TIME TO BUILD!
This evening at 6.00pm we continue in a 4-week series based on the Book of Nehemiah. Our theme today will be: WHAT WILL YOU NEED? (Nehemiah 2:2)
This will be an interactive study. Always ask yourself, what and how can I contribute to the building of the Body of Christ, the Church?
Final week: HOW LONG? (Nehemiah 2:6)
GODZONE: Children will have the same study custom-made for them!

Men are kindly requested to bring drinks for the occasion as is our custom.
Volunteers (young and old) are needed in preparing the various items on the menu.

YOUTH WEEK 2019! MAGALIESBURG RSA, 2 – 7 JANUARY. FOR YOUTH AGED 13 TO 22 YEARS.
Still one of the most popular events of the year for Christian youth. 5 days of sports, non-sports and adventure activities, good food and so much more.
But what remains most popular is tabernacle – twice a day, with great praise and worship and teaching by some of the top youth preachers in the region.
There is quiet time and bible study in the morning – so many opportunities for the youth to connect with God.
Many youth testify that they gave their lives to Christ at youth week.
Cost: P1,400 including transport, accommodation, food and everything.
