Sunday 7 July 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.
We had such a fantastic 24 Hour Prayer and Praise event last weekend.  Thank you so much to all those who spoke, worship led, did sound and media, provided food, cleaned, vacuumed and just turned out to give all their praise and worship to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.  It was such a powerful time.  I loved how all the Prayer and Praise spilled over into an overwhelming sense of the presence of God at our Sunday morning service.  I have never experienced an atmosphere of praise so strong before.  God truly does inhabit the praises of His people.

This morning we move onto our fourth Core Value, Discipleship.  Discipleship is key to seeing all believers living lives full of purpose and meaning for Him being active in spiritual gifts to shine bright for Him no matter where we are or what we are doing.  This morning we will look at the significance of being discipled well and the importance of considering who we are discipling.

Proverbs 27:17
New International Version (NIV)
"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."

Remember, we meet tonight at 5pm for Prayer and Praise.  5pm for 30mins - 5:30 for 30min message from Carolyn Greaney - this will lead into ministry time, corporate prayer and personal devotional time until 7pm.

Bless you, church.
Pastor Shane.

FOOD BANK SUNDAY
Have you ever wanted to help someone, be a life saver or see someone's life touched but you're never quite sure how to do that?  Have you thought about feeding the poor or seeing God supply supernaturally for those in our community, but maybe it's a little out of your comfort zone?

Here is a simple and easy way you can make a difference in someone's life!  Today we are having a food bank appeal.  If you have forgotten, don't worry.  You can bring something next week.  The need within our community is great and therefore we need as much help and support as you can offer.  For more information on how you can help, please see Lesley or Carolyn.

THANK YOU - ENTER HIS GATES 2013
We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who was involved with our 24 hour prayer event, Altar of Incense.  This was such an incredible 24 hours and we are already busy dreaming and scheming about the next Enter His Gates, with dreams to take it nationally!  Keep an eye out for what's coming up because we believe this is just the beginning of an incredible journey God is taking us on.
