Jesus spent considerable time with the Father. Throughout the gospels we see Him going off early, or finding a quiet place to pray. This level of intimacy allowed Jesus to say that “the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise.” John 5:19. When Jesus ascended to heaven, he sent His Holy Spirit and we too are welcomed into this same intimacy with God that He has.
At Via Vancouver, we’re committed to spending time in His presence. We gather together regularly as a community for times of worship and prayer. We make space for His presence, and we aren’t in a hurry to ‘move on’. As individuals and as a community we’re committed to making a priority of the living and active presence of God in our daily lives.
We walk this passion out in the following ways:
- Gathering together weekly to worship through word and the sacrament
- Monthly Worship & Prayer evenings
- Incorporating prayer and worship in every aspect of church life, including Via Kids
