We are currently working our way through Matthew's Gospel on Sunday mornings at RPC. So far this has reminded us that Jesus was not popular with the religious types, and he had time for the outcasts.
Being a follower of Jesus means that our actions should reflect the actions of Jesus. The Church, as the Body of Christ, should be involved with the work that Jesus did. This is a challenging thought!
How do we live like Jesus? How can the Church even begin to take on the role of Jesus and His ministry?
These are some of the questions that we are thinking about at 10am on a Sunday!
Teens are starting back this Friday at a new time with a new program.
3:30-6:30 on Friday afternoons during term time we will be running a drop in centre for those in year 6 - year 12 to hang out. From 6 - 8:30 we have our Teens Program with different activities each week. This Friday we are having a water fight. This is also for kids in year 6 - year 12 at school!
On Friday the 14th Feb from 12-4pm, and Saturday the 15th from 9-12am we are have a clothing sale to raise much need money for Chinese orphans.
The sale will be in our church hall on the corner of Squire and Bowden St.
There is a range of different clothes with something for all members of the family. Only items in good condition will be for sale.
Retail therapy for a good cause!
Our church times this Christmas are 7 pm on Christmas Eve, and then 9 am on Christmas morning. All are welcome to join us in celebrating the birth of our Saviour.
RPC would like to wish everyone in the Ryde/Meadowbank community a happy and meaningful Christmas!
At Church we are currently thinking about the heart. The biblical understanding of the heart is that it is the seat of our affections - the place where our motives come from. Our hearts want to love, they want to worship something/someone.
This Sunday we are thinking about having hearts of stone - hearts that have grown hard. People had heart trouble from early on in Genesis. What can be done about our heart problem? Come along, and have a free healthy heart check up while you are here!!
