a break for the summer but come September everything will begin again.

So if you are traveling through Grande Prairie on a Sunday do drop in and worship with us.

Lenten Journey

Join us each Sunday as we journey through the Season of Lent leading up Easter itself. Lent is a time of reflection, repentance and renewal. Free to drop in to our services at 10:30 am each Sunday.

The Significance of the Lord’s Supper

The Significance of the Lord’s Supper

 

Text: 1 Corinthians 11

 

Today is Communion Sunday. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is something that we celebrate every month of the year. We see the importance of coming together as a community of faith to celebrate the Sacrament. However too often in this day and age we forget the real significance of the Lord’s Supper. So in order to attempt to overcome this would like to consider with you the significance of the Lord’s Supper on the communion Sunday. I intend to look at the significance from 4 areas: as a memorial observance, a symbolic observance, a continuing observance and a church observance. Then I hope to tie it altogether as we look at the Observance of the Lord’s Supper.

 

My prayer is that through the sermon that the Lord will give us a better understanding of the communion service and lead us into a more meaningful participation.

Confessions at Lent

Confessions at Lent

 

Text: Psalm 51:3

 

“I acknowledge my transgression; and my sin is ever before me.”

 

We need always to repent. Lest we should forget that church in her wisdom has set aside the season of Lent which began with Ash Wednesday this past Wednesday and continues through to Psalm Sunday. It is a time that reminds us to confess our sins “with a humble, lowly, penitent and obedient heart; to the end that we may obtain forgiveness of the same by His infinite goodness and mercy.”  Psalm 61 is a commentary upon David’s admission of guilt when Nathan confronted him. “You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword and have taken his wife to be your wife.”  Many have regarded this psalm as a model confession. From it we learn that our Lenten confession must be thorough, humble and hopeful.

Prayer

Prayer: Luke 11:1-13

By Erica Farrell

I had been teaching my young son, Matthew, the Lord’s Prayer. For several evenings at bedtime, he would repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, he decided to go solo. I listened with pride as he carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer: “Lead us not into temptation,” he prayed, “but deliver us some E-mail. Amen.” Ah a sign of the times!

There are plenty of amusing stories about children and prayer. Here’s a couple more:
