See you this Sunday, October 26th, 10:18:27am @ 89 Colborne Street!

act out #13: no playing favourites

The cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ is more important than cultural constructs.

This Sunday, August 24th, Josh Lyon speaks on Acts 10:1-48. The Church crosses racial divide in bringing the good news to earth. Is this something we are called to do in this modern age? Do we sacrifice our comfort and identity for the sake of the Gospel?

Come reflect on these questions with us! See you, 10:15am at 89 Colborne St.

act out: picnic at Skelly Park

Poster for "Act Out: Lessons from the Early Church" SeriesOn the third Sunday of August, we continue with our “Act Out” series… outdoors-style!

We’ll begin by gathering at 10:10am at Next Church to sing some tunes, and listen to a short vignette that summarizes our learning to date in Acts. After that, we will head to Skeleton Park (aka McBurney Park) for our potluck picnic including… “acting out” in the neighbourhood by cleaning up the streets on our way to the park, bringing sidewalk chalk etc. to the park to share with our neighbours. Bring lots of food to share – preferably salads and snacky finger foods! Out of our grateful hearts, we share what we have (food and stories) to all.

Remember to be weather-prepared and bring your own plates, blankets, cutlery, serving utensils and cups/water bottles for the potluck. It will be goooood.

act out #9

We are still in the middle of our series, “Act Out: Lessons from the Early Church”. This Sunday, July 27th, Thomas Peters will speak on Acts 8:4-25.  What does sharing the gospel with people with whom we are uncomfortable look like? How is the church empowered to do just that? Hope you can join us in this journey.
