Joyful Tidings!!! November 11, 2017

Greetings,

Today we would like honour those who have sacrificially served, and continue to serve our nation in times of war, conflict, and peace. Our prayers go out to you today and to the family members who lost loved ones as they valiantly fought for our peace and freedom. Words can’t express how grateful we are for you all, and today we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your service and sacrifice. May The Lord bless you all for your example of love as Jesus reminds us that “There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends” (John 15:13). From all of us at Catch The Fire Ottawa, we say “Thank You.”

Here are some joyful tidings coming up this week:

***TOMORROW’S TIDINGS:

EVERYONE GETS TO SLEEP IN TOMORROW!!!

For those of you who like to sleep in, you know that daylight savings time in the fall means one extra hour of sleep-in time!!! Remember, in order to enjoy that extra hour you need to remember to turn your clocks back one hour before going to bed tonight :)

Our next prophetic ministry at Catch The Fire Ottawa will be this Sunday, November 5 right before the service from 1:15 to 1:45 PM.

SEND OFF FOR LAURIE-ANN COPPLE!!!

It is with great joy to see how the Lord has led Laurie-Ann and her husband Tony to serve as missionaries with Iris Ministries in South Africa for three years!

***TIDINGS FOR THIS WEEK AND BEYOND:

REMINDER: FASTING ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8!!!

Last Sunday Trisha called us to participate a 1-day corporate fast next Wednesday, November 8 and we invite you to pray about it and ask the Lord whether He’d like you to fast. The fast is specifically for Ottawa and the church of Ottawa. It is a general call to pray that God would completely have His way in the Ottawa region (for example, pray for lost souls, unity in the church, or whatever you feel led)! If you feel called to participate, you can do any kind of fast however the Lord leads you to fast (e.g., water fast, juice fast etc.) There is no need to sign-up to participate, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like any guidance.

INTERCESSORY PRAYER LIFE NEXT TUESDAY!!!

 “Dear praying saints, anyone who is available and wants to join us, next Tuesday evening our home will be open for Intercession, 7-9pm. We plan to meet on the first and third Tuesday of each month. You are invited to come whenever you can.  The focus of this group is strengthening individual prayer warriors and interceding for CTF Ottawa.”

Joyful Tidings!!! October 28, 2017

Shalom!!!

We are only a few days away from the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation, which was an event that literally changed the course of history. Here is a historical tidbit about “Reformation Day” for those of you who are interested:

“Traditionally, 31 October 1517 is widely held to be the day German monk Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses on the door of the All Saints' Church in Wittenberg…. Historians and other experts on the subject argue that Luther may have chosen All Hallows' Eve on purpose to get the attention of common people, although this has never been proven. Available data suggests that October 31 was when Luther sent his work to Albert of Brandenburg, the Archbishop of Mainz. This has been verified; nowadays, it is regarded as the start of the Reformation alongside the unconfirmed nailing of the Ninety-five Theses to All Saints' Church's door on the same date.”

As we consider our spiritual heritage and honour the resolve and courage of our forefathers who paved the way for us, here are some joyful tidings and friendly reminders for you all:

FREE SOUP MEAL AFTER SERVICE ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29!!!

Joyful Tidings!!! September 2, 2017

Merry Long Weekend Everyone!!!

Here is a historical tidbit on the origins of Labour Day to help enhance your Labour Day celebrations: “Labour Day (French: Fête du Travail) has been celebrated in Canada on the first Monday in September since the 1880s. The origins of Labour Day in Canada can be traced back to December 1872 when a parade was staged in support of the Toronto Typographical Union's strike for a 58-hour work-week….Labour leaders decided to call another similar demonstration on 3 September to protest the arrests. Seven unions marched in Ottawa, prompting a promise by Canadian Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald to repeal the "barbarous" anti-union laws.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labour_Day#Canada)

In addition to that piece of history, Here are some joyful tidings and friendly reminders for your reading pleasure:

"This is what's interesting about love; it can let you go. False love tends to cut or trap. But the love of God isn't like false love. It's true. It has the power to let you go and to hold you close. And because of that, it's the only love that has the power to heal your heart."

CTF OTTAWA VIDEO OF THE WEEK:

“Salvation is an Experienced Reality, Not Just a Historical Fact”

At the heart of the gospel message is salvation. New Testament writers like Paul were Trinitarian at the core of their experience and theology. Salvation in Christ is not simply a theological truth, based on God’s prior action and the historical work of Christ. Salvation is an experienced reality, made so by the person of the Spirit coming into our lives. You can’t have the first two without the third. We need to have the experienced dimension as a vital part of our lives, our gatherings, and the gospel message! Check out this week’s video blog to learn more:

CTF OTTAWA VIDEO OF THE WEEK:

“What is Salvation? How the Biblical Writers Express the Inexpressible”

Biblical writers often say things metaphorically because the realityor truth they are addressing is so much bigger than any one metaphor is capable of expressing. This is the reason why there is such a wide variety of metaphors for salvation, which suggests that no single one in itself will adequately express the reality. Salvation has too many facets to be captured by a single image. Check out this week's video blog to learn more about the multifaceted nature of salvation.

