ONLY ONE GOSPEL:
The former Augustinian monk Martin Luther wrote, “The letter to the Galatians is MY letter. To it I am, as it were, in wedlock.” With a profound understanding that this New Testament letter addressed the vital issues of the church in his day, he wrote his commentary on Galatians and it quickly became the Manifesto of the Protestant Reformation.

The problems Luther struggled with long ago are not unlike the same things we wonder about and wrestle with today. Among a variety of religious authorities espousing different teachings, how are we to know who is right? How do we know what and whom to believe or not believe? How can we be made right with God? How can we, living under the pressure of a “do whatever you want and be whatever you want” culture, live lives that are pleasing to God?

ONLY ONE GOSPEL, a preaching series by our Lead Pastor, John Mahaffey will answer these important questions and expound the timeless truths of Galatians’ central message – the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Wise Living in a Broken World:
Our Summer in the City preaching series is shared by all of our pastors. This summer we are looking at Wise Living in a Broken World – a study in the book of Proverbs. In God’s Word we are exhorted to “be very careful how you live – not as unwise but as wise … because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:15). How exactly does one become wise?

Proverbs 1:20 says, “Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the market she raises her voice.” God’s wisdom does not stand aloof, but instead graciously moves toward us, into this broken world in which we live and struggle every day – offering us her very best, if we will only listen. This preaching series will draw relevant parallels from King Solomon’s ancient culture to the present day and help us understand how the book of Proverbs is practical help for ordinary people going through everyday life. And each Sunday message will also point us to Jesus, the One “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3).

The Church: The Gospel Made Visible:
This year (2017) as we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation we want to study together as a church the great truths that burned in the hearts of the Reformers and brought spiritual light to so many people. This preaching series in Ephesians is entitled The Church – The Gospel Made Visible. This New Testament letter was the favourite of the great Reformer, John Calvin. He cherished it because it reveals clearly the gospel and the true nature of the church. Each Sunday morning we will explore the great themes and truths about the Church which Ephesians explains.

Mission Refocus:
One of life’s great joys is to see the fulfillment of something we have dreamed of, longed for and worked towards. With the new additions to our worship and ministry centre only weeks away from completion, we are at last experiencing this dream-realized joy. It’s hard to believe that about 12 years have passed since the first serious discussions about expanding began. I distinctly remember a meeting with Steve Oswald in early 2007 when, before I became pastor, he excitedly shared with me the church leadership’s vision to expand. Frankly, this was one of several things that God used to attract me to West Highland - the vision of the leaders for an expanded witness for Christ.

As we begin a new chapter in our church’s history, it’s important for us to refocus again on what God has called us to. Yes, it’s time again to refocus on our mission. So for these three remaining Sundays in September I want to preach again about the mission God has entrusted to us and take a peek again at the heart of the One who loved the world so much that he gave his One and Only Son.

Life Together:
Summer in the City, our special preaching series shared by all of our pastors. This year’s focus is Life Together. This is the title of Dietrich Bonheoffer’s famous book which was printed in 1939 while he was teaching at an illegal seminary in Nazi Germany. Bonheoffer understood the need for the church to be the church because of the Nazi threat. The surrounding threat amplified the truth that we need each other. Our situation today may be different than what Bonheoffer faced in 1939, but we too are surrounded by a culture antagonistic to Christ and the Gospel. Our need for each other is real. The old maxim “No man is an island” is certainly true of the Christian life. We need the support of each other.

The Apostles underscore this theme in almost every New Testament letter by using the phrase “one another.” Jesus did too when he said, “Love one another.” That’s what Life Together is all about, a study of the various “one another” exhortations that the apostles give us for our life together as a local church.

Filled With Awe:
“Everyone was filled with awe” (Acts 2:43). This was the experience of the new believers converted on the day of Pentecost who then “devoted themselves...to the fellowship.” Their loving devotion to one another was one of several components that created the context in which God was so powerfully at work among them that they stood in awe of his glory and his works. I have had this “filled with awe” experience a number of times in my 44-year pilgrimage with Jesus. Last Sunday night (January 3rd) was one of those times. This was like the cream on top of the wonder of Sunday morning—a special extra blessing to my own soul. The Fellowship Hall was full and the testimonies were amazing. I was “filled with awe” to hear so many testify of God’s work in their lives and in our church and these many joyful offerings of prayers set the tone for Seek Week. It was also a great way to begin a new year. I will share with you my Top Ten Prayer Concerns for 2016. These are the things I desire God to do among us, through us, and in us. These are my aspirations for West Highland. I ask you to join me in seeking God for these things and may the one who knows and answers prayer still move among us throughout the year, that everyone will be “filled with awe”.

