Camp Sponsorship Application

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

Westminster Church in Barrie has created a fund to help young people attend church-sponsored summer camps. All of the financial offerings that were received during our two Christmas Eve services were given toward this fund. Examples of these camps are Camp Cairn in Muskoka which include Glen Mhor, Iona, and Presbyterian Music Camp. There are others, but these are good examples. They offer weekly camps throughout the summer. Their schedules and more information can be accessed at Click here to read a pdf copy of the application: Summer Camp Sponsorship Application - 2019 01 They can also be picked up in person at the church from Tuesday to Friday, 9am to noon. The deadline is Sunday, February 24th. (Please note, however, that the 'early bird' deadline for $40 off each camp session at Cairn is February 1st, so you may want to apply early.) Applications will be treated confidentially, and questions can be directed to our treasurer, Mary Colvin.

Sunday Service – Feb. 5, 2023

Joy. How do we find it when we don’t feel it? In the midst of their own sadness because of his imminent departure, Jesus told his disciples that their “hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.” Likewise, we wonder how we can be joyful when we are surrounded by so much hardship and pain. This is our theme on Sunday as we explore John 16:4-24. How can we find joy when we don’t feel it? We will also learn a new memory verse (1 John 4:4). There will be Sunday School ministry (now divided into three age groups) and nursery care. We will sing and pray together, have fellowship, and be fix our eyes on the only One who is able to sustain and guide us! The service is at 10:01 am in-person and online via YouTube.

Sunday Service – July 9, 2023

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

We will give thanks for Vacation Bible Camp, show a video review of the week, re-share some fun content from the camp, and do some singing! This is an ‘all together’ service so there will be no Sunday School. (But there will be nursery care.) Let’s celebrate God in an uplifting and joyful way together. This is a great service to invite a friend or family member who is unsure about church. It will be casual and joyful. The service begins at 10:01am both in person and online via YouTube.
