I am SO excited about this coming weekend. There were some good crowds at Connexus last weekend (we ran out of welcome packs at our Orillia Campus!). In fact, we're going to ask some of our 10:00 a.m. Barrie people if they can move to the 8:30 time slot where there's still room to grow (is that you – could you come to 8:30 this weekend)?
But more than that, there are stories being written. On Wednesday I was at my new gym when a woman came up and introduced herself. She's been attending our Barrie Campus and it was a first venture back to church for her in years. I was so encouraged to hear some of her story. She'll be back, along with many others who are discovering who Jesus is for the first time.
Who are you going to invite with you to Connexus this weekend? You can use our evite to invite them, or just pick up the phone and call. It's going to be a great weekend!
a growing relationship – part two: practical teaching – It’s one thing to know a lot about weightlifting and another thing to actually lift weights. It’s one thing to know a lot about nutrition and another thing to eat healthy. Similarly, it’s one thing to know a lot about the Bible and another thing to actually live out what it teaches. That’s why the Christian life isn’t just about knowledge. It’s when our acts of faith intersect with God’s faithfulness that our faith grows. From Jesus’ parable of the wise and foolish builders, we discover that hearing and learning are not enough. The value is in the application, because, in the end, it’s obedience that makes all the difference.

a growing relationship – part three: providential relationships – If you are like most people, you can’t tell your life story without referencing people who played significant roles along the way. The same is true of your faith story. In this third installment of a growing relationship, Carey explains how God uses providential relationships to grow our faith in surprising ways.
