Sunday 11th February
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Philippians 2:19-30 & Mark 9:2-9 and think about the following:
1. (v25) Consider what the four roles of Epaphroditus (brother, co-worker, soldier & messenger) look like?
2. (v29) What does it mean to welcome with joy and to honour someone?
3. What does this passage teach us about Christian fellowship?
We are relaunching the Emergency Prayer Chain. If you have an URGENT prayer request for an emergency situation for yourself, family or Church Family please contact Anne Lancaster on 024 7647 1942 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. At the moment we have 30 people willing to pray. If you would like to be part of the chain please contact Anne.
We celebrate with and pray for Judith Ellis on her birthday this week.
‘Healed by the Father’s Love’ is an afternoon seminar session running TODAY at 4.00pm, including tea and a great opportunity to invest time into discovering the 'Father Heart' of God and exploring how He sees us.
This event can really help us grasp what it means to be a child of God. This seminar can teach us new depths to God's love for us, whatever our background and understanding of parenthood. It is highly recommended for everybody! Please let Steve know this morning if you plan to attend.
Pancake Party will be held on Tuesday. Everybody is welcome, particularly children! If you are able to arrive from 4.30pm to help set up, or stay a little later to help clear up, that would be great!
Father God, we thank you for our Alpha Course; that we are able to have meaningful discussions with those in attendance and sow the seeds of truth with them. Please bless each person on the course and give them revelations of you. We ask the same of the Healed by the Father’s Love seminar.
We ask for a blessing upon all those who walk through our doors this week; for the regular church events, the Pancake Party and particularly for those who attend the funeral here on Friday. We ask for a sense of peace and the presence of the Holy Spirit in this place. Amen
Choose a regular church event to pray for every day this week. Pray for the leaders, the visitors, the event itself, for growth and for meaningful encounters with God. Your prayers make a difference, even if you don’t always know how!
