THIS WEEK @ NIGHTCHURCH: We will start our new series “Church. What’s The Point?” with Paul Pallot preaching on the mission of Jesus. Paul Pallot is leading the service, TBC is organising the music team, Tim Mitchell and James Crawford are on audio/data, James Docking will lead in prayer, Rachel Bakker will be providing supper, and Marny Croot is convening. Thanks everyone.
CHURCH. WHAT’S THE POINT?: The church is irrelevant. It’s clearly corrupt. The church offers nothing of value to the world. These are fairly common sentiments. But have you ever heard anything positive about the church in the media? Can it be that bad? What do you actually know about the church? Actually, what’s the point of the church – or, what is it? Over the next several weeks at NightChurch we will look at what Jesus intended for the church and why he called it into being:
- The Mission of Jesus
- The Message of Jesus
- The Method of Jesus’ Transformation of Humanity
- The Model of Jesus’ New Community
But perhaps you have some questions or issues you want to raise. We would love to hear from you. Just email or message – or even talk to one of our pastors, either Nicholas or Paul.
THE MIRACLES OF JESUS: Last Sunday we spent some time considering the miracles and healing of Jesus. Here are a few links if you missed it or want to continue to explore and learn: http://kewbaptist.org.au/the-miracles-of-jesus/
PRAYER BREAKFASTS: A reminder that we are running a weekly Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday mornings, 7-8am in The Lounge (upstairs in the hall). Put it in your schedule and start the day with worship, prayer, food and friends at KBC.
