Christmas Eve is less than week away, and tickets are going fast.

Every year, our Christmas Eve services are some of the most memorable services we do, and amazing stories are always written on Christmas Eve.

It also happens to be one of the best services to invite your friend to. People are looking to celebrate at Christmas, and our Christmas In Orillia and Christmas In Barrie services give you a great venue to do just that with your friends and family.

Don’t miss out. Tickets are going fast.

In fact, some of our services are almost sold out already.

Uncomplicating Christmas | Andy Stanley

Christmas is complicated enough. There are presents to pick, parking spots to find, and family dynamics to navigate. The story of Christmas – God’s most important message to mankind – shouldn’t be complicated. In this message, Andy Stanley unpacks the bottom line of Christmas. And it’s a bottom line that is truly “good news.”

You Are Here – Part 4 – X-Factor | Carey Nieuwhof

Jesus paints a picture of the life he would love every follower to have: a heart that’s like good soil, where God’s work grows and takes root.  Will you ever get there? And if you do, what will your life look like? You might be surprised by the answers. It’s more than possible.

Well Connexus, thanks for being rich once again this year. Rich in giving. Rich in good deeds.

Today we announced the totals for our 2014 Be Rich initiative—a chance for all of us to be rich in good deeds as we give back to our community.

You did it…you gave, served, donated and extended a hand to those most in need in our community.

Christmas is almost here!

Looking for something awesome to do as a family this Christmas?

Join us for Christmas in Orillia or Christmas in Barrie. Tickets are free.

We’re so excited to be offering 5 Christmas services this year at Connexus Church December 23rd and 24th.

Christmas In Orillia

Christmas In Barrie

If you’ve ever been to a Christmas service at Connexus before, you know our band is in its best form bringing in the music of Christmas, and the message is designed with you, your friends and family in mind.

We also love Christmas because we see God begin so many new stories each year on Christmas Eve. People who would never go to church are in church, and God uses those moments to begin life change in so many people.

So the question is not just, are you coming, but who are you bringing with you?

Here’s a short video with all the details:

You can get your free tickets for Christmas In Orillia, December 23rd at the Orillia Opera House here.

Get your free tickets for one of our four Christmas in Barrie services (2:00, 3:30, 5:00 and 6:30 p.m.) December 24th at the Barrie Golf and Country Club here.

Of all the Christmas memories you’ll make as a family, we hope this year’s Christmas in Orillia and Christmas in Barrie services will be among the best. It’s a great opportunity to share the incredible message of Jesus with each other and with your friends and family.

We have so much to celebrate!

Wow Connexus!

Construction is moving along quickly on our brand new central facility at 20 Mills Road.

The under-three minute video tour will bring you up to date, touring you through the entire facility as it’s being built:

What’s really exciting for me is not what we’re doing, but why we’re doing it. I love praying about and thinking through the stories God is going to write in and through this facility—in your life and in the life of your friends and family who don’t yet attend church.

Who are you praying for as we get ready for our boldest—and best—year to come?

By the way, at our services on Sunday December 21st, and our Christmas Eve services on December 23rd and 24th, we’ll take up a special, voluntary Christmas Offering.

All the proceeds will be used to help us get ready for the new costs associated with the move into our permanent facility and the refresh at our Orillia campus. If you were planning on giving a special year end gift, this is the perfect opportunity to do it.

Our boldest, and best moments, are yet to come!

You Are Here - Continues Sunday!

When was the last time you caught yourself worrying?

Last week?
Yesterday?
An hour ago?

Worry creeps in, slowly dismantling our state of mind. Destroying our peace.

But with so much going on in your busy life – how do you stop it?

Is it unavoidable? Can it be cured?

Nobody likes to be known as a worrier, but shouldn’t we be just a little bit worried for those we care about?

Your spouse, your kids, your parents?

Last weekend in Barrie, and this weekend in Orillia we talk about worry, and what Jesus says about it.

Coming up this Sunday in Barrie, we look at a very specific “X-Factor” that can land you exactly where you want to be in life. What is it? You’ll have to find out Sunday!

At both campuses, it’s going to be a great weekend, we’ll see you on Sunday!

You Are Here – Part 3 – Weeds | Carey Nieuwhof

Consider yourself a worrier? Know someone who is? What if worry stunts your spiritual growth? Jesus said that worry, anxiety and life can choke out whatever spiritual progress you make. We’ll look at why that is and how to overcome it this weekend.
