Once a year we have an opportunity to give a love offering to God. It is appropriate that it is around the same time as Valentines day. It is your way of being thankful to God for all His blessings. This year our Love Offering will be on 16th February.
Some say that it should be directed to some project with some price tag, I don’t believe that is what it is about! It is a love offering between you and God given to Him through the church. This is not replacing your usual Tithe but and extra offering on top of what you would normally give. Generally, we give from our overflow, may this be a gift from your heart to God’s.
2 Corinthians 9:7 Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
UPDATE: Thank you church! Our love offering for the year totaled $5534
The Christian & Missionary Alliance of Australia is launching a new short series called Engage: The Heart of the Alliance
Operation Christmas Child is DEFINITELY going ahead again this year. Bearing in mind the social distancing restrictions it will take a slightly different format. We encourage you to start praying now about how many boxes God would have you complete and the creative ways you may go about doing this.
Last year 10.5 million shoe boxes were distributed worldwide, 4 million children enrolled in The Greatest Journey discipleship course and, of those, 1 in 5 children made a decision to follow Christ. Surely this is a great reason to participate in OCC.
- There will be no “starter items” for your boxes this year.
- Pre-printed Shoe Boxes (PPSB) will be available fro pickup from the Missions Centre from 4th August and church from Sunday 16th August
- Dedication Sunday will be SUNDAY 20 SEPTEMBER
- Watch for the videos and further announcements over the coming weeks in In Touch.
As we continue to minister in these extraordinary days it is important that we encourage and cheer each other on to continue our primary purpose - to make disciples. Reaching everyone, everywhere all the time can still be achieved online and our message will actually get extra traction in days of uncertainty. Many people have had their security rocked, and our ultimate security is the goodness of God and in our Saviour
