Come on out for an evening of friendly* competition. This is a Christmas tradition, like decorating the tree or burning the turkey. *some people are a little less friendly in the heat of competition The Sunday before Christmas is going to be another fun family Celebration! Afterwards there will be a potluck lunch (bring a main and/or dessert!). This will be Craig and Stacy’s last Celebration before their sabbatical so c’mon out and join us! We want to welcome everyone to join us to worship and celebrate Jesus! Take some time out of the season’s busyness to remember what the season is all about!
It was a busy month! For those who missed it, here’s a recap of what went down in October. Celebration: Craig continued through Mark with Chapters 7 & 8. He and Stacy were also able to share the Word with the body of Christ in Peterborough. Jason and Amanda spoke about Faith, and things that hinder us from walking out in faith. It was a blessing to hear them share some of their own experiences in this area. Carrie shared about the “Feeding Miracles” and tied together the Israelite’s wandering in the desert to Jesus’ teaching on the bread of life. A group was able to spend some time at the Claremont Christmas Bazaar held at the community centre. It was a great chance for us to engage with the community and let people know what’s coming up at Life Church, and what we’re all about. The food drive was another success! We were able to collect lots of food for the local food bank and even got to encourage some people along the way. Food can still be dropped off Sunday if you weren’t able to get your donations in on the 31st. Thanks Claremont!
Hey Life Church and Claremont community! On October 31st, instead of going our for candy, our Life Groups are going to be going door to door for non-perishable foods to help out our local food banks. For Life Groups: Please be at the LC for 6:00. Once we’ve broken up into groups we will be heading off to different parts of the community. For the community: Tell your neighbours, tell your friends! Let’s get the food bank stocked for those in need!
Life family fireside chat at the LC! Come on out at 7:00pm, because that’s where you’ll get the details about where we’re heading in the near future! Sunday Funday; Celebration will be a little bit different this week, but you’ll want to be there! 10am, don’t miss it. Life groups are starting again on Wednesdays! If you’re a part of our church family, you’re a part of a life group (if you’re not part of our body, you can be part of a life group too!). Get in touch with your life group leaders for details, or Craig if you don’t know who your leader is!
Jonny Murray is preaching! Anyone who has heard him speak at Life or elsewhere knows that he always brings a thought-provoking word. Dr. Lawson Murray, President of Scripture Union Canada, will be speaking to us on the premise of his new book Bible Engagement Basics Jacob Wilson will be bringing his ceaseless energy and passion to preach!
Life groups are starting up for the fall! But before we break out into our groups we’re having our annual kick off! This is going to be a fun time to introduce the new season, give you details about the when’s, where’s, and who’s. Oh, and for added encouragement to come, there will be snacks.
It’s September again. That means school, cooler weather, and… Kidz Company! That’s right, we’re back! If you (or your kids) are in grade 1-6, your Thursday nights could be a lot more exciting. Games, crafts and stories! Adventures, learning and excitement! Kidz Company is a night you and your friends won’t want to miss!
Just a reminder that Life Groups will be starting again after our Week of Prayer. If you have any questions contact your Life Group leaders.
Ignite’s annual inferno weekend will be January 6-8 this year. There is no cost. Come and start the year with prayer and fellowship as we get ready to take on another year! For more details contact Jacob.
It’s that time of year again. Advent, Christmas, Holidays, and of course, the annual Life Group ChristmOlympics. Wednesday the 14th, come with your game face on.
