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!
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 …
We have entered the season of Lent in the Church. Lent began today (Ash Wednesday) and goes through to Thursday, March 29 (Maundy Thursday). It leads us with Christ to the night he was betrayed. During this time we’re encouraged to: give up, give to, gain from. Give up (fasting): food, certain comforts, media, etc. Give to: blessing those with need. Gain from: sustained in our time spent walking with Jesus. The Apostle Paul said in Philippians, “I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.” (Phil. 3:10-11)
The Claremont Winter Carnival starts this Friday (February 2) and runs until Sunday February 11. Check out the schedule below and connect with Claremont Community on Facebook for ongoing details and events. We’ll be hosting events at the LC on Sunday (4), Wednesday (6) and Friday (11). Hope to see you out!
Hi everyone! By now you should have received an email from your Life Group leader(s) about tonight. We are back on with Life Groups. If you aren’t a part of a part of a Life Group or want to know more about what Life Groups are, just ask! Most of our church family are a part of one and can fill you in, so… ask away! We’re looking forward to seeing our groups again!
January 8-12, 7-8:30 each night we will have guided times of prayer. Local, global, personal and corporate; we will be seeking God’s heart for the days, months, and year ahead. We want to encourage you to fast this week as well if you are able: from food, media, or other things. Let’s be ready and press into God together!
For those who are participating in Word Studies: James, and those who are unable to join us Sunday nights but would like to study this book on their own time, you can get a free devotional study from Southland Church: Southland Church Devotional Resources.
