PREACHER'S PEN | PASTOR JEFF SPENCER

Put On The New Self

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

- Colossians 3:1-4 ESV

More From 'Bulletin'

Bulletin l 7th July

PREACHER'S PEN

with Andrew Kelly

Fellowship is essential for growth to maturity.

Ephesians 4:15-16

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

Spiritual growth does not happen in isolation.

Jesus’ plan for our individual growth is that we would minister to One another and see His whole body built up in love through serving one another.

[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.

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

THANK YOU!

from Sharon Bigwood

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.

In Christian love Sharon Bigwood
