James: where the rubber hits the road


James is an exceptionally practical book!  The author, Jesus’ brother James (who incidentally didn’t believe in Jesus until after the resurrection), unpacks what discipleship looks life.  The letter is about how to live what we believe.  In particular, the letter urges us as followers of Jesus not to compromise our faith by taking on attitudes or behaviours from the world around us.

James sounds a great warning to us about being "double-minded," failing to live our whole lives in the light of God's Word. It will be good for us to hear it together!


If you want to grow in your understanding of what it looks like to follow Jesus in the 21st Century, James is a great place to start!

The TMB Leadership Team met on Tuesday evening July 12 and were pleased to discuss, plan for and action a numbers of things. It was also great to welcome our Senior Pastor Clayton back to work! 
We have continued some planning around Bible Study Groups and we’d love to see more and more TMBers connected into small groups in coming months. We expect that there will be several new groups kicking off in the second half of 2016, so if you are interested to join a BSG please fill in a Communication Card or have a chat with one of us after the service today.
Since our meeting last week two people have been approached and asked to prayerfully consider joining the Leadership Team. Please be praying that God will raise up and equip leaders for TMB! We will be pleased to share with you more details of new additions to the team soon.
We also discussed and prayed for youth ministry and its vital role here at TMB. As a leadership team we are looking for ways to breathe new life and energy into the GiG Youth program that runs on Friday nights during school term. To this end we have decided to join together with the large youth group at our sister church Trinity Hills, at Aldgate, for terms three and four this year. We 
hope this will invigorate growth and refresh the GiG ministry, bringing new energy that can be used to kick things off back in Mount Barker in 2017. Please keep GiG in your prayers!
Our church finances continue to be a significant agenda item and the challenges of our considerable budget deficit keep us concerned and prayerful. This week we employed the help of a trusted commercial real estate agent to assist us in the leasing process that will allow us to exit the office space at 9 Hampden Road. We trust that this step will alleviate the financial pressure and allow us to focus on other areas of church life and ministry. Please join us in praying that God would provide clarity and direction as we go.
In Christ,
Nathan Watts, Matt Kerrison & Katy Walker
