Sundays 4 & 11 January 2009
Welcome along to our 10a.m. service on the 4th and 11th of this month and a special welcome to visitors. Pastor Brent Pickworth will be preaching on both mornings. Kids' church will be running subject to numbers. There will be no evening service on either date.

Happy New Year!
We hope that you've made the most of 2008 and are pressing forward into new things in Christ for the year to come. We pray a blessing on all families represented here today and trust that you'll have a worshipful and Christ-filled new year wherever it may take you. Make the most of the holidays, enjoy your time with us, and let's all be careful out there on those roads and beaches and hiking tracks! :)

You Can Still Donate
Thanks to all those who gave to the KiwiLink Zimbabwe appeal. Those of you who would still like to give to this, please use the specially marked envelopes for that (there are still some around) or mark on your envelope that you want the money to go to the KiwiLink appeal.

Great Steps of Obedience!
Congratulations Jared, Paul, Miriam, Ainslie and Bonnie on your baptisms. May we as a church be mindful of those new to the Faith to pray for and guide them in their walk like the Bible encourages us to. Let's be in prayer at this time for our pastors and leaders as well. They do a marvellous job with all of us!

Update on Mary
Mary has a miracle. She doesn't have to do the gluten-free diet! She wishes to thank all those who've prayed for her. She is adjusting well to the recent loss of John her lifetime husband and would appreciate ongoing prayer for more of God's peace and His enabling and for Godly wisdom regarding health and daily living concerns.
