Worship Gathering: Run With The Horses - Failure

-Service with be held at the new Church facility-

-Bring lawn chairs-

Jeremiah 20:1-6

There was a very popular preacher in Jerusalem.

People hung on his every word.

He made them feel like everything was going to be ok.

He was popular.

He was successful. 

But he was wrong.

His name, Pashur.

This Sunday, at the new facility, we will look at 'success' of Pasur and the 'failure' of Jeremiah.

Worship Gathering: Guest Ingrid Koss

Ingrid has always loved reading, watching or telling stories. She believes that stories are powerful in getting to the heart of things. After many years of freelancing as a writer and playwright, Ingrid joined Square One as a staff writer in 2016. 

She believes that words have personalities. Some need to be dragged into the open more often. Some long to be used less predictably. And others are worth saying just for the sound and feel of them.  

Ingrid sees evidence of God’s love for us all around. All we have to do is take the time to notice. Each wonderful or difficult thing that happens is an opportunity to learn something new and to ask, “How can I honor God in this situation?” 

A motto for life: live the way you will wish tomorrow you had done today. A favourite vacation memory is taking a cooking class in Tuscany. Some things Ingrid can’t resist – water, sunshine and chocolate. 

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing.

Worship Gathering: Run With The Horses - I'm Only ...

Jeremiah 1, 

We have all said it at one time or another: "I am too young," "I am too old," " I am only a housewife," "I'm only a general labourer." But have we gone far enough in our self assessment? Are we as smart as Steve Jobs? As beautiful as Sofia Vergara; rich as Warren Buffett? Tough questions, but if we want to play the game of all the things we aren't we might as well get low.

Unsupervised children room available throughout the service. Children programs recommence in the Fall.

Worship Gathering: Special Guest

Mark 14:32-52

This morning we continue to celebrate the empty tomb and the ramifications it has for who we are. Charles Peronto of Canadian Mennonite Unversity will be joining us as our special guest. 

Charlie was raised by wolves in the forests of southern Wisconsin. When he is not roaming the woods, traveling, or pretending to be a chef Charlie works as the Residence Director at CMU. He loves working with students and creating a safe home for them during the school year. Charlie works closely with the SRA and RA's to create a welcoming environment for all students.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing.

Worship Gathering: Acts One - Stephen Part 2

Acts One - Stephen Part 2

Acts 6:8-8:3

Even though Stephen is remembered as "the first martyr" the truth is, many had been "martyrs" during the last few centuries of Jewish history before the time of Jesus. The extraordinary thing is that Stephen's final words are so different from those of his ancestors.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing as we reflect on the fact that the first Christian martyr called down blessing and forgiveness on his torturers and executioners.

Worship Gathering: Acts One - Causality

Acts One - Causality

Acts 5:34-42

Anyone who has taken an intro to psych or a statistics class has heard the old adage, "correlation does not imply causation.“ Just because two trends seem to fluctuate in tandem, this rule posits, that doesn’t prove that they are meaningfully related to one another. While that sounds nice enough on paper, it’s easy to forget when provocative headlines and narratives woo us with a scenario we wish to be true or false.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing as we reflect on life following after God through the good times and the bad.

Worship Gathering: Navigating Challenges -- Heritage and Hope -- with a Tricycle

Guest: Dr. Jon Isaak (Director, Centre For MB Studies)

On top of being one of Justin's favorite professors, Jon provides leadership to the work of the Centre for Mennonite Brethren Studies which involves preserving Mennonite Brethren congregational and conference records, including theological writings.

Jon also published New Testament Theology: Extending The Table

Romans 14.1-12

Jon has found the tricycle method of faith (borrowed from Richard Rohr) to be helpful when navigating pressing social challenges, like the theological questions that occupy our attention, or like the social and environmental challenges we face in our globalized and digital world, or the tension between affirming Mennonite heritage and longing for hope to enliven the church in new ways. 

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing.

Worship Gathering: Acts One - A Whole New Reality

Acts One - A Whole New Reality

Acts 5:12-16

Much of this text is hard to fathom, there is always a strange unknown quality about God's healing. What is evident from this text is that people were excited about the establishment of a new reality in a dangerous place: the power of the living God becoming concrete, definite, undeniable, not simply a matter of a few people telling a very strange story.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing as we remember that it is when the church, through prayer and wisdom, acts with decisive power in the real world -- to build and run a successful school, or medical clinic; to free slaves or remit debts; to establish a housing project -- that people will take the message of Jesus seriously.

Worship Gathering: Acts One - Lord's Name In Vain

Acts One - Lord's Name in Vain

Acts 5:1-11

We can not have a conversation about the Lord's name (last week) without talking about using the Lord's Name in Vain (this week).

