Weaving Life into Community with our Words, Deeds and Prayers
Join us this week as we continue 'Act 2' of our series, "Acts Now! Stories of Making Church Outside the Building".
We hear the story of Tabitha, also known as Dorcas, and ask ourselves, 'how do our words, deeds and prayers bring life in this world?'. (Acts 9: 36-42)

01-14 Community Hub Update

The construction site at 140 Joyce Avenue continues to be a busy place!
Have you had the chance to drive by? Here are a couple recent updates.

It's a new year and construction continues on the Community Hub building, 140 Joyce Ave, to ensure the building is weather-tight for inside construction.

Roofing on the apartment side is completed. Windows have been installed. Tyvek wrap complete, and strapping ready for installation of siding.
 
Construction is a bit further behind on the Hub side as there were earlier delays waiting for special trusses to arrive to accommodate the cathedral ceiling and roof line over the multi-purpose/Great Room. Shingling began this week. Maybe our next update will show the windows installed! Stay tuned.

Visions in the Cloud – Jan 10

Acts Now! Stories of Making Church Outside a Building

Join us for 'Act 2' of our special worship series based on the Book of Acts.

This second part explores the stories of transformation as people encounter the Spirit of Jesus at work in their lives. This is our story! We live in a time of great transformation as a society, as Visions United, and as individuals- each with our own faith story.

This week we hear a story about Saul, who we know better as Paul. This unlikely character becomes a key actor in the rest of Acts.

This week's story is Acts 9:1-35. A new outline of the Bible readings will be available soon so you can read through the Book of Acts with us.

"When Shepherds Are Sheltering in Place"

We've been re-imaging the Christmas stories in this time of COVID-19. Many of us are 'sheltering-in-place';

Christmas will be different this year. The first visitors in the Christmas story are the Shepherds. What would we miss if the shepherds were sheltering-in-place? Join us as we light the Advent Candle of Love this Sunday.
