IGNITE YOUTH
Ignite youth would like to send a shout out to all the generous members of the congregation who took turns and provided food for the youth every Friday night during 2018.
It was so much appreciated, and no one had to go home with an empty stomach. The youth also would like to thank the Elders and the Admin for all their support including providing the combi to take everyone home.
Heartfelt thanks to the IGNITE youth band and the tireless servant-leaders who made a program for the youth every week. It was a time of building and pursuit of eating solid food instead of drinking milk.
Special thanks also to members of the congregation who sponsored underprivileged youth from our neighbourhood to go to Youth for Christ camp in Magaliesburg in January.
A total of 38 young people were sponsored. To all of the above, you know who you are – God bless you all!

Please note that Friday 7 December will be the last Ignite youth of the year. Youth will start again late January – look out for announcements.

MEN’S MINISTRY PROJECT
The Men’s Ministry at its Men’s breakfast held on the 3rd November 2018 resolved unanimously that each man will contribute a minimum of P600.00 towards the project of paving the road and putting an exit gate on the road that leads to World of Golf.
There will be a table set up after both services where the MEN can make their pledges and pay for this noble project.
