I hope 2014 is going well for you! We really value your prayer, friendship and financial support. Please thank God for His amazing provision through the generosity of churches and Christians. We could not be doing what we're doing without it. Here are some things that have been happening or are coming up so you can pray in an informed way. Have a great day.
Chris (on behalf of CoastEC).
Praise God because we’ve just had 26 people attend our first ever Foundations course and 9 of them are new to church. The goal was to give new believers and those making a spiritual comeback a solid grounding in the basics of Christianity. Please pray for those who attended Foundations - that they’d keep building on the Foundation of Jesus as the Lord and Saviour, by basing their lives on God’s Word, the bible. Ask that they’d plug into a Home Group and start connecting relationally at church. Pray that God would help them grow to maturity in Christ.
2. CAP MONEY
Please pray for Mark and Kerrie as they run this basic money management course for people from our church and community over 3 Tuesday nights in March (4th, 11th, 18th). We hope this course is a real blessing to people in our town who struggle financially and for those in our church who struggle to be wise and generous stewards of the resources God has entrusted them with.
3. EASTER SERVICES
Thank God for bringing us to our 5th B'day as a church this Easter! Ask for many to attend our services so they can meet the Risen Saviour too!
4. TESTIMONY TRAINING
Pray for our people to grow in their desire and ability to share their testimony. Training will be happening in our home groups to equip our people to talk naturally about their own encounter with Jesus and the impact he has had on their lives.
