Good Morning Church,
Well it seems as if we may have passed the worst of the winter months and can now get back into outdoors living again. I’m not sure how your garden is looking but I’ve got a bit of cleaning up to do in mine. A lot of dead plants, trees., weeds that managed to stick around all winter. But in amongst the mess there’s great signs of new life with flowers and daffodils appearing. It’s great to see colour and life back in the garden. This can be a picture of our lives. We might have been feeling like life is just one big mess at the moment. Not a lot going on, just weeds and dead stuff all around you.
I want to declare a new season over your life. A season of life, a season of colour in what was barren and dead. It’s a new day!! God is doing a new thing in your heart and in your life. Let’s celebrate together and remind ourselves that he who controls the seasons also controls our lives. Those promises he gave you long ago, he has not forgotten. So speak them out like seeds planted in a garden and water that promise with faith, in time it will grow and bear fruit.
This Sunday at our 10am and 5pm services we are celebrating the amazing Father’s in our lives. With this we have great spot prizes for Dads to win, we have a fun challenge for a couple of Dads and we want to award one dad the title ‘Dad of the Year’ which comes with a great gift. So we need your help to make this a great service. Firstly we need you to invite every dad your know to church this Sunday. Bring the whole family. And secondly we need you to go online today on behalf of your family to nominate your Dad. http://www.dadoftheyear.nz/ make sure you click on Christchurch as your local Elim church.
Ultimately this Sunday we are celebrating our Father in heaven, who is a “Good, good Father”. So make sure you’re here to support and love on all the Dads we have.
God is with you today. Let his love surround you and his words fill your heart. Looking forward to seeing you this Sunday.
Believing with you.
