Welcome to the latest edition of the Friendly Word.
We hope you take advantage of all the contents, so you not only know what is on and when, but will take note of things you can be encouraged and ways to support others. We particularly seek you to join us in prayer for a number of issues, some are listed in the prayer points but for the programs, finances and ministries too.
We look forward to sharing with you all on Sunday, 10am Family Service and then....it's on again BBQ Church 6pm!
See you there
Blessings this Mother's Day - May the kindness of God refresh your heart. May the goodness of God refresh your soul.
May the faithfulness of God refresh your spirit. May all the good things that come from Him fill you with His love and joy.
Mike Rayson will be joining us at our 6pm service this Sunday.

2 Corinthians 5:15 New International Version (NIV)
15 And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again.
Lest we Forget ...
Lord God, help us this day to remember the sacrifice of the first ANZACs, Australian and New Zealander, and the generations of men, women and children who have died in the cause of liberty and peace.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Lord God, help us to remember.
This Sunday we will be celebrating Palm Sunday! The first of our special Easter Services - the day when we remember Jesus entering into Jerusalem.
We are so blessed to be able to celebrate Easter with the freedom that we have all because of what Jesus did for us on that very first Easter.
