A Weekly Word From The Pastors Desk - 31st march 2020
Pastor Eugene Hor encourages us this week to, 'remember that in Jesus you have someone who is powerfully in control of the situation you find yourself in, and you have someone who is deeply committed to you.'
Changes To Small Group Meetings Covid 19
We are not a people without hope or without God, and we are certainly not a people without a community! The elders and pastors have met online last night and have decided to make several changes to all small group meetings at GracePoint and will be looking at working out ways to keep us ‘meeting’ together in the weeks and the months ahead.
Covid-19 Small Group Hosting Guidelines
In light of advice from NSW Health, we’ve decided to put some protective measures in place at all our GracePoint gatherings (Sunday worship in small groups, community groups, ACG micro-groups). Out of love for each other we want our gatherings to be a place where those who come are safe and looked after.
Changes To Church Services - Covid19 Update
Because of Covid-19 things have been rapidly changing. The elders and I believe it’s important to let you know of our plans from next Sunday that we believe would be best for GracePoint and the wider community.
Covid Update Letter - GracePoint
There have been some significant changes this last week in regards to the coronavirus (Covid-19) and we're updating you on how as a church community we should respond. We will be working to do our best to care for our church community and our wider community, especially to those who are most vulnerable to the virus.
The Threat To God's Mission
The greatest threat to God’s mission is actually our hearts propensity to replace Him with an idol. Author Miroslav Volf writes that when we forget God’s grace to us, ‘Our hearts become factories of idols in which we fashion and refashion God to fit our needs and desires.’
Vision Sunday October 2019
On Vision Sunday 27th October 2019 we want to share with you our 2020 ministry initiatives and plans, and what we hope to see God do for us as a church. We want you to come together for the gospel at GracePoint in praise for the God who has saved and gathered us, in prayerful dependence on the God who brings growth, and in partnership together serving the God who sends us to bring the gospel to the nations and for the generations.
Taking Personal Responsibility For Your Growth In Godliness
“No Spiritual Discipline is more important than the intake of God’s Word. Nothing can substitute for it. There simply is no healthy Christian life apart from a diet of the milk and meat of Scripture.” - Donald Whitney, Spiritual Disciplines For The Christian Life
Are We Chasing With As Much Fervour?
The Apostle Paul states it most sharply when he says: Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever (1 Corinthians 9:24-25) Are we running with as much fervour in the Christian life?
