Have you ever found yourself in prayer but by the end you don’t remember what God was saying to you? Have you ever found yourself reading something in the Bible but forgetting what you read a short time later? Or have you wondered why following Jesus hasn’t really changed your life? In this message, Pastor Marc Gagnon takes us through a parable in Luke 8 to unpack the meaning behind Jesus’ words, reminding us that if we’re committed to following Jesus, we have to be here for more than just the miracles.

Have you ever felt like God is unresponsive or not listening to your cries for help? In this section of Luke 7, Pastor Marc Gagnon takes us through Jesus’ unexpected response toward his cousin, and shows us that even when God doesn’t do what we want, we can still trust that he’s working.

Our world has always been polarized… social media has just made us far more aware of it. Things were even polarized in Jesus day. And Jesus has a unique way, not of yelling, name calling or throwing stuff… but of reaching across the divide with life. Join us today as we see an unexpected way forward in the midst of polarized times.

This week, we bless Jeff as he transitions from his role as Executive Pastor. Marc and Robyn also have a Q & A with questions inspired by our journey through the book of Luke.

What do we do when we bump into a part of the bible that seems to disagree with another part or when Jesus says something contradictory? Should we ignore it? Do some theological gymnastics to make it make sense? Pick the version we prefer and go with it?
The answer isn’t what you think.
In this message, our Teaching Pastor, Marc Gagnon walks us through a section of Luke 6 that was meant to liberate, but instead has been used time and time again to hurt people.

Have you ever had something stolen from you, like maybe a backpack, or a wallet? Did you try to find them so you could give them more than they took? Of course not! But how then are we supposed to respond to scripture passages like Luke 6:29 that seem to instruct us to do so? In today’s message, pastor Marc Gagnon leads us through this section of scripture as we explore what Jesus meant when he called for “turning the other cheek”, and the unexpected way we are called to treat those around us.

Why do we fast? Why do we pray? Why do we do any of the things we do when it comes to following Jesus? Are we following Him blindly, just going through the motions of religious tradition because someone – a pastor, a parent, someone in the church – told us that’s how it’s done? In this message, Pastor Marc Gagnon leads us through a section of Luke 5 as Jesus calls out the religious people of the day for following rules and traditions without thoughtful reflection. This unexpected response takes us deeper into scripture as we examine what it means for us as we follow Jesus today!

Think of a time you had a disagreement with someone. This person may have treated you poorly, said something offensive, or made it clear that they don’t believe in the same things you do. How did you react? Today, Pastor Marc is going to lead us through another section of Luke as we watch Jesus’ encounter with one of the most hated groups of people of his time, his unexpected decision to join them for dinner, and what we can learn from how he treated those outcasts and criminals.
