Hello everyone! We hope you had a wonderful weekend. If you missed the service on Sunday, you can watch it HERE!
We want EVERYONE to come to church and are requesting that you continue to register. Please click HERE to let us know if you'll be attending this week. And as a friendly reminder, the PHO recommends that anyone in an ‘at risk’ sector of society carefully consider if attending is a good option at this time.
Our Annual General Meeting is coming up this Sunday, September 26th, at 11:30 am. There is no need to register for the meeting if you intend to come in person. However, if you would like to participate online via zoom, please register by clicking on the link HERE.
Vibrancy, purpose, intimacy, challenge – growing deep with God is a beautiful part of the Christian life, and engaging in good, Christian spiritual activity is one of the ways that God draws us deeper.
- Stuck between Sundays? Looking for a spark to help you engage with God? Join Pastor Holly for Engage: Between Sundays... an opportunity to look at engaging with God in a variety of spiritual disciplines. This time is designed to enter in or dive deeper in the transformative work He is doing in our lives. Check Facebook and the website at 7pm Wednesday evenings, you are welcome to join me! Feel free to connect with me to chat further. I would love to hear what God is up to in your life.
- Starting Oct 4 and the first weeks of the following months, space will be provided to engage in the practice of fasting & prayer. Join Pastor Holly for the week of Oct 4-8 in a fast over lunches (12:30-1:00pm). If this is new for you, that’s OK! There will be Scriptures to read, reflection and prayer items provided. Or come as you are with what is on your heart. You are welcome.
- At CAC, we seek to provide Engagement opportunities for each one of us, and right now, we have brilliant opportunities to both Grow Deep AND Reach Wide in Children’s, Integration, and Youth ministries. Servanthood is a wonderful act of worship. Seeing God work in you, through you, and around you is a rich blessing. To find out more about our volunteering opportunities, please contact Pastor Anna here, Pastor Noel here, or Pastor Joe here.
If you’ve been away for a while or you’re new, we want to make it easy for you to take NEXT STEPS in engaging in the life and rhythm of CAC. We believe that people grow deep with Jesus by being encircled by others who are about Jesus.
- We would love to help you find a small group that’s a good fit for you. Email Pastor Noel at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
- Maybe you're curious about leading a small group in the future? Then this event is for you! You are invited to join the following ZOOM on Leading a Small Group well:
Dates & Times:
Wednesdays | September 22, 29 and October 6 | 7-7:45 pm.
Please email Pastor Noel at email@example.com to receive a Zoom link to join the refresher.
We believe that true spiritual life involves a personal encounter with God – to come to believe that He exists. From there we realize that we need a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, who by his death and resurrection has dealt with our fatal sin problem. Then we realize that living the daily Christian life requires an ongoing encounter with the Holy Spirit inside of us.
