During the Covenant Service on 31 December 2018, Rev Darren shared with us that our Mission this year, is to develop a lifestyle of evangelism, and a culture of discipleship. He shared that we ought to always be looking at the harvest, which was 2018’s theme. Therefore, this year, we are embarking on a sermon series titled ‘Discipleship’. As you listen to the sermon series, it is our prayer, that you feel the call from God so strongly and embrace your call to discipleship.
As disciples of Christ, we ought to serve one another with care and love. How did the apostles handle the complaints from within the body of Christ regarding the lack of adequate and fair support to a group of widows? What can we learn from the apostles response and handling of the matter? This week, brother Joel shares with us the importance of adopting a NEW mindset in our service towards God and his people.
When we read about the Church in the Book of Acts, what thoughts come into our minds? Is the Acts Church a realistic model for us to aspire to? This week, Rev Darren encourages us from the word about what a healthy Church should look like, and the areas we need to be devoted to in terms of our devotion to the Word, and Fellowship.
On this journey of discipleship, there are times we might feel weighed down by the expectations of being a disciple. But take heart! We don’t journey as a disciple alone but with the Holy Spirit by our side. Brother Joseph shares with us five elements of being a disciple who walks by the spirit.
As Disciples of Christ, we are called to go into the world and bring the Good News to all. It is an important responsibility, yet unfortunately, many of us might not be embracing it. Sister Linnette shares an encouraging message to spur us to live out lives as bearers of the Good News!
On the weekend of our Annual General Meeting, Revd Darren reminds us of the importance of keeping our commitment to God through the story of Peter. We were then challenged to review our levels of commitment through our tithes, church attendance and to check our personal alignment to the church’s vision.
