A Congregation of Conservative Evangelical Christians

SERMON: August 30, 2015 “So…What’s in it for Me?!”

Today is our Mission Sunday and Pastor Dave spoke from John 20:19-21:  “Peace be with you!  As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”  Our first step of missions is not to find a project; our first step is to understand the One who sends us.  Our focus has to be Christ centered, because as in Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.  Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.” As always, our Christ-centred focus enables us to remember “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land”. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
