Thought for the Week

If you meet somebody today who needs encouragement, go ahead and give it to them - more people die of broken hearts than swelled heads.  (Hebrews 10.25 and 1 Thessalonians 5:11) 

Today Is Mission Sunday:   It is the day when we are being asked to dig into our hearts to assist the young local church overseas.  We are being called to play our part in helping to bring the word of God to those who most hunger for it in the form of support for our many young churches.  ‘Growing in Faith’ is our theme for Mission Month and as such our spiritual and financial offerings are crucial for the work of the Church overseas.  Your generous contribution today will be sent in it’s entirety to support our many mission projects.  We can’t do it without you.  Large or small, it makes a difference and thank you for your help.
