Some Fun for Friends (and a Grand Prize)

At the heart of life is relationship – a relationship with God, and relationships with friends and family.

You've heard us say it (and live it) week in a week out: we love it when people invite their friends to Connexus.  We love it when people interact with each other and have meaningful conversations. It's why we started the church.  Over the next month, we'd like to help with that in a very specific way.

We start a brand new series called Like Me on November 14th in Barrie and November 21st in Orillia.  It's all about where relationships are being impacted by social media.  We'll look at what social media and life on line is doing to friendship, relationship and faith.  We'd love for you to bring your friends to the series…and we'd like to make that more fun.

During the series, we're doing three things:

  • We're give away gift cards to local restaurants that you can pick up in the foyer.  We hope you'll head out after the service and treat the friend you brought to lunch, on us.   Each gift card will give you $50 toward lunch or dinner.
  • We're giving away a grand prize $500 gift voucher to Great Wolf Lodge during the series to a first time attender.  Because some of the best conversations we have around here also happen on line, you and your friends can enter to win by posting a comment on the blog.  Your comment is your ballot to win.  You can “vote” on your friend's behalf or they can comment personally.  We'll make the draw during the series.  Stay tuned for details!
  • We'd love for you to interact with other Connexus folks and the wider community online.  Bring your phones to church and leave them on…we'll twitter, text and facebook each other during the series…yet another way to foster friendships.

We've really loaded up this series with some fun stuff.  Don't be late on the first Sunday.  You probably won't believe your eyes when you see what our band is going to do.  Plus, we're doing some fun stuff pre and post service.

So if you've been thinking about inviting someone…now is the time.  We'll do everything we can to help and make it a great experience for our friends!

    So you are going to give everyone who brings a friend lunch?

      Great question. I guess we’ll see, won’t we? We have a number of gift cards at each campus…I hope they last!
