MERRY CHRISTMAS

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

As 2015 draws to a close, I sense the need to speak a message titled 'Finishing Well'.
Paul the apostle said "I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."

So today we will be looking at some keys to how we finish 2015, and life in general, well.

Remember tonight at 5pm is our last Key Leaders meeting for 2015.  This is about getting together over food and saying a big thanks to all our wonderful volunteers and leaders of 2015.  This meeting is open to all who have served on our roster and also to those interested in getting involved in leadership.

Bless you, church,
Shane and Kathryn Murray.
