Is this the first "sinking feeling" ever recorded?(See the story of Adam and Eve recorded in Genesis 3)One of the first things recorded about this first couple is that they were UNASHAMED, and just after they sinned, they immediately hid from God.Shame always makes us hide, one way or another.Often stemming from childhood messages, things done to u…
 
We get into part 2 of our series "That Sinking Feeling"Since COVID especially, the rise of people feeling overwhelming anxiety has statistically skyrocketed. Interestingly, working moms are feeling these effects most acutely.It's a complex issue that may have its roots in physiology, psychology, trauma, emotions, circumstances, AND our Spirit! We d…
 
New Series begins!How are you doing these days?Really. How are you REALLY doing?Do you sense something going on with people? Do they seem angrier? More fearful, more anxious, more depressed?What's going on?God has given us the GIFT of an array of powerful emotions. Jesus Himself experienced all of them (and managed not to sin).In what seems like th…
 
he Final Letter from our "Dear NAC: 7 Letters From Jesus" series.The seventh letter is to the church in Laodecia This is my (Jonathan's) favourite of the 7 letters (Is that weird to have favourites?)It's an iconic letter that includes phrases you've definitely heard before. It includes perhaps the most dramatic rebuke... your "lukewarmness" makes m…
 
"HE IS RISEN INDEED!”Our favourite Sunday of the year.Death is defeated. The tomb is empty. Jesus is alive!Even some Christians though may not know some of the significant points and impact of Easter.You might just be surprised at the difference Easter can make!על ידי Jonathan K. Gonyou
 
Along with Smyrna, the church in Philadelphia is the only other church that receives no rebuke or correction. They were praised that even in their weakness they have been faithful and persevered through times of trial.They had been excluded from their local synagogues because of their faith in Jesus. Even through the loss of community, and family t…
 
Does anyone else feel a little bit like you've been sleepwalking the last couple of years?COVID has had that effect. Motivation, discipline, and initiative have all taken a hit. But if we're honest this is more than a COVID problem. The daily grind of making a living, the distractions meant to entertain us and the relative comfort of Canadian life …
 
March 27, 2022FENCE-SITTERSGetting the balance of being "in" the world but not "OF" the world can be tricky.Some err on the side of isolating, but as a result, never make a meaningful gospel impact on the world around them. They may COME to church but they never go and BE the church.For others, the temptation is to compromise to the ways and values…
 
Letter #3So much talk of "battles" and "attack" and "war" in Revelation and most of it looks very different than what we are seeing in Ukraine (for instance). Jesus warns of a VISIBLE battle - (persecutors, bad rulers, and governments) which most churches were standing firm against, and he warns against the INVISIBLE battles (principalities and pow…
 
This is the only letter where Jesus has no word of correction or rebuke. This was a good church, but they were going through some stuff.They were going through (literally) "crushing pressure..."You know, to be a true disciple of Jesus in 2022 means that at some point you will face "crushing pressure".Pressure from the culture to compromise. Pressur…
 
Letter #1 in our "Dear NAC: 7 Letters From Jesus" series.This one may sting.What if Jesus were saying something to us like... "You guys are working so hard. Your reputation in the community is one of high Christian character. The hungry are being fed. Missions are being supported. You are orthodox. I just have this one thing against you... It seems…
 
As we begin this new series "DEAR NAC..." we need a little context on this sometimes perplexing book (actually a letter) called Revelation.Literally titled “The Apocalypse”. Now when I say the word “Apocalypse” most of you are thinking “Oh no, the zombies are here”. We talked about a couple of summers ago, that the word simply meant “unveiling”. It…
 
Byron Hurn has been an integral part of the history, ministry, and leadership of NAC. His influence and service simply can't be overstated. As the Hurns make a major life change, which includes settling in a different province, we wanted to hear if Byron had a "word" for NAC - a church he loves dearly.…
 
Today Jonathan would like to pose a question to you.Have you already decided what your limitations are?Have you got a fixed idea of what your capacity is?How do you know what your capacity is if you never challenge it?How do you know what you’re capable of if you never get beyond what you're comfortable with.There is a God who is able to do “Immeas…
 
