1) Preparation and Prayer

Good morning! 

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

O LORD, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.


Psalm 131:1–2 (ESV)

2) Announcements

  • We’re having ANOTHER baptismal service today after the morning service. 🙂

  •  COVID-19 update:

    • just a request for prayer and precaution. The COVID-19 numbers in the Garden Route are rising drastically. I received a message from one of the doctors at the George provincial hospital that they are currently at maximum oxygen usage. There is no more space for anyone to be put onto oxygen. And yet the number and rate of patients are increasing

      So two requests:
      1) PRAY
      2) Please minimise your risks of being infected and infecting others

      Remember, the crisis of a pandemic is not measured by what percentage of the population gets sick, but whether the medical systems can cope with the number of people who are sick. And we are beyond crisis mode now. Be safe. Be praying. Be trusting.

    • 5th Cornelia Schoombie
    • 1st Carel-J and Renee Rischmuller
  • NEEDING HELP?  If you are struggling emotionally and spiritually and you are needing counseling, please contact Carel-J.
    If you have any physical needs, please contact Carel-J or one of the elders.
  • King’s Kids Online! If you have primary school children visiting you for December, it might be a good idea to have the King’s Kids video ready for them to watch.
    • Please let Carel-J know if you want a DVD. The DVDs are free, but if you’d like to contribute to the cost, you can just add your donation in with your offering.
  • 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
