This Sunday at our Campuses

Barrie | Galaxy Cinema – 72 Commerce Park Dr. Barrie | 8.30 & 10.00am

Born This Way | Part Six – Wait for It :: Carey Nieuwhof
If you took a poll, almost everyone would prefer their lives to be ruled by virtues like love, joy, peace and goodness.  But how do you get more of that in your life?  The bible gives us exceptional insight into that.  We’ll wrap up the series exploring how to accomplish what we all want to accomplish.

Orillia | Galaxy Cinema – 865 West Ridge Blvd. Orillia | 8.30 & 10.00am (Children's programs offered at 10.00am)

Part Five ::  No Surprises :: Carey Nieuwhof
More than once in your life, you’ve likely been surprised about where you ended up.  You didn’t intend to be where you were, but you ended up there anyway.  How does that happen?  The bible gives us surprising insight into how we end up with the life we’re living and  – more importantly – how to change course.

    Hi Carey,
    Chris Sorlie here. I’m a Worship Leader at Bethel Community Church here in Barrie. We’ve met a few years ago. I “take a holiday” every now and then and come to hear you preach! Always enjoy your sermons. I never knew you ride a bike. What kind is it? (carbon fiber I trust!) I ride a recumbent. A lot slower than your bike no doubt. Probably a bit more comfortable! I prayed for almost two years before buying my bike basically because I was concerned about Idolatry (Gal 5:20) the very passage you dealt with today! I tend to “get into” things at times but I’ve had the bike for a couple of years and all is well.
    Keep up the good work!

      Thanks Chris…You have a great heart to really look into idolatry that deeply….good thought. Thanks for the encouragement. We love what God is doing through Bethel!
