Unlikely Heros: Living Among Idols ("superheroes")

In an age of superheroes it’s easy to think that to be one you have to have super-human powers. We often think the same about every day heroes, like those who rush into burning buildings, step into the line of fire, and otherwise put themselves in harms way for the benefit of others. We think they have something we don’t. Maybe. Maybe not?

How can we be an unlikely, everyday or ordinary hero? Is there something we can do to prepare ourselves?

On most Sundays of July and August, we’ll journey through the book of Judges, discovering very real heroes. Heroes that are frail, broken, unexpected and unlikely, yet also chosen, anointed, full of grace and strength…all because of God’s presence in them.

YOU are invited to join us this Sunday and all! We look forward to meeting and fellowshipping with you.

Join us at 10:00 am for coffee and tea and a home made bite to enjoy with fellowship before service downstairs.

Worship starts upstairs at 10:30 am. Come as you are!

We look forward to worshipping with you this Sunday. You are invited!

We think they have something we don’t. Maybe. Maybe not?

How can we be an unlikely, everyday or ordinary hero? Is there something we can do to prepare ourselves?

While superhero movies are entertaining escapism, there aren't any real super men and women flying around with extraordinary powers, nor teams of them jumping from nation to nation, planet to planet, nor from one reality to another.

On most Sundays of July and August, we’ll journey through the book of Judges, discovering very real heroes. Heroes that are frail, broken, unexpected and unlikely, yet also chosen, anointed, full of grace and strength…all because of God’s presence in them.

  • YOU can build a life ready to be a hero, too. Join us for this series from Judges with material from Tim Keller, Ken Shigematsu and more: How to build a life of extra-ordinary faith.

YOU are invited to join us this Sunday and all! We look forward to meeting and fellowshipping with you.

Teen Challenge Ontario Women's Ministry Team

Real heroes do exist, like the women of Teen Challenge who’ll be sharing with us Sunday, June 30th. We invite you to hear their stories of extraordinary strength and weakness, faith and failures, grace and gratefulness. These are stories of the God difference…the difference God makes when we seek Him in our lives. You will be blessed. Come ready, too, to bless these women and this vital ministry in Ontario today.

Join us for worship at 10:30 and come early at 10am too, for fellowship, coffee and snacks.

Why is His Resurrection A Big Deal for You?
Apr

Why is His Resurrection A Big Deal for You?

It was a joyous occasion. A beautiful sunny day. People were shouting and waving palm branches. Children were overcome with joy as their parents and other adults left their work and responsibilities to join in the festive atmosphere. Dust was in the air from so many feet. Some heard others, and took up the chant welcoming a victor, and new king: Hosanna!

He came. Riding on a donkey. The symbol of a peaceful victor. Not one to be feared, but one in whom our fears were relieved. Fear of a foreign oppressor dispelled in the hope placed in him: He will free us from soldiers, from taxation, from occupation. He will liberate us. We’ll have our own good king again. Not the half-breed kings, lackeys of the Romans, getting rich off our backs. He’ll set us free.

He rode. He smiled. He enjoyed. It was a gentle smile. It was a mild joy. Like he knew something the crowd didn’t. He saw their hopes, their dreams. He felt their anticipation and desire. They’d been hoping. They’d been waiting. For so long they’d been waiting.

This is a taste, a teaser, for our Easter sermon series, The Real Stories of Easter:

·         April 14 (Palm Sunday) “Why did the crowd go wild?”

·         April 18 (Good Friday) “Why did they want to kill him?”

·         April 21 (Easter Sunday) “Why is His resurrection a big deal for you?”

Each will be presented as a story, and each is built around a question. This sermon series is both for you, believer, and for your not-yet-believing friends and family, too.

Philippians: Joy No Matter What! #Contentment

#NoMatterWhat. That’s right: No matter what, you can have JOY.

Philippians is the Spirit’s letter by Paul to the believers at Philippi in what was then Macedonia, today Northern Greece. Written some 2,000 years ago, it’s still relevant to us today. How?

Life is filled with challenges. It always is. Yet God both gives and communicates to us what we need to know and practice, ensuring our joy in all of life’s ups and downs, especially in this letter that’s filled with joy despite difficulties. Happiness is circumstantial; joy is drawn from a different - and deep - well!

This series we’ll journey together to discover joy in all these areas:

  • March 3 - Circumstances, Philippians 1:1-30

  • March 10 - Attitudes, Philippians 2:1-18

  • March 17 - Relationships, Philippians 2:19-30 & 4:2-3

  • March 24 - Efforts, Philippians 3:1-21

  • March 31 - Pursuits, Philippians 4:1-9

  • April 07 - Contentment, Philippians 4:10-23

Join us at 10:00 am on Sundays for coffee or tea and a bite to enjoy with fellowship before service downstairs. Worship starts upstairs at 10:30. Hope to see you this Sunday! You are invited!

Follow How?

Follow How?

Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, probably somewhere between Capernaum, where he lived, and Bethsaida, where Peter and Andrew lived. He would have enjoyed the lapping of the water, the sound of the birds, the warmth of the sun. Yet his focus was on people. Seeing these guys practicing their fishing trade, he looks them in the eye and says, “Come. Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” And immediately these seasoned men dropped their nets and left everything they’d know, and followed him.

At least ten times in the Gospels, Jesus uses this phrase,

“Come. Follow Me.”

And He continues speaking this invitation into our lives today. Into the lives of those who are new to Him, and into the lives of those who’ve been following Him for years.

In a world of voices crying for our attention, devotion, and imitation, Jesus is still calling. He continues issuing His invitation. How will you answer Him today? How will you answer him tomorrow? How will you answer Him each day of your life?

So we share His invitation with you today: Come. Let us follow Him together!

God With Us: Prince of Peace

You are invited to participate for a four-week series based on the Advent themes of Hope, Love, Joy and Peace called God With Us on Sunday mornings at 10:30.

A remarkable thing happened that first Christmas, just as Isaiah had prophesied 700 years earlier – Jesus was born as Immanuel – which means “God with us!” Danforth Community Church believes Christmas can still truly give us a taste of the most wonderful time of world history. The true light came into the darkness and stress and pain of the world—our world. Miraculously, we continue in God’s story of love everyday as he promises to be with us always. 

“Reconnecting to the roots of Christmas helps us restore the joy of Christmas. What are the roots of Christmas? It’s the anticipation of Jesus’ coming. It’s about reconnecting with Jesus.”

In a season often marked by frenzied busyness, Advent is an opportunity to set aside time to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. The relevant messages in this series are designed to help us place our focus on the greatest gift ever given – and to experience his presence in our lives today. 

Join us at 10:00 am on Sundays for coffee or tea and a bite to enjoy with fellowship before service downstairs. Worship starts upstairs at 10:30. Hope to see you this Sunday! You are invited!

Missions Month : Go & Tell!

Missions Month : Go & Tell!

Businesses, good ones anyway, have a mission statement. Successful businesses stick to their mission like glue, too.

The Church - us as individuals and collectively as God’s people - have a mission statement as well. We don’t make it up ourselves: Jesus gave it to us, in a number of ways and places. These November Sundays we’re looking at His mission to us from Matthew 10:

Jesus called twelve of his followers and sent them into the ripe fields…with this charge:

“Don’t begin by traveling to some far-off place to convert unbelievers… Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here… You have been treated generously, so live generously.”

Like the Blues Brothers, Jesus is sending you and me on a mission. An adventure. One right outside our door. In our neighbourhoods. At our schools, marketplaces and work places. Living and giving the Gospel generously helps us and others enter fully into the generous life only He has made possible. Join us as we grow in this adventure together!
