|| MAKING SENSE OF LIFE ||

2020 has been crazy - it began with the bushfires, then came COVID, and now there has been social unrest across the globe.

This has left many of us asking big questions...what is life all about? is anyone in control? where can we find peace in the midst of the chaos?

It is our belief that answers to these big questions are found in the person of Jesus. This is why we run Explaining Christianity Online. We'd love you to join us.

|| YES TO JESUS ||

It has been a crazy few months. But our mission remains the same. We want to know Jesus and make him known.

And we are super excited, because over the past couple of months we've had a number of people put their trust in Jesus.

But we wanna see more and more people coming to know the great love that God has for them. This is why we are running a new EC Online course starting in July.

Your Will be Done (Acoustic)

|| YOUR WILL BE DONE ||

Here’s a fitting prayer for us to be praying (and singing) in response to this mornings sermon.

β€œYour will be done, my God and Father
As in heaven, so on earth
My heart is drawn to self-exalting
Help me seek Your kingdom first
As Jesus walked, so I shall walk
Held by Your same unchanging love
Be still my soul, O lift your voice and pray:
β€˜Father, not my will but Yours be done.’

Sunday's online services might make it look like we get it right every time, but that's only because Caleb and Peter do such a great job at cutting and editing out all of our mistakes!

So, to keep us humble and honest while having a laugh, here's just a few of the many bloopers caught on camera over the past few months as we've all had to adapt quickly to speaking to a camera!

Re-Thinking God | Where is God in a time of Crisis? | Sunday 7 June

After you've watched the talk, we'd love you to join us for a fb live Q&A at 11am on Sunday. Bring along your questions as we further explore this topic together!

|| WHO HAVE YOU INVITED? ||

Thanks for joining us at our online gathering over the weekend! What a joy to know that because the Gospel is both God's work and God's wisdom, it has the power to unite us as followers of Jesus!

Here's a quote from Matt Papa as we head into the week...
"Our souls attention is like one thousand labourers that need a task, and the task we were made for is to mine the infinite depths of God, to scale the mountain of His holiness and sing for joy upon every peak."

Our sermon for this Sunday is now live on our youtube page!

"God could have sent a Jesus that looked like superman or Albert Einstein, but he sent a Jesus who was born in a stable and died on a cross. And his purpose was to confound the wisdom of the world, so that together we would be humbled at the foot of the cross."

We'd love to have you gather around the Word with us this weekend! Check it out below:

|| GRACE IN THE MESS ||

As we dove into 1 Corinthians over the weekend, we were confronted with a messy church filled with problems and divisions.

Wasn't it wonderful to see that Paul, to begin His letter to the Corinthians, focused not on the weaknesses within the church, but on the faithfulness of God to His church!

God is the one who calls, resources, and keeps His church >>> and this gives us purpose, responsibility, and security in Him! πŸ™Œ

|| NEW SERIES THIS WEEK ||

"To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his holy people, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ..." - 1 Corinthians 1:2

+

This Sunday we'll be kicking off our new sermon series in the book 1 Corinthians >>> "Messy Church: called to be God's holy people".

+

The church in Corinth was a church that had many issues. In his letter to them in 1 Corinthians, Paul sought to bring this messy church back to the transforming power of the Gospel, and to the difference that this good news should make in our calling to be God's holy people!

|| MERCY FUND ||

"And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them." - Acts 4:33b-34a

The elders are so thankful for the way you have continued to generously support the finances of the church, so that our gospel ministry could continue!

In our current season, we're also aware that many in our church family are experiencing financial hardship, and it's for this reason the elders have decided to setup a Mercy Fund.

For those who are able, we’d encourage you to prayerfully consider giving to this fund, as a way of increasing our capacity as a church to practically show one another the love of Christ!

Your Will be Done (Acoustic)

|| YOUR WILL BE DONE ||

Here's a great new song by CityAlight that will help us fix our eyes on Jesus and trust in Him during times of trial and uncertainty!

"As we go forth, our God and Father
Lead us daily in the fight
That all the world might see Your glory
And Your Name be lifted high
And in this Name we overcome
For You shall see us safely home
Now as your church, we lift our voice and pray:
β€˜Father, not my will but Yours be done!’"
