Our church vision focus for 2024 is ‘Growing in and by the word of God’. A further help that some may not be aware of is a series of weekly questions from the Sunday morning sermon. Some of the home groups use these in their gatherings. If you would find this a helpful resource for your personal study please contact Angus at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will add your name to the list of recipients.
We have an opportunity this summer of partnering with Mihai in Romania and our friends at ISF (International Sports Federation) to help run a children’s multi-sport camp, with opportunities for bible teaching. We anticipate there being between 100-125 children from Calarasi. The dates are 22nd-30th June. No specific sporting skills are required just enthusiasm and a desire to introduce children to Jesus. If you are interested in helping, please contact Peter & Philippa Cook in person or via email.
PRAYER ITEMS FOR FEBRUARY:
Sunday: Give thanks to God for our 2024 church vision focus and pray that we may each continue to hunger for God’s Word, read it, meditate on it, apply it and grow in and by it.
