Join us for online Mother’s Day worship

We thank God that we celebrated church again. Praise the Lord. As you prepare for Church may I encourage you to reflect on your relationship with Jesus.

We celebrated Mothers’ Day. If you have ever had a mother, then we’re saying thank you to God. Without her, you wouldn’t be here! No matter what your relationship with her was like, God used your mother to bring you to the place where you are now.

We’re also continuing our study in Ephesians. The Apostle Paul will teach us how to become mature Christians—a message for everyone.

I’m glad to announce that we’re had our YouTube service again (9th May). Please come and join us as we fellowship “together.”

You can also find our YouTube Channel by clicking here.

This is a wonderful time to fellowship together.

Please make sure you set these dates aside. You’ll hear about them in the service:

On Sundays May 16th, 23rd, and 30th we’ll be hosting our Summer Visits at the Church. We’ll arrange for groups of 10 to visit the church on either one of these days. You can come between 1pm to 3pm or from 3pm to 5pm to visit. You choose which day and time you’d like to visit. Again you’ll have to let me know if you would like to join us. Everyone is welcome. Just let me know.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call me.

See you at church.

The peace of our Lord,

Bishop Peter (and Jenny) Klenner
