Message - A Healing Community - Scripture Reading: Matthew 9:9-12; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

Questions for Reflection

  • How does Jesus describe his ministry in Matthew 9:12? Why was this a priority for him?
  • How would you describe a safe place where you could meaningfully explore who you are with confidence, connect with others who have the same questions, doubts, hurts and know that you are still loved by God and accepted by others? Would you call this "church"?

Message - A Welcoming Community - Scripture Reading: Philemon 1:1-22

Questions for Reflection:

  • The community of believers is intended to be a place of healing, forgiveness and welcome. Paul urges Philemon and his church to restore to their membership a runaway slave, Onesimus. What does Paul hope to accomplish by writing this letter?
  • As a congregation is Glenbrook a welcoming community? Maybe that depends on each one of us. Pray that God will help us to make others feel included within our community of faith

Come To The Mountain of the Lord: Becoming Beatitude People - Scripture: Matthew 5:1-12

Questions for Reflection:

1. What word or phrase would you suggest to translate "blessed" in today's culture? What is surprising about Jesus' understanding of who is "blessed"?

2. The Beatitudes are not a check list of things we need to do in order to gain God's approval. They are in fact characteristics of those who are already in relationship with Jesus. However we need to be reminded from time to time that there are areas in our life that we need to ask Christ to transform us into who He wants us to be. What beatitude(s) can yu ask God to infuse you with his grace? 

Father, thank you that I am blessed and that I am your child. Today I ask that your ____________________ (generosity, peace, comfort, humility, mercy, vision, justice, courage) become a deeper reality in my life. Thank you that you will do what you say. Amen

Choose Your Own Adventure Summer Camp

At this summer's camp we will talk about how each child attending is the main character in the adventure and story of their own lives. We will look at a new bible story every day where the main characters made choices that either went well or not so well for them.

As a take away each bible story, treasure verse, craft, object lesson, and game along with all the fun with new and old friends will lead to knowledge that a relationship with God will help us make choices that God wants us to make. 

The reward is that we can learn how to make these choices that lead to pleasing actions and the best outcome for our lives in relationship with God.

The Prodigal Sower - Scripture Readings: Isaiah 55:10-13; Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

Questions to Ponder: 

1) Is anything holding you back from being generous toward others?

2) Do you fully believe that God is capable of providing for all your needs?  If not, pray to ask for that conviction to take root in your life.

3)  Do you stretch yourself out of your comfort zone to show God's love, compassion and Good News with others?  Remember, God doesn't expect you to produce the results (which is His job), only to take action!

Ideas to Ponder

Who do you relate to? Do you feel like the people of Israel, busy, distracted, and drifting. Do you feel like the prophets of Baal, looking for solutions in all the wrong places? Do you feel like Elijah, strong today and struggling tomorrow? Wherever we are, God loves us and wants to restore us.

Joint Service with Glenbrook and St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Churches

The whole congregation is invited on a visit to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian in Streetsville at 295 Queen Street.  Both congregations have been hearing about the Reluctant Prophet Jonah through the recent sermons by Pastor Pye Chew and Pastor Ian.  To mark the end of this joint sermon series the 2 churches will worship together in Streetsville and have a potluck sandwich lunch afterwards.

Please see the Potluck Lunch Sign Up.  We need enough sandwiches, desserts, veggie trays and fruit trays to feed our own congregation.  The Streetsville congregation will look after all of the drinks for us.

Also see the Car Pool Sign-up in our lobby this Sunday if you wish to share a ride that morning.  We could meet in the Glenbrook parking lot at 10:00 and then travel to St. Andrew’s for the 10:30 service.

There is an elevator closest to the back entrance of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian just off the back parking area to make getting to the sanctuary easier.

This should be a fun fieldtrip and rewarding time of sharing so please join us!
