New Sermon Series
Our new Assistant Minister, Simon Chaplin, starts a four week series titled “Christ in the Psalms” next week, with the first talk titled ‘The foolish one’ from Psalm 14.
Refuge, our group for high schoolers, will be meeting for four weeks for Summer Refuge on Sundays at 4pm here at the church. This starts next week on Sunday 15th January and will run until Sunday 5th February.
Please note that any donations to CMS, via the plate or Direct Credit, that do not specify support for particular missionaries will be directed towards support of the Lovells.
Small monetary donations
Small amounts given via the plate for some missions have been returned as it can cost more to manage them than the value of the gift. Please consider building up a reasonable amount (say $25.00) before making your gifts or may wish to risk sending small amounts of cash via the mail. Where possible we will return small amounts to the donors otherwise the funds will be directed to CMS and the Lovells.
Each week we need to receive $5,500 in order to meet our commitments. In the last calendar month, our average weekly giving was $3,604, leaving a gap of $1,896.
Up to the end of the last calendar month we needed to have received $286,000. Compared to that total we received $240,623, leaving a gap of $45,377.
Electronic giving is a great way to give! It helps us prayerfully plan our giving, and then the bank will help us keep that commitment, even when we may be unable to attend.
