“FIX YOUR EYES ON JESUS”
January 2019 has been a busy month already at SVC.
John began the year by speaking on our focus for 2019 “fix your eyes on Jesus”, Hebrews 12 v1-2 which was the passage that the original leaders used at the very beginning when setting up SVC. He explained that this year we are going back to the beginning “new year, old focus”. It’s the first full year of our new leadership team and a time that as a church we are recommitting ourselves. That as we rest in God’s love and keeping, He would be with us again this year as we fix our eyes and draw closer to Him.
The 2nd Sunday in January was CAP Sunday. Our fabulous CAP team met with both CCP & SVC to update us on the great work as we gave thanks to God for his continued blessing & provision. Laura & Ally spoke passionately about the positive impact CAP has within our community, we heard uplifting testimonies from clients involved in both the CAP Debt Centre and CAP Life Skills, and Phil shared with us the SVC Mission Summary (the 4 B’s):
- To Bless people through service in witness to the love of God – CAP Debt help and Life Skills courses, and more…
- To Belong to the Church community, – by welcome, social/community time (with food!) at church, kids groups, social events, CAP Socials, and more…
- To Believe in Jesus – helped through CAP weekends, calls to faith at church and in Life Explored, one to one evangelism
- To Become more like Jesus. – church community, worship teaching, study, prayer and discipleship in Life Groups … Learning to Bless others.
On the 19th our women got together for a couple of hours to hear/talk about how we can “Renew our Strength” at the start of this year. Simone shared with us some ideas on how we can spend time with God and a very lovely time was had by all.
So the start of 2019 has been filled with refreshment for us as we continue to praise God for all he has done and will do. A time to be uplifted and renewed as we now start to crack on!
