Matthew - Upside Down Kingdom - Matthew 5:27-32: The Bible is the most relevant text ever written. It speaks directly to a myriad of issues: human emotion, forgiveness, the nature of reality, and even sexuality. This week, Jesus is going to speak to the issue of sexual desire, healthy articulation of it, and the cohesiveness of covenant commitment.…
 
Matthew - Upside Down Kingdom - Matthew 5:21-26: What makes you angry? We all have pet peeves, frustrations, real pains and a longing for justice that can produce the emotion of anger in our lives. Sometimes the anger is justified, healthy and even holy. And other times it is dark and dangerous. As we travel through the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus i…
 
Matthew - Upside Down Kingdom - Matthew 5:17-20: It is 2023. A brand New Year! Many of us have pondered the changes we want to make. Have you ever thought about why we make New Year's resolutions? Why do we have goals? The truth is we are all looking to have a meaningful life. The challenge comes in defining what a meaningful life is. How do we def…
 
Advent - Matthew 2:13-23: As we turn our backs on 2022 and look ahead to a New Year, there are certain principles found in the Bible to help us on our way. We’ll look at the new year that faced Mary and Joseph, after the visit of the Wisemen, and soon find out that life didn’t become any easier for them with the arrival of Jesus. One would think it…
 
Advent - John 1:1-18: This Sunday is Christmas Day! For many the day will be filled with gifts and food, family and friends. But, no matter where or how you are celebrating, we encourage you to take time to pause and join us online for a simple service of carols and reflection. As we gather around God’s Word we will marvel at the mystery of Jesus; …
 
Advent - Luke 2:8-20: Why does Christmas persist? Is it a clever marketing scheme used to prop up consumerism? Is it a rock solid tradition that helps keep society intact? Or is it something deeper. This Saturday, we are going to pause and reflect on the glory and beauty of Jesus Christ and what Christmas is truly about. I’d also encourage us to pa…
 
Advent - Matthew 2:1-12: Are you a Star Gazer? When you think about it, from early childhood we've been taught to 'wish upon a star,' to 'count our lucky stars' and recitd 'twinkle, twinkle, little star!' What is it about the human experience that finds our heads and hearts in the heavenlies seeking some sign of luck or good fortune we hope is comi…
 
Advent - Matthew 1:22-25: Is Christmas comforting or scandalous? For many of us, Christmas represents the most predictable time of year—family, tradition, maybe even a fireplace. However, the Bible presents Christmas as a moment that tears a hole in the fabric of reality with the stunning news that now God is with us. This week we are going to look…
 
Advent - Matthew 1:18-21: Christmas is shrouded in mystery. The frost in the air, the snow on the trees and the incandescent lights all add to the ambience of mystery. Then you have the presents, wrapped to conceal a great gift. The biblical narrative is also cloaked in mystery. A child born in a manger. A virgin birth. God with skin on. How do we …
 
Advent - Matthew 5:13-16: As the days get shorter and physical darkness increases, Advent invites us to reflect on the darkness of our world in order to increase our longing for God to break in with divine light. In the season of Advent, we enter the story of God in a posture of waiting. We position ourselves with God’s people of old, who waited fo…
 
The Book of Matthew - Matthew 5:1-12: A blessed life. It’s a beautiful concept but hard to define. And yet, Jesus begins His most famous sermon by outlining what life looks like under the blessing of God. As He teaches about the kingdom, Jesus outlines the upside-down nature of reality and how the kingdom of God reveals what it means to be truly bl…
 
The Book of Matthew - Matthew 4:23-25: Pain, suffering and misery. Confusion, alienation, despondency. These words, and dozens more like them, describe moments of human existence. And we all experience some of them. And Jesus Christ came to heal them all. This week, we are looking at the ministry of Jesus - what He did to those who were in pain, ho…
 
The Book of Matthew - Matthew 4:18-22: Have you ever felt the joy of being chosen? It might have been sports team, a love interest, or getting a job you truly desired. When you are chosen there is a burst of energy and joy that erupts in the soul. But being chosen also carries a weight of responsibility. When you are chosen, it means your life is a…
 
The Book of Matthew - Matthew 4:12-17: If you could improve the life of everyone in Calgary, what would you do to make it happen? What do you think the people of our wonderful city would need that would apply across the board? I don't know honestly. I have ideas and maybe a couple of solid theories but I doubt I'd be the one to be the voice on that…
 
The Book of Matthew - Matthew 4:1-11: Security, food, wealth, reputation, honor, family, blessing. These are just a few of the beautiful aspects of life that human beings desire. We love good things. But what happens when our admiration turns into affection and our desire becomes a craving? How does this happen? And what is happening spiritually th…
 
The Book of Matthew - Matthew 3:13-17: Identity formation is perhaps the most profound and challenging experience of human existence. And we all go through it. Coming to understand who you are is taxing and complex. This is what makes the teenage experience so strange, interesting, and confusing. One of the peculiarities of Christian faith is this:…
 
