For Sunday the 6th of May - 9:00am

Just before he died, Jesus told his disciples: ‘I give you a new commandment, that you love one another’. He went on to say, ‘By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another’.

This Sunday, as we listen to these words of Jesus, we will be thinking through the way he gives us strength to live in community. Jesus doesn’t simply give us a command that we must obey by our own strength. Instead he calls each one of us to follow him, and he fills us with God’s love by the care and service that he gives us. It’s because Jesus is with us that we are able to love one another, and to show all people that we are disciples of the Lord.

This Sunday we will be meeting at 9:00am to receive Jesus’ gracious presence in the Word of God and in the Lord’s Supper. Our Sunday school will be meeting at about 9:45am.

God’s peace,

Fraser Pearce, Pastor
