A Day at Kurios

Morning prayer

Each and every day begins with gathering to welcome Jesus into our midst, to thank God for the things in store for us, and to dedicate ourselves to serving our Kurios.

Learning

Learning

All our learning experiences will strive to be wholistic, experiential, and interactive. We will generally use our morning block to learn from experts, from writings, and from reflection on experiences. Topics will include:
 

  • Scripture - KURIOS Daily Bible Readings (.pdf, 1.2MB)
  • Prayer
  • Identity
  • Spiritual disciplines
  • Ministry and giftedness
  • Leadership
  • Justice issues
  • Creation care

Participants who complete Kurios may be awarded entrance credit by select colleges.

See specific course descriptions here.

Working

Working

Afternoons will include space to work on our learning activities and assignments, our ministry skills and activities, and our acts of service to one another and others outside our community.

Kurios participants will actively seek to identify their spiritual gifts through experimentation.  We will create space and resources to assist participants as they pursue areas where they feel God has uniquely created them to be difference-makers in the lives of others.

As a community, we will share responsibility for the various “tasks of life”, such as preparing meals and cleaning the shared spaces we use.

Afternoons will also block out time for physical activity/exercise, with participants setting goals and choosing how they intend to develop habits for their physical health.

Playing

Playing

Living in community brings many opportunities to enjoy God, our world, and each other.  We will talk about “re-creation” instead of “entertainment” and help participants understand the difference.

While at our “home base” at Gull Lake Centre, we have many opportunities for re-creation: a full size gymnasium, climbing wall, and games area. Outdoor re-creation includes walking, biking, skating, hockey, snow-shoeing, and more.

We will also plan off-site trips, movie nights, tournaments, and whatever other great ideas they can dream up.

Our travel times will also include opportunities to discover and enjoy all that God has created for us as we visit and enjoy destinations across Western Canada.

evening prayer

At the close of the day, we once again gather as a community to pray. We look back on the day, with thankful hearts as we recall all that God did in and through us.
