Feelings and Prayer

Because #weareallinthistogether could I encourage you to not minimize the feelings of anyone in this COVID-19 Pandemic season, for we are all vulnerable, and we have not been this way before.

Each of us have different personalities and temperaments in response to all of these things. Some among us very quickly make known how they feel about what ever thing it is that bothers them. Some very quickly make known their irritations about the strange season and about the responses of others to this strange season. Some of us keep things to ourselves.  We all need care, understanding and prayer. Check in on your family, your friend, your neighbour.  Call them, message them, let them know you are there to help.

💜 I encourage you to pray for another in the name of Jesus to our Heavenly Father.🙏

The authority of God

Where everyone has an opinion about how to handle issues relating to what has become a crisis, and frankly your opinion is just one among many other community opinions, so lets honour and pray for our leaders.  These are trying times.

By the way, this is all new territory for our political leaders as it is for us, and each day brings a new challenge, so the decision today could be changed tomorrow. Please be patient.

 

ROMANS 13: 1-5 (NIV)

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.

SPIRES KIDS CLUB ON HOLD

Kids Club – Temporarily On Hold with Immediate Effect

Hi Everyone 🙂

Hope that you are having a good week and that things aren’t too crazy for you.

Pastor Gordon and myself have been in discussions today with regards to the Coronavirus and the new changes that have come to light today.  Whilst we understand that our Kids Club meets the requirement of an “Inside Gathering of Less than 100 People”, we cannot however guarantee that we will be able to meet the social distancing guidelines.  Due to the age of our Kids Club Little People and how tactile and lovable you all are it is very difficult to control or enforce the social distancing requirements, and honestly, nor do we want your loving little hearts to change.

Kids Club will DEFINITELY be back, and we will miss you so much!  You are very special to us.

We will continue to pray for you and your family. 

Love and blessings,

Charlene and the Kids Club Team 💜💜💜

Spires Life Church is praying for our leaders

Spires Life Church would like to honour our Prime Minister, Mr Scott Morrison, and our State Premier, Mr Mark McGowan for their leadership in these trying times. 

1 TIMOTHY 2:1-4 (TPT)

 1 Most of all, I’m writing to encourage you to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion. And pray for every political leader and representative, so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, as we worship the awe-inspiring God with pure hearts. It is pleasing to our Saviour-God to pray for them. He longs for everyone to embrace his life and return to the full knowledge of the truth.

Vision Builders – Part 3

vision builders – part 3

 
During 2018 we launched our Vision Builders initiative at Spires Life Church. In the lead up to our 2018 Vision Sunday on the last Sunday in October last year, we outlined the way Vision Builders would work, what the heart of a Vision Builder would look like, how to invest in Vision Builders, and the kinds of things that Vision Builders would facilitate outside of the general budget. Following Vision Sunday, we encouraged people to signify any amounts they would be willing to invest in Vision Builders over the coming 12 month period, and any weekly Vision Builders amounts to commence during November. Of course, giving through Vision Builders would be amounts that were over and above regular weekly giving. Vision Builders funds would be used to facilitate and fund mission, facilities upgrade and debt reduction. By the end of November 2018, and number of people had submitted their pledges, and others did so over the next few months. So far we have received in excess of $20,000.00 in Vision Builders (this does not include the $3500.00 given to purchase the John Deere ride on mower); some money came in by weekly amounts, and other money came in by larger one off lump sums.
Money so far has been used to:
  • Upgrade the female toilets.
  • Provide storage in the CMC for Kids Club, Camp Sonshine, Playgroup.
  • Debt reduction.
  • Computers upgrade in Admin Centre and Children’s Ministry Centre check in.
As we move toward Vision Sunday on 27th October 2019, I invite you and encourage you to pray and to consider being an investor in Vision Builders in the upcoming year. As you pray, please consider the amount you will give, and whether you will be a weekly, fortnightly, monthly giver over and above your regular giving, or whether you will give a one off, or a number of lump sum gifts. The plan this year is for the pledge cards to be available during October so that they can be submitted on 27th October, Vision Sunday.
 
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously
will also reap generously.”   (2 Corinthians 9:6 NIV)
 
Thank you again for your generosity. This year for our Vision Sunday our theme is change. We are believing that through Vision Builders your generosity will help facilitate positive change in Jesus’ name.
 
Your partner in the gospel
Gordon

Vision Builders – Part 2

VISION BUILDERS MESSAGE FROM SENIOR PASTOR:-

 

During July 2018, I posted a blog about the commencement of VISION BUILDERS at Spires Life Church. In that blog I wrote about “The Heart of a Vision Builder,” as well as the purpose of the VISION BUILDERS initiative. After some initial communication, we launched the VISION BUILDERS initiative at our annual Vision Sunday on the 28th October 2018. VISION BUILDERS exists to meet certain financial needs without impinging on the general budget. Included in these needs are:

  • Office computer upgrade.
  • Building maintenance & upgrades.
  • Mission initiatives.
  • Debt reduction.

The idea was that by the end of November 2018, people would signify their financial pledges to VISION BUILDERS over and above their regular weekly giving; and in early February we would re-visit the idea of VISION BUILDERS in one of our Sunday morning messages for encouragement and accountability. By the end of November numerous people made their pledges: some signified giving weekly amounts, some monthly amounts, and some signified giving “once off” larger amounts. After the message in early February 2019 titled “Honour Your Vows,” some people either took up the challenge to be involved or were reminded of their initial pledge from November 2018 and became part of the VISION BUILDERS initiative. As of 23rd April 2019, $10,904.10 has been received into the VISION BUILDERS account over and above regular giving; this is in addition to the $3500.00 that was given to purchase the John Deere ride on mower just prior to the VISION BUILDERS initiative being established.   Current projects and initiatives that will be completed by the end of May 2019, and which will be financed by VISION BUILDERS are:

  • Renovation and make over of Ladies toilets in the main building.
  • Storage in the Children’s Ministry Centre for Playgroup, Camp Sonshine, Kids Club.
We are so thankful and appreciative of your generosity to the VISION BUILDERS initiative, as it allows us to facilitate projects that fall outside of our general budget. We believe that as we continue to invest in and through VISION BUILDERS, all of us will see, not just good care and maintenance of buildings, facilities and ministries, but we will also see kingdom growth.
 
Pastor Gordon Bassett
