Following is the Minister’s Message from the July 2020 issue:

FROM the MINISTER’S DESK

Greetings in the name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

The Lord be with you. I pray you are all well.

We give thanks to God in all circumstances of life and, although we are presently journeying through some difficult times, we give thanks and praise to the Lord who is with us and for us in Christ Jesus.

In light of the current situation as we continue to see the easing of the COVID-19 restrictions, the COVID-19 strategic plan STAGE 3 is expected to commence on 10 July with expectations that places of worship and religious ceremonies could reopen with a maximum of 100 people permitted to physically attend.

With this news we look forward to coming together in this new month and this new season to worship together again and continue with God’s call on our lives in this new norm.

God calls us to Life through Faith in the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. This is the good news

God has called us to share in discipleship.

Go therefore and act for the harvest is plenty,

Make disciples of all nations for the Lord calls us to do so by name,
Baptizing in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit for the Lord has given us the Authority to do so;
Teaching to obey everything that I have commanded you for the Kingdom of Heaven is near;
• And remembering, God is with us always, to the end of the age, for it is Not Us but the Spirit of the Father working through us;
• Through the Revelation of His Word;
• Through Preparation – obeying God’s word;
• Through Separation – separating ourselves from what draws our attention away from God;
• Through Dedication – giving our best for God;
• Through Proclamation – Proclaiming what God has done and Who God is.

Praise be to God!

Much Love and Blessings, Church Family.
