'Draw the Circle Wider'
This week, our story of 'making church outside a building' takes us to a rooftop. Peter's strange vision opens his eyes and heart to new possibilities, and an encounter with 'the other' transforms his thinking. Who is 'the other' in our lives and in our community inviting us to 'draw the circle wider', and wider still,
for the sake of Love?

This week's scripture story - Acts 10

01-20 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.

This picture is of the interior of the Multi-purpose/Great Room where Visions will hold our Spirit Gatherings. Notice the steel beams supporting the higher ceiling. You can also see the bank of double windows along the front wall, facing south, which will provide the room with lots of natural light. The passive heat from this room is integrated into the heating system for the entire building.

Brian Affleck visited the site this week and took these pictures. Brian will be installing the audio-visual system. He met with the electrician, as well as the company installing the technology infrastructure, to confirm plans. This coming week Netco Electric will install and pull all the wiring and cabling needed for these projects as they do the electrical rough-in.

Thank you, Brian, for the sneak peak!

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.
