Sunday 6 May 2012
Welcome along to our church service today at 374 High Street, Motueka.

10am - Rob Payne is speaking this morning.  We trust you will enjoy the service and hope you will stay afterwards for a cup of tea or coffee and fellowship.

Also, if you are a volunteer in any way for our church, we would love to see you at our Key Leaders meeting tonight at 5pm.
Bless you all today, Pastor Shane Murray.


This term our theme is 'Love God, love others' based around the words spoken by Jesus in the gospel of Matthew:

Matthew 22:37-39
New International Version (NIV)
37 "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'  38 This is the first and greatest commandment.  39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.'"

We are excited about this term and are presently putting together some great initiatives of how we can all be a part to impact our community simply by "loving others."
This morning I am really looking forward to Rob P.'s message centred around our new theme.

Bless you all
Pastor Shane
