Worship Service 12 April 2020

1) Preparation and Prayer

CHRIST IS RISEN!
HE IS RISEN INDEED!

Read the following Psalm as a prayer in preparing your heart for meeting with God.

Psalm 130:1–6 (ESV)
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD!
2 O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
3 If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?
4 But with You there is forgiveness, that You may be feared.
5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;
6 my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.

  • Church camp POSTPONED. We will reschedule once the COVID-19 pandemic is over
  • King’s Kids Week CANCELLED. It’s with great sadness that we have to cancel King’s Kids Week for this year. This is the time we need to get the team together to start training and preparation, which is not possible. It would also not be wise to bring a great crowd of children (many from other towns) together in 2 months time, considering what we’re learning from other countries on how long social distancing must be in place (There is also talk that the June/July holidays will be cancelled)
