Message Three: Enabling Ministry

Without the generosity of others, we would not be able to hold Sunday services, have a permanent presence in this community, have a place to gather for prayer and fellowship, to share meals with one another, provide weekly programs. This sermon explores how we can live in light of other people’s generosity and in light of God’s generosity towards us.

Message Four: Honouring God
