PREACHER'S PEN | Ryan Windle

“Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus ), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” “No,” they answered. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” - John 21:1-7 NIV

CYC CAMP SPONSORSHIPS

It’s that time of year again when Amy Day is looking for people who would like to sponsor campers to attend the summer camps at CYC El Shaddai. It allows children to go to camp who would otherwise not be able to afford to go.

One of our own young people in our fellowship has been able to attend camp for the past 9 years thanks to the generosity of those who have given throughout the years. She has blossomed in her faith and is now giving back and mentoring other young campers coming through. This is an example of how your giving will have eternal benefits. 

If you have a child who would like to go, but you are unable to afford the camp fees, please feel free to contact me to see if we can help send your child to camp.

More From 'Bulletin'

Bulletin l 14 April 2019

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.

Bulletin I 31st March 2019

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.
