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


Birthday girl, Ps Carissa Hannah is bringing the Word this Sunday...
Before Jesus performed a single miracle or preached the gospel, God confirmed his identity and position.  From this position as a loved Son of God, the wilderness had no hold on him.  From our identity we can overcome the wilderness and step into our God given purpose!  Identity grounded and established in who He is and who He calls us to be!

Looking forward to sharing this Sunday on our ‘Born Identity’.
Carissa

Looking forward to another exciting day at Alive Church :-)
Ps Shane

PRAYING FOR GOOD GOVERNMENT
from Pray for the Nation NZ prayer update
Wednesday 13 September edition
Editor: Brian Caughley
(Not necessarily the official view of Alive Church of Christ Motueka)

No matter who is in our next Government, which Party, which Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, who is in the Cabinet, and what coalition of Parties make up the whole Parliament, we need to always pray for good government.  The vast majority of our MPs will not be born-again, Bible-believing, God-honouring people.  Nevertheless we need to pray for them, and that they will, under God's hand, bring about good government for our people and land.

Please pray for a Government which will, to the best of their ability, be:
* Righteous - one which encourages people to live in right ways (ultimately defined by God)
* Just - fair to everyone.
* Honest.
* Wise - with a wisdom given by God, and not merely human wisdom.
* One which helps the weak, the poor, the needy and disadvantaged.
* One which helps the sick - physically and mentally.
* One which uses its income wisely.
* Seeks to benefit all of its people.
* Cares for the needs of other countries too.
* Has leaders who care, and who are in Government to serve their people and their country, not themselves.
* Has leaders whose lives are consistent with their position of leadership, respect and honour - that their private lives do not conflict with this.

Please pray for all Christian candidates standing for Election - that God's will shall be done in their lives; and for all Christians who will form part of our next Government - for God's wisdom, grace, inspiration and blessing to be upon them, and their ministry and service to our country.

Election day is next Saturday the 23rd of September.
