This Sunday

Admin —  February 12, 2016

This Sunday we will be meeting for our family service at 10.30am at The Littlehampton Academy, we continue our topic ‘Faith & Money’ (from Matthew 6:19-21/Proverbs 3 & 8:18/Luke 16).

The Chapel will be available for parents with babies and toddlers this week.

Please be aware that each Sunday, as we meet in a public building, Arun Community Church cannot accept responsibility for your children’s safety during, before or after the meeting apart from during supervised activities. Pack down can also be particularly hazardous with the removal of heavy equipment. Please do not allow your children up onto the balcony level in the Atrium as this is out of bounds. Thank you.

The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. (Genesis 2:15 NIV)

As much as Lent is about laying things down and making sacrifices, it is also about picking up the things that are really important. It is about dying to self, to live generously and to lose our lives so as to truly find them as we step into God’s great mission to bring The Kingdom to planet earth. It is not our belief that there is going to be a mass evacuation, but rather that through the finished work of Jesus, heaven is coming to us. Genesis 2:15 tells us that right from the beginning we were made to work and care for creation.

This week we have a three-part challenge!

  • To hit the streets in your local community armed with some rubber gloves and bin bags, and pick up any rubbish you might find.
  • Offer to so some chores for a friend, family member or neighbour. This could be anything from cleaning their car, mowing their lawn to doing various chores around the house.
  • And finally to pick a day to fast using your car, and to walk or cycle instead.
Let’s roll up our sleeves and make our world cleaner this week!
