Acknowledging that the cause of our anxiety often stems from emotional responses rather than factual evidence, Pastor Mark discusses how three powerful beliefs: the existence of God, God's providence, and God's love, can alleviate these worries. Join Mark Clark as he continues unpacking Jesus greatest sermon in part 3 of Beyond The Golden Rule.

May 19, 2024

The golden rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” You’ve probably quoted it and may even try to live by it. Jesus taught it as a small part of his most famous sermon, but there’s so much more to it than you might expect. This scriptural account has more meaning, challenge, and depth for your life. What if you’re missing the whole point? Our purpose as Christians is to bring true meaning and flavour to the world by treasuring Christ above everything.

What if you’re missing the whole point? Join us for these four weeks as we look at Jesus’ greatest sermon.

There are moments in our lives that will define us. This is that type of moment for us as individuals and as a church. We’ve seen the heart of God by looking at what he searches for and what he celebrates - but how will we respond? Let’s join him on the mission of being FOR those around us and welcoming them home. Like the early church, in the power of the Holy Spirit, let’s show people that they matter to us, and most of all, they matter to God.

Taking the step to care for someone who doesn’t know Jesus can feel daunting. What does it mean to be the kind of person, and the kind of church, that cares for people who are far from God? There’s something powerful about one human being intentionally serving another. It’s at the heart of our faith and modeled by Jesus.

Apr 21, 2024

It’s easy for us to dismiss or forget that God is working all around us. Not only do we miss what he’s doing, but we also miss out on being a part of it. What if the key to a faith that’s meaningful and engaging is looking to see who God is calling us to reach out to, and looking to see where he’s already at work? What would happen if you made more room in your life to see the people around you who don’t know Jesus the way God sees them? What if people saw you as a person of hope? What if they saw you as “home”? And what if they saw our church that way?

At Connexus Church, our heart beats for those yet to be reached with the hope of Jesus. Did you know that there are nearly 450,000 people in Simcoe County who don’t attend church Sunday morning? The mission is urgent and clear. The FOR Them campaign is our bold response to God’s call, a transformative journey to extend his love and grace to every corner of our community and beyond so that more people would know Jesus. The journey launches today.

We all need help—help from friends and help from Jesus to address the deepest need of the human heart. When you experience something that changes everything, you can’t help but share it. As Jesus journeyed toward the cross and the tomb, different people along the way were invited to come and see. As his journey progressed, it became less clear what God was doing in the moment, but more clear to us today–clear that the invitation to come and see isn’t just a physical one, it’s a spiritual one. It’s an invitation of forgiveness, hope, and freedom. It wasn’t just news for a moment, but good news for all humanity. Good news for you, and it’s definitely worth sharing.

If you come to the cross as you are, you can’t leave the same.

Come on the journey as Joseph Swan unpacks the story behind Palm Sunday and listen as he shares part of his own story.

Inevitably, life presents us with pain and suffering. Yet, the hope found in Jesus serves as a steadfast reminder that goodness persists even in the midst of our trials. By directing our focus toward the profound significance of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we can mold our perspective amidst adversity. His resurrection embodies transformative power, showcasing triumph over evil and the transformation of shame into glory. It is crucial to anchor our thoughts on the enduring nature of God’s love and the assurance that death does not have the final say.

Mar 3, 2024

None of us are immune to trials, suffering, and pain, but the real question is whether we will allow these things to shape us and reveal something more valuable that lies below. When we learn how to better face hardships, it can make our relationships stronger. The story of Job highlights the importance of empathetic friends and encourages us to find a supportive community to go through tough times together. Reflecting on Jesus’ sacrifice should inspire in us a desire to be a selfless friend providing love, grace, forgiveness, and freedom.

Pain is an undeniable aspect of the human experience. Regardless of how carefully we navigate our lives, we are all bound to encounter moments of pain and suffering. As individuals of faith grappling with faith poses unique challenges. When confronted with the harsh realities of pain and suffering our faith can waiver. Looking at the story of Jesus we can find hope that we aren’t going through this alone.

Feb 11, 2024

You’ve probably heard many people reference the biblical story of David and Goliath. In many ways, it’s the ultimate underdog story—a classic example of the common situation where the small, inexperienced upstart strives to overcome the strong, seasoned champion. What does this story teach us about trusting God in the midst of our own challenges in life?

Feb 4, 2024

We’ve never been more connected, and yet we’ve never been more lonely. At the same time, when we are alone, we struggle to disconnect in a healthy way. Our phones, our screens, and the demands on our life have changed us—you might argue they’ve made our souls feel barren. We struggle to be present with ourselves, let alone with God. In this message, we look at how Jesus modelled the power of silence and solitude to feed his soul.

Much of the content of this message can be found in John Mark Comer's book The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. We highly recommend this book.

In the last decade, online relationships have exploded, and so have loneliness, depression, and suicide. AI is going to take that to a whole new level, making probable what few of us even dreamed possible a year ago.  It’s understandable why people want to escape the pain of real-life relationships and find someone ‘better’ online, but that appears to be (literally) killing us. People may be the deepest problem in life we all would love to escape from, but people are God’s deepest solution to loneliness. 

Jan 7, 2024

Something has shifted in our culture. We feel more lonely—some experts even describe it as a silent pandemic. It’s not merely about being physically alone but feeling a sense of isolation within. How do you find genuine connection in our lonely world? In this series, we’ll help you discover why you’re experiencing loneliness and uncover powerful insights from the Bible about forging deeper connections, cultivating meaningful relationships, and discovering a purpose that can help you move from existing to true belonging. Join Jeff Brodie as he starts a five week series called "Not alone, but lonely."

Sometimes we just need to know that God is here and that He’s paying attention. If we knew that with certainty, then maybe we would be fine or at least finer. Maybe you’re still looking for that sign and you haven’t found it yet, so you start to wonder. We all have a concept of what God is like, but until the arrival of Jesus, the world was left guessing. There was so much mystery, only hints and shadows, and then God came to dwell with us to demonstrate for us what he is like. If you look anywhere other than Jesus for what God is like, then you are looking in the wrong place. God is like Jesus. Jesus came to us to demonstrate, illustrate, and communicate what God is like, who He is, and who He loves.
