North Youth: Our Future!

Today we welcome our North Youth, as they enthusiastically lead us in both services.

The service might be a bit more upbeat as our youth team will be handling all aspects of the service. This will be a wonderful time for our youth to use their gifts and grow in their relationship with God as they seek Him in leading us.

Can we encourage you to welcome them warmly and join in enthusiastically as they lead us today! They are indeed the future generation of North Church and we love seeing how much they are growing in their walk with God and in their relationships with each other.

Maybe we can learn a thing or two from them!

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12 NIV)

Brett & Michelle Mitchell

Strength & Dignity

The modern celebration of Mothers’ Day first began in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist church in West Virginia. Anna had begun campaigning to make Mothers’ day a recognised holiday in the US in 1905, the year her mother Ann Reeves Jarvis died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil war and had created Mothers’ Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honour her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honour all mothers, because she believed a mother is, “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”.

This week, we honour our mothers and the mother figures in our lives and thank God for their kindness, tears, strength, and dignity.

She is clothed in strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.Proverbs 31:25-31

Happy Mother’s Day!

Globally Aware

This week, we take a look at the concept of ‘Faith, Promise Giving’. It’s probably best defined as:

What is it that the Lord will give to me this coming year, which He wouldn’t otherwise give to me unless He could trust me to pass it on?

This coming year our Church ‘faith promise giving’ will be wholly directed to the work Paul and Lydia Morton-Zandt have been called to do, in Cambodia, in the years to come.

God Bless, Brett.

Sunday, April 29th, 2018

Love

If I asked you to define Christianity with one word what would that word be? I’d say many of us would answer, “Love”. Today we’re looking at 1 John 4:7-11. This passage is all about love. Because God is love and loves us we are called to love one another. Because God loves us He sent Jesus His Son to set us free from the sin that seeks to take love and hope away from us. No matter who you are or what you’ve gone through remember God loves you and wants you to show people love.

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:7-11 (NIV).

God Bless, Rob.

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

Titles, Tags and Labels

I am continuing my mini-series this week and we’re moving on from taking a look at the ‘apostolic’ gift. This Sunday, we’re going to examine the life and characteristics of a famous Evangelist.

 The word origin and history for evangelist:

n.
late 12c., “Matthew, Mark, Luke or John,” from Old French evangelist and directly from Late Latin evangelista, from Greek euangelistes “preacher of the gospel,” literally “bringer of good news,” from euangelizesthai “bring good news,” from eu- “good” (see eu- ) + angellein “announce,” from angelos “messenger” (see angel ). 

The Word of God exhorts declares believers shall ‘all be witnesses’ (Acts 1:8) to the good news of God when the Holy Spirit comes upon us. Looking at the life of a great Evangelist will challenge us all to live like them and see what God can do through lives wholeheartedly surrendered to Him.

 

God Bless, Brett.

Titles, Tags and Labels

I’ve never been a big fan of titles, tags or labels.

For example, I am often referred to as ‘Pastor Brett’ however, I am much more than just ‘Pastor’ – I am also a Citizen; a Son; a Husband; a Father; an employee, etc., etc. AND equally true: sometimes I am less than a ‘Pastor’ when I don’t fulfil that function well.

Society loves to place titles, tags and labels on us all. Sometimes it helps to frame who we are, whereas at other times it just boxes people in to stereotypes.

Today, we look at the Apostolic gift, given by God for the building up of the Church (Ephesians 4:11-13). It’s so much more than just a title, tag or label.

God Bless, Brett.

Sunday April 8th, 2018

The Power of Faith

If faith was easy everybody would be exercising it. But it’s not. The main reason is it goes against our human nature. We want to control things and have them run in a way that we can manage. Biblical faith says trust God even when things seem out of control. Faith in Jesus means having a confidence in what we hope for and assurance of what we do not see. Faith trusts Jesus.

“Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.
“‘Where did this man get these things?’ they asked. ‘What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?’ And they took offense at him.
“Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.’ He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith.” Mark 6:1-6 (NIV)

 

God Bless, Rob.

Welcome

Easter, 2018

Empty.

I am often reminded, at Easter, of the story of a young, physically disabled boy, Jeremy, who accepted the challenge of his Teacher, along with all his classmates, to go outside and find something that signified Easter/Spring/new life and then to place it in a plastic Easter egg she gave to all the students.

Some kids brought a flower; others a caterpillar that would blossom into a butterfly; one even had some moss that signified growth. When the Teacher opened Jeremy’s egg it was
empty and all the kids laughed, thinking Jeremy didn’t understand the Teacher’s instructions. The Teacher didn’t want to embarrass Jeremy so went on to open the next egg however, Jeremy interjected and asked why the Teacher wasn’t
going to talk about his contribution. Flustered, the Teacher replied, ‘But Jeremy, your Easter egg is empty.’ He looked into her eyes and said softly, ‘Yes, but Jesus’ tomb was empty, too.’

“Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “‘From the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise’?” (Matthew 21 :1 6)

Happy Easter, Brett.

North Church Online Bulletin

Welcome

March 25th, 2018

It’s Friday, but Sunday’s coming!

Years ago, I recall being captivated by a message I heard Tony Campolo give that echoed a now famous Sermon first delivered by Pastor S. M. Lockridge.

These great Orators brilliantly and passionately contrasted the pain, tragedy and heartache of Good Friday with the deliverance, victory and joy of Easter Sunday; two days on the Christian calendar that could not be further apart emotionally yet are intrinsically intertwined.

Good Friday: God’s heartache – ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ (Matthew 27:46) and God’s great love – ‘For God so loved the world that he gave…’ (John 3:16)

Easter Sunday: God’s victory – ‘But take heart! I have overcome the world.’ (John 16:33) and God’s reconciliation – ‘I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends’ (John 15:15)

This world is a world of contrasts – ‘battles and blessings’. Whatever it is you may be facing today, may you also know … Sunday’s coming!

 God Bless, Brett

Welcome

March 18th, 2018

Connect Groups @ North

“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes  and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
Acts 2:46-47 (NIV)

We’ve had a great start for our Connect Groups in 2018. We have 9 groups meeting across the week with a wide diversity of people, places and times.

It’s hard to believe second term is almost here. With that in mind, now is a great time to join a Connect Group or start your own. Our goal is to have every adult member of North Church being a part of our vibrant caring Connect Groups Ministry. If you are interested in joining a group or starting a new group of your own, please talk to Pastor Rob.
