CONNECTION

FIND OUT MORE

thursday connection night

To us "church" is not just a Sunday or a Wednesday meeting. To us, the word "church" also means a community of people that love Jesus. A community is something way beyond just showing up for a regimented spiritual exercise; it is people forming frienships and living their lives with the company of each other. Because of that we needed to create something that allowed for those friendships and bonds to form. We created our "connection night". It is a night that we solely dedicate for you to plug into the church and get to know a few people. You can plug in by volunteering in the various things going on during the night or just show up and hangout in our cafe! Connection night is our way of creating an atmosphere that allows for friendships to develop and flourish way beyond the four walls of the Church.

We meet every Thursday 7:30PM - 12:30AM. The evening is free flowing, come and go as you please.

SPIRITUALITY

SPIRITUAL

mentor groups

Mentor groups provide a place to discover new relationships that build essential connections to other Christians and the church. Making a commitment to be part of a small group is not always convenient in a world of overloaded schedules and persistent demands. Often people would rather connect on social media than add another engagement to their busy calendar. However, meeting with others in an intimate setting has numerous benefits including opportunities to ask questions, present ideas and share common interests. We are enriched and challenged through those close personal relationships.

Windsor Christian Fellowship offers a wide range of mentor groups throughout the community. Each is unique and strives to address interests common to the individuals who attend; however all the groups provide a time of prayer, discipleship and encouragement in an atmosphere of fellowship.

Mentor Groups Start at 8PM and go till 9PM

Our young adult mentor groups on Thursdays are led by Brian and Sheri Ciaramitaro. If you have any more questions contact Brian Ciaramitaro at bfc@wcf.ca


celebrate recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. It was designed as a program to help by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. By working the 8 Principles and 12 Steps we begin to grow spiritually. We experience freedom from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.

The first hour is the Large Group Meeting at 7:00pm with Praise and Worship, followed by a teaching or testimony on a specific topic. During the second hour we have Open Share groups. During this time we break into gender specific as well as issue specific groups. An optional time of fellowship follows.

Celebrate Recovery meets every Thursday @ 7:00pm in Room #106.

APOLOGETICS

FAITH

apologetics

Put simply, apologetics helps us to understand our faith and effectively communicate it to others.

In Matthew 22:37, Jesus said "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind". It is important for us to "study to show ourselves approved unto God" to know the scriptures and the historical evidence that supports the teachings.

We are called to give an answer for the hope within us. 1 Peter 3:15 says, "But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have."

Apologetics will deepen your faith and develop a greater appreciation of what Christ accomplished on the cross. It will also help you to answer the questions that both Christians and Non- Christians ask. Why is there so much suffering in the world? Is the Bible really true? Is there really life after death? Does God have a plan for my life?

Join in the discussion or just come and listen in a warm and inviting group atmosphere. We meet the first Thursday of every month from 8PM to 9PM in the mezzanine.

Brian and Sheri Ciaramitaro lead apologetics. bfc@wcf.ca
