Dear Friends

I love this passage from the book of Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12 "Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken."

This is a great passage if you are a preacher at a wedding. The passage illustrates just why God has made man and woman to stand next to each other. He put them next to each other so that they could face every season and circumstance of life. The passage however is not just about a man and a woman. Simply put is says, do not isolate yourself.

Don't be alone, make sure that you have others around you who will be there for you and you for them in the challenging and the celebratory times of life.

We need others and others need us. This is what church is about, why not consider joining a small group or even better, why not consider leading or hosting a small group in your house.

As the American marines say: "No-one left behind”


Staff Team Building

Every 6 months or so the staff get together and do a "Team Building Exercise".

So, this past Wednesday we met at Menlyn for a spot of Tenpin Bowling, followed by our monthly staff meeting.

Strikes, spares and dot balls galore, but ultimately loads of fun, laughter and team spirit.

Accommodation Needed!

New missionaries arrived yesterday to serve alongside Lorraine Green for Team. Unfortunately, the accommodation that has been arranged for them is only available from the end of March, so the family is in dire need of short-term rental accommodation.

A 2-bedroom flatlet would be ideal, particularly in the Garsfontein / Moreleta / Constantia Park area. Please contact Lorraine Green by clicking here if you know of a guesthouse or other option within this area. You can also call the church office, or fill in the Connect Card on Sunday.

Thank you!

Bring All Your Friends!

We're still looking for volunteers. Contact us at the church office if you're able to help!

...and for the men
