Life Groups — Winter and Spring 2020 (please note: during Covid-19 most of our Life Groups are still meeting thru zoom video conferencing. Send us an email and we can get you connected to a group)
Our Life Groups cover a range of topics and are held at various times and locations through the week. This is where friendships are deepened, where we learn to pray, and where we apply the Bible to our lives. We encourage everyone at Celebration Church to be part of a Life Group and we welcome those from the community.
** Prayer Group
Tuesday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 in the classroom at Inniswood. If you have never prayed before this is a good place to learn. We include worship and times of silence. We pray through all the requests that are written by the congregation in the Friendship Registers.
There will be a Prayer Event with Bishop Charlie and Canon Garth Hunt on Tuesday May 5th at a retreat centre near Orangeville. Cost $20. Call the church to register.
** Prayer Shawls
On alternate Tuesday evenings this group meets at Marion’s home to prayerfully knit Prayer Shawls which will be given out to those who are sick or in crisis. As the sick are wrapped in the warmth of the shawls we pray that they will feel the love of the Lord Jesus. For more information speak to Marion or Peggy.
** Women’s Bible Study
Begins Tuesday January 21st at Inniswood from 12:45 to 3:00 pm. We are continuing with our project to study the 50 most important people and events in the Bible. We are led by Gay Welsman and Pastor Kathleen Greidanus. No cost (except help with refreshments).
** There will be an ANiC Woman’s weekend April 25 – 26th. Watch for more details and registration.
Every Wednesday morning the men of the congregation gather for breakfast at “Andy’s Place Restaurant” (located on Hart Drive) from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. We are led in a short devotion by Walter. No cost (except for your breakfast).
** Watch for a spring men’s Movie Night and a summer Golf Event.
** Thursday evening Life Group
The Thursday evening Life Group hosted by Paul and Judy Thompson begins March 5th. This winter we are using a DVD study by Charles Price called Transformations. “The miracles that Jesus performed were unique and wonderful expressions of His love and power. But they weren’t just to get people out of a fix. Every event in Jesus’ life was a sign – a sign pointing to the transforming power to be found in Jesus Christ -”I have come that you might have life (John 10), and have it more abundantly!” In this study we will discover how the key miracles of Jesus from the Gospel of John are “pointers” to the abundant , victorious and transforming life that we can experience with Jesus!
Join us Thursday evenings from 7 to 9pm at the Thompson’s (no cost). For more information and directions call 705-737-1905.
** Celebrate Recovery in Barrie
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12-step recovery program to help us overcome life’s hurts, hang-ups and habits. It is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our life. Celebrate Recovery meets Friday evenings at 7 pm at 460 Yonge Street (small building). For more information call 705-999-2911 or speak to Jim or Dennis. https://barriecelebraterecovery.ca/
