Love Your Neighbor

Has something ever been on your mind and you just wanted to share it with everyone? Well today I was thinking specifically about the scripture:
" Love your neighbor as yourself" (Matthew 19:19)
God loves your neighbor enough to die for them. You are God's ambassador, representing God to your neighbor, for the purpose of demonstrating His love.
???Did you know that eight times in the Bible we are told to love our neighbor. It happens to be one of the Bible's most repeated commands.???
Love without actions is DEAD...
What are you doing to show God's love to your neighbor today?

Stop Squeezing a Living Out of Life

Today we concluded our TV mini series with a sermon that addressed the drama in our lives. Captain Les reminded us that we should'nt turn to TV shows such as desperate housewives, 24, House, Grey's Anatomy etc. to hide from the stresses and pressures of life. Instead we need to face our sturggles head on with God's help. During the sermo Captain Les identified the need to obey God's promises. To find out more about the specific promises be sure to go to and type in the search box "God's Promises"

I hope to see each and every single one of you at church on Sunday. Why you ask? We are blessed to have our own personal MR. JON SAVAGE preaching!!! WOO HOO!!

He always does an amazing job so let's all be there on Sunday to support the #1 Youth Pastor AND guitar player/singer in a worship team band in the world! (With the world's cutest kids)


Blizzard warning for:City of Edmonton-St. Albert
I guess this is what a real true winter in Alberta is all about huh? If it is, I am sure we all would wanna go on a vacation to Hawaii, Mexico, Jamaica or Florida? How does that sound right now? Warm Weather? Swimming on the beaches? Hot sand burning our feet?
  • Make sure you guys bundle up when you go outside to stay extra warm.
  • Use those wonderful inventions called "Fireplaces and Fleece Pj's (those slipper socks that Capt. Tiffany was talking about on Sunday come in really handy for the day and night as well)"
  • And who knows....maybe a SNOW DAY is in the future???
Just wishing Capt. Les and Tiffany a safe journey to Kananaskis. We will miss you this week. We hope you guys relax and have a great time!! See you guys when you get back



I hope everyone has had a tremendous holiday/vacation/break, but the time has come when the programs start beginning again and the busyness of our lives and homes start to fill the air once again. How exciting right? R-I-G-H-T!!! You bet it is!! Busy is what keeps people going.

Thought of the Day: Many of us struggle to bring God into the busyness of our lives. Our busy schedule can squeeze out our prayer time, and when we do pray, we may find it difficult to bring our activities to God as prayer topics. We might think that God can't possibly be interested in our work life, or in our housework, or our leisure time. Yet the God who is the Lord of all of our lives, is interested in everything we do.

Take Care Guys!

Some More....

1. I will put God first in all areas of my life. "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." (Exodus 20:3) I will not allow money, family, fame, or any material object to become more important to me than the God I serve.
2. I will not worship idols. "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me." (Exodus 20:4-5) I will not treat any statue as if it were God. Neither will I worship a picture of Jesus, but rather Jesus himself.
3. I will not use the Lord's name unless it brings him glory and honor. "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain." (Exodus 20:7) I will not say "Jesus Christ" when I am angry or "Oh My God" when I am in shock.
4. I will set Sundays apart as a special day. "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy." (Exodus 20:8) Just as God rested on the seventh day so will I.
5. I will treat my Father and Mother with respect. "Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee." (Exodus 20:12) I will obey my parents and give them honor.
6. I will not commit murder. "Thou shalt not kill." (Exodus 20:13) I will never take the life of another human being, remembering that God is the only one who gives life and has the right to take it away.
7. I will not cheat on my spouse by having an affair. "Thou shalt not commit adultery." (Exodus 20:14) I will view my marriage as a ministry and remain true to the one God has joined me together with in Holy Matrimony.
8. I will not take anything that belongs to someone else. "Thou shalt not steal." (Exodus 20:15. I will treat other people's property with respect and always ask first if I want to borrow something.
9. I will keep my tongue bridled and tell no lies. "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." (Exodus 20:16) I will never spread false gossip about someone else or say anything that I don't know for a fact is true.
10. I will not harbor desire for the things other people have. "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's." (Exodus 20:17) I may like what other people have, but I will not let it consume me to the point that I feel I must have it.

It would benefit a Christian to memorize the above 10 commandments found in the 20th chapter of Exodus and turn them in to this years resolutions. Why not make a resolution you know God wants to be a priority in your life and learn more about his word at the same time.

Happy 2007!

Hey guys! HAPPY 2007

Sorry for the lack of posts lately but I think I am back up and ready to go now. How has everyone's christmas and new years been? I am sure EVERYONE is looking forward to the kids going back to school on the 8th so there will be some peace and quiet back in the I right?

I was reading an article on the internet about the top ten new year's resolution: Maybe some of theses were yours?

1) Spend more time with friends and family
2) Fit in Fitness
3) Tame the Bulge
4) Quit Smoking
5) Enjoy life more
6) Quit drinking
7) Get out of debt
8) Learn something new
9) Get your life organized (whether it is organizing your basement to something as simple as organizing your fridge)

Did you know that fewer than 10% of people who set New Year's Resolutions actually achieve them? How can you ensure YOUR success? Try using the Top 10 Tips below.

1. Write Them Down. It's a fact: writing down your goals gives you a higher chance of success.
2. Commit. Move beyond the land of "good ideas" to promise yourself to show up for your goals.
3. Tell People. Let your biggest fans in on your new commitments and goals for the year.
4. Get Accountability. Even better than just letting others in on your "secret" dreams and goals-get some accountability. Meet for lunch once a month with a group that will ask you, "So, how's it going with your goal?" Get some support!
5. Make a Plan. Ensure success with a step-by-step plan. You'll find an easy plan to make your goal a reality.
6. Do a Goal Check-In. Before you decide on what you'll take on for the year, make certain you can answer, "YES!" to the following questions: "Am I the primary reason for setting this goal (vs. your mom, boyfriend, wife, boss, society)? Do I feel alive and energized by this goal? Is this goal in line with my life purpose or mission?"
7. Get Real! If you're contemplating putting a goal down that you always put down and never achieve, take a second look. How will this goal end DIFFERENTLY this year? Is this goal something you need to let go of? What purpose is it serving you? What's a good enough reason to finally achieve this goal?
8. Focus With Reminders. Once you've got your goals and plan in place, figure out ways to remind yourself.
9. Believe and Visualize. What will these goal do to you and your life in the future?

and remember to always keep God first and foremost in each and everyone's life! Without him, you can't achieve any of your goals for this coming year!!
