Why This Sunday is More Important Than Our Grand Opening
We have just come through one of the best seasons ever at Connexus church.
We relaunched our Orillia location with some amazing upgrades, and last weekend we opened our Mills Road facility. As you may have heard, over 1500 people attended Connexus last weekend…the highest Sunday attendance we’ve ever seen. And so many were people who don’t regularly attend church.
But as AWESOME as all of that is…THIS weekend is even more important than last weekend.
Because all the changes in the last month have a single purpose: to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus. That mission has just got started at a whole new level.
So this weekend, we’ll continue the stories that God started writing over the last month and some that he’s been writing for a few years.
PLUS, not everyone made it out last weekend. Some of you invited friends only to have them not be able to make it. We will see new people who intended to make it to the Grand Re-Opening in Orillia or the Grand Opening in Barrie every Sunday for months to come.
All of which makes this Sunday more important than last Sunday.
So…who are you praying for? Who are you inviting?
All of this is just beginning. 🙂
Here’s what’s up this weekend at our locations.
Pursue[d] — Part 2 —
My Thy Kingdom Come | Carey Nieuwhof
Prayer is often a battle between two kingdoms—yours and God’s. And let’s be honest, it’s hard to focus on God’s Kingdom when your life is filled with problems. Jesus shows us a practical way to put God’s kingdom ahead of ours every time we pray.
9.00 and 10.30 am | 20 Mills Road, Barrie
Pursue[d] — Part 1 — Just Push Pray | Carey Nieuwhof
So what’s the purpose of prayer? Is it to get God to do what we want him to do? Or is it something else? Many people see prayer as a button to be pushed…but what if it’s so much more than that?
9.00 and 10.30 am | Galaxy Cinemas, Orillia
See you Sunday. It’s going to be incredible!
