Transfiguration of Our Lord

Reason is a beautiful thing. It can help us make sense of the world and lay some order on the various events and circumstances of our lives. But as Peter discovers on a hike up a mountain with Jesus one day, reason has its limits. And even its dangers. Today we peek in on those mysterious happenings on that mountain in Mark’s story of the Transfiguration. 

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

Fifth Sunday After Epiphany

Forgetfulness is a common human problem. More so for some than for others. And for a few it can be downright crippling. But for all of us it can be particularly serious when it comes to our faith lives. Which means we have more in common with the Israelites in Isaiah’s congregation than we might realize. So maybe we all need a good dose of the prophet’s remedy today. Alongside the healing hand of Jesus.

Fourth Sunday After Epiphany

Authority is a hot topic in society and church these days. Who speaks for Jesus on issues of morality, politics and justice remains a thorny question. But at least we can all agree that Jesus is our final authority. But why? What is it about Jesus that moves us to stake our life on him? Today we explore a question that most of us probably didn’t think was a question.

Third Sunday After Epiphany

What would cause a fisherman to drop his nets, leave his boat, change his profession, all on a moment’s notice? What would cause you to change the way you live and take up new habits and practices in the blink of an eye? Those might sound like far-fetched questions. But our gospel today takes them very seriously. And thinks we should too. Join us to explore perhaps the most astounding call story in the Bible.

Second Sunday After Epiphany

Knowledge is a wonderful thing. Knowledge of God is even more wonderful still. “Make me to know your ways, O Lord” pleads Psalm 25. But maybe the key to Christian living lies less in knowing and more in being known. Which can have far wider implications than we might realize at first. Today we reflect on the power of being known.

Baptism of Our Lord

Is there a fonder topic for a Lutheran preacher to preach on than baptism? Probably not. Unless they’re preaching in this year of Mark. And so we see a different side of this precious sacrament in our readings today. One that, at first blush, might cause us to swallow hard. But ultimately to breathe easy.

Twelfth Night Soup ‘n’ Sing

Hey everyone, you’re all welcome to join us to celebrate the Twelfth Night of Christmas and the eve of the Day of Epiphany with an evening of Soup and Sing tonight. We will gather at 6 PM at the church for a dinner of soup and bread followed by Holden Evening Prayer with a short reflection on the theme of Epiphany. Please feel free to bring any leftover Christmas baking to share for dessert.

This event will not be live-streamed, so if you’re able, come join us in-person!

Favourite Carols by Request! – The First Sunday of Christmas

It’s almost a New Year, but still Christmas. So we worship with favourite carols by request this Sunday. And given that January 1 is the festival of the Name of Jesus, we will reflect on some of the names of Jesus announced by the angel to the shepherds the night of his birth. Each of which present us with a different perspective on the meaning of his incarnation among us. 

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

Christmas Day

Merry Christmas everyone!

What laid in a manger last night echoes throughout the universe this morning: the light of life, eternal and abundant. Light that enlightens everyone. Light that no darkness can overcome. Light that shines through the fragile flesh of One full of grace and truth. And we are born again! 

Our service today will be at 11am both in-person and live-streamed on our YouTube channel.

The bulletin can be found here at a later time.
