Community Groups - Canvas Community Groups Spring 2020

Canvas Community Groups are one of the best places for meaningful relationships to develop and for sustained spiritual life-change to occur. While we are in a “season” of social distancing Canvas will be hosting several ZOOM Community Groups as well as several groups meeting outside in local parks.

Sunday Livestream Gathering Discussion Groups | Sundays 11:00 a.m.
Join others at Canvas immediately following the Sunday Livestream Gathering via ZOOM to discuss the sermon, to pray together, and to encourage one another. Canvas currently has approximately ten ZOOM groups meeting following the Sunday Livestream. If you would like to be connected to one of the Livestream groups, please email ashley@canvaschurch.ca

Prayer, Fasting, and the Pursuit of God | Mondays 7:00 P.M. (Young Adults), Tuesday 12:00 P.M. (Men & Women) | Starting June 8 & 10

We were created to know and enjoy God, and to depend on Him for our every need. Sadly, though, we often look to the things of this world to satisfy us, and we are constantly tempted to rely on ourselves rather than on God’s wisdom and power.

Using David Platt's Secret Church resource on Prayer, Fasting, and the Pursuit of God, we’ll see that all of Scripture invites us to pursue God, and we’ll see how crucial the role of prayer and fasting is in this pursuit. Beginning in Genesis and moving all the way through Revelation, David Platt shows us that God has designed prayer and fasting not only to meet our daily needs but more importantly so that we might find greater intimacy and satisfaction in Him. We’ll also see the critical role of prayer and fasting in carrying out the mission Christ gave to His church—to make disciples of all nations.

We will offer two ZOOM Groups on this study. For Young Adults (Age 18-29) on Mondays at 7:00 p.m. starting, Monday June 8. For men and women of any age on Tuesdays at 12:00 p.m. starting, Tuesday June 10. Both groups will include a 225 page study guide and will be led by Pastor Ashley. Email ashley@canvaschurch.ca to join one of the groups.

Wednesday Night Student ZOOM Group | 7:00 p.m.

Men's Prayer | Thursdays at 8:00 a.m.
Join other men every Thursday at 8:00 a.m. via ZOOM as men gather to share how God is working and to intercede for one another, for Canvas, and for our city.
