L A S T W E E K | Lent Series
If you only had a week left, how would you spend your time here on earth?
The Week leading up to Easter is a really important and special time for Christians everywhere, but the week passes by so quickly and we don’t have the time to reflect deeply on what it means. Instead of cramming our reflection time into one schedule-packed week of special services, we are going to slow down and spend the entire season of Lent on the events that took place during Jesus’ Last Week.
#NBUCchurch LAST WEEK : Denied, Betrayed, Abandoned. March 29, 2020 - Debbie JohnsonWhat if you had one week left to live? How would you deal with the hurt and pain and betrayals, you experienced in your life? What if you had multiple betrayals in the last week as Jesus did?
1. Judas, a disciple who had been with him throughout his ministry and who had the trusted position of being in charge of the money that funded some of Jesus’ ministry
2. Peter, one of the closest disciples, who first says he would die for him, denies knowing Jesus/denies following him (being a disciple)
3. The rest of the disciples, other than the women who never get counted as part of the twelve, who run away and hide once Jesus is arrested
4. The crowds of people who had shouted Hosanna as Jesus rode into Jerusalem, become the same people who shout Crucify
Scripture: Luke 22:1-6, 33-34, 54-62
NBUC is where I found my faith and I learned to give and receive the grace of God. This is where, every day, I learn to be a better parent, wife, and friend. My daughter and husband worship with me weekly, and we are growing in Christ, together as a family!Andrea
Since coming to NBUC, God has brought into my life a community of support and acceptance through the kindness and wisdom of the church parishioners and staff. I’ve been inspired and touched by the experience and it’s truly begun a journey of growth in faith in my life.Trevor
God is always reminding me I am "enough", that I am a good person, and that God is always with me. NBUC has taught me more about prayer and the power of prayer - reminding me that we are here to serve and not be served.Catherine
Reviving The Church, Rewiring The Culture
We want to seek God’s presence. We will pray for what God puts on our heart. We will give thanks for all God has done and is doing. Prayers for our City and its leaders, our churches and leaders/programs, NBUC initiatives, people that have submitted prayer requests, events happening in our community. Including prayers of thanksgiving to God.
We invite and encourage anyone and everyone that wants to pray. We hope to connect with other churches and community groups within Brampton to participate together with us. Our goal is to have at least 168 people to each take 1 hour in the week to dedicate to prayer but will celebrate where God takes us.
Explore life, faith &
Alpha is an 11 week course that creates a space where people come and discuss life’s big questions in a friendly, open and informal environment.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith.
Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a video/talk and good conversation.
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.
The video talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Each talk is around thirty minutes long and given as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
One of the most important parts of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and discuss in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