“People will come up to me and ask me to be free of the fear of man. There is one basic cure for the fear of man, it is called the fear of God. You can’t fear both. People will then say ‘well there is no fear in love. How can I love God and fear Him?’ You must not be married….Whoever made up that one is obviously single.”

FRIENDLY REQUEST FROM OUR FRIENDS AT ST. PAUL’S!!!

The amazing people at St. Paul’s sent out a request to members of their congregation this week and asked if we would pass it onto our church as well. It was a friendly reminder that they advertise their building to be scent free because many of their congregation members have serious problems with fragrance (e.g., environmental allergies). So please try to remember not to wear fragrances when present at St. Paul’s. Thank you all so much!

CTF OTTAWA VIDEO OF THE WEEK:

“Distinguishing the ‘Ye’ from the ‘Thee’ in First Corinthians Three”

What is the Temple of the Holy Spirit? In our incredibly individualistic culture, we often read certain scriptures as referring to our individual lives, when the original authors indented them for the gathered community. One of the scriptures where this happens the most is when Paul is talking about the Temple of the Holy Spirit in First Corinthians chapter 3. This is an unfortunate misreading because this happens to be one of the most important scriptures on the local church in the entire New Testament! Check out this week’s video message to hear more:

Joyful Tidings!!! Happy Canada Day!!!

Happy Canada Day Everyone!!!

God is so good and we are so thankful for Him for our amazing nation of Canada. As we consider how blessed we are to be living in a nation that is truly “overflowing with milk and honey,” what better way to celebrate Canada’s 150 birthday than to praise God with Psalm 150:

“1 Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty heavens.
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
    praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
    praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
    praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
    praise him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.”

Amen.

Here are some joyful tidings to share with you all :)

Joyful Tidings!!! June 24, 2017

Happy Day!!!

Summer is officially here as of June 21 and we hope you are all enjoying this beautiful summer weather this weekend! As we celebrate good times, here are some Joyful Tidings and friendly reminders:

FREE SOUP DINNER AFTER OUR SERVICE TOMORROW JUNE 25!!!

St. Paul’s church has a brand new land mower just waiting to be used!!! If you would be interested in helping with lawn mowing, there are sign-up sheets on a table in the lobby outside the sanctuary. The kind folks at St. Paul’s said that they don’t expect anyone to take more than 1 or 2 shifts over the season, and you can choose the week you serve. Please feel free to sign up at church on Sunday, or email us at ottawa@catchthefire.com and we can connect you with the people at St. Paul’s for more information

CTF OUTREACH EVENT VOLUNTEER OPORTUNITIES!!!

***Please note that we will have sign-up sheets at church this Sunday with the various volunteer opportunities available for this outreach event. You can sign up for this at our regular Sunday services or by emailing ottawa@catchthefire.com

Written by Jennifer Chen:

"As some might know, Catch The Fire Ottawa is planning to have an outreach in the church parking lot in July for those who live in the neighbourhood.

“Why are we doing this outreach? We know that it is God's desire that not one person should be lost, but that all should come to know Him as Lord and Saviour. However, we know that this is far from the case, especially among people who are self-sufficient, and often successful and prosperous, like some who live in the neighbourhood of St Paul's.  We are hoping that many from the neighbourhood will accept our invitation to come to our outreach, where we plan to give out free hot dogs, drinks and other snacks, and offer fun activities for children. We will have a tent where people may receive prayer if they so desire, and a table with various evangelistic handouts such as the Father's Love Letter and New Testaments, etc. We hope to have a table where people can find the biblical meaning of their names. We plan to make it a fun time for those from the neighbourhood who come, as well as all those from CTFO who volunteer their help.

“In order to prepare the neighbourhood for this event, some of us are doing regular prayer walks, saturating the area with blessing and prayer. If you feel called to join the prayer walking, either in preparation for the outreach event, or to bless the area and saturate it with prayer on an ongoing basis, even after the outreach, Diane and Howie Marsh will help set you up with your own area to walk. 

“We hope that many in our church will become involved in helping with this outreach. Very soon we will give details about the areas in which we need help."

Selah Quote of the Week:

“All relationships are built on trust. You can love somebody, but if you don’t trust them your relationship is very limited at best. Trust is the bridge between people and the stronger the bridge the more weight that can be carried across that bridge.”

Joyful Tidings!!! June 17, 2017

Happy Father’s Day weekend!

As we consider all of the amazing things our heavenly Father has done for us, let’s celebrate and honour our earthly Fathers for all of their love, sacrifice, and all the ways they have served as examples and have demonstrated the love of God to us. Let’s celebrate them and give them double honour this weekend!

On that note, here are some Joyful Tidings and friendly reminders:

Selah Quote of the Week:

“Time is one of the most precious gifts that we can be given on this earth, and how we use our time, especially our “free” time, is usually a good indication of who we are really serving on this earth—the world, the Lord, or ourselves.”
