pitstop2017.png

You’re warmly welcome to come by Redemption Church (3512 West 7th Ave - the little blue church across the street from Bayview Elementary on Collingwood & 7th) on Tuesday, October 31 for our second annual Halloween Pit Stop. From 5:30-8:00 pm, come warm yourself by the fire, make a s'more, watch a short movie, grab a snack or hot drink, and enjoy a hot dog or burger off the grill. You're welcome to drop by or stay for while to warm up or take a break from Trick-or-Treating. All are welcome! 

PLEASE NOTE: We would LOVE for all of you to discern your response to and engagement with Halloween according to your convictions and what the Spirit is saying to you and your family. We also love the idea of each person and family being connected in their neighbourhoods. So we bless and encourage you to respond accordingly in your home and neighbourhood. We do want to take the opportunity to be a warm and welcoming presence in Kitsilano, so if you'd like to partner with us in this, we would very much invite your participation. Please contact info@redemptionchurch.ca if you'd like to join us in hosting our neighbours!

The Pit Stop

Do you like: serving warm drinks?  Greeting people at the front door?  Sitting around a fire-pit?  Hanging out as a cozy couch potato in a living room?  Meeting the neighbours?  Guessing what the kids' costumes really represent? If you answered yes to any of these questions and are looking for a place to hang out on October 31, come by the church from 5-8pm.  We are opening our doors to the neighbourhood to be a warm presence - and very practically, a pit stop for any desperate Trick-or-Treaters.  We'll have hot drinks, our bathrooms, and some short videos 'in the living room' available for anybody who needs to get warmed up or take a break.

The Monday night Kits Oikos has taken the lead on hosting this event so if you would like to partner with them, please contact John Lippert.

PLEASE NOTE:  We would LOVE for all of you to discern your response to and engagement with Hallowe'en according to your convictions and what the Spirit is saying to you and your family.  We also love the idea of each person and family being connected in their neighbourhoods.  So we bless and encourage you to respond accordingly in your home and neighbourhood.   We do want to take the opportunity to be a warm and welcoming presence in Kitsilano, so if you'd like to partner with us in this, we would very much invite your participation.
