The Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Another Sunday full of images of sheep and shepherds! Not that anyone’s complaining. But as our first reading today notes, there are shepherds, and then there are Shepherds. Or more accurately, there is The Shepherd. The one who gives us rest, leads us on right pathways, and whose compassion is in exhaustible. We welcome today pastor and preacher Tim LeDrew, a wonderful and well respected shepherd of our synod.

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.

The Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – Picnic Under the Trees

Today’s worship service will be taking place outdoors, therefore the service will not be live-streamed. Sorry if this causes any inconvenience.

Politics and religion. Two subjects that don’t mix… Right? Well, maybe that depends on what you mean by “politics”. We get a lesson today on this touchy subject from two biblical characters for whom the tension we feel between politics and religion was never an issue. And a lesson too on discipleship.

Vacation Bible School 2024

Together with our partners at St. Laurence Anglican Church we are again offering Vacation Bible School this summer mornings from August 12 – 16. Our program is called “Heroes Hotline”.

Kids (called Heroes) will explore stories of Bible heroes from the Old and New Testament, discovering how we too can answer God’s call to be everyday heroes by working for peace, building each other up, and sharing God’s love with others and with the world. Through music, drama and storytelling, games, science, arts and crafts, and even snacks, we’ll learn how Heroes are called to Follow Jesus, Help Others, Work Together, Listen to God, and Show Grace!

We welcome all kids from age 4 to 11. Please register early here, or by clicking the button below:

Register Here!

And if you are interested in volunteering for the week please don’t hesitate to contact the church office.

Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today we enjoy a guest sermon from Rev. Matthew Senf, Assistant to Bishop Kathy for Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations. He preaches about homecomings. Maybe over the summer you will experience a homecoming in the form of a family reunion or a visit from seldom seen relative. I certainly hope yours goes better than the one we read about in the gospel. Then again, maybe sometimes even conflicted homecomings can bear good news.

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.

Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Faith looms large in our gospel today. The faith of an anxious father and that of a desperately ill woman. So much so that we can miss the most obvious thing about this story. That Jesus cares for bodies. Real human flesh and its health and well-being. What does it say about us that we need to be reminded of that?

Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time

As our Synod convention comes to a close this Sunday morning, our sermon today comes from Bishop Larry Kochendorfer of the Synod of Alberta and the Territories. We are grateful for the work of our wider church and for those who dedicate their time and energy to its ministry. Sometimes church life can feel like a storm on the sea. But our Lord is with us through every challenge. So even more than the joy of our Synod community, we celebrate the Lord whose Spirit binds us together and makes us one.

Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Another Sunday. Another parable from Jesus about a crazy farmer. But this Sunday it’s that seed that catches our attention. That seed that produces a beautiful and bountiful harvest without any human assistance. It might defy logic or stretch credulity. But maybe it’s also the source of the deepest hope we could know.

Sip with the Spirit

Join us on Wednesday, June 19 at Tinhouse Brewing in Port Coquitlam for an evening of fellowship and faith conversation . We’ll gather around 7 pm, grab a beverage (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) and chat. This is not a Bible study, but an opportunity to explore faith topics and questions and their connection to contemporary life.

Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Family and Church. Two of the most precious and beautiful gifts we have in our life. And gifts that help to form our identity and nurture our spirits. So why is Jesus messing with both of them in our gospel today? And what is it about these gifts that he’s so eager to warn us about? We join Jesus today as he goes home for some family time. Only to find himself in more than one family fight.

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.

Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sabbath is one of the most ancient and foundational faith practices of both Christians and Jews. And it has resonance beyond religious community, impacting even modern work culture. But how deeply do we ever think about Sabbath? What its for and how its practiced? Our readings today push us to ask those questions and explore their implications for daily life.
