NEWSLETTER - BETTER TOGETHER, MARCH 31, 2020


So, what are we going to do on a Sunday now that we can’t meet together?

One thing we can do is watch an online church service.

Did you watch the Christian Family Centre, Seaton SA. last Sunday? A large CRC church where Bill Vasilakis, is the Senior Minister. The web site is: www.familycentre.org.au

Also check out MFC sermons in the MESSAGES section of this site for messages you may have missed or want to listen to again.

Another special sermon to bless you.

Bill Johnson, Senior Pastor at Bethel Church in USA delivered a sermon on Psalm 91 especially for these times. It’ll bless your socks off. https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/bethel-church-sermon-of-the-week/id76583739?i=1000468920638

Prayer Partners/Mates.

Please don’t forget your Prayer Partner/mates. In these times this is an even more important ministry for us all. We need to post our cards or gifts so please ensure to post them in Morwell. Otherwise the “secrecy” aspect could be blown.

Birthdays

Frederick and Ethan are celebrating their birthdays today.

“The Purpose Driven Life”

When we were watching the service online from Seaton last Sunday, Bill Vasilakis mentioned that the whole church was studying Rick Warren’s book “The Purpose Driven Life”. Bill’s sermon centred on chapter four, “You were shaped for serving God.”

Rick uses the acrostic SHAPE to describe how God shapes us for our ministry.

S-Unwrapping our Spiritual Gifts.

H-Listening to our heart.

A-Applying our Abilities.

P-Using our Personality.

E-Employing our Experiences

If our SHAPE is right, we will blossom in our ministry and God can abundantly bless us. We first studied this book at the Baptists a number of years ago and it was life changing to many of us. I highly recommend “The Purpose Driven Life” as a must-read book. It was on the top of the best seller list for many months a few years ago. And thousands of lives have been dramatically changed by studying it. It is available from Koorong Books.

Something to meditate on.

Jesus’ parable of the talents illustrates that God expects us to make the most of what he gives us. We are to cultivate our gifts and abilities, keep our hearts aflame, grow our character and personality, and broaden our experiences so we will be increasingly more effective in our service. Paul told the Philippians to “keep on growing in your knowledge and understanding”. Phil 1:9(LNT), and reminded Timothy, “Kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you”. 1 Tim. 4:14-15(LB)

Please, keep in contact with one another.

If you need help in accessing groceries, or other essentials, or have a specific prayer or practical need, please let us know by emailing Phil on pas14519@bigpond.net.au or call on 0412 881 897.
