MERRY CHRISTMAS
Welcome along to our 10am service today at 374 High Street, Motueka.

Merry Christmas to everyone.  We pray that you will all have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends.  What a great time of the year where we openly celebrate and worship Jesus Christ the saviour of the world!

Pastor Shane and Kathryn Murray


Good morning and welcome to church.

What a BIG day we had yesterday with Birdhurst Christmas in the Park 2013!  We may be a small church but we have a big voice for Jesus!  I love seeing our church mobilised actively, pursuing our church vision of preaching the gospel to all of Motueka.  Apart from the frustration of the weather we need to be proud of what we achieved last night and not let this take away from all our efforts.
Thank you for everyone's contribution of time and resources... We do it for His name -- Jesus.

Today is about celebrating the birth of Jesus; the true meaning of Christmas.  My Christmas message this morning has a slightly different angle but one that will give all glory to the Lord as we prepare to receive Jesus the next time He returns.

Special Christmas blessings to you all
From Shane and Kathryn and all the Murray family.
