Celebrating Family Weekend

Hello All,

This weekend is family day weekend. It looks like the weather will be fine, so get out and do something active as a family. Go skating, skiing, take a walk, play shinny on a pond or even try snowshoeing! If you have grandparents around, spend sometime enjoying their company. So there's the pep talk for the day.

On Sunday we will be meeting here at the Schultzes for house church. If you are coming please let us know in advance for our planning. You are welcome to hang out over lunch, but if you plan to do so bring a main dish and drink to share with everyone.

Next Sunday we'll be meeting at Beth's place. We'll put out an e-mail with her address next week.

The following weekend is the Simply Jesus conference on March 2nd and 3rd. This is a great event to bring your family as we'll have something for the kids. As well, we encourage you to invite a friend or family member who is a seeker. Our main speaker Carl presents Jesus in such a natural and attractive way that anyone who is open to discovering what Jesus is really like will feel comfortable. So this event is a chance to continue the dialogue that you may have been having with some friends, family, neighbours, or co-workers about your relationship with Jesus. Carl is funny, down to earth, and has some really amazing stories of finding Jesus in the most unlikely places. It will be like having a chat with a friend over coffee. He really addresses the notions and tainted perspectives that folks have about Jesus based on their negative experiences with overly zealous condescending Christians or the fear based approach to Christianity and church. You can still register at

Have a great weekend,

Tim and Esther
