Showers of Blessings, Zimbabwe

Showers of Blessing was established by the Associated Churches of Christ in Zimbabwe in 2007. The organization has been drilling wells in drought-prone rural areas since that time. A well makes a huge impact on a village. It provides safe water, reducing diseases like cholera and diarrhoea. Access to safe water means that a greater variety of vegetables can be grown, improving nutrition, which is especially important for people with HIV/Aids. Reliable water also means that new income-generating activities can be started, for example growing vegetables or brickmaking.

OAC Ministries here this Sunday

schools

This coming Sunday 21st February we have the pleasure of welcoming our guest speaker, Rob George from OAC Ministries.

Rob is the International President of OAC Ministries and we are privileged to have him visit. On their OACM website he says:

“I love preaching in the open air to large, attentive crowds, as sometimes (but certainly not always) happens in various countries. Once, in Kenya, at a night film meeting with over 400 people there, you could have heard a pin drop! The “holy hush” as some have described it. Most recently this occurred for me in Lima, Peru with over 200 at an afternoon meeting.

Great visuals enliven any presentation. The fluorescent light and paints for night open airs is especially good, as is an intriguing magic trick that packs a powerful message. Also, knowing your audience, to adapt the presentation to their level of understanding.”

Praise the Lord

“Praise the Lord. Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of his saints… For the Lord takes delight in His people; He crowns the humble with salvation.” Psalm 149.

As people loved by God, let us then enter into our worship this morning in and with the spirit that they psalmist exhibits. This morning is different from “normal” in that our focus is on the social evil of domestic violence. Because of this it is our privilege to welcome our guest speaker, Sgt Karen Newman, from the Murray Mallee Crime Prevention Section based here in Murray Bridge.

To everyone else who is present as a visitor we offer you also an extra special greeting together with an invitation to stay after the service for a time of fellowship.

Leading us in worship is our pastor, Grant Spangenberg, while our leader in our time of communion will be Rob Frazer.

A reminder that our service commences at 10am and usually finishes around 11:30am, followed by a time of fellowship over a cuppa in the Coffee Shop.

Venue: 32 Seventh Street, Murray Bridge.

Creation Ministries speaker this Sunday

This coming Sunday 16th August 2015 our special guest speaker will be Dr Tas Walker from Creation Ministries International.

The topic of our speaker will be “Creation: Impacting the Modern World.”

Tas holds a B.Sc. (Earth Science with first class honours), a B.Eng (hons) and a doctorate in mechanical engineering, all from the University of Queensland.

He has been involved in the planning, design and operation of power stations for over 20 years with the electricity industry in Queensland, Australia. He has conducted geological assessments of new fuel supplies for power stations across Queensland and has been involved with new mining proposals, including the effects of geological factors on the cost, reliability and quality of the coal produced.

Tas has also been involved in the planning of a large hydro-electric development which required evaluation of geological conditions and their effect on dams, water reservoirs and underground power station structures.

Using his varied experience, Tas has developed a biblical geological model to connect geological structures in the field with biblical history. He has applied this geological model to the Great Artesian Basin in Australia, the basement rocks in Brisbane and the Banks Peninsula in New Zealand. He and other creationist geologists are now applying the model to other areas of the world.

Tas now works full-time for Creation Ministries International (CMI) in Brisbane, where he is employed as a researcher, writer and speaker. He has authored many articles in both Creation magazine and the Journal of Creation (formerly TJ).

Our service commences at 10am in our worship centre at 32 Seventh Street Murray Bridge. All are welcome.

GET ANSWERS!

Does God exist? How can anyone believe in religion when science has proved no God is necessary? Is evolution happening today? If there is a loving God, then why do we die?

Want answers? Get them! Creation Ministries International is coming soon (see details below) with answers to these and many other important questions. Come along and listen to Dr Tas Walker expose the bankruptcy of evolutionary ideas. You’ll be blown away to see how the supposed ‘scientific evidence for evolution’ is really nothing of the sort.

This is an issue that affects everyone. According to the theory of evolution as taught in schools and universities, there is no need for God – everything made itself. If that’s true, it means there is no spiritual realm – you don’t have a spirit and there is no afterlife. So ‘spirituality’ is just an ‘evolutionary trick of the mind’!

But the Bible gives a very different picture about our origins. And many scientists now recognise that the scientific evidence, when properly understood, confirms the biblical account.

To find out more contact Pastor Grant Spangenberg on 8532 2883 or 0419 848 336.
