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

Pastor Shane will be sharing from the Word this morning on
REDISCOVERING THE ART OF CELEBRATION
Part 6.
Today we press on with our theme.  Our heart for this theme is to remind ourselves of why we come together as followers of Jesus every Sunday.  Is it to catch up with friends, for the teaching, healing, prayer, our love for music, the great sense of community, the coffee, or maybe it is just because that is what we do on Sundays?

However, I believe our first priority and purpose of why we gather should be to purely worship our God; to celebrate His goodness, His grace and His mercy, and do this in a way that is extravagant and joyful.

So, regardless of our own agenda for church or the different challenges we are facing in our lives or what we have going on, today let's take time to put all of that to one side and joyfully celebrate our God.

Today as we gather together may we continue to Rediscover the Art of Celebration.

Psalm 100
1 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before Him with joyful songs.


Bless you, church.
Pastor Shane
