PRAYER AND PRAISE

Please pray that the Kindergarten operating in our facility would truly be a light to the community, and would be used by God to draw many people into His Kingdom.

Please pray that the Lord would heal Sharilyn Mordaunt's dad (Harry) from his cancer, and for the Mordaunt family as they are apart until late March

Please pray for the leadership and ministry teams in our church as they seek to help people, young and old, move from brokenness to wholeness in Christ through prayer, Sunday School, choir, dance, and worship.

Please pray for all of the new, and new-ish parents in our church family as they navigate the many challenges that a baby brings.

NEWS

A very merry Christmas!

Through your very generous gifts given this past Christmas, WHAC has purchased 10 Bibles, 5 Chickens, 2 sheep, 4 bee hives, and 1 calf to send to needy families overseas as an expression of the love of Christ. It's not very often that you get to buys someone a calf for Christmas(!), thank you for contributing!

The Engine Room This year, the Lord has been stirring the hearts of a number of people at WHAC around prayer, and as a result, focus, and excitement, and anticipation are all developing. A prayer team is also being formed, while our prayer nights have been moved to Wednesday nights at 7:30. For more information, please see Phil Ruston.

Table for 6 Facebook is great. Gmail? I love it! But nothing compares with sitting down for a meal with friends and family from church. Table for 6 is a new initiative at WHAC to see that happen. Would you like to host a meal - while not preparing all the food? Please see Sally Skellon or Esther McKean.

Can't help but sing? The church choir is always looking for new singers. Maybe you should be one of them! Practices Sunday following the service.

Sunday, 3rd of March As the Elders Board seeks to lead us further into fellowship and community, for one special Sunday, we will be moving from rows to circles and tables in a service that features worship, discussion and teaching. The topic to be addressed that weekend has yet to be decided, and suggestions are welcome.

A Financial Update

Thanks for your generosity in giving, this last term saw us give to the Lord 98% of our budgeted giving to the Lord. Praise the Lord and good for you! This small shortfall, combined with our deficit budget means that we had to dip into our savings for $5,091 so far this financial year, but we are confident that as we continue to worship the Lord in our giving, and follow His plan for our lives and our church, He will supply all of our needs.

You're Invited! After church on the 3rd of March, some families from WHAC will be going up to Browns Bay to spend the afternoon at the beach, and YOU are more than

welcome to come along. Meet by the playground at 2:30,

and

and be sure to bring some nibbles, cricket bats sun block!

The Kindy Korner

The church Kindy is off to a flying start, and would love to have the following good donated:

Yogurt pots Ice Cream containers Butter/margarine containers Plastic bags Non-perishable food to give to needy families Any help is greatly appreciated!

===========================================

Colossians 1:15-20

15 Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, [e] 16 for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. 17 He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. 18 Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. [f] So he is first in everything. 19 For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, 20 and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
