From the Pastor’s Desk
What has happened to our nation Australia? Why is there such a united attack on Christianity? Why have even our conservative politicians now succumbed to supporting acts and laws that are contrary to the Word of God? It is time for the church to fully realize the season, the depth into which we now are in what the Bible calls as the Last Days. For as we go to God’s Word for the answers to each of the previous questions the Bible describes in clarity what is happening around us now. The time is so very short, just where is your heart today? Are you ready for the return of Jesus Christ? For He is coming very soon!
The Christmas period is a time of reflection and planning. There is someone who knows your innermost hurts and desires. He never laughs or mocks or walks away. Instead He understands and stays near. He alone is the One we can go to He knows our weaknesses and forgives all our sins. There are no silent cries when we hold Him near. The Lord is near to all who call upon Him – Ps 145:18
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.