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing as we face the reality that those who serve under the Lord's name are not permitted to abuse the holiness of God by attempting to put a leash on God, then drag God into our projects, vanity, crusades, and cruelties.

Worship Gathering: Acts One - An Odd Community

Acts One - An Odd Community

Acts 2:42-47

Whenever we feel -- as individuals or as a community -- stagnant, unattractive, and humdrum it's time to read Acts 2:42-47 again, get down on our knees, and ask what isn't happening that should be happening.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing as we marvel at this beauty called The Body Of Christ.

Acts One - Right Side of History

Acts 1:15-26; Luke 22:54-62

Two people stood on the wrong side of history.

One turned, the other didn't.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing as we discuss the problem of the Church's history and look for signs of supremacy or domination in our daily life.

Acts One - Icebergs, Child Development, and Mountain Climbing

Acts 1:1-8; Ephesians 4:1-16

What sunk the Titanic? How do children develop? What is the best way to get up Mount Kilimanjaro? What does this all have to do with you, me, and us?

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing as we discuss the substance of the Church then and now.

Worship Gathering: Casting Lots with Scottish Widows

Casting Lots with Scottish Widows

Acts 1:12-26

Sometime around 40-50 A.D.E. a group of Jesus followers needed to replace one of their Apostles. In 1744, two Presbyterian clergymen in Scotland, Alexander Webster and Robert Wallace, wanted to set up a life-insurance fund. What do the two stories have in common? The outcomes were not going to happen on their own.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, and sharing as we discuss taking responsibility for our futures.

Children's programs will begin again the fall.

Worship Gathering: Preacher 4

Preacher: 4

Justin Majeau

1 Kings 3:3-14

Assuming that King Solomon is the preacher characterized in the text of Ecclesiastes, when we read this enigmatic text we are, at least ostensibly, reading the words of one of Israel’s most knowledgeable kings. Yet according to Ecclesiastes 1:18, it would seem that Solomon’s greatest blessing also became his greatest burden.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, communion, and sharing as we discuss the problem of knowledge and self-discovery.

Worship Gathering: Simonhouse Bible Camp

This Sunday morning, S.C.C. is fortunate to have Darrell Janzen of Simonhouse Bible Camp joining with us. 

Simonhouse Bible Camp strives to provide a safe, caring environment where all kids can come and experience new activities, have lots of fun, and perhaps forget even just for awhile, some of the burdens they carry on their small shoulders.  Darrell Janzen and his team work hard to remain one of the lowest cost camps in Manitoba and provide a high-quality program.  The camp is Accredited with the Manitoba Camping Association, meeting or exceeding their high standards for camps. Simon House’s quality Christian camping programs emphasize values that strengthen individuals and families. 

Join us this Sunday morning at the Gordon Howard Centre as we join together to sing and study.

Worship Gathering: Preacher 3

Preacher: 3

Justin Majeau

Matthew 25:31-46

Have you heard the saying; “Christianity isn’t a religion it is a relationship”? How about this one; “The Church is the hands and feet of God”? Helpful sayings for some. But what if the idea of relationships frighten you? What if the idea of reducing an infinite God into a manageable, “relatable” concept offends your senses? What if those “hands and feet” abused you? Then what do you do?

This Sunday through the special use of a “generic” descriptor of God found throughout the book of Ecclesiastes we will see that maybe God if far more infinite than we have been lead to believe but also even more immanent than we could ever imagine.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, communion, and sharing as we discuss the realities of our rich and diverse community.

Preacher: 2

Justin Majeau

Ecclesiastes 1, Luke 12:22-32

Are you stressed, worried, overworked? Are you trying to work yourself to a place of contentment? If so, how is that working for you?

Life is a precious — all be it an evaporating — gift.

This Sunday, via the book of Ecclesiastes, we will celebrate that truth.

Join us this Sunday morning as we look at themes of meaning, significance, and the beauty of life through singing, reflection, and study.

Children's programs provided during the service.

Worship Gathering: Preacher 1

Preacher: 1

Justin Majeau

Ecclesiastes 1, Zechariah 8:16-17, John 8:31-36

In Shakespeare’s King Lear, in the last act, the good and the bad, the wise and the fool, the weak and the strong, all die alike and as Edgar comes to pull the curtain down what he says is this:

“The weight of this sad time we must obey

Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.”

The preacher in Ecclesiastes needed no such advice, for he spoke exactly what he felt and not what others expected him to say and for that in our coming series we can all breathe a sigh of relief.

Join us this Sunday morning for a time of worship, singing, communion, and sharing as we discuss the joy found in freedom and honesty.
