Current Sermon Series MAY 5-JUNE 30:  IT BEGINS WITH US…Healthy Church (A Letter to Titus)

Imagine a church where people are introduced to Jesus, find a place to belong and their needs are met… imagine  what God can do with a healthy church within the reach of every Canadian…   As we study the book of Titus we find the makings of a healthy church… and where we realize that … it all begins with us and as we do, we will help our community experience Christ. 

Sermon Series (throughout 2023 to APR 2024):  ENTRUSTED…Our Part In God’s Plan

We have been entrusted with the city of Barrie to help our community experience Christ.  How do we do this?  The book of Ephesians was written to a group of people who were asking the same question.  Join us as we explore these principles for living out the Christian life, in our family, neighbourhood and the world we live in.

Lenten Sermon Series… BEHOLD HIM – The Man Who Changed The World

During these 40 days of Lent, we pause to behold Jesus; to look upon He who changed the world.  Let our hearts be captivated by the one who is the light of the world, the resurrection and the life.  May we behold Jesus, the lamb of God, who came to take away the sin of the world.

Sermon Series SEPT 17-OCT 22:  TRUE NORTH – Heading in the right direction

The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you (Psalm 32:8). Our five Core Values help direct us as we work together to be God’s family knowing, growing and serving in the love of Christ and helping our community Christ.


Jonah – God’s prophet – missed out on the joy of experiencing God’s mercy and mission in an unexpected place to an undeserving people because of the unforgiveness, bitterness and malice he had towards them. Unresolved hurt can cause us to miss out on God’s great plans. Join us as we dive deep into Jonah’s story and uncover God’s heart of love and mercy in the midst of Jonah’s rebellion.


The first words that Jesus spoke from the grave have tremendous power for those who listen.  They bring identity, purpose, strength and direction.

2022 – Sermon Series JUNE 26-AUG 28:  GOD IS… answering tough questions about God

“What we believe about God affects how we live, how we view ourselves and others, and even how we respond to trials we face in life. Our beliefs about God also affect our relationship with Him. It’s important to have a healthy view of God—one that is based not on our feelings or opinion but on the truth of His Word.” [Gateway Church]

Sermon Series MAY 1-JUNE 19:  PROTECT YOUR IDENTITY – Ephesians 6

Lenten Sermon Series MAR 6-APR 24:  DARE TO ENGAGE:  JESUS (Identity: 7 Steps to Fulfillment)

Self-help programs abound, convincing us that we have what we need to be a better “you”. The problem is, when we are the source of fulfillment, there will always be brokenness and imperfection BUT when we turn to Jesus, He alone is everything we need to experience the fullness of identity.

Sermon Series JAN 16-FEB 27:  DARE TO EXPLORE – Ephesians 1 (Identity: Received not Achieved)

Uncertainty. Unpredictability and Anxiety are on the rise as it seems like every time you turn around something has changed.

This series of messages from Ephesians 1 will bring stability, hope and peace to your ruffled spirit!

Advent Sermon Series NOV 28-DEC 24:  GHOSTS of Christmas

For many, the most wonderful time of the year isn’t so wonderful.  Many of us are haunted by the Ghosts of Christmas: past hurts, expectations, and more – these memories and feelings that we carry with us from year to year often prevent us from experiencing the joy of the season!

But what if this year could be different?  Join us as we invite God to heal the Ghosts of Christmas.

The way of peace.  The way of Jesus
2 Corinthians 5:11-21

Sermon Series APR 11-MAY 30:  The next chapter… ACTS: The Story Continues

The Book of Acts is the story of the Church.  Not a building… but the story of a people, empowered by The Holy Spirit, saved by faith in Christ and restored to relationship with the God of creation who loves and created each of them.  It’s a story of persecution and trials, of grief and loss, of victory and power, encouragement and joy!  It’s the story of God’s unstoppable love moving through people across borders and cultures and time changing the lives of everyone who would believe!

Sermon Series JAN 17-APR 4:  “WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?” … Testimonies from the Gospel of Luke

Follow Jesus  |   Jan 19  –  Mar 8, 2020

What does it mean to be a Christian?  FOLLOW JESUS.
The teachings of Christ are so remarkable that when people follow Him, their lives are transformed.  They live life more fully.  They connect with God in real and meaningful ways.  Relationships are restored when they learn how to love others deeply and authentically and peace becomes the norm.
The simple answer is:  Follow Jesus – True Teaching. True Living. True Loving.

Jan 12Healing Service - "The Master Key" ...Forgiveness

James 5:13-15 - Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

LOVE DOES   |  Mar 3 – Apr 28, 2019

This is a series about God’s love… and the most amazing thing about that love is that it’s not just a bunch of rules or stuff we have to agree with. God’s love is different. It changes things. It’s active. It works. It risks. God’s love … DOES.
This isn’t just another sermon series in learning about the Love of God – this is an experiment in doing the love of God. Based on Bob Goff’s Book, “Love Does.”

GALATIANS – “Good News”  |  Jan 20 – Feb 24, 2019

If someone asked you to explain the gospel, what would you say? What is the good news of the Christian faith? Writing to the Galatians, Paul made it clear how easily we can be tempted to turn toward fraudulent gospels, especially those that teach we can earn God’s love through our works. Though they may have the appearance of truth, they are lifeless and leave us empty in the end. True freedom is found in surrender, not self-dependence, because our gospel is not one based on our works, but faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
