Sunday Morning Preview - September 24, 2017

In Matthew 6:13 Jesus teaches us to pray, “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” This Sunday we will seek to better understand what it means to ask the Father not to lead us into temptation.

The primary strategy of Satan is to deceive; he is a deceiver by nature, so he tempts us by planting thoughts and/or feelings that are false. He lies to us about what will bring satisfaction and where true happiness is to be found.

How then does the Father deliver us? 
Please join me for Week 11 of the Lord’s Prayer Series and a message entitled, “A Desperate Plea.” 

Dr. Ann Mckenzie will also be sharing and answering questions regarding what Christians can do to support Bill 34. If you haven’t seen the video you can check the DCC Facebook page or visit  www.canadiansforconscience.ca

I hope to see you all Sunday morning!

Sunday Morning Preview - September 17, 2017

This Sunday morning at DCC we continue our Summer Series on the Lord’s Prayer with a sermon entitled “Cause Us To Flee”.

Jesus now instructs his disciples to ask the Father for deliverance from temptation and evil —  indicating that this is a necessity on par with the need for forgiveness or daily bread. The situation, as the Apostle Paul describes it:

“I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin…”

In light of this truth, how are believers to treat the ongoing reality of temptation and sin? Are we meant to just ignore it? Should we pretend sin doesn’t exist, dusting ourselves off after each fall and denying that anything happened? Or are we are meant to drag ourselves through life under the constant weight of guilt and shame?

I hope you will join me as we rejoice in the often elusive gospel solution to the problem at hand.

Sunday Morning Preview - August 27, 2017


I hope everyone will be able to make it out to Church this Sunday morning for a special sermon from DCC Elder Tyson Keffer entitled, “The Confidence of Man.

We are living in a time when the world seems to be turning upside down. Standards of social acceptance are shifting quickly away from traditional values, and more so from the biblical world view. On this shifting moral landscape, where are we as Christians to plant our feet?
When the truth proclaimed in God’s word comes under attack, where do we as Christians find our confidence? 

Join me this Sunday as we explore our citizenship in God’s kingdom and what it means for us who call Christ our king.

Sunday Morning Preview - August 20, 2017

Please join me this Sunday morning as we continue our Summer Series on the Lord’s Prayer with a sermon entitled, “Forgive Our Debts.

From this next petition in the Lord’s prayer we learn two significant truths, first that we are debtors to God because of our sin and second that we are not the only ones in debt. We have debtors of our own, people who owe us something because of what they have done to/against us. 
Jesus has freed us from the debt of our sin, and because of that, we must freely forgive others.Picturing sin as a debt owed to God, points us to the heart of the Christian faith—forgiveness. I hope to see you all tomorrow morning!
