Prayer Update (Aug/Sept 2020)



Hey Friends!
Here's a few things to keep you in the loop and up to date so you can pray for us!
THE KIDS...
It's such a privilege sharing a home with this little crew.

Caleb (aka Dr Squeekins) has been enjoying his visits to the Lapidary club (look it up!) and he's uploaded his second video to his YouTube channel.

Hannah, our little princess, turned 10. What a joy she is!

And Chloe got baptised because she loves the Lord! yew!

Such a privilege to baptise my own kid!
BAPTISMS
We also baptised a bunch of our people on the same day as Chloe
Praise God for new life in Christ!
(Congrats John, Treena, Harry, Lily, Sam & Chloe!).
Check out this vid and hear them share their heart


 
SAM'S STORY...
My name is Samantha and recently I have chosen to pursue Jesus. Before I had met Jesus, I was completely unaware of sin. I didn’t know how detrimental it was or even thought about how much I sinned. I was living my life self-centred and not God-centred.
The first time I was invited to youth group, I had so much fun. I was warmly welcomed and started to learn more about who God was and how much I had been unaware of my entire life. As I continued to attend youth, and started attending church, I realised how welcoming, loving and kind every christian I met was. I decided that I wanted to love like those around me and with Gemma, found myself reading Gods word and learning how to live like Jesus. With the help of many, I was very lucky to be so welcomed into Coast and am very grateful I have found a family as wonderful as the one I've found through Christ.

Now that I have found Jesus, I continually strive everyday to live as He would. I have recognised my sin, repented and will strive to live for God, I have never been more happier and content knowing I am loved by the greatest King of all.

SUNDAYS

We rebooted our Sundays Services at the school hall on the 19th July
It felt a bit weird with spaced out seating and no singing, but it was still great to be gathered with others face to face.
Please pray for all our people to make the transition back, and for those who connected with us online to join us in-person.
Pray also for wisdom as we navigate the bumps and turns on the road ahead.
 
LAND

Some of our leaders and those involved in the purchase of our land took a moment to gather on our block to celebrate the finalising of the purchase, to thank the Lord for his provision, and to pray that many would come to know Him, and grow in Him on this site.
Please pray for wisdom as we now work with council and various specialists in the design phase!
FINANCES - PRETTY TIGHT!!! WANNA CHIP IN??

It's been a tough time for many with losses of jobs and income.
As a church, we're also feeling it (with no cash collections from our Sunday Services)
We are behind budget by a fair chunk, so would love you to invest in our ministries by giving generously if you're able.
Even a small gift would go a long way!
Or maybe invest your tax return into out ministries?

Go on - click THIS - and make a sweet investment!
Philippians 1:3-7
"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart"
