A key priority for us at Celebration Church is our mid-week Life Groups. Sunday morning is a time for worship and fellowship but it is in the mid-week groups where lasting friendships are made and spiritual growth takes place. It is our goal that every member of Celebration Church would be part of a Life Group. This is where we: make friends, learn with friends, and pray with friends. For more info or to register please contact the group leader, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org , or call the Church office at 705-999-2911. Click here to download the Life Group Schedule

** PRAYER SHAWLS —
On alternate Tuesday evenings this group meets at Marion O’Brien’s home to prayerfully knit Prayer Shawls which will be given out to those who are sick or in crisis.

** SOUTH BARRIE LIFE GROUP: —
Brothers and Sisters: Many of you have been waiting all summer for one of Barb William’s famous soups and for the warm fraternal fellowship we have enjoyed over the past few years! Well, mark your calendars for Sunday September 10th. Yes, after church we will regroup around the dining room table for lunch then view a short video portion of a new RZM course titled “Everyday Questions.” This is a 9 week course that has 7 presenters and boasts that it will, in an easy to learn manner, equip us to better share our faith confidentially and convincingly. Many of us need the help this course offers to get us the salt (Christians), out of the saltshaker (the Church) into the tasteless and decaying culture around us. The cost is $20.00 per person. Do let either Barb or Pastor Peter know if you plan to attend so we can plan for your participation (materials need to be ordered). We do look forward to welcoming newcomers and hope you will come. Call Barb or Peter
