      Lessons from Heart Lake Baptist Church

      August 28, 2019

      Lessons from Heart Lake Baptist Church !!  The past 3+ years have been incredible.  This church has taught us so much and I am thankful that the Lord has allowed us to be here.  I never thought I would end my pastoral ministry here in Ontario!  Having pastored all my life on the East Coast, I never saw this one coming. ...

      God's Goodness

      July 4, 2019

      Our guest speaker at this year’s assembly (our Baptist convention) which met June 13-15, was Rev. Dr. Soong-Chan Rah. He focused on the connection between lament and justice.
