Discussion: Why Should We Start New Churches?
Wednesday  |  June 20th  |  12:00-2:00 pm  |  Off-site
This discussion forum is being put together by the Presbytery of Los Ranchos, led by Rev. Kirk Winslow of Canvas Church. Pastor Winslow started Canvas from scratch and he will lead us in a great conversation about planting churches in our post Christian society.
Here’s what you can expect at this gathering:
1) A good dialogue on this topic. Let us discover together the logic behind planting churches in our post-Christian times. In a time when we hear negative data about the state of the Church, why bother planting and starting new congregations? Let us learn together.
2) Also, learn more about what Cyclical Los Ranchos is and how we can partner with you to start new worshipping communities.
This event will take place at Canvas Church located at 17332 Von Karman Avenue, Suite 115 in Irvine, California, 92614. We really are looking forward to seeing you and having a great time together, seeing the location of one of our new worshipping communities.
Messy Sunday
Sunday  |  June 24th  |  From 10:00 am  |  Courtyard
This special time is for kids and families to experience the Bible in a new way – through hands-on, messy activities that they can share with their families and other grown-ups at the event and at home. Join us as we take a journey into ‘Shipwrecked’ – this summer’s Vacation Bible School theme! Crafts, games, stories, songs and snacks will be available! Families are welcome throughout Worship and during fellowship time!
Book Club
Wednesday  |  June 27th  |  11:30 am  |  E107
For June, the Book Club is reading and discussing Clementine, the Life of Mrs. Winston Churchill by Sonia Purnell:
By Winston Churchill’s own admission, victory in the Second World War would have been “impossible without her.” Until now, however, the only existing biography of Churchill’s wife, Clementine, was written by her daughter. Sonia Purnell finally gives Clementine her due with a deeply researched account that tells her life story. Born into impecunious aristocracy, the young Clementine was the target of cruel snobbery. Many wondered why Winston married her, but their marriage proved to be an exceptional partnership. Beautiful and intelligent, but driven by her own insecurities, she made his career her mission. Any real consideration of Winston Churchill is incomplete without an understanding of their relationship, and Clementine is both the first real biography of this remarkable woman and a fascinating look inside their private world.
Please join us in The Lion’s Den (E107) with a sack lunch and participate in an interesting book discussion.
