Christ the King Sunday

Today we celebrate Christ the King. We have a special guest with us this week. Carolyn Klaassen is an Indigenous theologian and leader here in the BC Synod. She grew up Lutheran, and in the recent years has began to discover her Ojibway roots. Carolyn will share her story with us. She will also join in leading worship, introducing traditional Indigenous elements to our liturgy.

All Saints Sunday

What is a saint? “Saint” is just another name for a baptized child of God. If you’ve been baptized, you’re a saint! You don’t have to do anything to earn the name or prove you deserve it. So today we give thanks for God’s promise in baptism that makes us saints, and for all those saints we have known and loved and who now rest in God’s loving an eternal care. And we hear a story about what that eternal and loving care means.

Reformation Sunday

Forgetfulness is something most of us try hard to avoid. But when is being forgetful the best news we could ever hear? Join us on this Reformation Sunday as we celebrate the good news Martin Luther rediscovered for the church of Jesus Christ…and a few of our youth affirming their baptisms to boot!

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Life’s a journey. We’ve all heard that. And Jesus travels with us all along. But can we hear him? Maybe thats a matter of learning to recognize his voice. Today we hear our youth speak about their journey with Jesus this past summer and hear a sermon from our retiring bishop Greg Mohr that can help us with that learning.

Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Praise Appeal Sunday)

Thanksgiving Sunday

It’s often been said that giving thanks is a good antidote to worry. I think Jesus would agree. In fact, today he speaks to us about finding freedom from worry and anxiety. But why does Jesus want us to be free from worry? Join us to worship and explore that intriguing question on this Thanksgiving Sunday.

Fifth Sunday in Season of Creation

When we think about champions in the fight against climate change we usually think first of scientists and activists. We probably don’t think often of poets. Maybe then, on this Sunday that we celebrate the feast of St. Francis of Assissi, who wrote one of the most famous hymns to creation, we need to think twice about the power of poetry. Join us in that reflection on Fifth and final Sunday in the Season of Creation.

Fourth Sunday in Season of Creation

“Thoughts and prayers” have taken a bad rap in recent days. Especially when it comes to a problem as imposing as climate change, prayer hardly feels like an effective response. On second thought…join us on this Fourth Sunday in the Season of Creation to explore prayer as a weapon in the fight for our climate.

Third Sunday in Season of Creation

What the heck is an “oikos”? And what does it have to do with saving the earth? Or with Jesus and his clueless band of disciples? So many questions. Join us as we seek some answers and go deeper into the Season of Creation.
