Three Key Announcements

–>So as our team gets read to ramp up for the first full, official day of working full time for Connexus tomorrow, we have three cool announcements to launch us into our month of launch preparation.

First, we have a logo.  I know, this is anti-climatic, because the logo has been up on the blog for a day now (look up).  But I felt we should announce that it was official.  So, there it is. Ta da. I feel better now.

Second, we have a slogan.  After all the submissions, we went with:

                            Real life…simplified

You'll find our teaching team will focus heavily on applying what God wants us to do in real life in a way that is simple, but not simplistic.  I think just about everyone is into simplifying their lives. Funny thing is:  so is God.  Spiritual things are not theoretical, they are practical — for real life.  We'll teach it that way.

Third announcement.  Orillia is going to launch with two services (8:30 and 10:00 a.m.)!  We were so amazed at the turn out at both the Barrie and Orillia launch meetings, that we have decided to prepare for two Sunday services at both locations. 

Much more to come.  And starting tomorrow, Nadine Russell, Rich Birch, Matt Fox, Cindy Morris, Pat Dryburgh, Brian Hughes and I go to work full time as the staff for Connexus, and we look forward to partnering with you for an amazing November and an even greater December.  Thanks for your partnership and prayers.  Fasten your seat belts….

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Connexus leadership team as you begin this new chapter! Thank you for stepping away from something comfortable to pursue a call from God which must seem daunting and frightening but which will give back to so many who need to discover Jesus and his love.

    I am so awed and amazed by the Faith that the leadership is showing us. You all are stepping out of the boat as patrick said in His last message and God will be with you. Our family all 6 of us are excited about the opportunities Connexus brings to reach people with God's message. Thanks for taking this step of faith for us.

    I'm sure we would all love to invite friends and family to the Big Launch of Connexus Community Church on December 2. It would make it easier if we had some type of "Launch Information Card" on hand to give to our neighbours and friends in the area. Do you have anything like this made up or are you preparing something to hand out to newcomers? It would be really helpful as an invitation and as a reminder of dates, times and locations where Connexus will meet. Thanks for all you're already doing!
