Hi Table View Methodist Family,I'm writing from home today, working on my sermon while my daughter Emily recovers from a fever she had yesterday. Isn't it amazing how quickly some children get sick - and then all better again in a few hours :) I'm sure she send you all her love.
Thank you for participating in the nomination and election of our society stewards last week. We will induct our stewards this coming Sunday at their respective services:
Is there some small / big way in which you can serve? Help out with counting after the service, do some handy work for the church, help to cater for special events? Read the scriptures? Lead our intercessory prayers? Consider these opportunities to help us.
This Sunday we will pray with our new society stewards as they take up their new duties. We will also share communion. The scriptures for this coming Sunday are Genesis 17:1-16, Psalm 22:23-31, Romans 4:13-25 and Mark 8:31-38. I spoke a little bit about Abraham last week, this week Genesis tells us about Abraham's faith (at 99 years old) that God would give him a child. Romans reminds us of the importance of 'trusting in God' for our salvation. Jesus calls us to take up our cross and follow him.
Our auditor, Wayne Van Schoor is busy auditing our Income / Ependiture statements for 2014. As I look at our income and expenditure for 2015 I note that we are falling behind a bit; our deficit at this point is about R26,000 over the first two months.
Please consider how you can support our church financially. We need about R100,000 per month to get by (more would be better as it always is).
We have a number of uncollected baptism certificates in the church office. Di will place them in the church foyer this Sunday: Maya Chinasamy, Riley Coleman, Daniel Ross Pape, Taylor, Cooper and Maiya Zeiler.
I look forward to worshiping and sharing communion with you on Sunday at 8, 930 and 11am.
