Sunday 5 August 2012
Welcome along to our services today at 374 High Street, Motueka.

10am - We hope you will enjoy what we have in store for you this morning.  Please have a look at what is coming up this week and in the coming weeks.

Pastor Shane and Kathryn Murray.


Good morning church.
LOVE GOD - LOVE OTHERS   Love covers sin

As we continue our theme of loving God and loving others, this morning I want to take an in-depth look at a piece of scripture found in 1 Peter 4 v 8 which says "Above all love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins."
As we look into the meaning of this scripture this morning let us all be open to the revelation of the meaning of this scripture and the application of it to our lives.

Bless you church
Brent Pickworth
