Join us for our sermon series:

GOD’S SILENT SOVEREIGNTY

It’s easy to feel alone and abandoned when no one else shares your faith or view of the world. It’s easy to feel adrift when you are the minority and nothing around you is yours or like you. It’s easy to feel threatened when the culture sees you as such an outsider and a threat. Esther is a young woman who is trying to navigate life in such a culture where it seems that God is either asleep, hiding, or absent. But while God is not mentioned once in the whole book, the narrative of Esther reveals a God who is powerfully and lovingly present when he appears most absent, who has neither forgotten nor abandoned his people, despite their idolatry and exile. God is always at work for the good of his people and his glory.

Be with us to experience God’s silent sovereignty as he works to preserve, protect and provide for all who trust in him. Experience again a God who is faithfully at work through his flawed and broken people to accomplish his awesome and beautiful plans.

Music for the journey

We are all travellers on the journey of life ...

The paths we travel don't always look the same. Some are smooth and straight, others are winding and bumpy. But no matter what type of road we find ourselves on, Jesus meets us along the way. He invites us to walk with him from wherever we are at, to places we never imagined possible.

"Fellow travellers, let these songs inspire you on your journey as you meet the one who alone can illuminate your path with certainty and hope for eternity."

Travellers are a five member band from Sydney, Australia with a passion for helping people to have honest conversations with God and travel deeper in their personal relationship with Jesus.

You can buy HOPE ALIVE on CD for $14.99 (AUD) from Australian Christian Resources HERE.

Cambodia Urgent Need Appeal

An urgent need is to raise $800 to buy landfill to raise up the road to enable the high school students to get to school. The rains have cut off the entrance to the school, so the students can’t get to classes. You can donate HERE – Choose Cambodia Special Appeal from the list.

Pastor Mark will take the funds across at the end of August when he goes over to work with the LifeWay Cambodia team to set up systems, encourage the people, preach, teach, and further develop the Vision2030 plan for ministry there.

Grow course - How can they hear?

Have you felt the nudge of the Spirit to share God’s word with a group of people? Would you like to know how to read the text, understand the text and build a bridge for people to also understand God’s Word?

Would you like to explore whether God is calling you and preparing you to publicly share his Word?

Then register for “How can they hear…”

Over a series of nine weeks, we’ll explore how to go from reading the Word, to understanding the text, and then presenting it in a way that the Holy Spirit uses to encourage, strengthen and grow his people. You will even get an opportunity to write and present a sermon in front of a small group of people who will be cheering you on!

Join us in person at Epping or online, Thursdays at 7.30pm. Please RSVP (register) if you plan to attend.

Today's verse & thought to ponder ...

13

AUG

HEBREWS 13:20-21

Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
