Every week we want to bring to your attention expository, Gospel-centred sermons from pastors across Canada. We hope that you become familiar with some of the faithful ministers of the word in our nation. We also hope that you will be edified on your daily commute or whenever you listen to these messages. We lastly hope that you learn about the churches where these pastors minister, so that you can easily find Gospel-centered, expository churches in your region.
Jeff Eastwood on Ephesians 1:1-2 (Charlottetown)
Grace: it seems to be at one and the same time our source of greatest comfort and the cause of our deepest struggle. As Paul addresses the believers at Ephesians, he grounds them immediately in a celebration: a celebration of a new community, grace, and truth, all anchored to the grace and peace only God can provide. Follow along as Pastor Jeff preaches “Community and Celebration” from Ephesians 1:1-2.

Steve Kim on “Learn to Pray like Jesus in Gethsemane” from Matthew 36:36-46 (Toronto)
When Jesus foretold his death, the disciples made a resolution that they would never fall away from him, even if it meant. Within hours of making this resolution, Jesus was arrested and all the disciples fled. What happened in that short amount of time? To answer that question, we need to look closely at the garden of Gethsemane, because there, we learn something important about the problem of humanity, the perfection of Jesus, and the power of prayer.
Here is the sermon.
Jeff Jones on “God’s Gift For Growth” from Acts 6:1-7 (Calgary)
Church growth is a good thing–until that growth causes problems. But in Acts 6 God gives his church a gift for managing that growth, a gift that has as much promise and potential to help a growing twenty-first century urban church as it did a growing first-century urban church.
