• It's a question we often wonder, sometimes in our minds and sometimes with our words: Does prayer work? We find ourselves praying more frequently in the corona crisis, so how does God intend us to know him in prayer and conversation?

  • What is godly living in a world of so much uncertainty and confusion?

    God has not left us alone or uninformed on how our present lives can be lived with purpose and godliness, even in the midst of challenges and suffering.

  • What is God doing? It’s one of the least answered questions in this pandemic era. As we jump back into Daniel for the next three weeks we see at the end of the book that the spiritual reality is far greater and more dynamic than we can possibly understand.

  • Church, this isn't the way I imagined Easter weekend going this year. But the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is just as true in our homes as it is when we are gathered together for worship.

  • Daniel had a reputation as a man of prayer.   In Daniel 6 we learned that his peers and the leaders of the Mede-Persia empire, knowing that Daniel petitioned his God daily, tried to have him killed by decreeing a law against such acts.   In Daniel 9, nearing the end of his life, we hear one of these prayers to God. Join us this Sunday as we learn from Daniel how to pray to the God whom he described as “great and awesome!” 

  • This year, Easter looks a little bit different.


    We would typically all gather at the Dowd YMCA, rejoice and sing loud with our community about the resurrection of Jesus, cheer as our friends get baptised, and soak up the afternoon at Latta Park around picnic tables of delicious food and a lawn full of colorful Easter Eggs. While that may not be the case this year, it does not mean we should celebrate any less. Christ is alive! The victory is won! There are plenty of ways to still make this Easter special and memorable, here are a few suggestions and we’d love to hear yours.

  • Just as in Daniel's situation - we find ourselves with a lack of words and paralyzed by fear from the dangers we face in this broken and corrupt world. However, scripture tells us to find understanding and to bear witness of our indomitable hope in God.

  • As Pastor Shawn was saying on Sunday, “The church was made for times of adversity.” Our hope and prayer is we use this time wisely and for the good of God’s Kingdom. We wanted to share some practical ways below how you can be a positive presence in a time of great uncertainty and fear.

  • After a crazy week, many of you may be asking the question: Who is in control?

    God is in control. As we've seen from the beginning of Daniel, the be in the hands of evil King Nebuchadnezzar is not to be out of the control of God. Despite the health circumstances around us, he has been perfecting his plan from the beginning of time. We can trust Him especially in the chaos of life.
