SCRIPTURE OF THE MONTH
Psalm 3:2-6: So many are saying, “God will never rescue him!”. But you, O Lord, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high. I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy mountain. I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me. I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side.

Like David we often go through times when the voices around us are very loud. They have opinions about our situations, about our faith about our God. David understood that what people said about him, did not matter. He knew His Lord and He was confident of the Lord's love for him.

You may be able to relate to David. You have heard the things people say about you. You have heard them mocking your faith, and had to withstand the scrutiny, “let’s see if God will hear his prayers” they say.

If this is you, then this Psalm is for you…take heart the Lord is your shield, He is the lifter of your head. He is your father, and you are His. Take heart.

FEATURE MINISTRY

WHAT IS UPLIFT

Uplift is a community outreach programme run by Living Waters Victoria. Our main focus is the community that God has placed us in. Being located in the very heart of Dandenong and it goes without saying how vital it is to be the Light and the Salt that the Lord called us to be where he has positioned us.

We have sourced places where we pick up fresh produce such as vegetables and fruit on a weekly or fortnightly basis, along with dry goods provided by our church family feed, nourish and support the needy in our area.

We have also worked with one orphanage and one street ministry in Sri Lanka, where we have been able to provide stationary and clothing to the precious little ones in their care and facilities. It has been an immense joy to see the difference we are making in the lives that have been disadvantaged due to poverty and dire circumstances.

During the month of December it was the highlight of our church to run Operation Christmas Child in conjunction with the Samaritan’s purse in Cambodia. This too gave Uplift the extraordinary opportunity to bless and bring the true Joy of Christmas into the lives of many poverty stricken young ones.

It is our focus this year to search out the needy in our surroundings and continue to provide support in ways we can through uplifting them and hence being the beacon of Jesus Christ our Lord.

PENTECOST NIGHT

Pentecost Night: 19th May 9pm-12am

John 14:26: "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."

The Holy Spirit empowers us, He teaches us and keeps God's Word in our hearts. We cannot walk the Christian walk without His Spirit empowering us to live as we are called to live.

Come, be empowered to be what you have been called to be!

What is the significance of baptism?

Baptism is action represents the spiritual. It is a symbol of Christ’s burial and resurrection. Our entrance into the water during baptism identifies us with Christ’s death on the cross, His burial in the tomb, and His resurrection from the dead.