Uh-oh.Is this one of those "The Church only wants my money" sort of things?Nope.In fact, we're starting this series in the midst of a surplus and healthy giving at NAC. Generosity is MORE than money BUT money IS a subject Jesus talked about ALOT. He knew back in the day that it was as true than as it is now, that money has the biggest potential to …
 
So often we have viewed Church as a “gated community”. Whose “IN”? Whose “OUT”? Who has the same Beliefs and Behaviours that we do so that they can belong? Who has said a specific prayer so that they get access?Maybe that wasn’t the model Jesus had in mind. Maybe Disciple-making isn’t even necessarily reserved for those who have “crossed the line o…

Boxing Day, 2021 Newmarket Alliance ChurchThe final story in our "Original Christmas Playlist" of people just breaking into spontaneous song, is that of old man Simeon who came to the temple every day hoping to catch a glimpse of the promised Messiah.One day his waiting paid off.So will yours.על ידי Jonathan K. Gonyou
 
Even after having been visited by an angel herself, it wasn’t until Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth (who herself was miraculously pregnant with John) that Mary burst into song, praising God in what has come to be known as Mary’s “magnificant”.Could the good news of Christmas this year even cause us to want to burst into song?…
 
Before Frosty or Rudolph; Before chestnuts roasting on an open fire or dashing through the snow on a one-horse open sleigh… Before even “Silent Night” or “Joy to the World” there were four songs recorded in the Bible surrounding the birth of Jesus.They are songs that aren't sung much at all these days, and perhaps need to be introduced to a new gen…
 
NEW SERIES: “THE ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS PLAYLIST”Before Frosty or Rudolph; Before chestnuts roasting on an open fire or dashing through the snow on a one-horse open sleigh… Before even “Silent Night” or “Joy to the World” there were four songs recorded in the Bible surrounding the birth of Jesus.They are songs that aren't sung much at all these days, a…
 
LOSING MY RELIGION Part 7: “A Story of Re-construction”As we wrap up this series on the epidemic of folks losing their religion... walking away from their faith because of... well... because of a litany of reasons. Christians are deconstructing the religion they were raised with. A lot of GOOD has come out of that. Sometimes deconstructing has led …
 
LOSING MY RELIGION part 6: “Is There Really Only One Way?” One of the big criticisms of the Christian message is what seems to be its EXCLUSIVITY (read: "intolerance") Did Jesus really make a line in the sand for "insiders" and "outsiders"? Is the idea of eternal separation from God (read: "Hell") a deal-breaker for you?Doesn't this buck against th…
 
What do you think is the #1 inhibitor to the Christian faith?One could argueit's meandit's you Or maybe it's more fair to argue it's those who consistently proclaim to be followers of Jesus but whose words, actions and lives look nothing like the Christ we claim to follow. But even then, are our collective short-comings enough to discredit the good…
 
There are many things in Christianity that we can respectfully "agree to disagree" on. Many things in the Big Tent of Orthodoxy where there is room for differing interpretations. It's why we have the many denominations we do, each with its own emphases and unique calling.על ידי Jonathan K. Gonyou
 
You may have heard lately of many people "deconstructing" their faith.There are probably things we SHOULD deconstruct ... baggage from our childhood; "sacred cows" and church cultural remnants that should be dispensed with.Here's the problem;Most of the people I know who are "deconstructing" are not RE-constructing.Join us for a series that wrestle…

In today's service we would like to add just one more step to our COMEBACK series, as a way to re-cap, re-affirm, and even ask God to "seal" what He has revealed to us in these days.This is a different kind of service that asks you to not spectate but actively participate. You can participate easily via this podcast as well.Trusting this will be a …
 
STOP SELF ISOLATINGObviously, there are good and important reasons for "Self-isolating" in the midst of a global pandemic.What is becoming spiritually and relationally evident though is that our non-medical self-isolating is having a deleterious effect on our souls.Could it be that is because God has created us for community? Could it be because no…
 
