Big Church Serve 2015 Registration
On Sunday the 25th and Tuesday the 27th of January, we had two fantastic registration nights with well over 100 people coming to register themselves and family members. On the Sunday, Grace opened with worship and Simon followed by sharing some fantastic words from Matthew 5:
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven."
We then watched a video of people being interviewed on the streets helping us to focus outward in our thoughts and prayers toward those we'll meet during the BCS!!!
Simon challenged us with a quote from A.W.Tozer, calling us to be fearless in reaching out to a scared world - who are like sheep without a shepherd.
After Dessie explained what a day would look like, and Zara reflected on how last years' evaluation forms shaped this years' programme, Nathan and Sam introduced the forms and everybody signed up! Karen finished the night with prayer and we brought our requests to God.
Whether you were there or not, please keep praying towards Holy Week and ask the Lord to bless the preparations and the work!
Bless you all,
