Praise the Lord for the good old summertime.  Good memories are made in moments.  It's not all of last year that we remember but it's the moments in last year that were special.  It's not all of our childhood that we can recall but it's those times when mom or dad gave us a great memory.  Children don't need big things to remember great moments but it's in those tiny moments that you made them feel special.  You may want to be a great person but great people have the ability to make others around them feel encouraged and wonderful.  Have a great day today by making someone else feel special.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing, 'After The Event Is Over.'  What do you do when the event you planned to make you happy is over and it has left you empty?  Sunday evening weather permitting we'll be on the Sydney Boardwalkfor an outdoor outreach service.  Come out and bring a friend. 
Next Sunday is Family Fun Sunday with a Bikers Blessing on our Church Property on Grand Lake Rd.  It's located 1km past the Mayflower Mall on the way to CBU.  You don't want to miss the food, fun, and fellowship.  Come out and bring 2 friends.          
Continue to pray for those in need, looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Well, it's a beautiful summer day, just the kind of day that we dreamed about in those ice cold days of January.  It's funny how we arrive in what we dreamed for but it's now somehow warmer than we expected.  This is not to say that we are now dreaming about a cold day in January but the farmers are asking for us to pray for rain.  It seems like our human nature is never satisfied in the day we're in and yet the Bible tells us that this is the day that the Lord has made.  So look around and I know it's warm but be thankful, rejoice in this day for winter will be back soon enough.
This Sunday morning I will be sharing a word about, 'It All Started At The Wedding.'  It happens to be for Alice and I that it's our anniversary this Sunday and it all started at the wedding.  Jesus also began His public ministry at a wedding.  Why was He born in a stable and died on a cross and why did He start His ministry at a wedding?   There is no evening service this Sunday.

Blessings that come from above are directly connected to the words that we speak below.  Proverbs 18:21 Death and Life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat it`s fruit.  Most of us know enough of the Bible to know this truth about our words but knowing and applying or hearing and doing can be 2 different things.  When you have a choice whether to speak death or life, speak life. 
Tomorrow Friday, there is a work day at the Church land on Grand Lake Road from 9 till noon.  We can use lots of help so if you can make it out it would be great.
This Sunday in the morning I`ll be sharing, Oneness Brings Wholeness.  We can strive to be perfect and never get there or we can strive to become one and find wholeness.  Sunday evening we are on the North Sydney Boardwalkas we join with Grace Fellowship to have a special outdoor outreach community service.
On Monday and Tuesday evening there will be special Catch the Fire  services at the Highland  Arts Theater ( St Andrews church) on  Bentick St. In Sydney at 6:30

Praise the Lord for wisdom from above.  Last night with the Board of the church I said that the presentation of the Gospel is meant to bring a desire for elevation in our spirit.  We are to look up and from elevation we will receive a revelation in our spirit.  From revelation we stir in our faith and see a manifestation.  From manifestation we are then empowered to walk in transformation.  Presentation, elevation, revelation, manifestation, and transformation.  I hope you don't need an explanation.  The point is we want to see others transformed but it all begins with us presenting a Gospel that gives them the desire to look up.  Jesus said it this way in Matthew 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."  A Gospel that can't be lived out before men shouldn't be preached out across the world.  It has to be doable before it will be receive-able.  Let's keep it real and really change the world.
This is, wait for it... wait for it....Family Sunday!!!!  We start @10:15 with good food and great fellowship so don't be late.  Then 5 minutes before the service starts we run a DVD, are you as smart as a Sunday School student?  The worship begins, announcements, offering, my message, 'There's Only One,' and we end with Holy Communion.  On Family Sunday there is no evening service. 
Continue to pray for all those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you on Family Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Praise the Lord for He is really good.  There is something for everyone to do and a place for everyone to fill in the wonderful Family of God.  The trouble is in the natural we often see sameness as oneness and so we try to conform others to our will.  The truth is the Spiritual church in not a natural place and until we see in the Spirit we will miss the vital part that each person plays to make us together the Holy place where God dwells.  Ephesians 2:19-22  "Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit."  You are special all by yourself and you have a special place in the Family of God that makes us together more complete.  I pray that you have a special day today in the Lord.
This Sunday morning we will have with us Rob and Fran Parker the founders and directors for the National House of Prayer in Ottawa.  Each year on the last Sunday in June we have received a toonie offering for this ministry so it's great that they can be with us to relate the concerns and victories in our nation this Sunday morning.  Sunday evening Pastor Mark will be imparting a word to impact your life.
Today Alice and I are on our way to the Abundant Life Church in Truro.  They have invited me to speak the word of the Lord with them this evening.  They have been praying and seeking direction for their future so pray for me.  Sunday morning I've been invited to speak at the Moncton Victory Church.  This is a church in the heart of Moncton with a heart to reach the world.
Next Sunday, July 6th is Family Sunday and as TD Jakes says..... get ready, get ready, get ready!!  Family Sunday is one of those God ideas that God Himself blesses everyone that takes part.
