U of C closed for the holidays

  • Categories: Featured
  • Date published:

The University of Calgary will be closed from December 22, 2018 to January 2, 2019. As such, there will NOT be a church gathering during this time.

Our first Sunday back after the holidays will be on January 6th, 2019 and it will mark the start of our corporate fasting week (learn more).

Merry Christmas and we will see you in the new year!

 

Christmas Service

 

Our annual Christmas service is taking place on December 16 at our usual spot (UofC ST140 at 10:45AM). 

We’ll be singing Christmas carols, eating tasty treats, and I hear the kids are preparing a surprise for everyone.

We will have some cookies and snacks but bring your favourite holiday treat to share.

Fasting Week 2019

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 7-11, 2018.  

We invite 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.

The Every Nation 2019 fasting guide is titled Great Faith, and it includes practical advice if this is your first time fasting, as well as daily reflections to focus on while you fast.  In addition, UChurch will be providing supplementary material that reflects upon what God has been doing within our UChurch family and what we have been hearing from him during our monthly intercession time.

Please note that our monthly intercession gathering will be held during the fasting week, on January 9th. Save the date.

This Weekend @ UChurch

SONSHIP CONFERENCE

This weekend, UChurch will be hosting the Sonship Conference at Immanuel Church. This will be a full weekend for our church family so we will not be gathering on Sunday morning at UofC as we usually do.

As always, we encourage you to get together with others from our church family and be in community. 

 

PROCESSING THE WOMEN’S RETREAT

For the ladies, we are hosting a Women’s Retreat Debrief on Sunday morning. God did a lot of things for/through the women last weekend at the retreat, and as such we feel like there is a lot to unpack and it is always better to do that together. Having said that, we feel that whatever was birthed last weekend is for everyone in our family (and the greater body of Christ), not just for the ladies that were at the retreat. 

If you are a woman and you want to join us in unpacking what God is doing in our midst, please come this Sunday and participate in our debrief, wether you were able to come to the retreat or not.

WHEN: Sunday, September 23 @ 11AM – 1PM

WHERE: Bleiles’ Residence 38 Discovery Vista Point SW

WHAT: Discussion, questions, responses, revelation, love. This a women-only event.

Registration is Now Closed

CONTEXT:
During the retreat last year, Father called us to a deep level of vulnerability, revealing that before we can go deeper we need to unveil the heart of who we are. It was so beautiful to see so many of us women sharing where we have been and what Father had been speaking to us.

As we prayed for this year’s retreat, we got a vision from Father:

Just as Aslan (from The Chronicles of Narnia) led all the Pevensie kids from Narnia higher and higher into the reality of who he was, all the while calling “Further up an further in!”, in this same manner, we were running lighting fast, deeper into the Father’s love laughing and playing. We weren’t racing against each other but encouraging each other all the way. We would stop at different heights and take in where we had been, then with a laugh we’d yell “Further up and further in!” 

 

 

This year Father has been calling us deeper into his love individually and collectively. He’s been breaking down the lies, dismantling shame, and restoring our hearts as daughters. He is taking us Further Up and Further In

We are all on an adventure and, while we all may be at a different stage of the journey, one thing is for sure, Father is knitting us together like never before. He’s shaping us into the image of who we were meant to be all along: his daughters. Our stories are all different but we all have the same Papa who loves each of us so uniquely to who we are. 

Additionally, as we’ve been praying about the retreat, Father has been telling us that he is going to use this time with Denise and Katie to birth something new in us and that there will be an impartation of giftings, annointing, and callings happening this weekend.

As you pray about the weekend, ask God what in your heart does he want to birth? Is there a calling he wants to set out in you? A gifting that he wants to reawaken? Ask him also to give you the faith to grab hold of what he has for you and give you the discernment to walk it out after the weekend.
