To Seek and Save

Date 14th August 2011  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Luke 19 : 1 - 10

Although it does not always feel like it,living in the Redlands means that we live in an affluent, western culture. Many, if not most of us have everything we need to get by very comfortably.

Joseph: Grace Given to the Guilty

Date 07th August 2011  by John Hoogenhout - Pastor for Bray Park Community Church  Bible passage Rom.12:17, 19

Seeking revenge is so luring… but never heals the hurt. OT Joseph had serious reasons for seeking revenge from those who mistreated and misrepresented him. He’d been incarcerated in jail. Sold as a slave. Threatened with death. Joseph suffered heavy duty wrongs! The world screams ‘seek compensation!’ ‘You deserve revenge!’ But that’s not God’s way.

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.

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.
