The Inside Column 4/5

Good Morning and a very warm welcome to all.
Starting this week we have the Marriage Course celebration dinner, with the course starting a week later. This is a great opportunity for as us a church to serve our community, to encourage and straighten peoples marriages, and to be a witness for Christ at the same time. We got this email the other day which I would like to share with you, (I have changed the names).

Dear Phil,

Thanks so much for the information about the next Marriage Course. Tony and I did this course a few years ago and found it very beneficial. Twelve months ago our son was married and I thought of recommending the course to them as soon as I received your invitation. Today they joined us for dinner and I had opportunity to ask them if they were interested – amazingly enough they were both keen. Without going into detail I really feel they could benefit heaps from doing this course and am praying you still have space to take them. Please could you register – we are going to pay for them so please let me know how much it is and I will get that to you. Thanks heaps!

It’s not too late for you to invite some people you know, bring them to the celebration dinner on Wednesday at 6.30pm. If you can’t bring someone but would like to be involved, you could offer to help one night in the kitchen helping serve and doing the dishes. If you would like to make a donation to the running costs of the course that would be very helpful as well as we are trying to make it affordable to everyone. Maybe you would like to sponsor a couple? Please pray for the course, those attending and those helping run the course. As I have been saying a lot lately – “We are blessed to be a blessing to others”.

We are starting a new series with the theme The Mission of God. Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be looking at questions like; Does God have a mission?, What might that mission be?, How do we fit in the mission?, How do we live out the mission? and What are the benefits of being involved in the mission? We are going to be taking passages from all over the Bible to see the big picture of the Mission of God.

I would still like to hear from you if you would like a certain topic preached on or a theme you might like to look at, drop me a note at the office.

I hope the holidays have gone well for you all.
