I’m so excited. For the first time this weekend, we get to gather as Connexus Comunity Church on a Sunday morning. It’s a "insider" event (we’re not open yet), but it’s still exciting.
It happens at 10:00 a.m. at the Galaxy Cinema in Barrie. And it’s a gathering for all people who have volunteered to help or want to volunteer at EITHER campus (Orillia campus people please attend too). We’ll pray together, cast vision, train and UpStreet kids get their own theatre where they’ll watch a private screening of the Bee Movie while their parents and older siblings train (hey, serving at a church launch can be a family affair!) Even if you’ve never served before, here’s your opportunity. It’s our orientation gathering because just ten days from now we do a soft-launch in Barrie with real "practice" services Sunday morning, and then on the 25th we soft-launch Orillia. Each campus gets two weeks of soft-launch before the grand openings December 2nd in Barrie and December 9th in Orillia. Folks, it’s almost here!
I’d love for you to spread the word in the next 24 hours to everyone in your address book who you think might want to help us launch Connexus. It would help us greatly if you could call or email friends and let them know about it. We’ve already got many people we know who are helping — but actually others we’ve never met before have emailed or shown up at events ready to serve. Amazing. You can sign up for the first time on Sunday, too. We will welcome all the help we can get, and there’s defnitely room for you. So….please go viral and spread the word to people reminding them about this.
Plan to arrive by 9:45 a.m. so we’re good to go at 10 sharp. For more details on Sunday, click here and jump to the Connexus blog.
