We have had an incredible year as a community at City View Church. In our gathering last Sunday we took some time to reflect on the Top 5 Moments of 2017.
Here they are!
#5 - Bounce Kids Retreat
In June we took 20 kids to Bounce Kids Retreat in Paris, Ontario. It was an amazing time of games, activities and sessions that pointed our kids to Jesus and his love. We can’t wait to go again in 2018!
#4 - Momentum Jr. High Convention
This past November we had a small group of Jr. High’s and leaders go to Momentum Jr. High Convention in Oakville. It was an action packed weekend with high energy music and teaching, as well as a ton of activities for our students. Thanks to Alicia Rundle and Kayla Ingram for leading this adventure!
#3 - Welcome To Summer Party + Church In The Park
We had so much fun kicking off the summer with our Welcome To Summer Party. It was a fantastic evening of food and fun, including our annual Corn Hole Tournament. Yes, we eventually got rained out, but a ton of people showed up and it was so good to be together.
Then, we closed out the summer by having a potluck and swimming at Thames Park and Pool. It was a great way to close a fantastic summer together.
#2 - Christmas Party
Just a few weeks ago we had our annual Christmas Party and it was a blast. The food was fantastic, we ran out of tables as the community came together, and we had so much fun with our ugly sweater contest, gift exchange and the Ginger Bread Haus relay that our Jr. High Community ran for us. It was the first time running our party at Goodwill and it was a success!
#1 - Baptisms
In November, for the first time at Goodwill, we had baptisms. It was an amazing morning baptizing people and hearing stories of God’s redemption. It was so much fun to come around friends in the community and support them on their journey in Christ. We can’t wait to do it again!
We look forward to everything that is ahead in 2018!
