MOTUEKA CHURCH OF CHRIST
374 High St., Motueka.
Pastors: Fred & Colleen King.

Welcome to our Father's House.  We trust you find this a great time of sharing together around the Lord's Table, in His Word, and enjoying fellowship with the Saints.  If we can assist you today please make your request known to the door stewards or one of the Elders.  If you have no church home and you wish to consider this as: "the place of the planting of the Lord" please see Fred or Colleen, ph xxx xxxx.


From the Word:  Romans 12:9-13 (NIV)
Love must be sincere.
Hate what is evil,
Cling to what is good.
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.
Honour one another above yourselves.
Never be lacking in zeal,
But keep your spiritual fervour,
Serving the Lord.
Be joyful in hope,
Patient in affliction,
Faithful in prayer.
Share with God's people who are in need.
Practise hospitality.
