This Weekend @ Connexus | October 3, 2010

Here we are on the brink of another great Sunday @ Connexus and we'd love to see you at either of our campuses!!!! Orillia or Barrie.

This week in Barrie and next week in Orillia we are launching “The Great Family Experiment”! So, at the end of the service this week in Barrie and next week in Orillia you will receive your “Great Family Experiment’ Package! It’s an adventure that will take about 90-120 minutes and part of it happens over lunch–so you can get started right away that Sunday, or that week. It was specifically designed for you and your kids or teenagers, with your age and stage in mind. For a bit more details check out this previous post.

Here's what we're teaching this week:


Modern Families | Part Three:  How to Have a Family Fight

Parenting can be a battle between rules and relationships. If you lean too heavily toward relationships, what happens to the rules? Conversely, if you lean too heavily to the rules, the relationship can disintegrate. This week, we’ll look at one factor that can help families manage this perpetual tension.

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


Modern Families | Part Four: Find Your Rhythm

Every family has a rhythm. You don’t have to try to have one…you just have one. Rhythm is critical, because it silently but significantly communicates value and shapes reality. How do you make God part of your family’s every day rhythm in a way that actually doesn’t seem strange or forced?

Service Times: 8:30 -9:40am & 10:00-11:10am | Galaxy Cinema 72 Commerce Park Drive Barrie

    The service topic does not appeal to us. We don’t have little children or teens at home. Prior to thanksgiving, a family time, it would be nice to see the seniors/grandparents/singles have something also. There could have been events for them in the theatres and you have treated us like little kids and given us our own focus.If we come, it will be like watching FRIENDS, where women over 50 and men over 65 are rarely seen.

      Trish…Sorry you feel this way. We’re going to be speaking specifically to empty nesters and to all families in the series wrap up and I think in some way, all of us are impacted by family every day. Regardless, thank you for being part of a church that pioritizes ministry for the next generation.
