Worshipping the baby

A quick note to say that we had church again this morning Sunday, the 26th December.
We’ve celebrated Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Terry Whalin on God’s Firestarters

W. Terry Whalin

Another great book review of God’s Firestarters, a recommended Christmas present for your friends and family. Available on Amazon in ebook and paperback: Amazon USA or Amazon Canada

5.0 out of 5 stars Read to Stir the Passion to Win Others to Christ

I’ve had a life-long fascination with biographies. Real stories from the lives of others can give us insight and inspiration for our own lives. Rev Dr Ed and Janice Hird tell the stories of twenty people in GOD’’S FIRESTARTERS who had profound impact on their world. As the authors explain in their opening chapter, “How does God use everyday people to advance the Gospel? GOD’S FIRESTARTERS plunges you into the astonishing true stories of twenty heroes of the faith who loved from the 16th – 21st centuries.” (Page 1)
Each story is well-written and researched with documented endnotes of the various sources. I enjoyed the variety of stories built into this book. In particular, I enjoyed the chapter on Chuck Smith at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, Father of the Jesus Movement Revival, and this statement, “Through the Jesus movement in the late 1960s and ‘70s, two to three million young people, including ourselves, came into the Kingdom.” (Page 82)
I highly recommend GOD’S FIRESTARTERS.

All Saints Crescent Beach

This Sunday we’re celebrated the Second Sunday of Advent. Praise the Lord!
During the season of Advent we light our Advent Wreath. Each week a family will light the Advent candle. I’ll also begin a preaching series on “The Foundations of the Christian Faith.” During the season of Advent, each week I’ll preach on one of the key doctrines of the church.
We look forward to seeing you this Sunday. What a privilege it is to gather with the saints to worship the God-man who came to earth as a little baby! (In case you missed it, here is the recording of our service from last Sunday, the 21st November 2021. You can find the service by clicking HERE.
After Church we celebrated with our All Saints Christmas party pot-luck lunch.
This week we have moved the furniture into the church; pews will be available on Sunday. Yippee!!
Don’t forget our Prayer and Fasting vigil every night at the church at 7:00pm. We’re going to pray and fast until God tells us to stop. You are welcome to join us any night at the church for prayer.
Continue to pray for us as we negotiate with the City of Surrey with regards to our building permits.
Thanks Church.
Stay vigilant and prayerful.
Love each other and keep Jesus at the centre of everything you do.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or needs.
Lord willing, I’ll see you.
Blessings on all you do.
The peace of our Lord,
