We are delighted that Mike Rayson, award-winning songwriter and minister, is coming to Marion Church of Christ for an evening of storytelling and song at Cafe Church on Sunday 12 May at 6pm.
Originally from South Australia, he emigrated to the United States in 2005. His music has won countless awards and accolades across the globe.
He has ministered in Westminster Abbey and is a regular presenter at Christian conferences in the UK. He has performed in over a dozen countries around the world and his songs are regularly aired on Christian radio.
He has experienced much in his life, including the death of his oldest son Sam in 2007 at age 11. Through it all, he has experienced grace.
Mike's message and his faith in God will minister to us - it will be a wonderful service to invite someone along - a friend, a family member, a neighbour.

A prayer for peace
Almighty God, we remember with thanksgiving, those who made the supreme sacrifice for us in times of war. We pray that their offering of their lives may not have been in vain. May your grace enable us this day to dedicate ourselves to the cause of justice, freedom and peace; and give us the wisdom and strength to build a better world.

“We all want the best for our kids. What if I told you there was a well researched program that could change your kids life. It can increase the average life-expectancy of your children by 8 years. Reduce the child's use and risk of alcohol, drugs and tobacco. It can dramatically lower the risk of suicide and help rebound from depression 70% faster. It will reduce the risk for committing a crime. Provide them with a life-long moral compass and provide children with a caring extended family. Interested? Well, according to Barna Research Group the program is called "Active Church Participation". Many people think church is irrelevant and boring, but many churches are thriving and many lives are being impacted. Maybe it's time you got involved in a healthy Bible based church. And instead just being a spectator, maybe it's time to be a participator.” Matt Prater
