What a fantastic job church family! On Sunday we had 361 boxes with a promise of another 35 to come and even more keep being dropped off. We have well and truly reached our goal of 400 boxes. That's 400 children and their families that will be blesses and also have the opportunity to hear the gospel. Continue to pray for all those that will received these shoebox gifts.
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.
We invite you to be a part of a special C&MA Christmas Day offering that will assist our C&MA Bible College in Papua in training new pastors and workers.
The C&MA in Papua have had some very real challenges in the last few years. They have asked if we could help sponsor some Bible College students preparing for ministry. It costs $1500 pa per student.
We encourage you to donate through your church offering and mark the gift "Christmas Day 2019 C&MA".
