No Child Left Behind

Date 25th July 2017  by John Van Dijk - Elder  Bible passage Mark 10:13-16

Today we pick up the series on Mark again. In today’s passage, Jesus has just finished teaching about the very serious matter of marriage and divorce.

God’s Glory – Our Joy – NO SERMON

Date 17th July 2017  by KJ Tromp - Pastor for Nerang Community Church  Bible passage Romans 5:1-11

Often we hear people finish prayers with the words “for the glory of God” or “so that You may get the glory, God”. And everyone says a “hearty amen” to that. Why do we do that? Why has it evoked positive emotions in us or in Christians from the past ages, to be motivated by

Kept #2

Date 04th July 2017  by Ben Peletier  Bible passage Jude 24-25

These last two verses of Jude are easily the most well know from the book. It’s aclassic song and a popular closing verse but do you understand it within its context? Jude, a book we have worked through in the evenings, it isone that presents us with along list of challenges. It was a church

Kept #1

Date 04th July 2017  by Ben Peletier  Bible passage Jude 1:17-23

The book of Jude is a dark and confronting one. We have trudged through Jude verses 5- 16 seeing a church that was being pulled apart at the seams. While it might not feel like we face the same issues from within the church, in many ways our world offers us the very same temptations.

Mark: Jesus’ Teaching on Divorce

Date 04th July 2017  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Mark 9:42-50
