OPEN DOORS

In our service today we will be hearing from Tim Reid who works with Open Doors Australia.

[Open Door’s] mission is to strengthen and prepare Christians living in persecution, and to mobilise the Australian church to identify with the global body of Christ.

Open Doors work in over 70 countries supporting Christians who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus.

In The Field: Open Doors work through local partners and build long-term relationships in over 70 countries around the world. They partner with people who know and understand what is needed to see the church strengthened and the gospel proclaimed. Their mission is to help the local church transform their nation for Jesus.

In Australia: Open Doors partner with Christians and local churches in Australia. Your support enables believers living in some of the darkest places on Earth to be a light for Christ. Their mission is to make sure that the persecuted church is remembered in every church, every Bible study and every home.

CROSS & CROWN YOUTH - CAMP REWIND

Thank you for your support of our Youth Camp at El Shaddai Camping Centre over the long weekend. We wouldn’t have been able to run the camp without your financial support and prayers. We ended up with 35 people attending camp, which was the exact number of people we needed without extra costs, and the amount of money donated by the church was enough to cover all of the extra costs.

We felt very blessed to see how the Lord provided so richly through the support of the church family at Craigmore.

We had a great time together playing messy games, giant swing, storm the lantern, an amazing race, and other activities.

We enjoyed times of worship together and being challenged in our devotion time, focusing on if we as leaders could turn back time, what we wish we knew in our Christian walk. We also ran a Q&A session on the Sunday night where the youth had the opportunity to ask questions about God and what was on their heart.

We believe the Lord really used the time away camp to impact the youth’s hearts and attitudes. We are looking forward to how what was learnt on camp will affect their lives and walks with God.

BOOK DONATIONS

The creche is looking for donations of Bible Story books for toddlers. If anyone has any Bile story books they are willing to donate, please bring them into the church.

GAVIN & JANET PETERSEN

Our missionaries, Gavin and Janet, need our help in a very specific way. Their 20 year old car is becoming unreliable and is continually requiring maintenance. Due to the very high cost of vehicles in Portugal, we are opening a Car Fund for the Petersen’s.

A target of $30,000 has been set to allow for the purchase of a reliable vehicle suitable for ministry. Donations can be sent directly to CCC's bank account or placed in our weekly offerings (mark envelope “Petersen Car Fund”).

We are also notifying AMT of this opportunity for others to support the Petersen’s but it would be an added blessing to the Petersens to see a substantial proportion come from their home church

I would like to thank my church family for your recent prayers, messages, calls and flowers following my emergency surgery. A big thank you to those who provided us with meals whilst I was recovering, this was a wonderful (yummy) blessing to me and my family.

My recovery is going really well and your support during this time has been greatly appreciated. I give thanks to God for those He has brought to Craigmore and the personal blessing you are to me.

PREACHER'S PEN

with Phil Emery

Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. John 16:24

As Believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we have the huge privilege of being able to go directly to our Heavenly Father, asking Him for the things we need. And according to this verse, we will receive what we ask for.

Thank you Lord for Your love, Your mercy and Your grace that is given freely to us everyday and thank you for the assurance we see in John 16:24, that you definitely answer our prayers.

Running a camp is an amazing opportunity to build deeper relationships with the youth, however, it does come with it’s costs.

In order to keep the costs down for the youth who want to come we are looking for anyone who would be willing to donate towards the running of youth camp this year.

If you would like to donate towards please put in an envelope and place in the offering OR transfer to the Church Account and change the description to ‘YC Donation’

PREACHER'S PEN

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work" 2 Timothy 3:16, 17

The Bible (Scriptures or the Word of God) is the most remarkable book ever written. The writing was done by about 40 men of several countries and many occupations. They wrote over a period of about 1500 years and in 3 languages (Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek). Yet the Bible is a well-organised unity with one great theme and central Figure - Jesus Christ. All of this would be impossible unless the Bible had one supreme Author - and it did - the Holy Spirit of God. "for prophecy (Scripture) never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit" II Peter 1:21

Abraham Lincoln, who was responsible for abolishing slavery in U.S. and was its greatest president, said this about the Bible

"I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from the Saviour of the World is communicated to us through this Book...All things most desirable for man's welfare, here and hereafter, are to be found portrayed in it"

The Word of God has power (Hebrews 4:12), it is able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ (II Timothy 3:15) and through it the child of God can grow and be eternally blessed. Don't let it gather dust on a shelf. Read it, study it, hear it, memorise it and meditate on it. The great evangelist Dwight L. Moody once said "The Scriptures were not given to increase our knowledge but to change our lives".

EASTER REFLECTION

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Romans 5:8-11

Jesus died on the cross for you. He wore a crown of thorns and was nailed to a tree because He loves you...and He wants to have a personal relationship with you today.

PREACHER'S PEN | PASTOR ANDREW KELLY

ASSURANCE OF SALVATION

“For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. 16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:14-17

New life in Christ is one of complete transformation; of death to sin and self, to life under the lordship of Christ. Our lives are no longer lived for ourselves, but for the one who died for us and was raised again.
