What do we focus on?
This is where we hope to plan events that lead to the development of friendships. This is the most ‘basic’ aspect of our focus, but it is crucial in developing deeper relationships with both each other and with God! Once a month we eat (free!!) dinner together by meeting at 6:30 and then playing a game. This is a perfect night to invite friends!
Once a month worship and teach nights. (7-9 pm)
Our theme for the year is BE VIBRANT. This is coming from Jesus’ promise of full life in John 10:10: “I have come so that you may have life to the fullest.”
We want to reach others with the truth and love of God. We plan events that will intentionally reach our community, especially the University Students, mostly with offering free food! We host Pancake Breakfasts once a semester and serve our University Students in their last week of classes. We also run a Parking pass BBQ to bless our University students with some parking passes (and food!) at the church in September. Part of our outreach events also include our “service nights” that happen twice a year.
“And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the EQUIPPING of the saints for the work of service, to the BUILDING UP of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13
Equip Nights: Once a month we dive into a different topic in a “coffee house” style night. We meet in the foyer and go through topics such as: learning to read your bible, deepening your prayer life, managing your finances in a biblical way, etc.
Bible Study: This year we are going to have a Men’s small group Bible Study and a Women’s small group Bible study. Our Women’s Bible study meets on Tuesday Nights at 6:30pm. They are studying 1 & 2 Corinthians this year. For the address of where they are meeting – e-mail Justine! Our men’s bible study is going to study Philippians this year. TBA when and where they will be meeting.
Young Adults Retreat: October 27-29. We are heading out to Crowsnest Lake Bible Camp for the weekend, diving deeper into our topic of “Be Vibrant”, hanging out together and deepening our friendships as well as setting aside time for homework, reading, hiking, silence – whatever you need! Cost is $85.00 per person.
