Oregon Student Trip 2018

This February, we are taking a group of students to Corvallis, Oregon, where we will connect with our greater Every Nation family at the Student Conference, and then stay on to serve alongside our ENC (Every Nation Campus) family on the Oregon State University campus. We’re excited to experience the presence of God with our extended ENC family, and to see our students grow in confidence as they learn new ways of reaching out to fellow students to talk about God and share their faith.

Please consider partnering with us to support these students as they go! For specific sponsorship, please enter the Student’s Name in the memo field on the giving form.

 

 

 

Corporate Fasting Week

  • Categories: Featured
  • Date published:

Every year we gather together with Every Nation churches around the world to partake in a corporate fast.  This year, our fast is taking place January 8-12, 2018.  

We encourage you to slow down and make space in your calendar to gather together with others during this week, to pray together, listen together and allow God to move in our lives through one another.

This year’s fasting guide is based on the book of Ephesians, and it includes practical advice if this is your first time fasting, as well as daily reflections to focus on while you fast. You can find an online copy of the fasting guide here.

Bible Study

  • Categories: Featured
  • Date published:

Have you ever wondered how to study the Bible?  Where do you start? How do you hear God through scripture? 

Starting  November 22, Bob McNeal will be teaching a Bible Study course bi-weekly in a small group setting. He’ll be teaching on how to dig into the word and hear God through scripture, using an example book study on Ephesians. We’re excited to see what God has in store! 

Email Keeley Baril if you are interested in participating or call 403-397-3301.

 

Bob and Paulette McNeal have been serving as missionaries in Kenya, East Africa, for the last 29 years.  Responding to hunger for Biblical teaching in the local churches in their remote location in Southwest Kenya, they started travelling and holding seminars to instruct in Biblical truths, teaching Pastors to study the Word for themselves. As the demand for seminars rose, it became evident that something more permanent was needed, and God lead them to open Bukuria Bible College (BBC) in 1993. Both Bob and Paulette wrote material and compiled the curriculum for the college, teaching many courses themselves as well as adding others to their team so that they could offer a full course load. To date, they have had 300 students graduate from their main campus with degrees in Theology.  As well, graduates from BBC have gone on to start satellite schools in two other locations, with the hope of two more starting in the near future. Bob and Paulette have seen many lives and communities changed as their students become equipped with tools to study and know the Word of God for themselves, and the ability to share truth and practical application with their churches, families and greater communities. They have seen lives transformed by the love of God, as they discover how to hear him, know his heart, and share that with others.

Bob and Paulette are currently in Calgary due to health issues, but Bob is excited to continue the work God has called them to, here in Canada.  He has a unique burden to see the Church learn how to read and study the Word of God for themselves; to experience freedom and be equipped with a solid Biblical foundation. And he’s excited to share a new study he’s developing with UChurch!

UChurch Summer Schedule

This year, we have felt a moving to keep things simple, make relationships, joy, and celebration a priority, and allow Holy Spirit to move in our church family. For this reason, we are having a very fluid summer; gathering at the university, parks, and back yards, and the summer is just barely starting.  

August 6: Church @ Edworthy Park (Picnic Site 3)

August 13: UofC ST140 

August 20: Be The Church Sunday – no corporate gathering

August 27: UofC ST 140

 

UChurch Summer Celebrations

Joy is a fruit of the Spirit; a spiritual discipline; and choice we must make.

We have to wrestle for our blessing and fight for our joy; we do this through celebrating together as a family.  God created celebrations as a way for us to contend for our joy, and this is what our Sunday gatherings are all about.  

This summer we have been exploring the art of celebration and gathering in an informal way to spend time together, encourage each other, and celebrate.

This week, August 27, 2017, we will be meeting at our usual place & time: University of Calgary, ST 140 at 10:30AM

It’s that time of year again when we take our celebration outside!  

We’re kicking the Summer off with our Annual Family Picnic in Edworthy Park, Sunday, June 25, 2017. Hope you are able to join us for this day of great people, great food and lots of fun games!

Burgers and hotdogs will be provided.  Please bring a side dish to share!  

The party starts at 11:00am in Picnic Sites 4 & 5 (see map below for location of picnic sites)

We need lots of hands to pull off this event, so if you would like to help out, let us know so we can connect you with one of our many activities: setup, games, grilling, cleanup, etc. If you are interested in getting baptized in the river, send us an email.

You can bring outdoor games, instruments, lawn chairs, blankets, umbrellas (for shade), sun screen, bug spray, etc. The river is often high this time of year, so if you do plan on going for a dip, please bring life jackets or flotation devices for your own safety. 

See you in the park!
