Table Communities

On Same Page Sunday we introduced the direction we want to head in as a congregation over the next five years. This is a slow, long process, which will only move at the speed of relationships and the speed of the Holy Spirit. That said, we want to make sure we are aiming in the right direction as we grow and mature.

To learn more about what Table Communities are, why we think they will be so important, and what it means for this coming year, listen to Kevin’s sermon from Same Page Sunday.

To listen to the sermon, subscribe to “Eucharist Church” through your podcast app, or click here.

You can also read a written summary about Table Communities by clicking here.

To learn more about forming a Table Community, or to enter a group which will help you discern where God might be calling you to engage, check out our “Fall 2019” table at the back of the sanctuary.

Partnership

Last Spring we taught on what it means to be a part of the church in an intentional and participatory way (you can find the podcasts by subscribing to “Eucharist Church” on your podcast app, or by clicking here).

Please listen especially to the sermons titled “Posture of a Partner” if you want to know more about participating in Eucharist.

This fall we would like to ask those in our community to articulate their level of involvement in our church, so that we can better clarify our expectations of one another, and know how best to communicate with those who want to partner in a more intentional way.

For more details on what partnership looks like in our community, why we think it’s important, and what it practically looks like, please read our short article “Partnering in a Church Community” by clicking here.

We will have Partnership forms at every service until mid-October. They are on the “Fall 2019” table at the back of the sanctuary.

The class will run for four weeks, on Wednesday evenings, from 7:30-9:30pm. It’s hosted by Kevin and Jill, and will include a chance to meet a number of Eucharites, but new and old.

If you have any questions, email Kevin at kevin@eucharistchurch.ca

Fellowship Groups

LGTBQ+ Fellowship Group

This is a group for anyone in the Eucharist community who personally navigates the intersection between faith, sexual orientation and/or gender (non-binary, gnc, trans, agender, fluid etc.) It is a safe, confidential, and supportive space to honour all of these identities and hold them together in open hands without expectation or judgement. It’s an inclusive space to connect, recharge and continue growing in faith together. Note: While allies are loved, appreciated and greatly needed, the regular meetings for this group are for those who personally identify as LGBTQ+. 

Plan for the remainder of 2019 is as follows:
October 20th - 10am Hike in Dundas
November 1st - Thanksgiving Potluck
November 28th - Itinerary TBD
December 28th - Post-Christmas PJ Gathering: Movies, Games and Pizza

For details please click here email our co-ordinator Natalie.


Parents, Kids & Caretakers Fellowship Group

This weekly gathering is for anyone in the Eucharist community who is home with children on Wednesday mornings, and would like to connect with other parents and caretakers.

Bring the kids and spend time drinking coffee, talking about the unique joys and challenges of caring for children, and let the kids have some fun together.

The location for this group rotates and change weekly, but the details are always posted in our Facebook Group by Wednesday morning.

You can request access to that group by clicking here.

If you don’t have a Facebook account, but would like to access it using our guest account, click here for the details.
