    2020-10-11 Reset - Part 4: From Grumbling to Gratitude, Trent Berstad

    12/10/2020 Duración: 33min

    We may not be able to control what going on in the world around us, but we can control what is going on inside of us. The Bible teaches us that thankfulness is a choice. And this choice has the potential to change what we see and how we experience what is happening in the world around us.

  • 2020-10-04 Reset - Part 3: From Uniformity to Unity, Matt Dyck

    2020-10-04 Reset - Part 3: From Uniformity to Unity, Matt Dyck

    05/10/2020 Duración: 30min

    Wouldn’t things be easier if everyone just had the same perspective and opinions as you? No disagreements or misunderstandings? We often put a lot of energy into convincing people to think like us or pushing back against others who don’t. In our particular culture, it seems the gap between different perspectives is getting larger and the the actions and reactions are getting more extreme. Two thousand years ago Jesus created a community, not from uniformity, but from something much powerful than that. Join us this week as we explore how people from different cultures, perspectives, and languages found something worth uniting over.

  • 2020-09-27 Reset - Part 2: From Fear to Faith, Matt Dyck

    2020-09-27 Reset - Part 2: From Fear to Faith, Matt Dyck

    29/09/2020 Duración: 46min

    We all see the world through a set of eyes. What we choose to see impacts the lives that we end up living. Faith and fear are words that describe our perspective and our behaviour. Are you living your best life? Maybe it's time to Reset and choose to live a life driven by faith instead of fear.

  • 2020-09-20 Reset - Part 1: From Good News to Bad News, Matt Dyck

    2020-09-20 Reset - Part 1: From Good News to Bad News, Matt Dyck

    22/09/2020 Duración: 34min

    Pessimism. Negativity. It’s understandable. It seems like 2020 can’t end soon enough. Wouldn’t you like to hit a Reset button? We may not be able to control what happens outside of us but we can choose what happens inside of us. How do you choose your normal in a time of abnormal? This week we will learn to focus on the Good News in a world of Bad News.

  • 2020-09-13 Vision Sunday: Penguins and Crabs, Matt Dyck

    2020-09-13 Vision Sunday: Penguins and Crabs, Matt Dyck

    13/09/2020 Duración: 44min

    In a time of polarization and strong opinions, how does the church move forward in unity and mission together? Tune in this week as Pastor Matt is going to talk about Penguins and Crabs and what we can learn from them to keep the main thing the main thing in a world that is prone to division.

  • 2020-09-06, Belonging Matters... On Purpose!, Paul Loewen

    2020-09-06, Belonging Matters... On Purpose!, Paul Loewen

    07/09/2020 Duración: 24min

    Belonging. It matters! There’s a good reason why the Bible calls the followers of Jesus to connect with one another and to do something about it. Find out what God’s purpose is for your church or small group. This week, Paul Loewen, our Alberta MB Conference Director, will share on a topic that he is passionate about. If you want to know why church matters, don’t miss this Sunday!

  • 2020-08-30 Mark - Part 26: Back to the Beginning, Matt Dyck

    2020-08-30 Mark - Part 26: Back to the Beginning, Matt Dyck

    30/08/2020 Duración: 31min

    26 weeks! That's how long we've been studying the book of Mark. That's exactly half a year. Our world feels very different now than what it did when we began. But Mark wrote this book for a church that needed to be reminded of the source of its hope. Tune in for our last week in Mark and be encouraged that no matter who you are, where you've been, or what you've done, Jesus invites you into a new beginning.

  • 2020-08-23 Mark - Part 25: The Reversal, Matt Dyck

    2020-08-23 Mark - Part 25: The Reversal, Matt Dyck

    23/08/2020 Duración: 35min

    One of the most dramatic and mysterious statements in the Bible is right before Jesus breathes his last breath and says, “My God, my God why have you forsaken me?” Isn’t Jesus God? What does this mean? What is going on? Join us this week as we explore the mystery of what is happening and what that means for you!

  • 2020-08-16 Mark - Part 24: I Am Barabbas, Matt Dyck

    2020-08-16 Mark - Part 24: I Am Barabbas, Matt Dyck

    16/08/2020 Duración: 36min

    We have been following Jesus’ journey to the cross. As we enter the climactic point in Mark’s Gospel, we have the story interrupted by a second Jesus. Not Jesus the Messiah, but Jesus Barabbas. In this interruption we see that Barabbas is also a story about us. A story about a costly exchange. A story about the release of of a guilty captive with a broken identity. The injustice endured by Jesus gives the opportunity for the forgiveness, freedom, and the chance to live up to his true name.

  • 2020-08-09 Mark - Part 23: Comfort in Denial, Colton Willms

    2020-08-09 Mark - Part 23: Comfort in Denial, Colton Willms

    10/08/2020 Duración: 39min

    When life doesn’t go the way you’ve planned, how do you respond? Do you feel the urge to fight, or to flee? To deny the truth and choose comfort over walking the difficult path? This week we will be looking at the disciples response to Jesus’ arrest in Mark 14:43-72 and how the response to flee gives us the invitation to return.