The Book of Matthew - Matthew 3:1-12: On Thanksgiving Sunday, we reflect with grateful hearts on all that God has blessed us with. One of the greatest responses we can make is to live our lives in light of the backdrop of his loving posture towards us and the pathway he lays before us to follow in this grand adventure of life. Matthew 3 will be the…

In this sermon, we will focus on how a clear understanding of Jesus can transform our mundane days into a…

We will welcome Brent Trask and Clint Mix from the Western Canadian District as they help us install our new pastor! Now what is a pastor installation? It is a moment where we pause t…
 
All Things New - Romans 8:1-11: Jesus never promised a boring or predictable life. In fact, Jesus promised life and life to the full. This life is meant to be marked by the living, abiding, and powerful presence of the Holy Spirit. But who is this Holy Spirit? What does it mean to be filled with the Spirit? What changes and what can we expect if we…
 
All Things New - Romans 8:1-11: They say a picture tells a thousand words. The same is true for numbers. Sometimes numbers remind us of celebrities—99, 87, 23. Or they can remind us of tragedies such as 9/11. They can represent concepts and ideas, such as 777 or its opposite, 666. Numbers can also reveal our deepest values, like 50 years of marriag…
 
All Things New - John 12:23-26: Have you ever sat back and wondered what the legacy of your life is? What difference does your life make, who have you influenced, and what really is the point of it all? The question is a dramatic and important one—what is the impact of your life? No one in history has had a more influential life than Jesus Christ. …
 
Psalms for Life - Psalm 139: As we conclude our summer message series, Psalms for Life, we will focus on Psalm 139 and the all knowing (omniscient) ever present (omni-present) nature of God. In this psalm David uses a palate of word pictures that invite us to consider the extent of God’s being. Before a word in on our tongue, God knows it completel…
 
Psalms for Life - Psalm 126: When was the last time you were really happy? Just bursting with joy? It’s a great feeling isn’t it? But as exhilarating and welcome as that feeling is, it is often fleeting. In the scriptures, and particularly the Psalms, we are told of a joy that is rooted, not in our circumstances, but in God’s love and care for us. …
 
Psalms for Life - Psalm 13: Whatever your news service of choice is, tracking local, national and global events – and experiencing these events as well – has become overwhelming. Mental, emotional, physical, political trouble is hitting us on all fronts. Like no other time in our history have we been able to identify with the psalmist who said, “lo…
 
Psalms for Life - Psalm 103: Did you realize that when you read through the Psalms, you're reading through Jesus' prayer book? He would have memorized this book and his prayers, teachings and conversations are saturated with the Psalms. We're going to try something a little bit different in our time together on the weekend, I'm treating it as a pra…
 
Psalms for Life - Psalm 46: This weekend we’re going to be looking at a Psalm that has impacted people throughout generations. I think of Martin Luther, leader of the reformation. As he was being challenged by the Roman Emperor and threatened with imprisonment & death and standing up almost alone in the battle … discouraged, and at times depressed …
 
Psalms for Life - Psalm 22: While dying on the cross, Jesus prayed, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me” (Matthew 27:46), a quotation from Psalm 22:1. This Psalm of lament provides a pattern for how we can pray when life is hard. We can talk to God about: 1) the problems and challenges we’re facing, 2) the feelings that accompany those hardsh…
 
Psalms for Life - Psalm 1: Just as Country Western music expresses the pleasure and pain of the human experience, the book of Psalms presents us with a worship playlist written for God’s people in the Old Testament reminding them of His love for them and his repeated call to return home to Him. Psalm One will be our focus this weekend in learning t…
 
Psalms for Life - Psalm 150: As we look at the last Psalm in the Psalter, we will discover a powerful lesson that will reframe your life and perspective. Are you struggling with finding hope, joy, and peace in this season? Discover the powerful truth that is found in three prepositions.द्वारा Rev Dr Bryce Ashlin-Mayo - Dean of Theology @ Ambrose University
 
Psalms for Life - Psalm 124: There are 150 Psalms in the library of Scripture. They give voice to a full range of human feelings and experience. As we read and pray them, we enter these conversations that have guided the relationship between God’s people and their God, adding our voices to theirs. Over the summer, we will be reflecting on many Psal…
 
Heroes of Faith: If you could change any part of your past, what would you change? For some of us, we would re-write painful memories. Some would change moments of failure. Some might demonstrate the depths of our love. It is a universal reality that every person has regrets - moments that they would change or at the least redeem. In this sermon, w…
 
Heroes of Faith: My dad once told me that if I tied my shoes myself that we could go on a boat ride. I was 5. Or however old one is when learning to tie their shoes. I missed my velcro's. Stylish and functional. Now I had to learn how to do it myself or I missed out on the wonderful Alberta lake mist in my face on a summer evening. Worth the risk. …
 
Heroes of Faith - Daniel 1 & 2: For many of us, when we think of the book of Daniel, our minds immediately go to images of Daniel in the lion’s den or his three friends in a fiery furnace. The first six chapters of Daniel are filled with dramatic stories of courage and deliverance. When we look deeper, we also discover rich examples of God’s people…
 
