Dear eNews Friends & Family,
“For in this month the Lord your God brought you out of Egypt by night”
It was under the cover of darkness that God delivered Israel from the terrible bondage of Egypt. Moses is pointing this fact out to the new generation about to enter the land.
God uses darkness for your good!
We have been through a ‘dark night’ of immense global challenges and for many, personal difficulties. Yet in that darkness God has been at work doing a good thing.
We are being readied and prepared for a big season coming.
Someone once prayed, ‘God why are you taking me through such difficult flood waters? God replied, ‘Because your enemies can’t swim’
The Egyptians couldn’t swim either as the red sea closed in over them and set Israel free.
God is bringing you through to a new place and bringing us through to a significant season.
As we teach on ‘daring faith’, let’s make sure that we
We were all so encouraged this week as we held our first family forum since lockdown.
So many people joined together by live stream from various in-person locations.
It was a good opportunity to talk about finances, governance updates and so many praise reports of increase and growth across the many ministries of the church – even through these challenging days. Every need has been met, every bill has been paid,
God is good and faithful.
We also noted that we have some ground to make up in our financial giving, especially our offerings. Please consider increasing your offering at this time, (or start giving if this is a new idea to you). A huge thank you to everyone who has been so faithful with their tithes and with their offerings.
We also made 3 big requests and announcements:
Commitment to support 3 Ukranian Families
Along with our partner churches at GKPN, we have committed to bring 3 Ukrainian families for a year, helping a mum and kids flee the war zone.
Our pledge is to look after them for a year, providing all that we are able in meeting their needs, which not only includes food and housing, but counselling and love for the trauma that they have endured.
We need 3 homes. One has already been kindly offered, do you have either a free flat or house that they could use, or room available in your own home.
Please let me know at email@example.com if you can help.
