Every family has a family name which does two things: 1. it identifies us from other families, and 2. it identifies us as one family — who’s part of our family and who isn’t. In today’s passage (Luke 8:19-21) Jesus pushes against traditional family ties, not to disparage the family, but to enlarge it to include those who we wouldn’t normally consider family. Our collective family name is JESUS! In these few verses we unpack the earth-shattering, unfathomable, ground-breaking challenge of Jesus to expand our concept of family to include any and all who “hear the message and do it” (Luke 8:15).

What was the purpose of Jesus’ miracles? Everywhere he went he was displaying his power over disease, nature, and even death. But at the heart of these displays of power we see the heart of Jesus for people, particularly the vulnerable. In this message, Pastor Robyn Elliott takes us through a section of Luke 7 and shows us how Jesus again blows us away with his call to justice — social justice. How do we join him? Let’s grab a bier with Jesus!

What does it mean to be blessed? In a society built upon power and wealth, we usually picture blessing in terms of material things, in being rich and powerful. But does this align with what we read in the bible? Are those people considered blessed by Jesus? Join us today as Pastor Robyn Elliott leads us through a section of Luke 6 and we explore what the bible says about Jesus’ view towards the weak, the marginalized, the poor. We will dive into the unexpected vision Jesus casts, and explore what it would mean if we cared for the poor and outcast as he did.

What sort of descriptions do you think of when you think of love? Perhaps words like happy, caring, or unconditional. But what about polarizing? How could something good like love be such a thing? In this message, Pastor Robyn Elliott leads us through a section of Luke 6 as we see Jesus’ love for people become just that! We’ll watch as Jesus’ unconditional love and desire to help and to heal becomes a polarizing issue for the religious leaders of his day, and we’ll explore what it can mean for us today.

Series: Introducing Jesus
The human soul cries out for justice. It seems built into the fibre of our being. Stories of injustice around the world grip us and we cry out for justice to be served. But our concept of justice is often reduced to mere punishment and retribution, falling short of God’s righteous ideal. As we dive into Luke 1:41-55 with Pastor Robyn Elliott, we’ll glimpse God’s grander vision for humanity and the invitation to be part of it today.

We all have our own idea of what community looks like. What happens when our belief of what community should be doesn’t match the view others around us have?
