Last Sunday our church hosted the ‘Combined Churches Reformation Service.’ Thank you to all the ladies from Grace Church and the Hospitality Team for helping to make it such a huge success. Thanks to everyone who served and helped in small or big ways with the sound, music team, greeters, pack up, trailer and more. We are blessed with a church filled with people committed to serve HIS church and to bring God glory in all we do.

We are excited about our annual family Carols Service which have proven to be a huge success every year with more and more people coming along to it. This year’s theme is ‘The Wonder of Christmas’ and we have some special moments planned which will involve the children from our church. We already have a bunch of kids singing in the kids choir. We still need some readers as well as a few kids who can ‘act’ as THE WISE MEN seeking the star, and lastly – we need a young girl who will act out (with a prop) being THE STAR that the wise men follow. Get in touch with me if you children would like to get involved in the above. This event takes place Sat 15 Dec at 6.30pm.

Today is the 1st of November. In exactly one month from today we will be hosting the special outreach event ‘Afrikaans Christmas Carols.’ Many folks from our church have an Afrikaans background and this gives us the opportunity to invite other South African migrant friends along.

Besides being an outreach opportunity, this event is also a fundraiser in support of ‘Helping Hands ZA – Stop Hunger Project.’ All tickets sales will go towards their work of feeding pre school children who come from disadvantaged areas and sometimes go to school without having anything to eat. The refreshments sales at the event (including Boerewors rolls which you can purchase beforehand) will go towards Grace Church fund raising. Please help us spread the word about this special event. You can purchase tickets at church or online at these links;
Perth, 1 Des – (7pm)
Perth, 2 Dec – (7pm)

We’ll also be doing a similar event on invitation in Geraldton. 25 Nov – (6pm)
Over the next 4 weeks I will be preaching from the Psalms. In it we find inspiration and strength for our daily living. I’m sure we could all use a dose of God infused inspiration right now.

This week I’ll be preaching from Psalm 144 which declares that God is our fortress and deliverer. It is also He who teaches us how to fight the good fight. I pray that the Word on Sunday will bless you.

He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer. Psalm 144.2

See you all on Sunday
Pastor Joe
