CHRISTMAS DAY SERVICE
We will have a CoastKids Program running for the service for ages 3+. If you have children under the age of 3 there will be an area set up in the foyer for you to have your children and still be able to watch the service
This year our Christmas theme is ‘Turn Your Eyes’. It has been such a crazy year of loss, uncertainty, blessing, joy, pain and sometimes these have taken focus in our lives over Jesus. This Christmas we are reminded to Turn Our Eyes Upon Jesus. As we dive into this month we will be focusing on Jesus – blessing our community and being there for one another, using the borrowed term from the relationship expert Dr John Gottman, we will be choosing to “turn towards instead of away”
This years Encounter is an online event designed for women of ALL ages. The theme for 2020 is Cultivate. Ps Lou and the team have a vision to see Women Cultivate the gifts God has given to them. The word Cultivate means to bestow attention and labour upon, with a view to valuable returns, to direct special attention to devote time and thought to; to foster; to cherish; to court intimacy with. There is an old proverb “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” We believe that God has called women to rise up and declare his goodness.
