“My Little Pink Pill: Reflections on Mental Health”

February 4, 2018 – Rod Wilson

For February, we are starting a new venture at CAP that we are calling ‘Fear and Anxiety February @ CapChurch.’ Our intent is to spend the four Sundays on fear and anxiety so people are educated, encouraged, and equipped.  Come yourself and invite friends and family.
This morning’s message will encourage us all to recognize that struggles with mental health are part of the human condition.   As we struggle we can experience the powerful message in Psalm 139 that we are known by God.

Sermon Handout: My Little Pink Pill, Reflections on Mental Health

“What’s The Plan?”

January 28, 2018 – Bruce Main

We welcome Bruce Main, founder of Urban Promise, a ministry created in response to the problems of inter-generational poverty and the incarceration of youth in Camden, New Jersey. Its mission is to equip children and young adults with the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, personal growth and success. Founded in 1988 by Bruce and his wife Pamela in the basement of an unused Baptist church, Urban Promise began with just one adult staff, 12 college-aged volunteers, and a small budget. Today, the organization has grown significantly working internationally in 8 different US cities, in Toronto, and in countries such as Malawi, Uganda, Honduras, Liberia and the Dominican Republic.

Moving Into The Neighbourhood

January 21, 2018 – Jamie Munday

We are taking a season to be attentive to God’s faithful presence, asking how we, as a community, might join with Him in bringing shalom to the places we inhabit. Today we are asking the question, what is our neighbourhood? (Jn1:14) The World has changed to the degree that “neighbours” living in close proximity generally don’t have the same level of connectedness or inter-dependance they once did. Life in the neighborhood – whatever form it might take –  is the context where “The Word becomes flesh” through the lives of Christians living in community. In order to be “light and life” in the places we inhabit we must find ways to root deeply into the relationships and spaces where God has us.

Becoming Flesh and Blood

January 14, 2018 – Jamie Munday

In John 1:14 God’s spoken Word appears in a Bethlehem cowshed in the form of a mortal body. “The Word made flesh.” As we consider our own mission, what must we learn from this altogether extraordinary manner of communication? How is the good news made relevant – fleshed out – in the down-to-Earth, day-to-day of our lives?
While the philosophers of John’s time sought to know truth through the intellect, the truth had come in bodily form and was knowable only in Jesus. The Church’s witness of this truth is not just to tell the story, but to live as salt and light – a visible expression of the good news.

Mission Status

January 7, 2018 – Jamie Munday

Without mission – a sense of purpose and pursuit beyond ourselves – we are lost. But what does it mean to be a Church on Mission? Should we send more missionaries, more money, more shoe boxes? As we have been listening to God in this season of our Church’s life, we sense a call to be attentive, working our sails to capture the wind of God’s Spirit. So we must be attentive to God – as he is already present, and at work in the places we inhabit. And we must be also be attentive to who we are –  as God takes our raw material and fashions it into something useful for his Kingdom.

God With Us: Herod’s “No”

December 17, 2017 – Kim Pierrot

It’s unexpected, it’s subversive, it’s astonishing. Our all-powerful, all-knowing God chooses to inaugurate His kingdom by coming down from heaven to dwell among us in the finiteness and frailty of human flesh. In the words of Dan Allender, “(Jesus’) arrival is an invasion, not a merry Christmas.” As Jesus “invades” the lives of familiar characters in the Christmas story, we see how unsettling and how revolutionary God-With-Us actually is. Even today, Jesus invites us to be transformed and mobilized by the unexpectedly good news of God-With-Us.
