We’ve started our new series ‘Hope beyond chaos’ and it’s a fresh reminder that when things go sour, God stays sweet. If you’ve never joined us before, then come along this Saturday night at 5pm or Sunday at 9am and hear from the Old Testament book of Judges how God continues to be faithful and kind to his people, even when we fail to follow him as we ought.
I’ll be speaking on the topic ‘The Cycle of Salvation’ and it’s all about God’s faithfulness. You can read ahead from Judges chapter 2 verses 5 to chapter 3 verse 11.
If you’ve been following the news from our church then you’ll know that we’re hosting three Canadian Bible college students for the month of May, and you can meet them on Saturday night. They’ll be leading our youth group this week after church on Saturday, so it’s a perfect time for new teenagers to come along.
After a week with no questions, we’ve got ten! Here are the questions you’ve asked from response slips and emails, which I’ll answer during our church services this weekend:
1 Why did you say that we are by-products (that is unintentional) of God’s salvation, considering creation and the cross?
2 How is it possible that the tribe of Benjamin failed to drive out the Jebusites when they had already been completely destroyed?
3 When we ask God for guidance how does he answer and speak to us?
4 How are we sure of God’s guidance?
5 If we want to gain money in order to give it away then is it wrong to want a business to grow?
6 Is there any sin that God won’t forgive?
7 Does God ever stop forgiving us?
8 How can I feel God’s peace?
9 How can I be assured that I am going to Heaven?
10 If you claim to be a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you of it?
So, come and join us this weekend on Saturday at 5pm for an all-age service with creche, infants and primary programs, followed by dinner then youth group. Then on Sunday at 9am we have a classic Anglican service followed by a delicious morning tea with espresso coffee.
