The World vs Jesus

Date 24th July 2011  by Ryan Hemelaar - Operation 513 Leader  Bible passage John 15:18-25

Australians love watching their favourite team. But did you know that everyone is actually part of a team? The passage we’ll be looking at this Sunday morning comes from the gospel of John where Jesus outlines for us two teams. These two teams encompass the whole of humanity, with some in one and the rest

Be All You Can Be?

Date 03rd July 2011  by Bevan Burnes - Elder  Bible passage 2 Peter 1:3-11

How much would you be willing to pay for a piece of fruit? In Japan someone paid more than $6000 for one Densuke watermelon. Grown only on the northern island of Hokkaido, this beautiful dark-green fruit looks like a bowling ball. The fruit’s rarity brought an astronomical price on the market. Christians have fruit that

Joseph: Favoured Son, Hated Brother

Date 19th June 2011  by John Hoogenhout - Pastor for Bray Park Community Church  Bible passage Genesis 37 : 2 - 11

In this first sermon in a series on the life of OT Joseph, we see how dysfunctional Joseph’s family of origin was. Sad and bad events caused unbelievable heartache and hardship to this large family. Yet, their dysfunction didn’t thwart God’s plans for using this family to fulfil His plan for His people. What do

Jesus Is Enough

Date 19th June 2011  by Ryan Hemelaar - Operation 513 Leader  Bible passage Colossians 2 : 16 - 23

In the world there are all sorts of religious practices out there. From animal worship to flagellation, people do many various things in order to appease their so-called deity. This was the same in the Apostles’ day, with some groups of Jews insisting on festival and Sabbath keeping in order for forgiveness. While other Gentiles

Real Community

Date 12th June 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Philemon

On the surface the book of Philemon seems to be about a runaway slave, his conversion and then Paul’s attempt to have him reunited with his master. And that is certainly the story behind the letter. But interwoven in this story is so much teaching on the nature of Christian Community. That as the body

Real Community: Family Acceptance

Date 12th June 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Romans 16 : 1 - 16

So far in our series “Real Community” we have seen the call to love each other as Christ has loved us. But this week we are going to look at an aspect of Christian community that makes it unlike any other we could experience, as we see community forged on the front line of mission.

ME, ME, ME

Date 05th June 2011  by Clinton Berends and Mark Flynn  Bible passage Mark 10:35-45

This service is led by the HSM. The topic for the service is ‘Me, me, me’. Looking at the way our self centred culture impacts us and, most importantly, how Jesus calls us into a kingdom that is about service.  

Real Community: Love – How To

Date 05th June 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Romans 13 : 8 - 14

Over the last couple of weeks we have looked at the issues of love and unity within the church. We have been challenged by how living under Jesus, in the church, asks from us a completely different attitude from what we know anywhere else. One that seeks to constantly give, instead of receive. But with

Compassion

Date 29th May 2011  by Kevin Rietveld - CRCA Solomon Island Missionary  Bible passage Matthew 25:31-46

This Sunday evening we have Kevin Rietveld preaching. Kevin and his wife Machi are CRCA missionaries in Solomon Islands. As well as preaching, Kevil and Machi will be sharing about some of their work.  

Real Community: Unity

Date 29th May 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Romans 12:14-16

In John 17 Jesus prayed for the church. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. But really, as we look at the church and the pressures that are applied we have to question whether this is
