Welcome 16 January 2022

Acts 14:5-7
When an attempt was made by both Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to mistreat them and to stone them, they learned of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding country and there they continued to preach the gospel. (ESV)
Something very powerful was driving the apostles. Everyone was set to kill them, yet they didn't conclude thereby that preaching the gospel was a bad idea. They only found other audiences who might receive the News of Jesus well.
This in itself reminds us that there is something bigger than our life, and earthly comfort. It is Jesus, who is Life, and Eternal Confort.
Is it possible that in the comforts of our living and relative peace, we have settled for lesser idols, and easily forget the Ultimate Treasure in Christ? Would it be worth sharing the Treasure of His Gospel, even if it means less peace and comfort? 

Welcome – 25 December 2021

… an angel of the Lord
appeared to him in a dream, saying,
“Joseph, son of David, do
not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from
the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he
will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the
Lord had spoken by the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a
son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).

Mat 1:20-23

                                      

The world celebrates Christmas as a time of giving, a time
for family and food.  Let us not forget
the real reason for Christmas – Behold Immanuel, God with us!  Isn’t it amazing that the Creator of all
things humbled Himself to born of a woman, to live and die amongst us, all for
our benefit?  Join us as we celebrate His
birth.

Merry Christmas,

Mark

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” – Romans 1:16-17


Welcome Family in Christ Jesus
The apostle Paul gives a crucial reminder of the confidence that we have in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our confidence comes with the knowledge and conviction that the Gospel is the very power of God. We can take great joy and comfort that our confidence is not in what we have done, but in the power of God, who is able to save all that believe in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. What an awesome and mighty God we serve! Let us lift up our hearts and voices as we worship Him together this morning.

In Christ Alone

Matthew
