Our Mission Statement is to:
Save, Worship, Equip, Empower, Perfect = SWEEP

Haggai 1:8, 13 & 14
"A call to build the house of the LORD!"

8: "Now go up into the hills, bring down timber, and build my house.  Then I will take pleasure in it and be honoured," says the LORD.

13: Then Haggai, the LORD's messenger, gave the people this message from the LORD:  "I am with you," declares the LORD!

14: So the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of the whole remnant of God's people.  They came and began to work on the house of the LORD Almighty, their God.

Other Family News
Welcome to our church family Mr. & Mrs. T. & E. Fifita.

Jonathan & Melanie will be leaving for Napier close to the end of this month.  Take the opportunity to wish them well as they leave to make their new home "up north."

We think of Troy S. as he suffers the loss of his 14 year old daughter who was drowned in a Twizel swimming pool last week.  Troy came to our church earlier this year to learn about our programmes and church policies etc. as he has an active part in the new church developing under the guidance of Ross & Glynda B.  His address is in our church phone book if you wish to write to him.  Troy -- our prayers and sympathy are with you and your family.
