Donation Collection and Prayer for Cuban Plane Crash -

This past Thursday a commercial flight went down shortly following takeoff in Cuba. Over 100 people, including ten Nazarene pastors and their spouses from the Cuban east district, lost their lives. Their deaths have left many children orphaned and several churches without pastoral leadership. I invite all who call Skyview home to continue to pray for all the family members of the deceased (listed below). In addition to prayer our national office is raising funds to support those children and churches during this very difficult time. You can donate to this fundraising effort by designating your financial gift as "Cuba Disaster Fund" during our regular tithes and offerings this coming Sunday. If your preference is to give online, you can do so by visiting www.nazarene.ca. Donations can also be made online at www.ncmcanada.ca - under "Donate" and "disaster response." Designate "Cuba Disaster Fund."

missional community at Skyview

The vision behind missional community is inspired by Jesus’ lifestyle and the ways that Jesus’ closest followers sought to imitate his lifestyle together. In the Church’s efforts to make Christ-like disciples, we see three core elements in Jesus’ example:[1]

1)    Up – Communion with God

2)    In – Fellowship with one another

3)    Out – Hospitality, Service, and witness to God’s love beyond the Church

Missional community seeks to embody these three aspects of Jesus’ life in its gatherings. Skyview is seeking to follow this three-fold pattern in its response to God’s call for us to help people come to know Jesus and to grow into mature followers.

Autumn of 2017 gave us a season of praying and discerning God’s calling for us together. I am very thankful for the time that people invested praying, reading, and discerning together how Missional Communities might take shape in our church.

In the Winter and Spring of 2018 we are looking forward to the doors that God will open for us to serve those outside of our church, to grow together in community as we serve, and to grow in our relationship with God all the while. We’re looking to expand Skyview’s value of Generous Hospitality beyond our members and walls as we seek Communion with God and give thanks for God’s blessings.

Three or four ideas for missional community are being discussed, and we’re determining how the vision for missional community fits with our existing ministries – if you are interested in being involved in a gathering that seeks together deeper relationships with God, with each other, and with those outside our community, please contact Ryan Herbert: ryan@skyviewchurch.ca.
