L.I.F.E. W.O.R.K. & P.L.A.Y.

Personally, I believe that every person is designed to incarnate Christ by being on Mission and living in Community.

I define Mission as helping people  who are not “in covenant community” to find their way to a covenant community.  This could be our next door neighbour, the people we work with, or even people we don’t know across the world; “helping people” to become part of Christ’s community.  I define “Community” as the place where you come together to Worship Our Real King with a group of like-minded people that you are designed by God for Loving Intentionally For Eternity as you Pray, Listen, Abide, and Yearn together with Jesus Christ for His glory.

In short: I see the Mission of the Church is to “get out of the boat” to help people “come into the boat” (Community). That defines both and our Mission to our neighbours our Missions to Kenya, Mexico and where ever else God should lead us as well! We invite you to read and view the many stories that have seen our L.I.F.E. Teams in action.

  • 1 Samuel 17:37-51 Faith that slays the giants in life!

    By Monday this last week I had talked with 4 people who had giant sized issues that they were dealing with in their lives. 

  • A study on Ephesians (Chapter 1)

      The Messenger 1 Introduction In the 90’s stereograms, you may recall, were all the rage. A stereogram, of course, is just the fancy name for a 3D image hidden within another picture. When you first look at the picture it appears as nothing more than a meaningless jumble of lines and colours. It does […]

  • A Study on Ephesians (Chapter 2)

    The Messenger 2 Introduction For as long as we live in this 4-dimensional world of space and time there is going to be an ongoing struggle between faith and our senses. Let me illustrate what I mean. Jesus said “Lo, I am with you all the days – perpetually, uniformly and on every occasion – […]

  • A Study on Ephesians (Chapter 3)

    The Messenger 1   Introduction We are going to turn our thoughts now to the third and final chapter under the doctrinal section of the letter to the Ephesians. It is a chapter that falls into four main themes: Paul’s concern for his readers (verses 1 and 13); Confirmation of Paul’s special calling to “make […]

  • Acts 20:7-12 Remember the Christ of Christmas with Commuion

    Good Morning, Christmas is less than 20 days away! Did you know that you and I share a heritage that began almost 2000 years ago?  We likely do it somewhat differently then they did but the principle and practice remains some two thousand years later.  And it will be a part of the church, part […]

  • Acts 3:1-10 You and me making HIStory

    Can you think of an event in your life that caused you to believe that God was real? Few things overwhelm our soul and generate faith like personal encounters with our God.  I’m talking about those times when God acts in and through us that opens our eyes to the reality of the Almighty.  And […]

  • Cameos in HIStory: Acts 4:13-22

    Should we actually greet people with Merry Christmas? I have a confession to make…I love this season.   The whole season of Advent.  I admit it.  Christmas is one of my favourite times of year!  Even with its hustle and bustle and everything else that comes with it.   So I’m probably not the best […]

  • Exodus 14:10-17 Like learning lessons the hard way?!

    To see all of today’s study questions, click here. How many of you like learning lessons the hard way? Have you ever noticed that you learn some lessons much harder than others?  I was out flying my quad-copter-camera near Vaseux Lake this spring and had just taken off to do a sweep over a rock […]

  • Exodus 14:21-31 Fear of the LORD brings freedom from FEAR!

    “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:19).  “But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop them…; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” (Acts 5:39)  Fear of the LORD brings freedom from FEAR! How many of you actually […]

  • Exodus 3:1-12 A burning desire to leave a legacy?

    I often drive by the Hospital as I go back and forth from home to work.  And for the last couple of years now they have had this big digital sign facing Government and Carmi.  The sign flashes several messages but the predominant theme is leave your legacy, support the Hospital Foundation. Sometimes it congratulates […]

  • Exodus 4:10-17 Reach Beyond Your Comfort Zone! He did!

    To see all of today’s study questions, click here. I like this picture!  The cross is empty!  The tomb vacated! He has Risen! He has Risen indeed!  It is such Good News.  Especially when you know the risen Lord.   And know the power of His word to heal the broken hearted and set captives […]
