An Awesome God!!

Last week we announced that the lease on our current building will be finishing on May 31st.

A few years ago I received a prophetic word from a guest speaker saying that, just like the Israelites in the Book of Exodus, this leased building was just a tent on our way to the Promised Land. We have outgrown our tent, there are many issues with our tent, such as sharing this property with other tenants and the lack of nearby parking, not to mention the permit numbers limitations that need us to run two services and the lack of a room for our youth discipleship, on Sunday mornings. It is time for us to pack up our tent and move on. We are on our way to the land that God promised us, now or in the future. We are not sure if there is another tent on the way but we are moving. We urgently need God’s leading, guiding and direction.

Will you, North Church, young or old, commit to praying and seeking God for this matter?

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jer 29:13

God Bless,

Michelle

Welcome

Sunday, October 28th, 2018

I came across these words (printed below), affirming the basis of our assurance of salvation, as I was curious as to how many references came from the Book of 1 John. As we conclude our recent mini-series in the letter of 1 John, I trust that the things we have been reflecting upon, over these past few weeks, have had an impact on your soul and the way in which you live.

‘Rests on the Word of God (John 1:12), the witness of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16), keeping God’s Word (I John 2:5), walking like Christ (I John 2:6), not loving the world (I John 2:15), purification (I John 3:3), love for the brethren (I John 3:14), true love (I John 3:18-19), answered prayer (I John 3:22), overcoming the world (I John 5:4)’.

God Bless,

Brett

Our hearts are heavy but…

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.” John 11:25-26

One of our foundation members, Barb Fotheringham, went to be with Jesus this past week. We will miss her immensely. Our love & prayers are with her family.

God Bless,

Brett & Michelle

Something New

“No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.” (Matthew 9:16, 17)

North Church is on the verge of something ‘new’.

  • New vision (Proverbs 29:18)
  • New plans (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • New cost (Luke 14:28-30)

I believe the LORD has already been preparing us and forming something new in us so that we will be able to hold the blessings (new wine) that are to come.

We live in exciting days.

God Bless,

Brett

Welcome

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

1 John 2:1-11

In our second week into the book of 1 John we’re taking another look at LOVE.

Whether it is in our home; workplace; school; Church; or wherever we spend our time we’ll come across people who ‘rub us the wrong way’ or do the wrong thing by us. It’s always here we have a choice as to how we will respond. Jesus said to ‘turn the other cheek’ (Matthew 5:38-40) and to ‘love our enemies’ (Matthew 5:43-48). To love someone difficult always takes faith. Our natural inclination is to seek justice and, at times, retribution.

We always have a choice:

  • Do we harden our hearts toward the other person?
  • Do we simply ignore them?
  • Do we hope they will ‘go away’?
  • Do we merely ‘tolerate’ them?
  • Or do we live by a higher standard … and love?

God Bless,

Brett

New preaching series

Over the next few weeks we’re going to be taking a look at the Book of 1 John.

John was referred to as ‘the Disciple whom Jesus loved’ (John 13:23). As we unpack various themes including light; love; identity; the world; spirituality; and faith, my prayer is that our love for God and for one-another grows deeper (Psalm 42:7).

At the heart of the letter is a profound statement that reminds us that Christianity is unique among the religions of the world; ‘How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are’ (1 John 3:1).

God Bless,

Brett

Future

As we celebrate 11 years since launching our first public Service, it’s only natural to look back and reflect on God’s faithfulness, mercy and love. As I reflect, I am so grateful to God and thankful for the great things He has done among us. However, along with ‘blessings’ (Ephesians 1:3), there have been ‘battles’ (Ephesians 6:12). IF I had known eleven years ago what I know today, I wonder if I would have signed up?

As we look ahead another ten or eleven years, there is a lot of work to be done. There are thousands upon thousands of people who do not know the love and grace of God. If we knew what the future held, we might not sign up – there will be great things to celebrate, but it will come at a cost (Luke 14:28-34).

‘Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up’ (Galatians 6:9).

God Bless,

Brett

Psalm 51

10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

Let’s think about this passage in a broader context:

10 Create in us a pure heart, O God,
    and renew a steadfast spirit within us.
11 Do not cast us from your presence
    or take your Holy Spirit from us.
12 Restore to us the joy of your salvation
    and grant us a willing spirit, to sustain us.

 

God Bless,

Welcome

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

Joshua 3:5

Prior to the people of Israel claiming the ‘promised land’ Joshua told the people, ‘Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you’.

It is now time for us to secure land of our own for God’s glory and His purposes for the years ahead. The leadership of North Church have resolved to engage the services of a Town Planner to assist in identifying the right potential block of land (in the months ahead) and will come back to the Church in due course with potential proposals for purchase.

What is it that we can do?

  • We can pray
  • We can consecrate ourselves; which means to ‘make holy’ or ‘set aside our lives’
  • We can give

Over coming weeks, we will be sharing more about how we can practically pray, consecrate and give however, let’s also believe that ‘tomorrow’ the Lord will do amazing things among us.

God Bless,

Brett
