hope is alive | 2020 Online
We are living in one of the most challenging times in our history. Fear and anxiety are very real these days. This makes the good news of the gospel even more relevant and significant than ever before. The EASTER story reminds us that Christ is Risen and HOPE is ALIVE!
#NBUCchurch | Hope is Alive: Make Room for the New - May 24, 2020 - Katrina & Jamie HoltomAre you ready for something new? The book of Revelation actually has a beautiful scripture that speaks directly to our current experience - our current reality and the work that God is doing and the beautiful things He is creating.
Scripture: Revelation 21:1-5
1) When the COVID 19 isolation time started did you think it would still be the way it is today? What is your reaction to how long this has been going on?
2) Have you had much experience with the book of Revelation? What has your reaction been if you have? Where would you recommend people start reading the bible for the first time?
3) What do you think about the promise that God is birthing something new out of this COVID 19 time – what does that look like for you? How is God rising up in that?
4) This passage offers the idea that God is with us beyond any walls or location but everywhere. What do you think about that? Where have you seen that happening?
5) Who has inspired you during these times when you think about HOPE being alive? Why?
NBUC is where I found my faith and I learned to give and receive the grace of God. This is where, every day, I learn to be a better parent, wife, and friend. My daughter and husband worship with me weekly, and we are growing in Christ, together as a family!Andrea
Since coming to NBUC, God has brought into my life a community of support and acceptance through the kindness and wisdom of the church parishioners and staff. I’ve been inspired and touched by the experience and it’s truly begun a journey of growth in faith in my life.Trevor
God is always reminding me I am "enough", that I am a good person, and that God is always with me. NBUC has taught me more about prayer and the power of prayer - reminding me that we are here to serve and not be served.Catherine
Reviving The Church, Rewiring The Culture
We want to seek God’s presence. We will pray for what God puts on our heart. We will give thanks for all God has done and is doing. Prayers for our City and its leaders, our churches and leaders/programs, NBUC initiatives, people that have submitted prayer requests, events happening in our community. Including prayers of thanksgiving to God.
We invite and encourage anyone and everyone that wants to pray. We hope to connect with other churches and community groups within Brampton to participate together with us. Our goal is to have at least 168 people to each take 1 hour in the week to dedicate to prayer but will celebrate where God takes us.
Explore life, faith &
Alpha is an 11 week course that creates a space where people come and discuss life’s big questions in a friendly, open and informal environment.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith.
Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a video/talk and good conversation.
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.
The video talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Each talk is around thirty minutes long and given as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
One of the most important parts of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and discuss in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
