Indoor Carols 2017 Saturday December 16: Sausage sizzle from 5:00pm with Indoor Carols at 6:30pm. Bring the family, friends, neighbours, and yourself! *SAVE THE DATE*
Welcoming DDT: We will conclude this series tonight at 7pm, bringing together everything we’ve been working on so far.
Next DDT: Forgiving – Sept 17 & 24, 7:00–8:00pm. Scripture says we are to forgive as the Father has forgiven us, yet when deep emotions are involved it is one of the hardest things for us to do. This workshop will focus on a set of steps called Forgiving Others. We will ‘road test’ these steps using the story of Joseph. You will also get to take home a similar set of steps called Seeking Forgiveness. Individual follow-up will be available if you want to work on some personal issues of forgiveness as a result of this workshop.
Kingdom Prayer Night: Term 3 Kingdom Prayer Night for the whole church will be tomorrow night, September 11 at 8pm. This is an opportunity for us to gather together and seek His presence and blessing for all we do in His name – as Moses said to the Lord, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.”
