Reflections on 2006 The end of each year provides a natural opportunity to reflect on the experiences, the lessons learned, and the ways in which God has demonstrated His faithfulness over the past twelve months. It's also an excellent opportunity to think about our hope, our dreams, and our goals for the future. "Reflections On 2006", will be the theme of this Sunday mornings' gatherings as together we remember God's faithfulness and renew our hope in His work in our lives

He Will Be Called "Mighty God" In a world that's consumed with upward mobility and personal advancement, Jesus' words and his example give us a completely different perspective on living. His kingdom is not based in political power nor brute force. In Jesus, Mighty God of the universe humbly took on human skin, a helpless little baby. And the world has never been the same. Our Christmas series, "He Will Be Called...", continues this weekend with, "Mighty God", a look at how the power and strength of God is released in our lives when we simply learn to give up control.

He Will Be Called "Wonderful, Counselor" At the birth of every baby one of the first questions asked is, "What's his name?" or, "What did you name her?"

"Wonderful Counselor", this Sunday's message begins our Christmas series, "He Will Be Called..." with a look at the different names attributed to Jesus and how each can be fulfilled and experienced in our lives today.

Lord of Heaven and Earth At Northgate Christian Fellowship, we do our best to teach the Godly principles found in the bible in applicable and relevant ways. But there are those times when we read something in the bible, where it becomes difficult to say: "This is what this means and this is what you should do." This is especially true when we simply ponder the full essence of who God is. That is what we will do this weekend in the message: "Lord of Heaven and Earth." Be ready, because there's plenty in such pondering that will challenge your life for the good.

Say Grace If you're not in the habit of doing this, you've probably been at a meal where it has been done. Before those who've gathered begin to eat, someone offers to "Say Grace". It's a time where everyone stops what they're doing and listens to the person praying thank God for the food that all will enjoy. As we prepare to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, most of us pause and reflect on the good things we have. This week's message "Say Grace" challenges us to ponder what life would be like without all God has given to us and how humbly dependent we are on his provision.

Rediscovering Servanthood There are few things more gratifying than knowing that you've made a difference. People will often give up their own comfort and make sacrifices of their time and energy if they know that it is going to tangibly help someone else. The great surprise is, that in bettering others we also become better. "Rediscovering Servanthood", this Sunday's message continues our series of studies, "Rediscovering Church" with a look at the positive impact generosity and compassion can have in the lives of others and in ourselves.

Rediscovering Church What comes to mind when you hear the word "church"? The answers are probably as different as our own, personal experience. As a whole, the church has been involved in a lot of good in this world and, unfortunately, has also made its share of mistakes. Because the church is made up of people it will always be subject to human weakness but, by the power of God, it also holds onto the hope of transformation. "Rediscovering Church", this Sunday's message will look at the core values that define the church at it's best.

Opening Doors Opportunities are sometimes described as "open doors". If someone is easily accessible they're said to have an "open door policy". But doors also carry a bit of risk. We're never really sure what lies on the other side of the door. That's where faith comes in. "Opening Doors", this weekend's message, will look at the accessibility, the opportunities and the steps of faith that are needed to enter into the life God has offered us.
