Thank You

Posted by: Pastor Keith Smith

My Dear Church Family,

Thank you for your thoughtful and kind comments, as Esther and I celebrate God’s goodness to us in leading you wonderful people as your pastor for the last 20 years.

We were surprised last week, in the 11 am service, by the kind comments expressed by our deacons, prayer over us led by my predecessor Pastor Mulligan, and a video by former and present staff that those attending this weekend’s services will see.

Honestly, it is as much a privilege now as when we first started, to lead this multi generational, multi cultural miracle called APC and our TCC’s. People can give their lives to a lot of different causes and interests. Esther and I have had the privilege, by the grace of God, to give what many call the prime years of our lives to you. And we could not be more grateful. 

We love you more than ever.

Upcoming Weekends

Posted by: Pastor Keith Smith

Today, Esther and I are in Vancouver, where I am officiating the wedding of my youngest sister. It will be a good reunion with family, and a time to get to know a new family.

Next weekend, we prepare for our Holy Spirit Series, “Pursuing a Fresh Spiritual Experience”. It begins with a message on “Experiencing What Jesus Has For You Next”.

A special feature of this series will be a SUNDAY AT SIX service on September 28 at 6 pm, where I will teach on “How the Holy Spirit Baptism Starts, and Lasts”. Then we will have prayer for all who are seeking the experience Jesus called His disciples to be empowered by – the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Be praying with me for a series that won’t just be for our heads and hearts, but an authentically transforming experience for our spirits.

See you in a few days!

Fall Series 2014

Posted by: Pastor Keith Smith

This fall, our preparation for 2015’s Year of Invitation will become more intensely focused.

I recognize both from Scripture, and my own experience, that we can train, educate, budget – we can prepare in all of these ways - but unless the Holy

Spirit prepares us, we will not see lasting fruitfulness.

Jesus said it best: “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses...” (Acts 1:8)

Our most important preparation for 2015’s YEAR OF INVITATION will happen only by the Holy Spirit. Only He can give us the burden for people who need Jesus, and the words that will draw them to Jesus as we INVITE them.

Our fall series, “Pursuing a Fresh Spiritual Experience”, will provide an opportunity for each of us to do spiritual preparation for a year of inviting Torontonians to meet Christ and learn to live for Him.

  • September 20/21 – “Experiencing What Jesus Has For You Next”

  • September 27/28 – “What You Look Like ‘Filled with the Spirit’”

  • SUNDAY AT SIX – September 28 at 6 pm – “How the Holy Spirit Baptism Starts and How it Lasts”

  • October 4/5 – “Our Holy Spirit Instant Messaging”

  • October 11/12 (Thanksgiving Weekend) – “Experiencing the Spirit on Your Own”

  • October 18/19 – “Experiencing the Spirit Together”
