- Who we are
- What we do
Well, friends, it’s hard to believe it, but it’s now a full year since my family joined the church family at Oak Flats Anglican.
On behalf of Mandy, Liana, Jemimah, Oscar and Hugo, I can certainly say that we give great thanks to God for all that he has done over these wonderful twelve months together.
During this year we have all enjoyed the fruit of knowing Jesus better as his Spirit has taught us through his word, and we bring glory to God the Father for the way we have been grown by him in so many ways.
It is our prayer that the years ahead see more people come to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ so that they might repent and believe in him, and be saved from God’s wrath and be joyfully established in his heavenly church.
And we pray that as he grows us, that God will keep us loving one another as we wait in hope for the returning of Jesus, our blessed saviour.
Grace and peace,
One of the most ironic aspects of the Christian life is that God shows his power through weakness.
This is true for him, and it’s also true for everyone who follows him.
In this 18-week series from October 2013 to April 2014 from the New Testament letter of 2 Corinthians, we’ll see what the Bible teaches us about living upside-down… the life that appears weak but is truly strong.
Here is the plan for the 18-week series. We’d love you to join us to experience the real Jesus as we understand what it means to follow the one who said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
