1) Preparation and Prayer
Read the following Psalm as a prayer in preparing your heart for meeting with God.Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody!
With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who dwell in it!
Let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together
before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.
Psalm 98:4–9 (ESV)
- THE WAY FORWARD
- Next week 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.

- BIBLE STUDIES:
- No Wednesday or Teen Bible studies for the next 2 weeks while Carel-J is on leave and on a Biblical counseling seminar.
- 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.
- Some photos of families doing online church together. 🙂
