“Oasis@Midweek Craft Help
As you heard, our kickoff for Oasis@Midweek went very well. One of the components added was a monthly craft led by our Oasis Craft station leader Krista Schito. Thanks Krista!! As we move forward she’s shared the following request:
“Do you have craft supplies around the house that you’re willing to donate, to be used by the kids to make a fun craft to help them reinforce the Bible lesson? If so, please bring them upstairs to Kids Church and we will be happy to incorporate them. Examples include: beads, yarn, glue, string, pompoms, stickers, hot glue guns & glue sticks, paint, popsicle sticks, gems, shells, special rocks, etc. Anything that might fit the theme of treasure or “You are a priceless treasure to God” is useful. Thank you for considering!”
If you have questions about this, or have something you think she could use, please contact Krista.
Join us on Sunday in-person or on our livestream as we look at a church in motion
This Sunday at 11am we continue our fall series: “A church in motion”: the book of Acts. I will be looking at a big chunk this week dealing with some the pressures the early church faced as we look at chapter 6 to 9. How does this apply to what we’re facing today? We’ll see on Sunday!
Remember, you can join us as we gather in-person or you can connect through our website www.guelphbiblechapel.ca our YouTube channel as well as Facebook LIVE.
Thought for the day: Ever think of fruit as a gift from God?
Let’s look at this idea of the Fruit of the Spirit in a different way. Because the Holy Spirit is a gift to believers, God gives us the power to live fruitful lives. Christianity is not a rules-based religion (though there are some!). Our growth is not gained based on how much good we do, but it’s an outpouring of a relationship with a living God that forces and encourages us to live better; to aspire to be like Him; to be holy as He is holy. Growing the fruit of the Spirit in our lives is evidence of these internal changes. When we nurture our relationship with God, we have access to the Son, and we water our lives with his Word. When we do that, we grow and are equipped to deal with whatever the world throws at us. How practical! But then again, that’s our God! I hope that is both an encouragement and challenge. Oh, its also something for us to be thankful for.
In His grip,
