Jubilee Sermons



We are a church in Maple Ridge, Canada who love Jesus and are excited to make Him famous. These are our sermons from Sunday gathering, so you can keep up with any messages you may have missed, or to pass them on if they impacted you.


  • Last Things: If They Hate You

    30/05/2021 Duration: 31min

    Passage: John 15:18-16:4. Do we know what it feels like to be hated? Why would the world hate us, anyway? And if they did, how would we respond. Thankfully, we have some examples to go from. 

  • Last Things: Love and Obedience

    23/05/2021 Duration: 31min

    Passage: John 15:9-17. Jesus calls us friends. What does it mean to obey from love? Can we? Will we? Maybe this is where we find the joy we're looking for. 

  • Last Things: Abiding Fruitfulness

    16/05/2021 Duration: 29min

    Passage: John 15:1-8. Jesus is telling his followers how to make it in this world.  Ben brings home the challenge for us to abide in Jesus. This is the way we grow to become fruit bearing followers. 

  • Last Things: A God In and With

    09/05/2021 Duration: 31min

    Passage: John 14:15-31. Today is almost like two mini sermons. One is about how we didn't get left alone. Jesus send His very Spirit to stand alongside us, to dwell with and in us. And then there is all this love and obedience and commands talk. They are connected, and so is this Spirit meant to enable us to live it all. 

  • Last Things: A God Like Jesus

    02/05/2021 Duration: 30min

    Passage: John 14:7-14. What is God really like? Is He angry, judgmental, vindictive? Jesus makes the claim that we can know exactly what God is like by looking at Him. If we believe this, our lives will be transformed to action. 

  • Last Things: A Place and Way

    25/04/2021 Duration: 28min

    Passage: John 14:1-7. Jesus is talking weird again. At least Thomas will ask the question. And for us, weighed down and uncertain, the claim of Jesus to being the way and truth and life, resonates. 

  • Last Things: Love and Betrayal

    18/04/2021 Duration: 30min

    Passage: John 13:18-32. People fail Jesus. Judas, Peter, and of course, us. Jesus commands his disciples and us, to love. He showed us by loving everyone, even those who failed him. And He calls His followers to the same kind of extravagant love. 

  • Last Things: Radical Humility

    11/04/2021 Duration: 30min

    Passage: John 13:1-17. As we begin a new series called "A Few Last Things", we find Jesus in the upper room with his disciples. It's hard to find a modern equivalent to the discomfort of experiencing footwashing, but we'll try our best. The challenge rings out across the ages: a call to radical humility! 

  • Easter Sunday

    04/04/2021 Duration: 29min

    Passage: John 20:24-29. The resurrection story of Thomas gives us great comfort. He struggled, encountered Jesus and moved to belief. And this is our journey as well. A doubter turned willing! Oh, let this also be our story! 

  • Palm Sunday

    28/03/2021 Duration: 22min

    Guest preacher Rob Thiessen unpacks the Triumphal entry as a timely reminder that although things are uncomfortable, usually we don't understand all that God is doing in the moment. 

  • More On Membership

    21/03/2021 Duration: 33min

    Feel free to join in on our Family Meeting. We're talking about steps we're taking toward being our own grown-up church now that the term "Church-Plant" doesn't seem to fit. We're talking about membership and what it means in the Jubilee context. This is Part 2 to the January 19, 2020 podcast on Membership. 

  • Ruth: Redeemer

    14/03/2021 Duration: 31min

    Passage: Ruth chapter 4. We're a lot like these Bible people. Ordinary. Needy. And like them we'll need a redeemer. Someone willing to pay what's needed. These are the lessons Ruth holds for us. And a reminder we can't always see what He's doing. This faithful God, always at work, through the generations. 

  • Ruth: Return

    21/02/2021 Duration: 34min

    Passage: Ruth 1:6-22. Life can be hard. Especially right now. It's hard to see in the moment what God is doing. Our hope is in His faithfulness to be working out His plans and purposes all the time. We apologize that part 1 in the sermon series was not recorded due to a technical error. 

  • The Purpose Myth

    31/01/2021 Duration: 25min

    Passage: John 17:3. "You deserve to be happy" they all say. Everyone. All over. Somehow we've bought into the story that we all deserve to be happy. But what if this belief is driving us to despair and unhappiness? What if there's more to our lives? What does Jesus say about our life purpose? 

  • The Grow Myth

    24/01/2021 Duration: 28min

    Passage: Ephesians 4:15-21. Think you can isolate and still grow as a Christian? Think again. We hear the case for why decapitated and amputated things die. Trust me, it's compelling! 

  • The Easy Myth

    17/01/2021 Duration: 27min

    Passage: Luke 9:23. People often come to faith because they heard God is here to help make everything better. Many of us believe (or at least secretly hope) that this includes a long life of health and wealth. But what about when things are hard? What about in the challenge? What does Jesus say about all this? 

  • The Quick Myth

    16/01/2021 Duration: 30min

    Passage: James 5:7-11. Maybe you were told things move quickly for Christians. Maybe things even did for awhile... but what about when things slow down? What happens in the waiting? Maybe waiting is more Christian than we'd like to admit. It would help to know what to expect. 

  • Fourth Advent: Humans Welcome

    20/12/2020 Duration: 28min

    Passage: Philippians 2:3-7. Real people just like us. That's who's in the nativity story. People who doubted and struggled... and were willing. There's joy in obedience! Warning: This podcast contains video segments that may seem really weird without the video! 

  • Third Advent: Rabble Welcome!

    13/12/2020 Duration: 25min

    Passage: John 3:16-17. It's hard to understand why shepherds would be the first to be invited to the manger scene. Until maybe, we begin to grasp just how much God loves us just as we are. This invitation changes everything! A God who loves! A God who gave! Warning: This podcast contains video segments that may seem really weird without the video!

  • Second Advent: Aliens Welcome!

    06/12/2020 Duration: 23min

    Passage: Ephesians 2:18-20. Maybe you've ever felt like an outside, or a stranger. Maybe your current reality makes you feel alone and separated. During our second Sunday of advent we hear about foreigners in the nativity story. Grace welcomes them and us! Warning: this podcast contains audio sections of video that will not be as exciting without the video.
