Sunday 3 March 2013
Welcome along to our 10am and 5pm services today at 374 High Street, Motueka.

Please have a look at what is coming up this week and in the coming weeks.
Pastor Shane and Kathryn Murray


Hello everyone and welcome to church today.
I am quite overwhelmed with what God is doing in our midst as a church.  There is a special move of His Spirit upon us, and I believe it is just the beginning.  We live in exciting times.
As I challenged everyone last week I, belief + action = faith.  Together let us do more than just believe God's Spirit is moving, that our God can heal, deliver and set free... let us act on this belief so that faith may abound and His glory be revealed.
A special welcome to the many new families and individuals who have recently begun to attend our church.  It is so good to have you along and a part of our family of believers.  Be sure to speak to someone or myself about what happens during the week with our Life Groups and the different short courses that we run.

Today, one of our church elders Rob Payne will be speaking.  I really look forward to the Spirit filled message Rob always brings.  Be sure to attend our prayer and worship service tonight at 5pm.
Have a fantastic day church.

Bless you all
Pastor Shane
