Sunday Service – Oct. 8, 2023

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

Sunday, October 8th is Thanksgiving Sunday! The Communion table will have the fruit of the season, and we will gather to sing, pray and learn as Jesus’ people. We will also hold a drive for the Barrie Food Bank. If able, please contribute! Pastor Ruttan will return to the current teaching series, “The beginning is nigh.” The text will be 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12, and the focus will be on what we're for, not just what we're against as Jesus' people. There will be dedicated teachers to provide Sunday School and faithful helpers in the nursery. We will have treats, drinks and fellowship after the service.

Sunday Service – Dec.3, 2023

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

Advent begins! This is the four-week period leading up to Christmas. Advent means “coming,” and refers to the coming of Christ—not only at Christmas, but for his return. It is a season of anticipation and preparation. We will light the candle of hope, be blessed by special music, and celebrate the Sacrament of Communion. (See separate announcement for our procedure.) The teaching will be the second last instalment of the ‘Beginning is Nigh’ series. 2nd Thessalonians 2 is a dramatic chapter: Paul discusses ‘the rebellion,’ the ‘man of lawlessness,’ and standing firm as we await Jesus’ return. It is a text which is perfectly on-point for Advent. There will be Sunday School provided by thoughtful, helpful teachers, and loving nursery care. Let’s honour the Lord together. The service begins at 10:01am.  

Sunday Service – January 14, 2024

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

On Sunday we will praise God! It’s what we were made to do. We will sing and pray, learn from scripture, and support one another as the body of Christ. There will be Sunday school, nursery care, and fellowship time. As a part of the service we will hear some faith statements by people who are becoming professing members of the congregation. Pastor Ruttan will also give some teaching about ‘spiritual gifts 101.’ Every Christian has at least one “spiritual gift” that God has given them to use for his purposes in the world. What are they and how do you know? Come Holy Spirit! Let’s honour the Lord together. The service is at 10:01am.

Sunday Service – Feb.11, 2024

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

On Sunday we gather in-person for 10:01am to worship and praise the Triune God. We begin a new teaching series on the book of Esther, the young Jewish woman who ascended to the throne in times that were dangerous, politically and personally. Did you realize that it's the only book of the Bible in which God is not specifically named? There's no mention of miracles or Jerusalem. And yes, it is filled with moral ambiguities. A major theme will be discerning the hand of God when it's hard to see. We will worship, pray, and praise. Thoughtful and loving volunteers will lead Sunday School, provide nursery care, and facilitate fellowship time after the service. Come, Lord! Let’s honour the Lord together. The service is at 10:01am.
