Can you give us a hand with something today? We need to ensure that everyone who might potentially want to be connected with Connexus gets the following vital information facts. Can you pass this around to the people in your circles? Don’t worry about people hearing the same thing over and over – at this point we need to ensure that everyone hears this information multiple times! Please pass the word on!
The questions have started to flood in – people are asking how they can help and what our next steps are. Can you help us get the word out about these two public information meetings? These are vitally important as we gather people together to talk about what the future looks like at Connexus and to talk about how each of us can help. We are hosting two identical information meetings – one in Barrie and one in Orillia to make it easier for people to attend one of them. Please pass on the word!
Barrie Information Meeting – October 20th – 10 am – Galaxy Cineplex
Orillia Information Meeting – October 27th – 10 am – Galaxy Cineplex

How can we help?
We have had multiple requests for how people can help – what a great community that is stepping up to the challenge ahead of us! There are three ways that you can jump in immediately to help:
Prayer: Please take some time to pray every day for the transition in the coming weeks. You can use this blog as a good place to start your prayers.
Volunteer: Every team that we have today at Trinity is going to be needed to replicated in Connexus. Plus we are adding a number of new teams that we don’t have today. (Environment set up teams, video teams, children’s check in teams.) Frankly . . . we need everyone to step up and help. Be thinking today how you might volunteer. We’ll be asking at the information meetings on the 20th and 27th.
Giving: We are in need of raising a significant amount of capital start up resources above and beyond our weekly offering. This equipment will allow us to host fantastic experiences for our friends and family in the coming years. All of us have the opportunity to contribute to this vital part of our story in the coming weeks. Now is a great time to begin to pray and think about how you to contribute on this side.
We’re living in history making times! I really do believe that in years to come people are going to look back at where we are at right now and wish they were here. We have been given a rare gift in our opportunity to be a part of Connexus. God has given us this great opportunity. Let’s do our part in this launch and leave the rest up to God!
Thank you for helping us get the word out. Let us know if you think there is other bits of information you feel that everyone needs to hear . . .
