2016 is here and the race is on.  What race you ask?  Well it's the race we're running as we keep the faith and press towards the good things that are set before us.  Not only are we to keep holding onto the good things we have but we are to avoid carrying any of the bad things that happen to us.  Hebrews 12:1 "Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us."  This new year let's not carry any grudges, let's lay aside the need to get revenge, and let's walk in the freedom of us having a renewed mind.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'The Voice of Perfection Is Deception.'  When we feel that we need a certain thing and then life will be perfect we have been deceived.  What we should be seeking is balance and acting mature in less than perfect circumstances.  Invite a friend to come with you this Sunday to hear a life changing message.
Our live streaming is going very well and our podcast have had over 1000 download in the last 6 months.  God is good and God be praised.
Continue to pray for those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Happy New Year, it's like another chance to get it right.  We used different words last year to bring us into different places and may we say the right words in all the days of this yet to be spoken New Year that will bring us closer into the will of our Heavenly Father.  A man in our church said that he used to think about different resolutions and then one year he said that his resolution was to get closer to Jesus and he said it's been working ever since.  I believe that his resolution is a revelation that leads us to having a great transformation and a blessed New Year.  Ephesians 4:21-24 "if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness."  May throughout this New Year the truth in your heart about Jesus be found in the fruit of your lips.
This is Family Sunday and a great way to start the New Year.  We need lots of food as we prepare our church to welcome lots of visitors.  We start @10:15 and we ask everyone not to go in the music room early to get something to eat or drink as others may think the breakfast has started.  I'll be sharing on, 'Newness.'  New is not something that is new as everyday is new but how do we embrace new with a clear understanding of where we've been?  We will be serving Communion and there is no evening service.
Continue to pray for those in need.  Lots of love, looking forward to seeing you soon, Pastor Kevin and Alice

Christmas 2015 has arrived and the birth of Jesus the Christ is being celebrated around the world.  Last Sunday the children did an outstanding presentation and we had a great day yesterday at Loaves and Fishes singing the songs of the season.  One man said to me, 'Thank you, you put a smile on my face and it now feels like Christmas.'  I hope that you and your family have been having a good Christmas day so far.  In saying that we should also remember to pray for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one, those in the hospital, or those that are lonely like some of our foreign students who are miles and miles away from home.  May we all have great hope for the New Year to see miracles, signs, and wonders and may many of our friends come to know Jesus as their Savior and Lord.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'Keeping Connected.'  How do we stay close to God while living in a world that's not?  We will also have a baby dedication for Chris and Violet Campbell who are home with their new baby.  In the evening, people will be testifying about what they learned in 2015 and what they hope to see in 2016.  Next Sunday is a brand New Year and our first Family Sunday for 2016.  Bring food and invite a friend and watch what the Lord will do for you.
Continue to pray for those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of Love, Pastor Kevin and Alice.
