Women’s Luncheon

A team of gals are eagerly getting all the details ready for what promises to be a wonderful Spring Luncheon on Saturday, April 16th, from 10:30am – 1pm.  We will be treated to a fashion show from the “Great Finds” shop, a delicious catered lunch by Nella Cucina (Sharron Parks) & guest speaker, Tressa Lemky.

Tressa Lemky

Tressa is the creator of Modelling  Modesty & has a passion to see women reach their full potential, not just on the outside, but more importantly on the inside without compromising Godly standards.  Tressa’s ongoing career as a fashion model, former radio & television broadcaster, as well as a pageant winner, has provided her with the experience & platform to share not only her views but her faith in Jesus.

This is a perfect & non-threatening outreach opportunity, so plan to bring a friend, neighbour &/or coworker.  Tickets are $10 and are available until Sunday, April 10th in the West Foyer @ FGMB.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Blessed Assurance

It is with tears in my eyes that I write this post today.  My friend’s daughter, who was the same age as Avery, passed away yesterday.  I am mixed with emotions.  My heart hurts for them & yet it reminds me how lucky & blessed I am to have two healthy & beautiful children!!  I am sometimes scared to think of what I could handle if faced with certain situations.  However, instead of worrying about what that could be, today, I am thankful for where I’m at right now & what God has so richly blessed me with!

Take some time today to thank God for what He has done for you!  And to my grieving friends & family I am reminded of the beatitude we just heard preached in our sermon series at church: “God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4) Today, that verse has extra meaning & assurance.  I am thankful to have such a big God that He can be there for each one of us at every moment.

Jesus, You are Lord of All!!

Do you ever have a song that just speaks volumes to you?  This morning I want to share with you one whose lyrics are incredibly powerful to me!  I hope that they may be a source of encouragement to you as well!  (Note: The song title is “Stronger” by Hillsong.  Included in this video is also another song titled “This is Our God”.)

“But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”
Romans 5:8 (NLT)

“He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves.  Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.”
2 Corinthians 5:15 (NLT)

Hillsong – Stronger Lyrics

There is love that came for us
Humbled to a sinner’s cross
You broke my shame and sinfuless
You rose again victorious

Faithfulness none can deny
Through the storm and through the fire
There is truth that sets me free
Jesus Christ who lives in me

You are stronger, You are stronger
Sin is broken, You have saved me
It is written, Christ is risen
Jesus You are Lord of all

No beginning and no end
You’re my hope and my defence
You came to seek and save the lost
You paid it all upon the cross

So let your name be lifted higher
Be lifted higher, be lifted higher

You are stronger, You are stronger
Sin is broken, You have saved me
It is written, Christ is risen
Jesus You are Lord of all
