The international Day/Family Day, the Alpha Course and the Renew Africa group are all brewing in the parish now as we come towards the end of the year. The PPC should also focus on planning some events for the nativity, in the past we used to have events like gift of giving, shelter seeking, etc. Often the problem has been, who will move these ideas forward.
We will like to use this opportunity to encourage all parishioners to get involved with or/and support these events. We do not want a case of the same old faces getting involved in the organizing
and also supporting of these events. If you have close friends and relatives, please enjoin them to put in some of their time towards God’s work, so that their private work will prosper. This is God’s work, and it has to be done by God’s people.
These events are organized for the spiritual growth of our parish/parishioners as well as the unity and overall growth of community, fellowship and discipleship. We encourage all parishioners to, in the service of God’s family on earth, make a resolution to either get involved in organizing something or at least support these events when somebody puts them together.
In Haggai 1:8, it illustrates the result of giving yourself to God’s work: God is honored and pleased. A desolate church saddens God. A strong church filled with strong disciples and followers who are reaching out to outsiders for Christ brings glory and pleasure to God.
Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him. 1 Cor 2:9.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. Phil 4:6
This is our Faith, lets uphold it regardless of statute, culture, race or class-
