Sunday 7 December 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'

Are you feeling ALIVE today?
We are excited that recently many newborn babies have arrived within our church family; and this morning Carly is going to have her little boy Israel B. dedicated.  This is a great chance to pray for and bless Israel.  Also to stand with Carly and her commitment, along with others in her church family, to raise Israel as a follower of Jesus.  Well done Carly.  It's such a fantastic way to start Israel's life.

Tonight is our last Encounter service for 2014.  Our Encounter evening services have been a HUGE success.  Many people have been deeply ministered to by the power of God and been radically set free to openly praise and worship our Lord.  Be sure to come tonight expectant to Encounter God.

Special blessings,
Ps Shane Murray
