Sunday 5 May 2013
Welcome along to our 10am service 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


In John 15:15, Jesus tells us that He no longer calls us servants but rather friends!  He then goes on to say that, unlike a servant, a friend knows the plans of the master, therefore I believe that what Jesus plans and purposes for us (both individually and corporately as a church whanau) is no mystery, but rather, as His friends, He wants to share His plans with us.  I believe that He even wants some creative input from us so we can co-labour with Him for His Kingdom cause:  Exciting!

With this in mind I am excited to say that Term 2 will be centred on our vision for us as a church, defining the Kingdom culture of Motueka Church of Christ and living boldly and radically in that culture to see the will of the Father fulfilled through His church.

Today's message is titled "Culture of the Kingdom."
Bless you all today, church.
Ps Shane.
