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.

CRECHE HELP WANTED

As a church we run a creche during our 10:30am Family Service on Sunday mornings so that parents in the church are able to sit in and be involved in the service while our volunteers keep their babies/toddlers entertained. But, we need more volunteers to help! 

If you are a youth who is 16 and older, a parent, young adult, senior, male or female, anyone who is willing and able to help out, or if you want more information about helping out, speak to Esther Meintjes at church or via message (0488 206 516), or email the church office (office@craigmorechurch.org) and we will pass on the message for you. Thank you!

YOUTH CAMP DONATIONS

Running a camp is an amazing opportunity to build deeper relationships with the youth, however, it does come with it’s costs. The camp cost is $100 this year, but in reality it does end up costing more than that. 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’

Thank you for your support, Cross & Crown Youth Leaders

As we are connected to Hope Christian College we will be donating the stickers to the school so they are able to redeem the stickers for new school equipment.

PREACHER'S PEN

with Jeff Spencer

But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning. [John 15:26-27]

What does the Holy Spirit testify about Chirst?

1)He is bound to be faithful to the purpose of the one who has sent him.

2)He is the Spirit of truth. No matter if it is uncomfortable or unpopular he cannot compromise or withhold the truth.

3)He comes fresh from the presence of a passionately burdened Father - who He knows intimately - desperate to redeem His creation)

How do you think the Holy Spirit could use the gifts he has given you to help fulfil the mission he is sent on? When do find it hardest to maintain the truth in a hostile world?

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.
