Message from Pastor Matthew

IS THERE HOPE FOR THE HOPELESS

We are privileged to have Dale More sharing his testimony with us this evening. Bring the unsaved and let them see what Jesus can do in changing people’s lives.
“I am an ex-gang member and drug addict. I now walk the cross around and tell others that Jesus loves them. For many years I was a meth addict. I was subject to two armed offender call outs with orders to be shot on sight on the last one. I was accused of
murder and came to faith in prison while
awaiting trial.”

Jesus answered them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:31-32).

God bless you as you live for Jesus Christ,
Pastor Matthew

Women’s Ministry Evening

Ranui Baptist

Women's Ministry Evening

Friday evening last week saw 74 or so women from our church, including invited friends and family, arriving at 7pm for our Women’s Ministry Evening.
Time to connect, have a hot drink, delicious food. We spent time in the café enjoying one another’s company before heading into the beautifully decorated auditorium to hear our speaker, Aimee Walker.
Jane had spent the afternoon decorating the auditorium with one of her installations that illustrated so skilfully the message of freedom that we’d asked Aimee to speak about.
Aimee spoke very clearly about our need to look and see what limits our freedom – going for what is less than God’s best for us. There was an opportunity to exchange what limits us for the freedom in Jesus. My exchange was worry and anxiety for God’s peace. We ended with communion, a huge loaf of freshly baked bread broken and dipped into dark red juice. This was our symbol of accepting the freedom Jesus had given us.
Our next Women’s Ministry evening will be around the end of July. Please do come, it’ll be very good.
Penelope and the Women’s Ministry Team
