Andrew Glidden continues our new teaching series "At The Centre" and this week we are sharing some new apprenticeship homework!
We don’t know what the future holds when it comes to COVID, but being an apprentice of Jesus never stops. No matter what phase we are in take some time to reflect on these questions from our previous teachings:
• What's one word you believe Jesus is giving you as you enter 2021? You may not know what the word means right now, but that's ok! Trust that Jesus wants, and is going to form something in you.
• Have I asked Jesus to reveal himself to me lately? How can I make it a daily practice to ask Jesus to reveal himself to me.
Josh Keliher shares from Exodus 20:8-11 and Deuteronomy 5:12-15 on the meaning of Sabbath. Sabbath has a role in helping us combat the busyness and hurry of our daily lives. But not merely through taking a break and finding balance in the day to day, but in the recognition that our paths are ordained by God, and that through our trust in him, we will have the right conditions for true rest.
Martin Wightman continues our teaching series sharing from Ezekiel 34:11-15 and Mark 6:30-46.
As we seek to eliminate hurry in our lives, we need practices to change our behaviours. Spending time in silence and solitude is one such practice, one that unmoors us from our society's obsession with productivity and consumerism. It fills us instead with Christ and the voice and direction of the Holy Spirit. In silence, we allow our souls to be shepherded.
Living and loving like Jesus may look different for you than for me because God has given us different missions. This week we begin to explore how to discover our mission and how that plays out in our day to day.

Our mission statement at SJV is learning together to live and love like Jesus. But how do you measure that? How do we know we’re accomplishing that mission? This week we talk about how we accomplish that mission and 3 barriers that may prevent us.
We have so many time saving tools at our disposal but we are still asking ourselves "where do I find the time?"
Join us as we kick off our series based on John Mark Comers book "The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry". We will unpack what it means to be an apprentice of Jesus in a highly addictive, hurried, disconnected world.
We’ve heard the creation story, and we walk in creation everyday, but have we lost something by letting such a powerful story become too mundane. Let’s go back to the beginning and be reminded we still have a choice that can alter the course of our own story.
