Just Another Melodic Monday - There Is A Day

The song "There is a day" encourages us to live now in the light of the future that is secured by Jesus Christ for all of his people. 

"For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen." (2 Corinthians 4v17-18)

Just Another Melodic Monday - Where, O Grave, Is Your Victory?

We've recently been learning this song as a church community.  It reminds us of the incredible future promised through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  I've put the lyrics below the video.

Through all life’s sorrows and despairs
I will not be moved
When facing death I need not fear
I have this hope secured

Because Christ died at Calvary
Sin has on me no claim
Because he overcame the grave
With him I will be raised

Where, O grave, is your victory? 
Where, O death, is your sting? 
Eternity is won for me 
By heaven’s eternal King

On that glorious final day
I will not sleep or fade
But gazing on his nail-pierced hands
I’ll instantly be changed

Where, O grave, is your victory?...

Robed with immortality
Before his throne we’ll sing
At last reflecting perfectly
The glory of our King

Where, O grave, is your victory?...

Some Words for Wednesday - Seek first the kingdom of God

Our series in the sermon on the Mount continues, as Jesus encourages his followers to not be anxious, but instead to trust in God's care for his people.

Friday to the Father (16/06/17)

Jesus said: "This then is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven...' " (Matthew 6v9)

Thank you for your prayers for us.  We continue to be encouraged.  The Lord has answered prayer regarding employment for myself.  Please continue to pray for others in the church as they seek stability in their work roles.  Pray that daily needs would be met, and wise choices would be made.

We're encouraged as we see people meeting together on Sunday mornings.  Pray for those who attend regularly but have not yet trusted in Jesus Christ.  We long to see people put their faith in Christ - ask God to pour out His mercy and bring the lost into the kingdom.

We're encouraged by those who come to the Mothers and Toddlers group on Wednesdays, and the fortnightly after-school club we help with on Thursdays (we again had about 30 children and family members attend our most recent half-term meal).  Pray for the children who attend, and for their families, as we share the message and the love of Christ.  Pray also that the Lord would open doors as we explore options for the next academic year.

We'll be meeting as a church in July to discuss future plans and consider how the Lord is developing the church's ministry.  Pray that God would guide us and lead us in His will.

Thank you for your continued prayers.  Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
