“If” by Mark Batterson

Come Join the contemporary worship service at 9 AM each Sunday for this powerful study.

Iif-mark-batterson-coverf is a powerful little word. Some people are stuck in “if only,” trudging through lives marked with regret. But God wants us to live lives marked with possibilities, with the “what if” attitude that looks forward to the future with confidence. Why? Because the answer to “If God is for us, who can be against us?” is “No one.” God is always on our side. Every day, in every way.

With his trademark enthusiasm and contagious joy, Mark Batterson helps us overcome feelings of guilt, fear, and doubt because in Christ there is no condemnation. Unpacking the promises of Romans 8, he shows us that we are more than conquerors—right now and forever. And because of that, the possibilities for our lives are limitless.

The city of Fort McMurray in Northern Alberta evacuated up to 80,000 people yesterday afternoon and evening as a result of a wild fire that engulfed areas of the city.  The situation is very much evolving, today’s weather is expected to be worse than yesterday.  Municipal, Provincial and Federal resources are in place to respond.

The focus today is on protecting critical infrastructure and fighting the fire. Municipalities south of Fort McMurray have established reception sites for those fleeing to the south.  Oilsands Operation Camps north and south of Fort McMurray are being opened to the thousands who had to evacuate.
