Notes . . .

In the Loop . . .
From our Deacons For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9 Arising from the Deacons Meeting last Tuesday evening, the following Special Church Meetings have been arranged: Next Sunday 25th March: A Special Information Meeting regarding a new and exciting Church Building direction. This meeting will be held in the Church at 12:00pm, following morning tea. Sunday week, 1st April: A Special Church Meeting to further consider the information presented the week before. This meeting will be held in the Hall from 6:00-8:00pm, starting with a shared meal. Please bring a plate of sandwiches and a plate of slice to share. Prayer Points: 1. Future direction regarding our church building 2. Provision of finance 3. Wisdom for decisions needed to be taken

We need to recollect sometimes the wonder that God is, and not just what he is.
