This is one of those weekends you don't want to miss.  In Orillia, we're wrapping up Andy Stanley's Losing Your Religion…an amazing series that helps people sort through what faith really is.  In Barrie, we start a brand new series on…are you ready…social media and faith called Like Me.
It's a great weekend to bring your friends.  Andy has an amazing closing message for Losing Your Religion in Orillia.  Then this weekend in Barrie and next weekend in Orillia, Like Me is going to start with a bang:
  • You really don't want to be late for the series start of Like Me.  The band opens with something that's going to be so much fun, and so surprising.  If you come early, we're even going to let the fun begin five minutes before the services starts.
  • We want to help you nurture your friendships and create a great environment to invite your friends into.  So we're giving away a trip to Great Wolf Lodge and sharing gift cards you can use to take your friends out to lunch after church.  For more info click here.
  • We're showing baptism stories.  It brings into focus why we do what we do, and what happens when God intersects our lives with his love.
Here are the details:

Like Me | Week One:  All About Me (Carey Nieuwhof)

You can publish a lot of information about yourself on line.  Between your profile, your photos and a constant stream of updates about what you’re up to lurks a question: does social media fuel narcissism?  What can you do to guard your soul against your online presence being all about you?

Losing Your Religion | Part Four: Unfair And Uncomfortable (Andy Stanley)

Every religion recognizes our failures. In fact, we can label our failures as “mistakes,” but there’s no denying that everyone falls short. Maybe it’s unfair that we don’t measure up, but it’s true. Maybe it’s uncomfortable that we needed help to get out of our mess, but it’s true. The reality is this – we live in a broken world, and we’re a part of it. So what did God do about it?

Service Times: 8:30–9:40am & 10:00-11:10am | Galaxy Cinema 865 West Ridge Blvd. Orillia

    I attended Connexus on Sunday, November 14, 2010 with my friend, Joanne Kyte and my 11 year old daughter, Kathleen Roe.

    I have been a member of Essa Road Presbyterian Church for 13 years but since losing our minister two years ago have not been happy with the service there. I have spent most of 2010 looking for a new church and have visited six of them (mostly Presbyterian ones) in Barrie and Baxter.

    I was very impressed with the service this morning and with Carey’s message – very relevant to the times we live in esp. with two teenage boys of my own at home.

    I will probably be back to Connexus in the future if Kathleen keeps being interested in it.

    I attended Connexus for the first time today. I accompanied my daughter and her family. My experience there was unexpected and I found it to be very different from any other church that I have attended in all my 66 years. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The people were great, very friendly and welcoming. My daughter took me around all the different environments. I could not believe how organized everything is and how much it had to offer kids of all ages. I loved the music and I was amazed at how Carey was able to tie the message about social media into the bible. I was able to speak to Carey after the service and it was a pleasure to meet him. I am definitely looking forward to my next visit!
