Help us to spread your fragrance everywhere we go. Flood our souls with your Spirit and life. Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly that our lives may only be a radiance of yours. Shine through us and be so in us that every soul we come in contact with may feel your presence in our soul. Let them look up and see no longer us but only Jesus. Stay with us and then we shall begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be light to others.
From Mother Teresa (1910 – 1998 )
Please pray together with us this week for:
1. Pray for this week’s Worship Service. Pastor Wade will be speaking on Generous Love, Stewarding our Time and Talents. He will unpack Matthew 25:14-30. Pray that Christ would meet us in our worship and that the Holy Spirit would speak, guide and encourage us all as we come together online.
2. Pray for our Life Group Leaders as they shepherd their groups. Pray that God will strengthen them and fill them as they minister on the front lines.
3. Pray for those in our congregation and city that are feeling lonely and isolated. Pray that we would have eyes to see them with compassion and that we would be able to reach them with the hope of Christ.
Shine Kids Update
Shine Kids has not stopped meeting together despite Covid. The only difference is we’re meeting on Zoom! Join us on Sundays at 11am for our Shine Zoom as we connect with one another and worship God through stories and activities. We started January with a New Year’s Zoom Party and we will continue to have fun throughout the month as we learn about Responsibility. Come join us!
Youth Ministry Update
Throughout the festive season, we will have:
Daily 1:1 catch ups
Virtual weekly devotionals
Digital discipleship (Confirmation Classes and Spectrum Youth)
When safe to do so, small group dinners (no more than 4) hosted at Grace’s place (Soup-er Saturdays), will recommence
Miss seeing your faces and hearing your voices, so let’s join together.
Bring your dinner, lunch or breakfast and let’s catch up and connect from our comfy couches and in our cosy clothes.