Heroes of Faith - Genesis 22:1-18: I’ve never started a conversation about faith with this story: “Hey have you read the story about when God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son?!” Child sacrifice doesn’t seem to be high on the appropriate on ramp for those sorts of conversations. How do you trust a God who askes a man to do that? Let alone the son …
 
Heroes of Faith - Isaiah 53: Rejection is an unavoidable aspect of being human. Proverbs 18:14 asks: “The spirit of a person can endure sickness, but a wounded spirit, who can bear?” The implication is—no one can. Rejection has many painful faces that leave us feeling alone, defeated and outcast. So, the question burns, “How can I go on living with…
 
Heroes of Faith - Malachi 3: If I were to offer you $1,000,000 in 10 - $100,000 bundles of large bills and ask you, with cash in hand, if you would be willing to give one of them back to the Lord as a tithe (which means a tenth) would anyone walk away from that invitation? Why is it however over the course of our lives, if you were to work 40 years…
 
Heroes of Faith - Jonah 1-4: We’ve all heard the story of Jonah, or at least parts of it. We’ve definitely heard about a stubborn prophet being swallowed by and spit out of a big fish. This small book, found in our library of Scripture, has had an impact that is out of proportion to its size. It’s four chapters have captured the imagination of arti…
 
Heroes of Faith: We all have one thing in common—each of us has or had a mother. At the same time, there is a wide variety of feelings about our mothers. For some Mother’s Day is a time of joy, for others it is painful, and even for others it reminds them of people they lost. To that end, as we gather this weekend, we will respect the tension betwe…
 
Holy Spirit: We need to consider a question – “what on earth is the Spirit doing?” and consider the implications of this question for ourselves – as individuals and for the congregation or church of which we are part.Rightly we ask: how and in what ways am I being called to be part of what God is doing in the world? And how are we, together as a co…
 
Holy Spirit - Ephesians 5:8-20: Before returning to His Father, Jesus promised his followers he would not leave them alone, but rather send the Holy Spirit in His place to carry on the story of God in our Lives. Too many believers, however, after receiving the gift of God’s salvation in Jesus seem to take the posture of waiting for the return of Je…
 
Gospel of Mark: He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! This Sunday we will gather to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus! On Good Friday we experience the pain and sorrow and wonder of self-sacrificing love. And then we wait. We wait for what is yet to come. We wait for God to do more than we could ask or imagine. And he does! Jesus journeys through deat…
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 11:1-11: In the Christian calendar, this weekend we enter the Passion week of Jesus, his last on earth before his death and resurrection. This week of his life comprises a quarter of the Gospel accounts and it does so for a reason. This Sunday, we will sink our roots into Mark 11 and 14 and enter into the experience of Jesus a…
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 12:41-44: As Easter approaches, we recall Jesus being arrested, unfairly tried, beaten, nailed to a cross and then placed in a sealed tomb. But on the third day, Jesus rose from the dead and exited the tomb alive! You might say, Jesus went “all in” … for you and for me. When Jesus asks people to follow him, his invitation has …
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 2:13-17: It’s when we are sick that we truly appreciate a doctor who takes time to notice, care and attend to our needs. But a doctor who avoids the sick is useless. The same is true with the spiritually sick. What good is the healing grace of Jesus unless it is shared with the broken? Watching Jesus in the Gospel of Mark remi…
 
Joshua - Joshua 1:1-9: The wellbeing of our lives, home, church, city often hinges on the power of promises kept or broken. The impact of making, keeping, receiving promises is enormous. God has been famously faithful to us over Foothills' history, and will yet be as we move into new territory in the next era. God promises, ‘As I have been with Mos…
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 1:16-20: There are two main "calls" within the human experience: self-indulgence and self-denial. The former being impulsive and the latter being an investment. The first an easy sell, the second a tremendously difficult thing to do. Jesus' call to his followers is an invitation. Humanity can say, "no thank you". But what is t…
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 1:1-11: Lent, popularly understood as a season of joyless custom and duty, carries almost too much religious baggage for some people. How then do we keep the gospel front and center in this season of shadows? The cross keeps our gospel focus clear. Lent is a season to journey with Jesus in his passion, to survey the cross, tak…
 
Identity in Christ: God sent the prophet Jeremiah to the potter’s house for a lesson on living a life submitted to a purposeful Potter’s hands. The clay cries, “I have been slammed on to a hard spinning wheel. I’m flying out of control. I am being squashed and squeezed and I know a fire lies ahead”. And Potter (God) says, “Carefully I threw you on …
 
Identity in Christ: Henri Nouwen (beloved theologian & writer) wrote: “One of the tragedies of our lives [as Christians] is that we keep forgetting who we are”. He is probably more right than wrong … which is a main reason we have spent the last several weeks in Colossians teaching and reminding ourselves about the overwhelming, life-changing treas…
