The 2022 Season's Message: The Heart Of Christmas
At the heart of Christmas are the four themes of the Advent season: Hope, Peace, Joy & Love.
We lit a candle & opened an Advent Calendar door each week to represent these four themes. All of our Catalyst family (and their guests!) were invited to join us in person and receive a special Advent Gift each Sunday.
We invited folks to follow along with The Heart of Christmas Daily Devotional book to really get in the spirit of Christmas and focus on the things that matter most. Discover all that God has for you by getting to the heart of Christmas.
Pastor Gilles invited Stan and Liza
and their family up front to
light the 1st candle of the
Catalyst 2022 Advent Celebration.
And as a special gift, everyone went home with a Focus Stone.

What fun they had! Lots of sugary pancakes were devoured while enjoying the fact that the kids got to roll out of bed and come to church in the PJs!

Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes - 2022
Lead by Sonya Reid, Catalyst Church was able to send 127 boxes, filled with God's word to children who need it most.
After a hugely successful packing party on November 13th, Catalyst Church Leaders quickly realized this was going to be a record breaking year!
Boxes were lovely stacked on the stage and prayed over before being shipped out! Then the entire church body prayed along with Pastor Gilles Gentley for the boxes life-saving mission!
Ladies of Catalyst Church on Raceway took an evening to learn how to make Christmas wreaths like the pros! We were in luck because the pros of 802 Wreaths accepted our invitation to join us for a wreath decorating workshop.
It happened Tuesday, November 1st from 6 to 8pm at Catalyst Church.
Thank you to Sarah Gentley for organizing.
