Three BIG Things This Weekend @ Connexus

It is another HUGE weekend at Connexus, and given the forecast, I'm thankful all our weekend venues are air-conditioned!  Make sure your friends are ready to join you for what will be a weekend to remember in many ways.

We wrap up God and Sex in Orillia with a moment in the service you don't want to miss and that you haven't seen on-line.

In Barrie, we start a series on doubt called I Doubt It.  If you have friends who question whether God and science are at odds with each other, you don't want to miss this weekend.  The discussion in this clip will get you and your friends asking some intriguing questions as we move into week one of the series!

Finally, Irresistible happens Sunday night at 7:30 at the Rene M. Caisse Theater in Bracebridge. If you know ANYONE in Muskoka who is interested in launching a church they can bring their friends to, tell them about Sunday night.  I'm so looking forward to being there Sunday night to cast vision with Rich Birch about launching Connexus Muskoka. The music is going to be amazing!

Please pray for our communities and region this weekend.  Pray that God would move.  Pray that God would change lives.  Pray that we would hear from God in a powerful way.  Some of us are even fasting and praying on Saturday as we get ready for Sunday.  Maybe you can join us!

If you want the official skinny, here it is:

Orillia Campus | 8:30 and 10:00 a.m.
God and Sex: Part Three – Totally Satisfying Sex

Cosmopolitan aside, is it possible to have completely satisfying sex?   How do married people find sexual fulfillment?  What about singles?  Where does real joy in sex come, whether you’re sexually active or not?

Galaxy Theaters  – 865 West Ridge Boulevard, Orillia


Barrie Campus | 8:30 and 10:00 a.m.
I Doubt It: Part One – I Doubt that God Can Explain Away Science

Do intelligent people actually believe that a personal God created the universe?  Hasn’t science essentially ruled out God?  Is there any evidence for an intelligent designer behind life?  What does the evidence actually say?

Galaxy Theaters  – 72 Commerce Park Drive, Barrie


Irresistible | 7:30 p.m. Bracebridge
What sort of relevant environment would church need to be so we could invite our friends?  Let’s imagine together.

At Connexus we believe the church should be the most irresistible place in
the community because we think it honours God and serves our
communities.  Currently we have locations in Barrie and Orillia. There
is a group of leaders from Muskoka that have asked us to partner with
them to launch a new church right here in Muskoka. This event is going
to be the first step towards that launch. 

The event will have
music, video and a relevant message.  While we
love kids (a lot!) but for this event we will not be hosting our
children’s environments. 

Invite some friends with you who you
think might be interested in learning more about what we need when we
talk about church being irresistible.

    A non-believing friend with a highly scientific mind and atheist beliefs came with us to "I Doubt It" this morning. He was blown away by Carey's message and is coming again!

    He was surprised by the respect, intelligence, and grace that Carey handled this topic with – he didn't expect that from a church. He expected judgment and condemnation for his beliefs and a boring lecture! He didn't expected to get drawn in and engaged.

    That's awesome, Joey! I really enjoyed part 1 of I Doubt It as well… 🙂

    Wow! 'Expelled' looks like a great movie. I've been following the production for a while, and it's great to see it's content being put to good use.

    'Religulous', a so called counter-film, is Bill Maher's take on 'religion' and the effect it has had on the world. Should be interesting. It seems he received more funding than Ben Stein. Big surprise.
