Please Pray And Uplift Your Pastor Daily

Day in and day out, week after week your pastor works on your behalf. There are many trials and tribulations that your pastor faces day after day that we may never hear about. Please pray and uplift your pastor day by day and when you have the opportunity, speak some encouragement into his life. Below is the the reading from "The Word For Today" for the 14th February 2019.

'Honour...your leaders in the Lord's work.' 1 Thessalonians 5:12 NLT

If you want to encourage your pastor:
(1) Cut the criticism. Most workers are evaluated each year based on their job performance; pastors are evaluated every week. Remember, if a particular sermon doesn't scratch where you itch, chances are somebody else needs to hear it.

(2) 'Remember your leaders who taught you the Word' (Hebrews 13:7 NLT), and pray for their spiritual growth. Goethe said, 'If you treat a person as he is, he'll stay that way. But if you treat him as what he ought to be, he'll become what he ought to be and could be.'

(3) Write a note. Especially when something your leader says or does ministers to you. Verbal encouragement is good, but a note can be read many times over.

(4) Put your talents to work. For example, if you're mechanically inclined, service the pastor's car. If you're technologically savy, help them improve their computer skills. Instead of saying, 'You need to do this,' say, 'I'd like to help by doing.' Ask where your skills are most needed and become an active participant.

(5) Squash gossip. James said, 'If you...don't control your tongue...your religion is worthless' (James 1:26 NLT). Counter negative talk with positive comments, and correct misinformation with truth. If all else fails - walk away!

(6) Be openly responsive. Nothing encourages leaders like seeing people respond to their preaching and teaching.

(7) Lose the measuring stick. Instead of expecting them to be a mirror image of their predecessor, thank God for your pastor's individual style to minister to those in need.

Small Groups

  Small Groups are now operating for 2019. These groups are designed for you to have a closer relationship with people in the church and for you to grow in the knowledge of God. If you are not attending a Small Group but feel you would like to - please contact Pastor Brian who will assist you in determining which one is best suited for you.

Are you a person who for what ever reason does not or can not attend church, but feel you may be comfortable to learn about and discuss God's word in the comfort of some ones lounge? If so, a Small Group may be for you. Phone the church on the number at the foot of the page and explain to the receptionist or Pastor your situation and ask to be recommended a Small Group to attend.