  • 2020-08-02 Mark - Part 22: Christ Modelled How to Process Trials, Kelvin Block

    2020-08-02 Mark - Part 22: Christ Modelled How to Process Trials, Kelvin Block

    02/08/2020 Duración: 35min

    This Sunday we will focus on Jesus in Gethsemane. We will be looking at Mark 14: 32-42 where Jesus is praying in the garden and honestly processing with his friends and with God the Father about going to the cross and dying for us. We will see how Jesus invited his close friends to walk with him, to support him and we will see Christ’s concern for them and his exhortation to ‘keep watch’ for him but also for themselves. We will see Christ being honest with God the Father and his deep trust in Him and how he then comes to a place of acceptance. Come and hear how Jesus processed his journey to the cross in the garden of Gethsemane and see what are some things we can learn from him that would be helpful for the next time we are experiencing a difficult situation.

  • 2020-07-26 Mark - Part 21: The Beauty of Wastefulness, Trent Berstad

    2020-07-26 Mark - Part 21: The Beauty of Wastefulness, Trent Berstad

    26/07/2020 Duración: 26min

    As Jesus followers we often think about what is right. We often think about what is good. But how often do we think about what is beautiful? In Mark 14 we see beauty is an essential part of being a disciple of Jesus. We find a woman who does not fit the box of religious niceties but blesses Jesus with a wasteful act of beauty.

  • 2020-07-19 Mark - Pt 20: The End of the World?, Matt Dyck

    2020-07-19 Mark - Pt 20: The End of the World?, Matt Dyck

    19/07/2020 Duración: 40min

    Does it ever feel like this is the end of the world as we know it? Have you ever heard well-meaning Christians talk about the current “signs”, the return of Jesus, and the impending doom of the world? This week we’re going to look at Mark 13 and why COVID and the many other struggles in our world are not signs of Jesus’ return.

  • 2020-07-12 Mark - Part 19: Death and Taxes, Matt Dyck

    2020-07-12 Mark - Part 19: Death and Taxes, Matt Dyck

    12/07/2020 Duración: 34min

    It's been said that nothing in this world is certain except death and taxes. Even Jesus couldn't avoid a confrontation with these realities. In Mark 12, Jesus continues on the journey towards his crucifixion and has to respond to a question about taxes. We will explore this Sunday how he turns this into an opportunity to talk about our identity as humans and our mission.

  • 2020-07-05 Mark - Part 18: Den of Robbers, Matt Dyck

    2020-07-05 Mark - Part 18: Den of Robbers, Matt Dyck

    05/07/2020 Duración: 36min

    Jesus comes into Jerusalem on a donkey and then goes and disrupts the entire religious system. He calls out the religious leaders and tells them that the system has become a den of robbers instead of a house of prayer. That’s enough to get him killed! What does he mean by that and how does it relate to us 2000 years later? Tune in this Sunday to find out.

  • 2020-06-28 Mark - Part 17: Down is the New Up, Matt Dyck

    2020-06-28 Mark - Part 17: Down is the New Up, Matt Dyck

    28/06/2020 Duración: 30min

    We live in a world that loves success, status, and honour. But sometimes as we pursue these things we are moving away from what is honoured in the Kingdom of God. This Sunday a blind guy named Bartimaeus will teach us what success really looks like.

  • 2020-06-21 Mark - Part 16: Entering the Kingdom, Matt Dyck

    2020-06-21 Mark - Part 16: Entering the Kingdom, Matt Dyck

    21/06/2020 Duración: 41min

    Jesus has a certain affinity for kids. And it’s not just because they’re cute. It’s because they are most ready to receive the gifts that God wants to give them. Why is that? Join us this Sunday to find out what children have to teach us about entering the Kingdom of God and what a rich guy has to teach us about missing out on the Kingdom.

  • 2020-06-14 Vision 2020: Obstacle or Opportunity?, Matt Dyck

    2020-06-14 Vision 2020: Obstacle or Opportunity?, Matt Dyck

    14/06/2020 Duración: 30min

    This week Pastor Matt takes a one-week break from our Mark series to speak specifically about vision. Since Alberta opened Phase 2, there are many questions about what this could mean for SunWest. Join in this Sunday to hear why Kodak and Instagram have something to teach us, and why trying to go back to the way things were may forfeit the very opportunity we have before us.

  • 2020-06-07 Mark - Part 15: Rumblings of Revival, Matt Dyck

    2020-06-07 Mark - Part 15: Rumblings of Revival, Matt Dyck

    07/06/2020 Duración: 37min

    We are experiencing the domino effects of so many things in our world that have changed in a short amount of time. In Mark 9 we encounter a desperate father who gives us a picture of someone with honest faith in the midst of challenge. We also find that Jesus responds as someone of compassion, prayer, and action. In the midst of crisis, with a posture of faith, and a life of prayer, we have the rumblings of revival.

  • 2020-05-31 Mark - Part 14: From the Mountain to the Valley, Matt Dyck

    2020-05-31 Mark - Part 14: From the Mountain to the Valley, Matt Dyck

    31/05/2020 Duración: 32min

    Have you ever had a mountain top experience that has changed your perspective and transformed you? It's human nature that we would want to live in that type of place forever. However, in Mark 9 we learn that the mountain top experience prepares us for the descent into the valley. Jesus is going down the mountain, will we have enough courage to follow him?
