Sunday 2 December 2012
Welcome along to our service 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


A big welcome to you all today.  We are glad that you are considering coming along!

At home our Christmas tree is up!  Once again, Christmas is just around the corner.

This Christmas, let us all be sure to remember what Christmas is truly about: our loving Heavenly Father sending His only begotten Son Jesus to earth, His death and His resurrection for the purpose of salvation to all who call upon His name.  This is the good news of Jesus Christ; this is the Christmas message.

This morning Rob Payne will be speaking on the unfailing love from our Heavenly Father.

"And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
                                          -- Ephesians 3:18-19 (NIV)

I know I'm looking forward to what will be a great message from Rob.

Blessings - Pastor Shane
