We are Alive!
Pastors Shane and Kathryn Murray


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

Pastor Shane is bringing Part 5 of our series 'Every Life Matters' this morning.

Today is the final instalment for our series.  I love how the gospels reveal that Jesus was constantly out speaking, meeting, dining, healing; and generally just occupying His space everywhere He went for the Kingdom.  Roman soldiers, tax collectors, Pharisees, the sick, the lame, the ones who were known as sinful... Jesus met with them all, loved them all, had time for them all.

Today it is about a call to action; no matter where we find ourselves every day, in work, at school, at home with the kids... Likewise we need to occupy our space for Jesus and His Kingdom.

We do this because Every Life Matters.

Bless you all today, church
Pastor Shane
