MOTHER'S DAY
Welcome along to our 10am service at 374 High Street, Motueka.

We pray you experience the love and joy only Jesus Christ can bring.
Pastor Shane and Kathryn Murray


Today we honour all our special mothers who have and have had such a special and important role in each of our lives.

We pray you are greatly blessed today, church, and are ready for a great morning complete with His agape love and presence!

"Honour your father and mother," which is the first commandment with promise: "that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth."   - Ephesians 6:2-3

"Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised."   - Proverbs 31:30

"A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie left for five people, promptly announces that she never did care for pie."
