Holiday Bible Club

TPC enjoyed another exciting and busy holiday bible club.  It was great to see so many children join us each night.  The singing was loud, the bible story of Elisha was edifying, the craft and memory verses were great opportunities to learn biblical truths and the games was the usual high energy affair!  The last night was exclusive to p6+ and was taken by the youth club leaders to show the older kids how the club works.  Some of the existing youth club members came down to help that night which was really welcomed.

One memory verse from the week was from Proverbs 3 “trust the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Our hope is that this verse will stay with the children and as they grow up they will see their need for Christ and learn to trust Him for salvation and for life’s paths.

Church BBQ

The church BBQ will take place this Friday at the Faith Mission Centre, Mahon Road.  The BBQ is open to all so we hope to see the whole congregation down.  Food will be from 7pm and there will be games for the kids, big and small.  Friends of the congregation are welcome so please feel free to invite people.  You can share this blog or try the old fashioned way of just saying to someone.

Let us “send them off”

“While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”  Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.” Acts 13:2-3 ESV (italics added).

The reality that the Lord sets people apart for His work is evident throughout the history of the church.  The great commission continues until Jesus’ return and the need for the gospel to be preached is ever urgent.  The call has come to Chris and Rachel Humphries to go to Portugal.  A country starved of the gospel and in need of workers to spread the gospel and disciple those who are saved by Christ.  The departure of the Humphries will be keenly felt by the church family at Tartaraghan PC but the joy of helping and encouraging the Humphries in such important work is ours to be embraced.  The task to uphold them in prayer and provide for them in anyway is ours to own.   And it starts by sending them off.

Tartaraghan PC will be hosting this “sending off” through a service of commissioning, for details click here.  It will be an opportunity to worship the Lord and encourage the Humphries before they set off to Portugal.  A crèche and children’s church will be provided and there will be supper after the service.
