Jesus came and told His disciples, “I have given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Isn’t that a challenge to all of us – making disciples of all nations? As a church we take this very seriously, and on Sunday 1 October at an open forum (after the church service), leaders will be sharing with you their vision for where they believe God is leading their ministry, and how we can make this statement a reality.
Cindy’s family would like to thank you all for your support over the past few weeks, particularly at the Service of Celebration on Friday.
I’m sure, on behalf of the church, we would like to thank Laura and all those who helped out, during Summer Fun. It has been truly amazing, and we want to keep this type of outreach up, so we are going to be looking at opening Café Church as soon as possible. It will be opened on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If you are able to help out, or would like more information please contact Laura either in person or via email@example.com.
There are a number of birthdays coming up, why not spend a few seconds sending them a birthday text.
- Sam’s birthday is today (5 September)
- Andrew’s Rix’s Birthday – Tuesday 12 September
- Sara Matthew’s birthday – Thursday 14 September
- Gordon Lambert’s birthday – Friday 15 September
- Nathan’s birthday – Monday 18 September
- Andy’s birthday – Wednesday 20 September
Please pray for Mark and Sara Spruce. Sara’s mum’s funeral is on Friday and she is finding it very tough; her dad died just a few months ago. Also, Mark has started a new job in Derby, and I’m sure they would value our prayers, as they relocate.
This Sunday 10 September, Andrea is continuing our theme of Obstacles – and is talking about how ‘relationships’ can 'get in the way'….
No matter what your day may bring, remember these words from Isaiah 40:31… but those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
Have an amazing week. God bless. Andrea
