Breakfast in the Park

  • Categories: Featured
  • Date published:

This Sunday, July 15 at 10am, join us at Edworthy Park (site 3) for a pancake breakfast.

We will provide pancakes, sausages, bacon, and syrup… all you need is a chair or blanket to sit on, your friends and family (invite your neighbours!) and  bring your favourite pancake topping (other than syrup) to share.  We have the park booked until 3pm so feel free to hang around for a while.

See you at the park!

“Be The Church” Sunday

 

On July 1, 2018 we will forego our official Sunday gathering at the UofC, to embrace simply being the church (instead of going to church).

We encourage you to gather together in your own terms; have fun; do something you love; live life well; be sons and daughters. 

Inspiration for Be The Church Sunday,  brought to you by Steve Myatt’s video: The New Way

 

 

Just to clarify, there will NOT be a Sunday service at the University of Calgary on July 1, 2018.

 

Annual UChurch Picnic

  • Categories: Featured
  • Date published:

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 24, 2018. Hope you are able to join us for this day of great people, great food and lots of fun games!

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

We’ll start 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!

 

 

Becoming Love(d)

  • Categories: Featured
  • Date published:

Now I’ve received his love, how do I live this?

For anyone who’s been on a journey of receiving the Father’s love, the question often presents itself – how then do I live? As love pours in, the woundedness that comes out of our hearts to be dealt with is often confusing and challenging. How do we go beyond just receiving love, and move into a place of living it out in our daily lives?

Becoming Love(d) is a 3-day gathering for those wanting to deeply explore the practicality of the challenges that present themselves when we open ourselves up to receive love, and the realities of living life while being loved.  Previous attendance of at least one ‘A’ School is strongly recommended.

Mark Head (International Director of FatherHeart Ministries) will be joining us at Entheos Retreat Centre July 16 – 18th for a time of teaching & practical application, open discussion and the chance to ask questions and share from our personal experiences, and of course some time of ministry. We’re looking forward to some rich time of connection as we share in this adventure!

Some themes we will be looking at during the 3 days together:

  • A focus on revealing things like ‘how is our heart changed by love in this revelation’
  • Processing pain; when love pours in sometimes pain or other things begin to pour out. How can we engage or disengage from this process?
  • Communing with the Father; exploring together ways to meaningfully engage with the Father day to day and finding the ways that are unique to each one of us.
  • The purposes of God; how we can grow in love through failure, relational breakdown & disappointment
  • The practical application of heart forgiveness in our daily lives
  • Our on-going need for comfort
  • Becoming Love(d) – what is it to become a manifestation of love

Monday night we’ll begin with some time for connection and sharing, Tuesday will be a full day, and we’ll break shortly after lunch on Wednesday. Schedule is still being finalized, so stay tuned for more details.

BE READY for the next generation

 
 

Anyone following the headlines today will know that it is becoming more difficult for Christians in Canada to hold on to their Christian beliefs without it costing them something. And the challenge is only going to be that much greater for the next generation.

More than ever, Christians need to be ready to navigate through the challenges thrown at them by the culture – but not only for themselves. They must also be ready to protect others, especially the next generation, from the false and destructive ideas that are so widespread today.

Be Ready 2018 is a conference aimed at equipping Christians of all generations to represent Christ with confidence, and to uphold their Christian convictions in the public square with gentleness and respect.

Keynote Speakers: Josh McDowell, Sean McDowell, Scott Klusendorf

 
 
 

Good Friday 2018

Dr. Brian Miller: Evidence for Design in Nature

Advances in physics, biology, and other science disciplines are increasingly pointing to evidence that the universe and life are the products of intelligent design. For instance, physicist and origins expert Paul Davies has argued that any fundamental understanding of the origin of life must start with the origin of information, and internationally recognized organic chemist James Tour has argued that all theories for the origin of life are completely implausible. Dr. Miller will speak about this growing body of evidence for intelligent design in nature, and he will describe why leading biologists are rejecting the idea that the appearance of design in biology can be explained by Darwinian evolution. Dr. Miller has a B.S. in physics from MIT and a Ph.D. in physics from Duke University.

Dr. Brian Miller: Communicating the Christian Faith

Dr. Brian Miller, from the Origins Institute, will discuss how to respectfully explain the Christian faith to friends, family, and coworkers. He will also describe how to handle common questions and to present an intellectual defense for its truth.
