"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13-14
HAPPY NEW YEAR! As we look forward to a new year may we press on to the prize, and keep our eyes heavenward. So often we set new year resolutions of goals we set out to achieve - be it health goals, work promotions or school grades. Each year begins with a bang and every intention to carry on how we start. Yet pressing toward the goal of Christ is something we truly ought to be steadfast about this year. May we strive to know Him more and more each day, individually and as a local church.
The gospel weekend outreach is set for the 24th and 25th of January. There will be two evenings of messages and a meal to accompany. It is a great opportunity for us to be making contacts in the community surrounding the hall, and to encourage our contacts to come out and hear the gospel. We really need all in fellowship to be actively involved in this work. Please be exercised to invite friends and family.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY
The Wednesday night prayer meeting and Bible study resumes as usual this week. We have had two weeks of recessions due to the holiday season. We will continue on the second half of II Timothy 2 with the outline given by Peter Lansing a few weeks ago. This is due to a lack of time to overview the passage properly. The meeting Wednesday week, will be dedicated to a Q and A session. Please be in contact via the contact page if you have any questions you would like answered, or contact one of the brethren who have led the first two chapters.
YOUNG PEOPLE'S MINISTRY
This meeting resumes this coming Lord's Day. Please note that this monthly activity will now be hosted on the second Sunday of the month. This is to prevent several clashes later in the year. There is a sign up sheet for refreshments at the back of the hall, please sign up if you are able to help out.
