Hope Eternal – Get Dressed from the Inside Out: Dave Groenenboom

Hope Eternal - Get Dressed from the Inside Out: Dave Groenenboom

Peter seems to talk down jewellery and beauty. Judging by the way we live, it appears we’re not listening. Is this a message that should be listened to? And how does that relate to what Peter says about submission? How will this help us survive in a world that already mistrusts much of what the […]

Rebuilding the Foundations – From Impossible to Extraordinary: Dave Groenenboom

Rebuilding the Foundations - From Impossible to Extraordinary: Dave Groenenboom

 “I can’t do this…” are words you’ve probably said before. It’s even possible that as we have all sat under the challenge of the last four weeks those words may have formed in our minds then, too. The people of Israel must have breathed those words when they saw a flooded Jordan River. What changed […]

Rebuild the Foundations – The Grace of Giving: Dave Groenenboom

Rebuild the Foundations - The Grace of Giving: Dave Groenenboom

Coming Sunday’s message about giving and tithing is probably one of the more important messages in this series. Important because it contains teaching that challenges everything we think about giving. During the months of May we’re focussing on how God’s faithfulness leads us to giving which is open hearted and open handed. It’s important that […]

Rebuild the Foundations – Dave Groenenboom

Rebuild the Foundations - Dave Groenenboom

As Nehemiah surveys the broken walls of Jerusalem, his is filled with grief. Jerusalem is at risk, and the people of God face extinction. How did it come to this? More importantly, how will Nehemiah react? This powerful story is relevant to our own financial situation, and Nehemiah’s response shows us how to act when […]

God & Politics – Dave Groenenboom

God & Politics - Dave Groenenboom

God’s word calls us to submit to governing authorities – but what does that mean when the push of following God comes face to face with the shove of bad government? What are our obligations? How do we honour God as citizens when government policy dishonours God? Come Sunday, we’ll open up this hot potato, […]

Living the good life – Dave Groenenboom

Living the good life - Dave Groenenboom

There’s plenty of reason to think our society is becoming less tolerant of Christianity and the Church. This can worry us, frustrate us, and sometimes anger us. What can we do about that? How do we respond? Peter says the answer is living ‘the good life’ – but what does that mean?

Take Heart: I have Overcome the World – Dave Groenenboom

Take Heart: I have Overcome the World - Dave Groenenboom

This Sunday I want to ask what it means that Jesus has overcome the world when – right then – it appeared the world was about to overcome Him. What does it mean for us, that our Lord has overcome the world? What difference does it make to our mission and ministry? What difference does/should […]

Living Waters – Dave Groenenboom

Living Waters - Dave Groenenboom

Jesus’ interaction with the woman at the well challenges us at a number of levels. One of those is dryness and the significance of water. And us? Is there an unspoken inner thirst? A soul dryness which our culture is expert at masking? And how does all of that speak in a very special day […]

Hope Eternal: New People, New Purpose – Dave Groenenboom

Hope Eternal: New People, New Purpose - Dave Groenenboom

While discussions about the role and purpose of the church are quite common, absolutely nothing comes close to Peter’s words in 1 Peter 2:9-10. What Peter says about who we are in Christ, and how that impacts on our mission and ministry is nothing short of amazing. The teaching of this passage is possibly one […]

Hope Eternal: A New Temple – Dave Groenenboom

Hope Eternal: A New Temple - Dave Groenenboom

Stories about Christians being mocked and the Gospel being rejected seem to be more common these days. It seems that our society is becoming tolerant of everything except Christianity. Is this a new phenomenon? How should we respond? What can we do?
