We've got a busy week ahead with our Potjie Kos Competition on Saturday; and Ascension Day - our Ascension Day Service is on Thursday at 9am.
Ascension Day (Thursday 25, 9am)
Rev Trevor Ruthenberg (one of our retired ministers) will preach at the Ascension Day service. We will be joined by the folks from the Table View United Church; last year they invited us to join them there. There will be a light tea after the service.
Ascension Day is celebrated 40 days after Easter Sunday - in accordance with the tradition of Acts 1:3 which describes Jesus ascending to heaven and instructing the disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. We celebrate Pentecost on Sunday 3 June.
Potjie Kos (Saturday 27th 1230pm) (R30 per serving)
We will be having our Potjie Kos competition this Saturday; cooking starts at 830 and serving at 1230pm. You're free to prepare your potjie at home if you want to and bring it along at 1230pm (Although you might not be eligible for the competition if you do).
Please let Jacques Kellerman know if you would like to contribute to the Potjie: Contact the church office for Jacques' details.
This Sunday we will continue our series on The Will of God, with a concluding sermon: How do I know the will of God for my life? I look forward to worshipping with you at 8, 930 and 11 this Sunday.
Holy Spirit Bible Study (Thursday 8 June, 730pm)
Please join us during the month of June for a Thursday Night Soup and Bible Study on the person and work of the Holy Spirit. We'll serve soup and rolls at 7pm, listen to a presentation from 730-8pm and then have a time of discussion ending at 845pm.
730pm 8 June - Who is the Holy Spirit?
730pm 15 June - What does the Holy Spirit do?
730pm 22 June - How can I receive the Holy Spirit?
Alpha groups: Try to get yourselves together for a meal some time in the weeks leading up to the Holy Spirit Bible Study.
