GO! The “E” Word

Someone once said, “Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary use words.” It’s a nice idea… but it’s not in the Bible. The reality is that evangelism (the ‘E’ word!) must include both word and deed,but often we are pretty uncomfortable with the word part. So how can we get better at proclaiming the good news of Jesus with our words? What are some practical things we can do to better at evangelism in our neighbourhoods?  Listen here to find out!

Scarred: Finding God When the Hurt Just Won’t Go Away

The reality is that life is hard and that sometimes our hurts and our pains don’t go away.

Watch here as we wrap up our “Scarred” series by talking about this very important issue.
