We had such a great time celebrating the mothers of ACC and honoring all of the ladies last week didn’t we? It was also exciting to have Andrew and Michelle (Kate and Malachi) back at Alderbrook after their three year Missions assignment in Zambia, Africa.
This Sunday we are so pleased to have the Abbotsford Cyrus Centre with us as they talk about their mission and ministry to the youth of our city. I am so glad that our church has connected with the Cyrus Centre, and Sunday you will hear how we can come alongside even more. Mark your calendars also for our monthly Cyrus Centre cooking (May 27th, 7:30pm at the Sieberts). This is a real practical way to show and demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ to the youth of our city!!.
This Sunday I was asked to speak on the topic of Heaven. First of all, let me say that it has been such a wonderful opportunity to spend time in God’s Word and prepare for this message about Heaven. I am so looking forward to sharing this message of the hope that we have and what we can look forward to. Here are some of the things that we are going to look at this Sunday:
*Where is Heaven?
*What is Heaven like?
*Who is in Heaven right now?
*Will we know each other in Heaven?
*What will we do in Heaven?
*How can we be assured that we are going to Heaven?
The Bible has so much to say about all of these questions. I can hardly wait to share it.
See you on Sunday,
Pastor Glenn and Cheryl
*New Sermon Series: “REHAB–Healing the Hurts in Life”
As children we often scraped our knee’s bumped our heads, bruised our arms…and usually mom would come and embrace us, kiss our injury and let us know that everything would be okay.
But what happens as we grow older and the accidents get bigger. Or what about some of the habits, actions or words that we use…that actually hurt other people? We all have been hurt as adults in life, but if we are honest…as adults we have hurt other people too. Maybe its a careless action, an unkind word (or many words) or destructive habits that we just haven’t been able to shake or let go.
God knows exactly what to do…it’s sort of a ‘spiritual rehab’….
