Our relationship with Jesus is always about growth, not checking boxes!
This Sunday, we begin our Markers of Maturity series.
In this series, we will look at things like worship, prayer, the bible and generosity and how these markers can help indicate our growth and development in our relationship with Jesus.
This Sunday we officially kicked off 2020 at CBC with a service that celebrates in expectation of what God has for our community and how we can play a part this year.
A plant will only grow well if its roots go down deep into good soil. In this Philippians passage we are pulling apart, we will see Paul talk about being intentional in the direction we grow our roots.
Rejoicing, anti-anxiety, PEACE! All of these capture our hearts and minds when we hear them, but why so often is there a sense that they are so hard to grasp? This week in our Philippians series we are going to be looking at what Paul says is the go to for joy, wholeness and peace and how they can become commonplace in our lives.
This Sunday we will explore how our priorities change as we grow our relationship with Jesus. Jesus is calling us to seek what truly matters.
This week in our series we looked at Philippians 2:1-2 and unpacked what a life rooted in God's love looks like and how this impacts who we are and who we are becoming as followers of Jesus.
What is the key to living a spiritually healthy Christian life?
There are as many theories out there as there are people on the planet.
Paul, who wrote most of the NT, has some super insightful guidance that is both easy to understand and very practical. Paul says we need to learn to love well, and as we do this we will naturally produce spiritual fruit and replicate Jesus. BUT - how on earth do you love well?

This Sunday we finish our Christmas series "A Thrill of Hope" with the story of the Magi. There are a lot of theories about who they were, where they were from and what they were doing but what we do know is that they came seeking one who would change this weary world forever.
In today's message, we are going to look at three more stages in the birth narrative of Jesus.
We will be exploring some pretty interesting facts that we often miss.
-What is Josephs emotional reaction to Mary when he wakes from his Angel dream?
-When you stop to think about it, who is really sleeping in an animal feed trough?
-Why is Jesus surrounded by criminals his whole life?
I'd strongly argue that Mary has no idea how she will become pregnant from the Holy Spirit. Yet, in simple child-like faith she submits her body to the gentle will of Almighty God.
How is it that this illiterate teenager who lived 2,000 years ago, can teach us so much about trusting the leading of God?
