Sunday Service – June 24

On June 24th we’ll gather at 10:01am to praise God, pray, sing, learn and encourage one another in the Christian faith. The nursery and Sunday School will be open. And our pastor will talk about forgiveness. It’s something Jesus taught about… a lot! But that doesn’t mean it’s any less difficult. That’s why we’ll dive into Scripture, and explore an angle that you maybe haven’t thought of before. But it's incredibly helpful when it comes to "righting wrongs." Hint: Just because something happened in the past doesn't mean it's passed. This new perspective will give you greater freedom and more peace. Let’s honour God together!

Canada Day Service – July 1

On July 1st we’ll gather at 10:01am on Canada Day to praise God together! The nursery will be open. But the Sunday School classes will stay in the sanctuary for this shortened inter-generational service. That means we'll all worship God together with singing and interactive worship. Plus, as a part of that, we'll give out the Sunday School certificates to all the students who were a part of our Sunday School over the past year! Small Canada flags will be given out to the kids, the sanctuary will be decorated with some balloons, we'll sing, pray, hear from a few different people (of different ages) about how Jesus can make Canada better, and even enjoy the "Canada Trivia Challenge." And of course, we'll have some Happy Birthday Canada cake after the service. Let’s honour God together.

VBS Rally Service – July 8

On July 8th we’ll gather at 10:01am to praise God together on VBS Rally Sunday! VBS (Vacation Bible School/Camp) is a big mission each year. It runs from July 9 to 13. And on the Sunday before it starts (this year, July 8th), we come together to worship God in a way that gets us excited for Vacation Bible Camp. The Camp itself is called Rolling River Rampage and is based on Isaiah 43:2, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you." So that's what our theme verse for Sunday will be as well. It's an inter-generational service, which means that we all worship together (no Sunday School) in a way that engages the different age groups. We'll enjoy the sanctuary all decked out for VBS (it looks awesome!) sing some VBS songs, watch a preview video for the Camp, meet Otter the River Otter, get 'prayer compasses' to encourage us all to pray for the Camp through the week, and honour God together. Let's celebrate the adventure life can be with a God who strengthens us and who will never leave us. Join in!

Friends, You’re Invited! Vacation Bible School is coming soon to Westminster Presbyterian Church! It happens from July 9 to 13 from 9am to noon. It's called Rolling River Rampage and will be an awesome adventure down the river, where campers become River Rafters as they learn to experience the ride of a lifetime with God! Our young Rafters will join together at the high-energy assembly, enjoy interactive Bible lessons, make fun art projects and crafts, enjoy snacks, and play wonderful camp games. A few special events will happen during our summer Vacation Bible Camp as well including a community car wash, animal show, and lots of fun! Plus, campers will get a free T-shirt and music CD. This is a popular event and needs to be capped at 80 campers. So don’t wait to long to sign up! Our young people are well-supervised and cared for, and consistently report having an amazing time at Camp. Camp is open to all children ages 4 through 11. The cost is only $25 per camper!

Car Wash!

Join in on Wednesday, July 11th from 9:30 to 11:15am for our annual Car Wash! Just drive into our parking lot (at 170 Steel Street in Barrie, ON) and our attendants will tell you where to go. It's a free will donation with 50% of the funds going toward supplies for our Free Community BBQ on Saturday, July 14th, and 50% of the funds going to the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, who is committed to conserving, restoring and managing the Lake Simcoe watershed​. Since our VBS includes a visit from our animal friends (on Thursday), and since our mascot is a River Otter, we thought this a great cause that we could rally around! Come on by and tell your friends! :)

Sunday Service – July 15

On Sunday, July 15th at 10:01am we gather to worship the living and true God! Nursery care will be available, and the Sunday School will be open. And since we'll just be on the heels of the popular Vacation Bible Camp, we'll show a video recap of the week during the kids' time. For the message (sermon), our pastor will start a new 3-part teaching series called "Oops! – Half-truths we believe, how they hurt us, and how biblical truth can get us back on track." In it, he’ll expose three 3 half-truths, identify how they hurt us, and take us into our Bibles to get us back on track for more faithful, fruitful and fulfilling lives. The first half-truth that we'll explore is this: "God accepts you just the way you are." It's true... but there's more to the story. And he’s asking you to B.Y.O.B. — bring your own Bibles! We’re going to look up some passages together, and give you the opportunity to make some notes. Have you ever tried to do a puzzle with half of the pieces missing? If so, you’ll know that a part of the picture isn’t the same as the whole picture—and it’s also way less fulfilling. Let's honour God together with prayer, worship, singing, learning and mutual encouragement!

Oops! – A new Sunday teaching series

-Have you ever tried to go somewhere with only half a map? -Have you ever tried to navigate a new neighbourhood with an out-of-date G.P.S. in your car? -Have you ever tried to assemble a BBQ with basic picture prompts but instructions that were in a different language? -Have you ever tried to study for a test with a text book that is 6 editions out of date? Some information can be helpful—but it can also be hurtful if we think it's the whole picture (when it's not). In life this happens all the time. We hear things like "God accepts you just the way you are" or "Nice people go to heaven when they die" or "This is the Christian thing to do" and then make a whole series of assumptions about those statements that leave us with half-truths that actually misinform, and therefore, hurt us. On July 15, 22, and 29 our pastor will lead us through a 3-part series called "Oops! - Half-truths we believe, how they hurt us, and how biblical truth can get us back on track." In it, he'll expose three 3 half-truths, identify how they hurt us, and take us into our Bibles to get us back on track for more faithful, fruitful and fulfilling lives. Oh, and he's asking you to B.Y.O.B. -- bring your own Bibles! We're going to look up some passages together, and give you the opportunity to make some notes. Have you ever tried to do a puzzle with half of the pieces missing? If so, you'll know that a part of the picture isn't the same as the whole picture---and it's also way less fulfilling. So join in. And let's grow together.

Sunday Service – July 22

On Sunday, July 22nd at 10:01am we gather to worship the living and true God! Nursery care will be available, and the Sunday School will be open. For the message (sermon), our pastor will continue a 3-part teaching series called “Oops! – Half-truths we believe, how they hurt us, and how biblical truth can get us back on track.” In it, he’ll expose three 3 half-truths, identify how they hurt us, and take us into our Bibles to get us back on track for more faithful, fruitful and fulfilling lives. Have you ever tried to do a puzzle with half of the pieces missing? If so, you’ll know that a part of the picture isn’t the same as the whole picture—and it’s also way less fulfilling. If you missed Part 1 called "God loves you as you are, but..." and want to listen in to catch up, click here. In Part 2 he'll address the idea that Christians "have it all together." It's certainly not true in the way some people think, and there's definitely more to the story! And we're asking you to B.Y.O.B. — to bring your own Bibles! We’re going to look up some passages together, and give you the opportunity to make some notes. Let’s honour God together with prayer, worship, singing, learning and mutual encouragement!
