Hi Table View Methodist,I'm on my way to Synod in Stellenbosch tomorrow. Synod comes from syn which means 'together' and odos which means 'way'. At synod representatives from Methodist Churches throughout the Western Cape gather to work out our 'way' 'together' or 'synod.' Finding the way together is not always easy - but (by the grace of God) we've managed to keep going here in the Cape since 1829.
Moms are invited to come and join this Bible Study starting on Thursday the 4th of June meeting at the church from 7:30-8:30. Heather (my wife) will facilitate, she writes:
For any moms who feel like they need an hours peace during the week or seldom get a chance to hear anything in church or any mom needing support, this is for you!
We will be starting an eleven week Bible study called "Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood" by Melissa B. Kruger. The book is on special at the moment at Cum Books in Canal Walk for R150 but you don't have to purchase the book to join (although it has daily devotions for you during the week). If you are unable to leave kids at home they are welcome to play with the toys while we have fellowship.
If you are keen, please contact the church office for more information.
Last Sunday's Sermon
If you can access dropbox please click here to download a copy of my notes from last Sunday's sermon. To me sermons are meant to be momentary - a proposal rather than a statement; I don't really like putting them in writing. I hope the sermon helps.
Please have a look at our income / expense statements for the year so far. We are not taking in enough money to make ends meet; I know you are giving generously and I want you to know that we are spending conservatively. You can view the income statement generated by FNB instant accounting here. Please chat to Vivienne, Charmaine or Basi if you want more information about our finances.
God bless,Rev Angus Kelly
