- Who we are
- What we do
This Sunday we continue our series on ‘Romans: The Heart of Truth’, with Simon speaking on the topic ‘The spirit of glory’ from Romans chapter 8 verses 26 to 30.
At our 10am Sunday morning service we will be celebrating the baptism of Ashkan and Abigail Myers, and we would love you to join us for this special event.
We will have our weekly question and answer time as usual, and Jodie will be answering these questions:
Our youth group, Refuge, meets at 4pm in the Neighbourhood Centre, and then head over to join us for church. Kids’ Club and Andy’s Club meets at our 5pm evening service for their program, followed by a great dinner together for the whole family.
As always, come along and visit us at 10am or 5pm at 35 Fisher Street Oak Flats, or if you can’t make it in person, jump online at www.oakflats.tv to watch a livestream of our services.
See you at 10am or 5pm this Sunday, God willing!
Throughout life I’ve realised that it’s often when I’m doing the hardest things that it’s the time that I’m growing the most.
It might be carrying a 23kg pack on a five-day, 50km walk around the exposed wilderness of Wilsons Promentory.
Or, it might be learning to stand up on my mid-life-crisis longboard, without causing further damage to my middle-aged joints and muscles.
But one time in my life that was very hard but very rewarding was my four-year stint at Moore Theological College.
This is the place I was pushed harder than I could imagine to know as much about God, his world, and myself through the studying of the Bible and the writings of the great ones who have so-helpfully grappled with the queen of the sciences.
Yet, it wasn’t just the study that was hard. The four years of learning and living in community forged friendships through the trials we faced, together.
I praise God that the time in College was one where we were all supported by godly and caring faculty and staff, who always sought to help us grow in every way, in preparation for our future opportunities in word ministry.
It was tough, but it was good tough.
Moore College is one of the finest places on the planet to study theology in a community that cherishes God’s word as his true and reliable revelation, and we need to keep praying and supporting this important ministry.
Our church benefits from this every day as our trained ministers stand on the foundations learnt from the study at Moore, and as we seek to then teach others what we, ourselves, have learnt.
As we celebrate Moore College Sunday, let’s keep praying that Moore College keeps equipping men and women for mission and ministry.
