Sunday 16 November 2014
Welcome along to our 10am and 7pm services at 374 High Street, Motueka.

Our prayer is that you experience the love and joy only Jesus Christ can bring into your life.
Pastor Shane and Kathryn Murray


Welcome to Al!ve Church of Christ Motueka.
'Living and loving life through Jesus'

This morning I will be carrying on with our theme "Where are you up to and what's your next step?"

Is it...
Encounter Jesus
Get connected with other believers
Journey healing
Be equipped
...or Go and occupy?

This morning I will be speaking to Healing and the Equipping part of our journey centred around the scripture we find in Luke 8 where Jesus says: "My mothers and brothers are those who hear God's word and put it into practice."  This morning we will look closely at this challenging statement from Jesus and how it can be applicable in each of our lives today.

Blessings,
Pastor Shane Murray
