Father’s Day Service Special
Well this Sunday we honour all our amazing Dads on Father’s Day. It’s a special time and to help us celebrate we have Excel Performing Arts School from Auckland with us. They have always brought a powerful message through performance, dance and music. It’s going to be an amazing service so make sure you bring your Dad, Spiritual Father and the whole family. After the service we will be sharing American style hot dogs in our newly renovated Power zone space.
Then in the evening at our Focus service, starting at 5pm, we will be having a shared meal together. So it’s planning to be an all-out amazing day in the house of God. Come to both meetings this Sunday and keep inviting people to come along too.
Trip to China and Cambodia
If you haven't already heard, I’m heading over to China and Cambodia on the 10th of September. I’ll be preaching at both services that Sunday then getting on a plane to Auckland at 8pm in order to catch a flight to Hong Kong at 11.59pm. The purpose of the trip is to represent Elim NZ at a Elim Global Missions Conference in Cambodia. This will be a great opportunity for me to be with over 1000 missionaries from over 32 Nations.
I’ll be stopping over first in China for a few days to see first-hand a couple of Drug Rehab Centres that our churches in Auckland have set up and also visit two underground churches.
Speaking with a couple from church yesterday I said that I know I will be inspired by the faith of the people I meet, both in China and in Cambodia. To think that these people give their lives for the sake of the Gospel and to help those in need. ( I can sense my heart pumping as a write these words.)
I want to assure you all that in my time away the team are all ready to go. We have such amazing leaders and staff and Elders in our church. I have absolute confidence in them and you should too. Unfortunately Taua and the girls won’t be coming with me on this trip, so could I ask a favour of you all as a church. Please keep an eye on them for me. I’d appreciate it greatly.
Prayer Activation on Tuesdays
Finally I just wanted to thank Sue Doyle for running such an outstanding course on Prayer Activation. If you haven’t been to it yet, get to the next one. I loved the teaching and releasing that happens on the night and strongly lead by Sue.
Space for Lease update:
We are in negotiations with 3 potential tenants for our spaces and hope to have this finalised in the next week or two. But in saying that there is still space available. If you know of any people or groups looking for space please pass on their information to us at reception.
I want to encourage you all to lift the level of expectation as you come to our Sunday gathering. I’m convinced God wants to see breakthrough in healing, miracles in our Church. Let’s help create the atmosphere by coming expectant.
Believing with you,
Nu and Taua.
