Personal Need

Heavenly Father, We come to you with hearts full of thankfulness. Thank you that you love us no matter what; nothing can separate us from your abundant love. Thank you that when we are weak, you are strong.  Thank you that you care about all the details of our lives, even the smallest things matter to you.  Thank you for your constant presence as you walk with us moment by moment, day by day. We

Emerging Generations

Father, Each morning, I wait for my classroom of bustling students to arrive. As they enter the hallway, I listen. And so their stories are told. In their words and by their actions, I am reminded daily of the battles your children face. One where they struggle to accept their differences as beauty. One where their own communities refuse to accept their unique quirks and gifts as valuable. I hear it in the way they

Vision/Mission, Leadership & Staff

Good, Good Father, We come to you with thankful hearts, ready to start a new year in your Son's strength. There is so much to do oh Lord, and yet we know if we do not do it by keeping in step with your Holy Spirit that we will labour in vain. And so we ask God that you would attune us to your voice. May our choices reflect your will. We ask and pray

The Forgotten

I remember a Friday night many years ago when friends going away for a weekend left without me simply because I couldn’t get off work till 6pm.  I’ve since recovered from that slight (even had a good weekend without them!) but it was no fun at the time to be forgotten. You likely have a story of being forgotten.  It may be a profound story that has shaped your life or an easily forgiven oversight

A Call to Prayer Reflection

As we gathered together last night at ForestView for our opening night of Week of Prayer, we were presented with much to pray about. Looking at the double-sided handout was a reminder that as a church, we are a fairly large body with lots of hands and feet, eyes and ears!   These various body parts represent a lot of people serving in various capacities; some making big decisions that only come once every decade

Reflecting on a Week of Prayer

Week of Prayer is one of my favourite things that we do together as a church.  I love picking a time slot where I know I can set aside whatever I'm doing to pick a quiet spot in the house, put on some peaceful music, light a candle or two and spend time with God.  It's a time where I can re-evaluate where I am at with God and where I'd like to be. This

A Prayer for Personal Need

Lord, We meet you in the stillness to pray for our own personal needs. We surrender our façade – the image of self-sufficiency we have constructed for ourselves.  We let go of who we feel we should be, and dwell in your presence in the freedom of who we really are. You see us, Lord. And you know us intimately. We rush around as though we have it all together. But you see the innermost

A Prayer for Global Missions

Father of all,   You love me wide as the world, and You still have space to love every other an equal span. So Your love wraps round this earth seven billion times over.   I want my love to go the distance too. But I confess I’m caught in my own tiny world; caring most about the things I can see, taste, and touch. Caring most about myself. The seven billion others an afterthought,

A Prayer for Emerging Generations

Our Gracious Father, You are our sovereign God—the Creator of all things good.  You knit us in our mother’s womb and have made us in your image—to be glory carriers; to be salt and light into the world. Thank you for our Church.  Thank you for your faithfulness over generations.  Thank you for your provision and blessings in our midst.  We praise you for the growing diversity—in all ways imaginable—in the Church.  We thank you
