WELCOME TO YOUR CHURCH!
Motueka Church of Christ

Pastor Darryl & Kaye Schelbach, 374 High Street, MOTUEKA

A special welcome to you if you are visiting - please stay for a cuppa (or maybe an apple) after the service.


$3.00 worth of God
I'd like to buy $3 worth of God please!
Not enough to explode my soul or disturb my peace.
Just enough to feel good like a cup of warm milk or an hour in the sunshine.
I don't want enough of him to make me love a black person.
I want ecstasy not transformation.
I want the warmth of the womb not the new birth.
I'd like a pound of the eternal in a paper bag.
$3 worth of God please...

And so dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God.  Let them be a living and holy sacrifice-- the kind he will accept.  When you think of what he has done for you, is this too much to ask?  Don't copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is. -- Romans 12:1,2

God Bless ya!
Darryl & Kaye.


Today we welcome Andrew Bartlett as he shares about his missionary work in Russia and a word from God.
