It was great to hear so many personal stories from SCPC brothers & sisters at our Equip night on same-sex attraction. One of the big goals of the night was to open up dialogue on this important issue and also to show that sin loses its power when we bring it into the light by confessing our sin to one another. The gospel gives us the freedom to do this!
If you’d like to talk further about the theological dimension of same-sex attraction and where we stand as a church on the issue, Pete would welcome those conversations. If your interest is of a more personal nature, any of our speakers from the Equip night would love to hear from you.
And don’t forget that there are now about 10 new titles on same-sex attraction in the SCPC church library so drop into the office at Park Ave to browse and borrow.
UPDATE: I just realised I promised 5 ideas in the Weekly Email so here are two more to add to the three above…
4. Watch the video that I couldn’t get to play at start of the Equip night
5. Pray for ongoing good fruit from the Equip night – you could start here.
With the school holidays just around the corner, we’re looking for parents (and other helpers) to put up their hand for the Holiday Kids Church. If you’re around these holidays, please call or email Stew to organise a week that suits: 66213655; email@example.com
A message from Linda:
Dear SCPC Friends, It is only a week and a bit away to my re-commissioning service in Casino. It was so great to come and spend time with you guys a few months back. I would love it if, as one of my sending churches, you would come and be a part of this special service. It is SATURDAY 25th June 5pm for a service and 6-8pm for a bring and share pot luck dinner.
Let me know if you are coming: firstname.lastname@example.org
Partnering with Parents: Youth
Safari 2016 is all about helping our youth to spot & stop the idols in their lives so they can be free to truly trust in Jesus. Join us at Partnering with Parents to get equipped to bring the message home for maximum impact. Partnering with Parents will be straight after our morning gathering on 26th June, 11:15am in E block. Child care will be provided.
We’ve already got 40 Youth signed up for Safari which is a record for this time of year. A BIG THANK YOU to all the youth and parents who’ve got their regos in – it helps so much with getting everything organised.
But if you haven’t got your rego in yet, there’s still time – do it today! And it’s not too late to invite any friends you reckon might be keen to come along. So get onto it – and give them the chance to turn from fake gods to the REAL GOD at Safari 2016!
If the cost of Safari means you’re not sure if you can go, please talk to the common fund as subsidies may be available.
