Missions (May 2014)

Together we look forward to messages to inspire and instruct us in the redemptive work of Christ in our world and how we can get involved. We welcome three guests who will share God’s word this month.
May 4th 11:00  Rev. Dr. Gary Nelson – Mission? – Gary is the President of Tyndale University, College and Seminary.  Gary – a beloved member of our church; he has served as the head of our Canadian Baptist Ministries and has written a number of books on subjects relating to church and mission.  Gary can draw upon a tremendous breadth of local and global experience as he resources us in ministry.

May 18th 11:00 Witnesses   In Acts 1:8,9 Jesus calls his followers to be witnesses in a local to global expansion of his Kingdom expression.  For this mission we are assured Holy Spirit power.  Is being a witness watching, working or both?  Together we will explore what this means.
