Out Of Egypt (Incomplete)

Date 25th July 2017  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Exodus 12:31-42

In the evening services, we will be picking up where we left off in the book of Exodus. The Lord has heard the cry of the enslaved people of Israel and has acted on their behalf. Egypt has suffered as a result of the stubbornness of Pharaoh and now the proverbial ‘straw that broke the

No Child Left Behind

Date 25th July 2017  by John Van Dijk - Elder  Bible passage Mark 10:13-16

Today we pick up the series on Mark again. In today’s passage, Jesus has just finished teaching about the very serious matter of marriage and divorce. As soon as that discussion is finished, Jesus turns His attention to some little children that are being brought to Him by their parents. It was a Jewish tradition

God’s Glory – Our Joy – NO SERMON

Date 17th July 2017  by KJ Tromp - Pastor for Nerang Community Church  Bible passage Romans 5:1-11

Often we hear people finish prayers with the words “for the glory of God” or “so that You may get the glory, God”. And everyone says a “hearty amen” to that. Why do we do that? Why has it evoked positive emotions in us or in Christians from the past ages, to be motivated by

The Man of Prayer is the Man of Power – NO SERMON

Date 17th July 2017  by Mark Bensley - Executive Officer for the Uniting Church Schools and Residential Colleges Commission  Bible passage James 5:13-18

The highest honour for the saved man or woman is to become used of Christ in the saving and blessing of others – and the men and women God most uses are those who pray. Divine power is called into operation by the prayers of Christ’s people. We may be a minority, but prayer makes

Be Useful to the Lord

Date 17th July 2017  by Ryan Hemelaar - Operation 513 Leader  Bible passage 2 Timothy 2:20-21

No one wants to think of his own life as being a waste. We love knowing that the things that we do in life are meaningful and useful to people. But imagine being considered useful by the Lord? What an immense privilege that would be! We are going to looking at a passage in 2

Foot In Mouth – Mind Your Speech

Date 17th July 2017  by Bevan Burnes - Former Elder  Bible passage James 3:1-10

Almost every day in the various forms of media, there are stories of people making incriminating, degrading, libellous and incorrect claims about the lives and activities of people. Presidents, politicians, business leaders, pop stars, all seem to be on a ‘deliberate’ course to ruin someone’s life. An Australian actress has recently won a court case

Kept #2

Date 04th July 2017  by Ben Peletier  Bible passage Jude 24-25

These last two verses of Jude are easily the most well know from the book. It’s aclassic song and a popular closing verse but do you understand it within its context? Jude, a book we have worked through in the evenings, it isone that presents us with along list of challenges. It was a church

Kept #1

Date 04th July 2017  by Ben Peletier  Bible passage Jude 1:17-23

The book of Jude is a dark and confronting one. We have trudged through Jude verses 5- 16 seeing a church that was being pulled apart at the seams. While it might not feel like we face the same issues from within the church, in many ways our world offers us the very same temptations.

Mark: Jesus’ Teaching on Divorce

Date 04th July 2017  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Mark 9:42-50

Walking with Jesus, as we have been, through the gospel of Mark is a good thing. It helps us understand the teaching of Jesus in its context and, at times, forces us to deal with passages we might be tempted to skip over. Mark 10 brings us to one of those types of passages. Jesus

As you read this passage, you can imagine the disciples arguing about who would be awarded the prestigious award of ‘Christian of the Year’.

Towards Wholeness: Cleaning

Date: 01 March 2015, 17:03 by aiims

Most of us have heard the saying “cleanliness is next to godliness“. It may remind many of us of our disgruntled parents who said it over our untidy bedrooms as children or having heard it as the justification for the Saturday morning cleaning spree in the Christian household. Is it true though? Is being clean

Ruth: God’s Perfect Timing – NO SERMON

Date: 11 January 2015, 17:01 by aiims

The right place at the right time. Coincidence? Chance? Good luck? The wrong place at the wrong time. Bad luck? Fate? Accidental? Is this how we look at the circumstances of our lives? Where is God in all of this. That was the question that plagued Naomi in chapter 1 as she wonders why she

We all have had victories, gifts or blessings in our lives which caused us to exclaim in an exuberant tone of joyfulness the word ‘YEEAAAH!’ or just the simple old, but very loud and emotionally charged ‘YEESSS!’ We all know the feeling when we experience this on the sports field, at work, school, uni or

The Messenger’s Mission

Date: 16 February 2014, 09:02 by aiims

John the Baptist must be one of the most peculiar characters of Scripture. From Mark’s gospel we know he had a strange fashion sense, wearing clothes made out of rough camel hair; we know of his diet oddness, locusts and wild honey. Some might dismiss him as a crackpot, an oddball, or a weirdo but
