Well what a weekend we’ve just had with Aaron More at Burnside Campus and Ivan Wong Kee at City. We were just so blessed by the word that each of them brought around the sermon series “Jesus Said”.
I’m so excited by what I’m experiencing at each campus. I see new excitement and anticipation in the atmosphere. A sense of the Bigness of God about to explode over our Church. I love how God always has the final say. In the beginning He spoke and things were made, in the end He will speak and establish his rule and reign for all of eternity. But between these two points in time, God continues to speak. He speaks life over us, promises over us, truth over us, freedom over us.
There’s nothing that God cannot do with a word. One word from God is all we really need. I want to encourage you to allow God to continuously speak into your situation. Let him be part of your daily life and infuse you with faith, hope and love. The Author and Perfector of our faith, Is constantly writing the word on our hearts. Its truth strengthens us, sustains us, keeps us moving forward and giving us courage to try new things.
Thank you God for your Word, both spoken and Written. May it forever change us and set us up to live out all you planned for us both individually and as a Church. In your wonderful name. Amen
Let me share some amazing news. We are now up to 120 Christmas Boxes purchased for our Christmas appeal. We still have 3 weeks to go to reach our target of 200 boxes. We will be taking up a special Christmas Offering on the 15th of December at our combined Kiwi Christmas Celebration. So if you haven’t already done so why not by a box for $30.00 and bless a family this Christmas.
Speaking of the 15th of December we are having a Combined service celebrating the Birth of Jesus Christ at our 9am and 10.45am services. This is a combined campuses service at the City Campus so plan to be there and bring people and let’s enjoy these services together.
Please keep praying for our transition in one Church. We are doing so well in connecting. The staff have been amazing at both Campuses. I want to thank every staff member and those who help make our Church what it is. You are all amazing and I know God is with us, guiding every decision and every step.
This Sunday we start our new series “Choose Joy” as we step into this new month. Why not invite someone to one of our services. We promise to always give an opportunity for prayer and for Salvation. You never know, this Sunday could just be the one that that loved one you have been praying for makes a decision to follow Jesus. Have a go and see what might happen.
Have an amazing week. Be a blessing to someone. See you this Sunday.
Nu and Taua.
