Below are somethings you might ask and expect:-

How should I dress?

Come in relaxed casual wear as you would to a regular type restaurant.  Make sure you are comfortable.

What can I expect?

Parking: As you drive in, turn to the right and there is visitor's parking. It’s close to the main door.

Through the doors: You will be welcomed by a couple of greeters who will show you to the sanctuary doors where ushers will again welcome you, hand you the weekly bulletin and direct you to vacant seats of your choosing.

In the Sanctuary (the main auditorium)?: Sit wherever you like.  There are no reserved seats. Familes have gravitated to the right hand wings of the church. Music will be playing as you enter, and people will be connecting.

Will I be asked to announce my name or speak in public?

No, you will not be asked to do anything that will make you feel uncomfortable or unsafe. A tear off communique slip is attached to a weekly bulletin which you can fill in and hand in on the offering plate if you would like us to pray for you or if you are comfortable to give us any information.

What’s next?: The pastor or someone will welcome everyone to the service and make some announcements. The praise team band will also come to the front and will lead in some singing to direct our thoughts toward God. And the service will start.

What style of music do we use?  We have a blend of modern songs and older genres of music called hymns. This is led by a band of musicians and singers.

Is there a talk:? Yes! A time to expose and explain the meaning behind a Bible passage is given that is applied to how it can affect our lives today.  This takes about 30 minutes of the service. We will always reference the Bible during this time.

How does the service end? The service ends with a song and prayer.  Time for social interaction happens at the end of the service where coffee is served. Feel free to meet our caring and loving church family.

The “I AM” Sayings of Jesus

I Am the Good Shepherd

John 10:11-18, 25-29

 

Rev. David Sparrow

September 27, 2020

 

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." (John 10:11).

 

Introduction

 

The picture of the Good Shepherd has held the mind of men and women down through the centuries. Indeed, Christ’s role as the Good Shepherd is stated more often than any of His other titles or ministries in the literature of Christian hymns and sermons.

 

In the Old Testament, Israel was a primarily pastoral people; its religious concepts were therefore coloured by the language and work habits known to a pastoral society. So we find the picture of sheep and the shepherd used again and again. The role of the shepherd is applied to Yahweh (Isaiah 40:10), and it is also applied to Israel's national leaders. Of course, the outstanding example here is David (2 Samuel 5:2; Psalm 78:70, etc.).

 

When we come to the New Testament, the picture reaches its highest distinction. And our study this morning highlights this pastoral picture. In these verses the Lord Jesus explained what He meant by the Good Shepherd. He calls us to focus on Him as the Good Shepherd
