AUGUST & SEPTEMBER BOOK OF THE MONTH

‘The World Next Door: A short guide to the Christian Faith’ By Rory Shiner & Peter Orr. This book is our best shot at commending the Christian message to our friends and neighbours. It’s driven by the universal human instinct to increase the joy of finding a good thing by sharing it with others. We both think we’ve found a good thing‚ the best thing‚ in finding God through Jesus. We want to share it. The World Next Door invites you into a world where Jesus Christ reigns supreme and where lives are changed forever. We have physical copies available for purchase over in the church hall. However, if you wish to order your own copy online or read via Kindle, you can do that here.

Each week we need to receive $4800.00 in order to meet our commitments. Last month, our average weekly giving was $5164.00, leaving a gap of $-364.00. Up to the end of the last calendar month we needed to have received $228,000. Compared to that total we received $215,467, leaving a gap of $12,533.
