Jesus selected an inner circle of disciples to have the benefit of sharing closely in his life and ministry. They were expected to learn from his teaching but they were also to glean wisdom from observing the larger context of what Jesus said and did. Significant details from those events are recorded in the accounts preserved for us in the Gospels. In this “Walking With Jesus” sermon series we will explore some of those Gospel accounts of Jesus ministry to gain a deeper understanding of even the more subtle implications of what our Lord said and did. This series will not follow the chronology of Jesus ministry - though sermons will often be linked to the Christian year. For an introduction to this new sermon series select Walking with God.
Join us for a Pancake Supper on Tuesday, February 17th. from 5 to 7 pm. Share a meal of pancakes and sausages with your friends and neighbours in Alberton. There is no fixed charge but a goodwill offering will be received.
Mostly Scripture - Mini Audio MeditationsDr. Bob has created a series of mini mediations which are, in fact, mostly scripture. Listen to scripture as read from the Contemporary English Version. Dr. Bob precedes each passage with a very brief word of introduction and closes it with a one sentence prayer. The passage being read is also provided in print. This small collection of readings will continue to be augmented with additional selections. To access a list of this material simply select Mostly Scripture.

Remembering Our Past Remembering our past is not just about studying history. Being more aware of the past can shape how we think about life today and plan for the future. History can also help us to appreciate the spiritual dimension of life. We highlight a few events from the past with a Canadian Connection to illustrate this. Click on each entry for details.
