Articles about 'Outreach':

Christmas? I’m interested. Admin   December 3, 2013

I had the chance to speak at a banquet for university students from other countries studying here in Canadian universities. They are in English classes and conversation groups throughout the city, including some who are part of Waverley Church's program. The organizer of this event and I talked about my audience for that evening. For many of them, this would... More info »

Human Trafficking, what do you say, God? Admin   November 17, 2013

The issue of human trafficking is big now, and in fact has been a sad part of human history for as long as records have been kept. Even so-called "Christians" have used the Bible to defend the practice of slavery and prostitution. On the other side, Christians, churches, and Christian organizations have been the most active opponents of slavery, human... More info »

Living it - In House Admin   July 17, 2013

John 13:34-35, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” When we try to figure out how to translate our faith to something visible, it starts with something in the heart: love. But... More info »

What True Community Wears Admin   June 7, 2013

On June 1 Waverley Church held its "Clothe the Community" event. It is easy to think that June 1 was the event. It really wasn't. The event began a couple of months before. Someone with vision and passion came to us with the idea. A team was formed. The event was planned. Everything was set in place. In the month of May... More info »

ONE - Part 2 Admin   April 11, 2013

Continuing: Jesus has called us to love God, love others, be his follower and help others be followers of him. The challenge we looked at the other day in the first part of this 2 part blog was to introduce one person to Jesus this year. For some this is a fearful proposition. They don't know what to say or how... More info »

ONE Admin   April 10, 2013

On Sunday, April 7 we started a new series called, "Stretch". The idea is that God stretches us in different ways to help us become the people he has always intended us to be. We like challenges, but we also like comfort. If our challenges were comfortable we'd be really happy. Real life isn't that way, though. Our physical bodies need... More info »

Link with our world outside our borders Admin   March 7, 2013

Link with our world outside our borders Taken from the message presented right here at Waverley on March 3, 2013 Here are some important questions for every follower of Jesus: Does our faith in God have anything to do at all with the world around us? Is God touching the needs of the world through us? While we may not pick up... More info »

Link with our world outside our borders Admin   March 7, 2013

Taken from the message presented right here at Waverley on March 3, 2013 Here are some important questions for every follower of Jesus: Does our faith in God have anything to do at all with the world around us?

It’s too cold outside, for angels to fly Admin   February 27, 2013

I still remember the first time I heard it. I was driving in my car to pick up my daughter from school when Ed Sheeran’s song, The A Team, came on the radio. It’s a slow and quiet song that tells a profoundly sad story. It’s not a song for the faint of heart as it speaks... More info »

Link with your own world Admin   February 24, 2013

No matter what we know about Jesus, the Bible, church or God, it is useless unless we’re actually putting it into practice. Do those who are right around us know that we have faith in Jesus and that it actually has made a difference in our lives? I’m not talking about being religious. Being religious has never gotten...

LINK to the world Admin   February 11, 2013

We believe in God and the Bible. Through faith in Jesus we have a relationship with God. We go to church and learn so much. The question is: Is God touching the needs of the world through us? God wants to reach the world through us and has commanded us to go into all the world. God Himself has given... More info »

WWWDWJ Admin   October 3, 2012

This week's blog entry comes from Cam Buchanan, a member here at Waverley as well as the chairman of the board. This was his response to the September 30 Sunday morning message on "Community Grows Together." "I had a thought: when we think of the phrase WWJD, we should extend that thought in the context of community and spiritual development: WWWDWJ?... More info »

“Tzedakah” - A new word for our vocabulary Admin   August 1, 2012

This week I am beginning a three-week sermon series that will be focusing on our understanding of biblical justice. We live in a world (at least in North America) where there is a subtly to the injustices around us. I’m convinced that this subtly often causes us to sinfully ignore or minimize things that we see and experience in... More info »
