Big Church Part II

What Happens at Altar Call

If you have been to an alter call at the Big Church, you will know.  During the Altar Call ceremony, audience members are invited to the front of the auditorium to accept Jesus as their Personal Savior.  The ceremony begins with everyone reciting the Sinner's Prayer. Upon conclusion of reciting the Sinner's Prayer, an usher will lead you off to another room for initial Brainwashing.  During this first Brainwashing Session, you will meet up with other people who have accepted Jesus.  You are given a pen, paper, Bible and a Mr Big Chocolate Bar.  This was the second Mr Big Bar that I received from the Big Church. During this small meeting, you will be read a few bible verses and asked why you decided to accept Jesus.  You will also be suggested to attend a Cell Group.

What is a Cell 

A Cell is a small group of 12 people according to the G 12 Vision.  G 12 stands for Government of 12 people.  In the cell Group you will discuss your personal life, the Bible.  If you need serious prayer or Ministry from the Lord, you may be suggested to go on the Encounter Weekend for Brainwashing.

Events at the big Church

If you are attending Big Church Functions, please be cautious.  Do not give your personal information when you attend.  Best off, Do not attend, you will get Brainwashed.

The Cause

Taken at The Cause, April 2009
The Cause is almost like a Sunday Service with a few twists.  This event features games, food, live band, skits, video presentations, and a lecture by the Speaker of the house.  Sometimes before the band hits the stage, the dance team will perform a dance number.  The band will play a couple of upbeat songs to get the audience hyped up for the event.  There may a few games like Blindfold Musical Chairs or any other silly games the leaders decided. Following the games, there may be a video presentation and other skits before the lecture.  Following the Lecture, there will be an altar call, the first opportunity for Brainwashing.  Following the formal events of the evening, there may be food and beverages set up on the side of the auditorium for everyone to enjoy.

The Encounter Weekend: The Danger of Big Church

What is the Encounter? An Encounter is a retreat course in Freedom (IE, Bitterness, bondage, etc). People will be set free through the Power of the Cross, (Big Church-encounter).

What happens at the Encounter Retreat

Once you put out your $120 - 150 Smackers, you will attend four Pre-Encounter workshops with the leaders.  These workshops will ensure you and other participants are prepared for Brainwashing.

On the Encounter Weekend, you will be at a retreat facility for three days away from distractions.  If you are Gay, or if you have non christian friends, you will be brainwashed.  The church or Encounter Leaders will tell you to change your ways and it may not be the best for you.

Other Events

Ignite Barrie: A multi-church event held at the Bethel Country Club (Bethel Community Church) on the third Friday of every month.  Attend this event with caution because of Brainwashing

City Hall Prayer:  This prayer meeting is held on the second Wednesday of the month at Barrie City Hall. Big Church members gather once a month to pray where decisions are made for the City of Barrie.

Cell Groups:  Cell Groups are held weekly in private homes or at the church on a weekly basis.  Church members are brainwashed in cell groups.

One Church, One Voice:  A Canada Day Multi-Church worship concert at Memorial Square/Meridian Place during the Promenade Days festivities in Downtown Barrie.  Brainwashing is very little. The concerts seem to get slow because the pastors want to talk over the hour. I was smart not to fall into the brainwashing trap.

Former Events

Rev: This is a bible study for teenagers and a brainwashing opportunity

Full Throttle, Men's Breakfast:  This is a Big Church get-together for men that is held at a near by restaurant.  You will have to bring your own money and order your own food.

Comedy Nights, Movie Nights:  These events are fundraisers for the church to collect money.  Each event usually costs $5 - 10 Smackers.

The Cause:  This event is now transformed to Ignite Barrie.
