WHY YOU NEED TO JOIN US IN BEING FOR OUR CITIES
In the cities of Barrie and Orillia, we’re surrounded by people who often feel like life is harder than it should be...that life is against them.
- Never have people in our cities been so connected yet so alone.
- Never have people in our cities been so rich yet so poor.
- Never have they had so much access to information but felt more personally lost
- Never have families looked more together and been in more pain.
200,000 people in our cities don’t know the hope of Jesus Christ. They struggle to battle as if life is against them.
Every day your friends and neighbours feel like life is against them, and in some cases God is against them.
We need to jump into action and do something about this!
We believe that…
People won’t know Jesus is FOR them if they don’t know that we are FOR them.
What if our church was known as being FOR people? What if we were known as being FOR our cities?
WHAT DOES THIS LOOK LIKE FOR ME?
Over the next 16 months we want you to join us in committing to being FOR our cities in the following ways...
Ultimately this is about people, and our passion and commitment to introduce them to the hope of Jesus no matter what it takes – by creating churches that unchurched people love to attend, and leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
Imagine if our church became known as being FOR the cities of Barrie and Orillia as we gather and as we go?
What if everyone in our city knew that the people Connexus are FOR them every day of the week - wherever and whenever?
What if people knew that when they need someone in their corner, that they can walk through our doors on Sunday and there are people who are FOR them?
What if Connexus as an organization was known as being FOR our city as we partner with those working to help the vulnerable in our city who need?
People in our cities will know that Jesus is FOR them when they know that we are FOR them.
