From the Pastor’s Desk
This year 2017, we have heard loud cries for tolerance – but consider the bigotry towards Jesus Christ and Christianity. Even our treasurer on December 22 said, Australia is making no room whatsoever for Christianity – “’I’m not going to put up with it any more’: Morrison vows to defend Christianity in 2018.” It seems as though the United Nations too has no room for Israel or Jerusalem being its capital with its recent vote against the USA. There is no room for the Bible in our culture, no room for prayers in schools – but eastern meditation is fine! Since that first Christmas not much has changed for the babe born in Bethlehem for whom there was no room in the inn. I pray that this Christmas you and your family not only will have room for Jesus but that He will be the Guest of your house! There was no room for them in the inn – Luke 2:7
For unto us a child is born, to us a Son is given and the government will be on His shoulders and He will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace – Isaiah 9:6 Who is Jesus to you? Amidst a world that does not want to recognize the Christ of Christmas we need to worship and celebrate the “Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” John 1:29. He is the reason for the season the Creator who became your Saviour. I would like to take this time to wish you a blessed and safe joyous Christmas and holiday season – Helen.
CCSH has a tithe and offering container at the left side of the sanctuary as you enter for your grace giving for the work of the Lord here. – CCSH Account number: 2490144 & BSB: 306089 for those who wish to give electronically.
We ask that once the service has commenced that should you need to leave the sanctuary that you are mindful to not be a distraction to those worshipping and listening to God’s Word. If you are returning the ushers will direct you to seating at the back of the sanctuary – thank you for your consideration.
Still a chance for servants to help this Christmas Eve with ministry in the crèche room – see Nathan Anderson for further information.
From all here at Calvary Chapel Secret Harbour we wish you all a Merry and Blessed Christmas.
There are still some Christmas Eve invitation cards left – please be sure to grab some as you leave this morning and invite family, a friend, or a stranger to join us tonight!
