Check back throughout the Resolution Retreat for updates.
REMINDER: Departure from Cana at 1:30pm. We will eat pizza AFTER we load the buses. Leave your luggage near the back door of the church – gym door nearest the parking lot.
Day 1 – Settling and the Champion Ring:
When we arrived, a team of our older adults had already set the course for the Champion Ring. We played a big game – combo scavenger hunt and obstacle course. The students formed their small groups (tribes) and got familiar with their tribe leaders. We had a great first bible study session. Kevin spoke from John 6:25-33 about the need for personal faith.
I want you to know what great students you have. They have been respectful, engaged, and helpful. I’m proud of their willingness to adopt in our guest students. In every way, your students have been exemplary young adults. I look forward to the remainder of Day 2.
Unified Worship begins January 13, 2019 at 9:15am.
A handful of years ago, due to space constraints, Cana went to 2 worship services. The idea was a noble attempt. However, choosing to utilize different worship styles eventually led to not just 2 services but 2 churches. The question was how to regain a sense of single-minded church wide community. The answer is simple: Unified Worship. In the simplest sense, Unified Worship is an attempt to regain and reinforce the truth that Cana is a single body of believers with a single purpose of reaching and reclaiming the world with the gospel of Christ.
So, what does Unified Worship look like? It means moving to one Sunday School session and one worship service. This will allow Cana to reset as God moves us into the next stage of growth. In addition, it will serve to begin our move toward every member being an empowered minister and a vital part of Cana. This is where you fit in. During the shift to Unified Worship you will be asked to play your part in the body by:
Being prepared and ready to worship as a single church body,
Expressing your love for each other and visitors by SOS (scooting over some),
Being flexible to the inevitable changes that will take place.
Personally, I believe Unified Worship will benefit us greatly. It will remind us that we are one church with one purpose centered in the work of one Lord and Saviour. To our God be all glory and honor.
Pastor Kevin takes on the difficult issue of hardship in the Christian life. He explores the way in which Christ worked through his humiliating death and accomplished victory over sin so that people, in hardship, can also overcome sin.
Pastor Kevin explores the value of our victory in Jesus Christ. We have no excuse for failure in this life because we are empowered for victory. This message is an uplifting and hopeful word for anyone struggling to maintain their faith on a daily basis.
Pastor Kevin begins a new series through the Book of Hebrews. Spiritual Awakening begins when God speaks personally and persistently into our lives. If you are not listening to God speak through Jesus Christ, life is under-performing. Learn how to level up. As a bonus, get the devotional guide.
