Christ in the Passover Presentation: Teddy Lema

We welcome, Teddy Lema, from Jews for Jesus, as he presents, Christ in the Passover. He will demonstrate the link between the Jewish feast of Passover and the last supper Jesus shared with his disciples the night before his arrest. Teddy was born and raised in an Ethiopian Orthodox family and moved to Toronto in 1996. Teddy and Dvora both serve as missionaries in the Toronto branch of Jews for Jesus.

We will be streaming our service live on our Watch Live page. Join us online this Sunday at 10 am. Watch any of our previous sermon series on the Sermon Archive page.

This Sunday

Speaker: Pastor Bill Thornton

A decorated Christmas tree sheltering wrapped presents, a fireplace glowing, a mantlepiece hosting the nativity scene, and stockings dangling in anticipation is an inviting picture isn’t it? The only thing missing is music—namely, Christmas music. This series will review the first Christmas Playlist performed by Mary and her relative Zechariah. As we listen, may “God bless Us, Every One!”

Dare to Believe (Fall) Campaign

In April 2019 we celebrated the Grand Opening of our $3 million dollar building expansion.  We now have an enlarged lobby and kitchen, new washrooms, an activity room and kids meeting room.  We praise God for his provision in allowing this dream to become a reality.  Of course, our ultimate objective is not an expanded facility, but having the space to advance the kingdom of Christ.  We invite you to invest in the future with us by committing to donate towards the remaining $1.551 million dollar loan.  Our goal is to receive a minimum of $160,000 each year over and above donations to the General Budget.  By doing so, may God “bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” (2 Conrinthians 9:8).
