Wating, Wating, Waiting!
How do we wait for Jesus' return?
Why is it taking such a long time to come?
What should I be doing while I wait?
And hasn't science disproved the idea that God will ever intervene in the world?
Join us this Sunday as we look at the final chapter of 2 Peter together where the Apostle Peter answers some of our questions about waiting for Jesus to return.
If you've missed either of the previous Sundays, listen to the talks on chapter 1 and chapter 2 before you come! You can listen to the talks online, or download them in our resources library.
See you Sunday, 10 AM at Cornerstone College!
Don't forget that Daylight Saving Time starts this Sunday!
Put your clocks forward one hour before you go to bed Saturday night, so that you can make it to church on time!
We look forward to seeing you at Cornerstone College at 10 AM!
School holidays are upon us!
We're gathering to pray on Wednesday September 12, 8 - 9:15 PM at Cornerstone College
While we pray in all sorts of ways and on all manner of occasions, it is especially good to join together in prayer. Gathering as a church to pray gives us an opportunity as a family to bring our concerns to God, and to join with each other in thanking God for his goodness to us! Of course, lots of Christians also find it really encouraging to listen to others pray, and to learn from the prayers of other believers.
This Prayer Gathering will be hosted and led by our Wednesday Evening Expats Bible Study Group.
And you can be part of it!
Please join us Wednesday September 12, at 8 PM, in Paideia at Cornerstone College, where we meet on Sundays. There will be no evening TMB Bible Studies this week. All groups will be joining in the Prayer Gathering.You'll be able to pray for a range of areas in our church life and beyond, sing some songs, enjoy quietness for reflection and prayer, and be encouraged through the prayers of others. You can pray out loud, or not. And if you come 15 minutes early, at 7:45, coffee will be served!
If you've wanted to remind someone of what's important, one last time ...
Or if you've wondered what's true and what's not when it comes to Jesus ...
Or maybe it feels like it's taking a long time for Jesus to return ...
Then 2 Peter is for you!
Our new teaching series, "A Certain Faith" taking in the second letter written by the Apostle Peter will begin on Sunday 30 September. Bible Study Groups will begin in 2 Peter during the week prior.
2 Peter is a letter in which the Apostle gives a final reminder to his readers of the faith that has been passed down to them. He is conscious that his own life is drawing to an end and he wants his friends to continue to grow in faith and maturity after he has left them. Peter knows that they will be living out their faith in an environment in which false messages about Jesus will spring up, and he is eager for them to be able discern the truth from error, and cling to what is true. And Peter knows that even though believers are still waiting for Jesus' return, it is sure and guaranteed, and those who belong to Jesus must be ready and about their master's work.
So it's easy to see what application 2 Peter might have for us!
You can download the study guide for 2 Peter here, and please join us on Sundays at 10 AM, from 30 September.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

Can you be both alive and dead at the same time?
