"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:6-7
Another week to count down before Christmas is upon us. Another week of busyness, organization, final exams, hectic supermarkets. How thankful we can be, to be promised a peace that surpasses all understanding, and to have a gracious Heavenly Father who not only will hear our requests, but desires to. May we focus on resting and finding peace in our Saviour this week, whatever hustle and bustle it may bring.
The Sunday School Treat is this coming Lord's Day at 12pm. The children have been practicing lines and parts for a while now, and it would be great to a loving crowd support them as they treat us to a play! The final practice is this Saturday 3-6pm, the teachers would appreciate all children present with their parts learnt. A big thank you to all those involved and helping the children, and to the parents at home for ensuring attendance at practices and reiterating what has been learned in class time.
