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.
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:

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?

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?

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
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.
