This Weekend @ Connexus | December 6th

Wow! We're in such a great season at Connexus. Can you feel it? Excited for what's been and all that's ahead.

This is a great weekend to bring a friend – we're celebrating our second anniversary in Orillia (there's cake!) and launching The Story of Hope in Barrie. If you know someone who has felt excluded from church or needs hope, we've got a great weekend lined up at our campuses. Tell them about it and take them out for coffee or lunch after the service!

Some notes:

Giving Away Christmas
Thanks to everyone who has jumped into Giving Away Christmas! Details are here and if you missed the message you can find it here or at iTunes (search "connexus church"). It's not too late to jump in. Giving Away Christmas partner cards will be at our campuses this weekend.

Christmas Eve
You coming? It's going to be fun and engaging. Details are online here. Also, this weekend, we'll be giving you a card you can give to your friends with details and maps to our Christmas Eve locations. Need lots of copies? Don't worry, you can pick up a stack!

Say Hi
One favour – on Sunday after the service, can you introduce yourself to one person you don't know? We're just trying to make sure that everyone gets included in the great relationships being built at Connexus. So…after the service…say hi to someone you don't know. Offer to get them a coffee…it's organic fair trade, and it's free.

Now, here are the details on Sunday morning. Excited!

Barrie Campus

Story of Hope | Part One: Not What You Expected
Disappointed in life? Most of us are. If God seems to promise so much, how come he seems to deliver so little? Where exactly does the Christian understanding of hope come in? How do you keep hoping if you keep being disappointed? Join us as we explore how to place your hope where it matters most.

Service Times: 8:30-9:40 am & 10:00-11:10 am | Galaxy Theaters Barrie 72 Commerce Park Dr.

Orillia Campus

Party for Two
Parties are always best when there are lots of people in the room. But many churches throw a party for only one type of person – people who already go the church. Jesus was completely different. So was the early church. As we celebrate our second anniversary at Connexus, find out why we are committed to throwing a party for a much wider group of friends, and why this includes you. (Plus come celebrate with us!)

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

    Hi Carey,
    Just a follow-up to us introducing ourselfs on Sunday after early service.
    We have enjoyed the music and the message’s at Connexus and look forward to the up and coming services in the weeks to come. I will continue to encourage the people I know that don’t attend church to meet up with us at service. Untill next time, Paul and Anne, Andrew and Michelle.

      Paul…Really great meeting you and your family yesterday. So glad you are catching the reason we do this so early on in your time with us! Thanks for making an investment in your friends and coworkers who don’t yet attend church.

      Thanks for the encouragement!