In the early days of this pandemic, we were desperate for information and updates. There was confusion and conflicting messages. Trustworthy and reliable news was at a premium. It wasn't too long before we weren't sure which "voices" we could trust. COVID didn't start this phenomenon but it sure seemed to accelerate it.More than at any point in hum…
 
SEPTEMBER 19, 2021In the early days of this pandemic especially, there was a self-preservation instinct that kicked in for many of us. Perhaps this was best illustrated by the panicked toilet paper buying.Even if you haven't wrestled for hand sanitizer in Walmart or built a fallout shelter in your backyard, there is a real temptation to have a "sel…
 
No, not the cloth or polymer mask you've been wearing in public for the last 18 months. Please keep those on a little bit longer.I'm talking about a deeper kind of inauthentic spiritual mask that we've been more susceptible to in this season.Church, it's time for a comeback.על ידי Jonathan K. Gonyou
 
"Stop Social Distancing"In this kick-off to a new series, we'll look at 5 Biblical Keys to putting the last 18 months behind us.The titles are a little cheeky... Stopping social distancing has nothing to do with keeping 6 feet apart or other wise protocols. There's another kind of social distancing going on that's been deeply destructive. We've end…
 
At NAC's outdoor service in the amphitheater at Fairy Lake in Newmarket, ON we close out our "Cabin Fever" series with the story of the friends and disciples of Jesus who had just witnessed their mentor and teacher... their hope... be murdered and laid in a dark, locked, little room called a "tomb". Now they found themselves in a locked little room…
 
Talk about "Cabin Fever"40 days without food. Alone in the desert. Vulnerable. Tempted by Satan.What can we learn about overcoming temptation from our most perfect role model? Do you secretly think that Jesus overcoming temptation isn't really much of a big deal, because He got to play the "God card"? Join us for some really practical wisdom on an …
 
Today’s service was presented in a different kind of format. As Jonathan delves into the “Cabin Fever” that the prophet Elijah experienced, he separates it into 3 sections followed by an opportunity to respond in song (which for copyright reasons we won’t be including in this podcast, but feel free to seek out these songs)Something is being formed …

Talk about "Cabin Fever"In fact, talk about hitting "rock bottom". But there are some Jonah's in our church here at NAC who have encountered the grace and saving work of God as they cried out to him from the depths...From rock bottom.Along with this message that Jonathan is excited to share, today is chock-full of good stuff including...- A very sp…

Jesus ends this most famous sermon with his application: A story where you can easily place yourself in the role of either the wise or the foolish person. On the surface at least, so much is similar about these two people. The life-altering difference was revealed only when the storm came. Everyone will face storms. The whole world faced the storm …
 
One of the last sentences from Jesus in this most famous sermon is that MANY on that final day of judgment will come to Him having done ministry and done all the "right Christian" works and said the "right Christian" things and Jesus will say "Away from me. I never knew you."Ouch!Is there a more sobering passage in Scripture? It's one thing to be d…
 
By their authentic spiritual "fruit" you will know them... not by the T-shirts they wear, the Billboards they make, the bumperstickers they put on their car. In other words, you can't tell a true follower of Christ by their external trappings. You'll need time and proximity to really discern authenticity and even then Jesus warns of being deceived …
 
Now Jesus begins His application of His sermon on the Mount and He uses the analogy of how the true follower needs to enter through the narrow gate, not the wide one. Often this has been interpreted as a whose "saved" and whose "unsaved" verse. "Heaven" vs. "Hell"... "In" the kingdom and "outside" the Kingdom. In context of what has come before it …
 
It's a statement that's actually been affirmed by almost every religion and was first spoken by Jesus over 2000 years ago. It's known as the "golden rule" but it seems it's been watered down to be understood as the "Do No Harm" rule... in other words, "DON'T treat others how you WOULDN'T want to be treated". But this is a rule worded in the Positiv…
 
So far in the sermon on the mount Jesus has been describing this "Kingdom life"... what a true Spirit-filled, God-follower can look like. He's saying: Being merciful IS POSSIBLE... loving your enemy IS POSSIBLE... not worrying IS POSSIBLE, so if that life appeals to you... if this qualities stir something up in you and make you desirous of them, th…
