Celebration on September 3 will be held at Willow Springs for our Life increase day. We won’t be at the church building. Please let us know if you will be coming so we can plan for food!
This Sunday we are planning to be on the side lawn again for Celebration. Please bring a lawn chair, some water, and we’re planning to have communion together (so bring a piece of bread and some juice too). We will pray, worship, and dive deeper into what it means to be Christ followers in these days. We’ll also be Zooming for those who can’t make it in person.
With many churches reopening their buildings for worship, you might be asking, “what about Life Church?”
Family Sunday, This Sunday! Children will be upstairs for the whole celebration. Come ready to party and hear about some exciting things people in the body are up to this year!

Good Friday at 10am we will meet at Claremont United to walk the Cross to our building. There will be Stations of the Cross along the way, with a time of singing, reflection and thanksgiving once we arrive. Invite your friends and family to this meaningful time that centres on the suffering and sacrifice of Christ. Easter Morning: a special time with Daniel (a man of God who has been completely gripped by the grace of God through Jesus Christ!) come and hear his story! 6:30am – Sunrise Service at Duffins Creek conservation area (Conc. 7 and Westney Rd). Daniel will be sharing part of his testimony, and then we will have breakfast with the other churches at Mt. Zion United. 10am – Daniel will be bringing the message of the Resurrection to us…you won’t want to miss it! Daniel will be a huge encouragement to your faith! A new commandment… I’m so looking forward to walking the Cross on Friday; stopping to contemplate the steps of Jesus, and the burden of our sin that he carried and bore for us. Maybe you’ve been reading the scriptures around Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, the events that took place, and the people that interacted …
This advent we’re going to be taking a closer look at the amazing gift we’ve been given through Jesus. Let’s stop settling for second best. Let’s take a closer look at what it means to be measured by the manger.
