    Sermon #11 Growing in Small Group Relationships

    Our message for today will focus on how spiritual growth can develop by how we treat people. While addressed to the church at large, we will apply the principles found in 1 Thessalonians 5:12-15 in the context of small groups. I will be preaching in all our services today.

  • Easter Cantata “Where Love and Mercy Meet”

    Jesus made an astounding claim in Luke 4. When He proclaimed that He was the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy, it was more than a résumé of credentials; it was a mission statement. In fact, it was a commitment – to you and to me – that there would be a place where sinners can find mercy; the afflicted can find healing; the broken can find compassion, and the outcast can find dignity. Behold the cross of Christ…it is the place where love and mercy meet.
    This profound spiritual theme is movingly captured by veteran arranger Marty Parks in this Easter presentation material entitled, “Where Love & Mercy Meet.” Combining popular songs by Michael W. Smith, Bill and Gloria Gaither, and Darlene Zschech and Reuben Morgan with beloved classics, this musical will definitely engage everyone into a personal worship of Christ.

     

    We will be staging this presentation at our 10am and 3pm services, featuring our very own GCFNorth Chancel Choir, conducted by Sis. Kate Cansino with Bro. Daniel de Tablan as our production director, and other exalting ministry volunteers. This Easter Sunday, we invite you to come to the place where love and mercy meet – the cross of Jesus Christ. Happy Resurrection Sunday!

  • Good Friday Service

    We take a break from our sermon series to reflect on the great love of our Lord Jesus as demonstrated through His death on the cross. For some, the Holy Week is a very solemn time to ponder and reflect on what Jesus Christ did for all of us on that cross. For others, it is a time to be with family. A time to rest from the very rigid routine of daily work. But however we choose to spend the Holy Week, may we never forget God’s great love even as we reflect on this “Good Friday” and what it means to us. To help us reflect more on that, Ptr. Tim Undheim will be sharing God’s Word with a message entitled, “Mission Accomplished” based on John 19:23-30. May we never take God’s love for granted, but rather, share His love to others. God bless us all!

     

    Easter Cantata

    We invite everyone to come and hear God’s Word thru music as we celebrate “Easter Sunday” with a presentation from our Chancel Choir entitled, “Where Love and Mercy Meet.” We will have two services on Sunday, one at 10am and another at 3pm.

    Sermon #10 Stopping Narcolepsy

    We are on our 10th installment in our message series “Growing As Disciples of Christ.” This is based on Purpose Driven Ministry’s “A Spiritual Road Map in a Mixed Up World.” Narcolepsy, according to Google, is the condition that is “characterized by an extreme tendency to fall asleep whenever in relaxing surroundings.” Our passage in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 shows us that believers should not be sleeping- in a figurative way, that is. Instead we should be sober and watchful because the Lord may come at a time when we least expect it. How do we stop spiritual narcolepsy? Let’s listen to Pastor Jeff Atanacio at our morning services. Pastor Robert Chiu of United Evangelical Church of La Union will share the Word of God at GCF Montalban and here at our 3:30pm service.

    Sermon No. 4: Steps in Spiritual Reproduction

    The Great Commission commands us to make disciples. Discipleship entails the reproduction of ourselves. The things that we have learned from our own disciplers, we must pass on to others, so that they in turn will teach others also (see 2 Timothy 2:2). This is God's design for spiritual multiplication. What must we do in order to achieve spiritual reproduction? P. Benjie Miranda will address this subject as he speaks in our English services today. His message is entitled "Knowing the Steps in Spiritual Reproduction," based on 1 Thessalonians 2:6-12.  P. Jem Quesada will preach on the same topic in our Tagalog worship service.
