The psalmist who penned Psalms 42 and 43 was not unfamiliar with worry and anxiety. In these psalms, however, they both revealed to us the extent to which the human experience can be consumed by despair and the heights to which our joy can rise when we dwell on the Lord's goodness. Join us as we study a hope that is rooted in our knowledge of the Lord and His promises to the believer!
The gospel promises that we will have problems in this world, and that we shouldn't let it trouble us. This often seems easier said than done; especially when the storm is raging around us and no clear-skies are in sight. As we explore the psalms this week, we'll see that anxiety was just as familiar to the writers of Scripture as it is to us, and that the comfort they found in God's promises has been made available to us in Christ.
This Sunday, our sermon from 1 Peter 4:7 is entitled “The End of All Things” The Christian sees history as His story – the story of God’s redemptive plan. This helps us when the world seems to be falling into chaos and disarray. Come as we consider how helpful and hopeful it is to see things from God’s perspective.
This Sunday the message was entitled Making Christ’s Purpose Your Purpose. Little do we think that the reason for many of our struggles is that we have no clear aim in our lives. Every believer is given a clear purpose and if they live daily in light of it, they will live distinctly in a world that needs to see Jesus. Come and let’s consider how to arm ourselves with the purpose of Jesus.
This Sunday, we looked at Messy Marriages and God’s Mission, part II. In this week’s passage, Peter talks specifically to husbands reminding them of God’s call upon their lives as husbands. There is no doubt that God wants men who reflect Him and rely on Him as they love and lead their families. Come as we consider this much-needed Biblical model for marriage.
This Sunday, Pastor Kevin’s sermon is entitled Rescuing Freedom. In our day and age, freedom is understood by many to be the unhindered opportunity to live as the master of their own lives. Little do people know that this zeal to do whatever we please whenever we please is slavery. In Jesus Christ, freedom looked very different. He used His freedom to lay down His life. What do a truly free people live in a world that lives under the illusion that they are free? Come next Sunday as we study 1 Peter 2:13-17.

The Sunday, we are glad to have Pastor Steve Kim speaking. His sermon is called “Learning to Wait on God’s Timing.” In times of severe hardships, it can become frustrating and confusing when God seems silent. Waiting for God can be painful and the temptation to take matters into our own hands can be strong. But the Sovereign Lord is always in control of the situation. He knows what he’s doing and if it seems like he’s slow to act, there’s a perfect divine reason for that as well. So what do you do when you’re in the midst of suffering? Learn to wait patiently on Him who is the mighty Saviour.
