What a great day we had yesterday. It was so good to see our families come together and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I love the way we celebrate with kids taking centre stage. What a talented bunch of kids we have in this church and wasn’t the choir amazing! We saw 365 people here on Sunday over the two services. Great to hear friends and family were being invited to church. I love your boldness and passion for people, well done! Thank you to everyone involved on stage and behind the scenes, you are all such a blessing to the church.
Christmas Box Appeal. Our target was to raise $3000.00 to pay for 100 boxes. We received a total of $3022.00 so goal achieved! Thank you everyone for your generosity.
Yesterday I preached from Isaiah 9:6-7 about the Jesus – a Child and Son. This was probably one of my most enjoyable of my messages that I’ve preached this year and will go down as a favourite. I feel there are some deep truths that will help you this Christmas and Holiday season. Have a listen this week and let it soak into your spirit as you make your preparations for the Holidays.