Christmas Songs
There is no event in all of human history that has so inspired composers to write music than the miracle of Christmas. In almost every culture and language there are many songs, choruses, carols and hymns whose words and melodies have been inspired by the birth of Jesus Christ. In every generation, Christmas songs have been written and they continue to be written as a celebration that God in Christ invaded this planet 2,000 years ago. The miracle of Christmas is something worth singing about.

This series will continue for several advent seasons and will focus on the first Christmas songs recorded in Luke’s Gospel – the songs of Elizabeth, Mary, Zechariah, Simeon and the Angels. These are the "Original Christmas Carols” and they are very different from the traditional and contemporary Christmas songs we sing at this time of the year. Each of these songs was a prophetic utterance given by the Holy Spirit and they are packed full of truth about Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas.

A Time To Build
The Story of Nehemiah
The book of Nehemiah is the story of a man burdened by God to rebuild the walls of the city of Jerusalem after it had been destroyed and left in ruin. But in the rebuilding of the city’s walls, a greater story was unfolding - the rebuilding of people’s ruined lives. For Nehemiah, the broken city symbolized the broken people of the city; the walls in ruin were lives in ruin.

Through A Time to Build , we will discover together principles that must guide us in the expansion of our facilities; and the focus that must inspire us – rescuing people from ruin.

The Gospel According to GENESIS
"In the Beginning” seems so long ago. The stories we read in Genesis often feel archaic, not to mention over-familiarized. The thing is, many of us have never sought to dig deeply into the accounts of Genesis – Creation, the Fall, the Flood – because we feel like we know them inside and out. But the Bible isn’t a collection of stories. Actually, it’s one story – God’s story of bringing us back to Himself after sin infiltrated a good world and caused the unraveling of creation.

Join John Mahaffey as he examines Genesis 1-11 and explores how the first chapters of the Bible lay the foundation for the gospel of Jesus Christ – the good news of salvation that we find only in relationship with Him.

The words we read in Genesis are the same words that provided hope for the hungry Israelites in the wilderness, breathed courage into the heart of David in the most difficult moments of his life, and fed the soul of Jesus Himself during His time on earth. God’s promises are as relevant today as they were "in the beginning.”

The Gospel According to GENESIS: The Restoration Begins
God Is Making It Good Again

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph.

Many of us, since childhood, have heard the stories of these main characters of the book of Genesis. The problem is, we’ve usually heard them as broken up isolated fragments that are not inter-related. Abraham preparing to sacrifice his son, Isaac; Jacob wrestling with God; Joseph and his multi-coloured coat. When we dig deeper, we see that these men and their stories are part of a single, seamless story – one that stretches from the first page of the Bible to the last.

Join John Mahaffey as he examines Genesis 12-50 and explores how the first book of the Bible foreshadows the gospel of Jesus Christ – the good news of salvation and redemption that we find only in relationship with Him. In the lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph – the family of promise – we will discover how God takes a sinful, idolatrous, messed up, self-centered, wacko, dysfunctional family and makes them his very own people. Through their stories, we begin to understand that God orchestrates everything, including sin, dysfunctionality, suffering and evil, in order to redeem the consequences of the fall and ultimately restore us to Him.

A recent article states we spend 50% of our time thinking and talking about money, how to get it, save it, spend it, invest it, and give it.  This 5-6 week preaching series is designed to help us think and live by the liberating biblical principles of Christian Stewardship.

Lord, Teach Us To Pray:
Lord, Teach Us To Pray: Have you ever observed that the only thing the first disciples of Jesus are recorded to have asked Jesus to teach them is, "Lord, teach us to pray" (Luke 11:1)? There is no record of any disciple asking Jesus to teach them to lead, or to counsel, or to heal, or to cast out demons, or to preach. They may have asked him, but there is no record of them doing so. Why? Perhaps it is because they could see that Jesus’ leading, counselling, healing, deliverance and preaching ministry emerged out of his relationship with his "Father." And they could see that the key to that relationship was prayer. Jesus, after all, was always slipping away to pray (Luke 5:16).
"Lord, teach us to pray." I understand the disciples’ request to mean more than, "Jesus, teach us some new spiritual technique that will help us stay awake and make us feel our prayers matter." I believe their request meant, "Jesus, teach us how to relate to the one you call ‘Father’ the way you do." This was their greatest need and it is ours too.
I have never met a Christian who doesn’t struggle with prayer. For me it is the hardest discipline to develop and maintain. It is the one practice I long for the most and the one I find the easiest to avoid. As we begin a new teaching series on the Lord’s Prayer, I hope you will join with me in united voice, "Lord, teach us to pray."
