1) Preparation and Prayer

Good morning! 

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

Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free.
The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
The LORD is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.

Amen

(Psalm 118:5–9)

2) Announcements

  • THE WAY FORWARD
    • 1) Next week we will still have an English online service (As it is a long weekend and I’m away there won’t be an Afrikaans online service). We encourage you to “attend” this service with another person/couple/family.
    • 2) On October 4 we will have another drive-in communion service at the Brugmark parking lot.
    • 3) On October 11 we hope to start worship meetings at the hall again.  More detail about this closer to the time.
  • PLEASE NOTE: All duties at the worship service, except tea-serving, will also start at 11 October (Music teams, – if allowed by government, Door duty, Audio-Visual team, etc.). If you are involved with any of these ministries and you are NOT planning to start attending from October 11, please let me know so that we can make a plan with your duties.
  • God-willing this will be the plan going forward, but it will depend on various things, like government regulations and the COVID19 situation in Stilbaai.
  • BIRTHDAYS
    •  24th Kealla Pratt.
  • WEDDING ANNIVERSARIES
    • None
  • NEEDING HELP?  If you are struggling emotionally and spiritually and you are needing counseling, please contact Carel-J.

  • THE RETURN – SOUTH AFRICA 
    • On Saturday we invite you to join us at the church hall at 3pm – 4:30pm as we come together in humility and repentance to pray for revival. Please speak to Denise Sanders (082 588 8200) if you need any more information.

  • PLAN TO HELP THOSE WHO GET SICK WITH COVID-19. We want to help those who need to self-quarantine due to being sick with COVID-19 or who have been in contact with someone who tested positive. This involves two things:
    a) If you do get sick, please let us know. Let us know what type of help you need. E.g. help with buying your groceries, deliver meals, take you to the hospital if you have no transport, etc.
    b) We’ll need volunteers who will be able to help with the above (buying / making and delivering food). If you are able to assist in this way, please let Carel-J know.
  • BADISA FOOD PARCELS – Badisa knows of many vulnerable, poor families who are not able to provide for themselves during these times. They pack and deliver food parcels to these families. You can help by buying and placing non-perishable items in the containers provided at SPAR and OK.

5) Praise Singing

Let us fill our homes with praise singing to our almighty God!

6) Prayer

Spend time in prayer praying for the following:

  • PEOPLE ON THE BULLETIN to pray for: Yvonne Roth; Johannes and Charlotte Swart
  • HEALTH PROBLEMS Pray for people dealing with health issues: Martha, Godwin, Sue (Delene’s sister), Garness, Magriet, Lex, Gemma Sainsbury, Desiree ( Yvonne Roth’s daughter), John Malan (cancer), Lorna, Sharn, Gert and Lesley
  • Update from Amanda Horn about her dad:
    • The Dr says they can not know for sure until they get the results back (probably mon or tues) but he is 95% sure it is cancer from how it looks. From what he has seen it has gone through the colon lining and is affecting the lymph nodes but he can not be sure. He asked them to not waste time getting results but to rather start planning now that it is cancer. My parents will either come to Kansas for treatment or will stay in Kenya. In Kenya there is a good hospital and they have an amazing support system, and good Drs at a reasonable price. In Kansas they will have the best specialist, but at a huge price. They do not have as good of a support system here, but us girls will be here.
      My brother is currently in Kenya, the middle sister, Andrea, is in South Sudan and my youngest sister just moved 3 minutes away form us in Kansas, so she and I would be able to take care of them if they came here or Ben and Andrea could help if they decide to stay in Kenya.
  • Update from Yvonne Roth:
    • l have been down with a very painful knee and swollen legs for more than a week. Will be having another injection into the knee on Monday. Please pray for complete healing. So thankful that l have a wonderful neighbour who comes in to help. I praise our Father that 2 of my granddaughters have come to faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and were baptised. I thank our Father for the blessings and strength for each day and a loving and caring family.
  • Pray for those who lost their job / are not able to find work.
  • Pray for the 3 things we want to pray for every day
    1) Spiritual health. Pray for God to strengthen, encourage and grow his church. Pray for people to turn to God.
    2) Physical health Pray for God to have mercy on Stilbaai, SA, Africa and the world. For healing and protection from infection.
    3) Emotional health. Pray against anxiety, loneliness, fear and depression.
  • Prayer for today:
    • Pray for the churches in South Africa. Pray for Christ-centered, Bible-believing, Spirit-filled, Gospel Preaching churches to be established in every town of South Africa
