EVERYTHING SPRING (May + June 2017)
Curious what is happening in our church this Spring? Hear an announcement at church but looking for more details? Everything we are doing or talking about is here.
This Spring is a little unique as Pastor Kevin is on sabbatical. You probably aren't panicked, but if for some reason you are... just chill. Everything is going to be great.
Every Sunday for the next two months, a different small group will be anchoring the gathering. We also have a great line up of preachers, both internal to Eucharist and a special guest, and have a number of new people stepping into new roles within our church.
If there are any unanswered questions by the end of this, feel free to email Pastor Jill (email@example.com) or the Elders (firstname.lastname@example.org) and they will make sure to answer your questions!

GOOD FRIDAY 2017
Wake for a Righteous Man
Our Good Friday service is a wake for Jesus, where we, through spoken word and music, remember his life and grieve his murder.
Classes Run Through May
We are offering four different classes throughout May, which are free to attend. They range from Ignatian Spirituality, to the enneagram, to Narnia and how to read the bible. These are top notch teachers, working through really fascinating material, so don't miss it. Find out more and register below.
April 2, May 7, & June 4
Reminder that we have monthly potlucks, the first Sunday of the month. Please bring a dish and plate/cutlery for yourself and maybe another! Eating together is part of being the church, so please prioritize being there!
Leanne Friesen is the Senior Pastor at Mount Hamilton Baptist Church, just up the hill from us.
In addition to being heavily involved in our broader networks of TrueCity and the Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec, Leanne is a huge supporter of us in Eucharist. For a year we were technically under their charitable status number, and they supported us in so many ways.
Leanne is also a very gifted preacher. She has spoken to thousands of people at conferences and retreats and blogs regularly at leannefriesen.com - but most impressively, she loves and serves her local community with her whole heart. She loves this city, she loves God, and she is so excited to be with us for four weeks in a row, following Easter.
Please give her the warmest welcome. We look forward to seeing how God will teach us through her.
In addition to our current Elders, Stream Leaders, and Pastoral Staff, we have two new staff beginning in April.
Pastoral Care Internship
Starting in April, Rob Miller is hoping to meet with you if you need a listening ear, someone to pray with, or any other form of pastoral care. Rob is currently finishing his M.A. at Wycliffe Seminary in Toronto, and is excited to take what he has learned into the classroom into the real world of our community and our city.
If you would like to meet for a coffee or a walk, please email Rob to set up a time. Click here to email him!
Also starting in April, Alissa Fairly is officially on staff as our kids coordinator. We have a great Sunday kids program, and a lot of great kids in our church. Alissa is excited to work with our team to help our kids grow and evolve into all God desires them to be. Children are a sign of the Kingdom of God, and always have a place at the table of our church!
