NEW CREATION NEWS – OCTOBER 2016
Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord! (Psalm 150, verse 6)
Praise the Lord! Another year, another milestone, another birthday to celebrate, another opportunity to thank our wonderful Lord God! It’s October again so please pray for New Creation on our 28th Birthday (on the 4th) and give grateful thanks to our loving Heavenly Father. He has enabled and encouraged us since 1988! Only the Lord knows what effect a scripture verse, a book or a card may have on the receiver. We pray that the vision for this mission, given so many years ago, is still being worked out to His glory and that He will continue to guide us as we seek to faithfully serve Him.
Our Christmas stock is coming in. Every year Val (our shop manager) tries to provide the widest variety of cards, books and gifts as she possibly can. Please come in, browse, and choose your Christmas Greetings. All our Christmas cards, calendars, diaries, books and gifts display the Christian message – lasting longer than the festive season – making it easy to share your faith. And you also may be helping other Charities, for she has ordered from Tear Fund, the Barnabus Fund, and other similar relief organisations. This may be your opportunity to make sure the Good News of Jesus is not packed away like a decoration but will last the whole year.
Have you thought about bringing your small group here for supper? New Creation is always available as a Supper Venue for groups of up to 14. Who knows, a change of surroundings may be a source of inspiration to your group. In years gone by the coffee house was a place to discuss and share – maybe we could be that place for you. So do get in touch on 01884 255769 as we are now taking bookings for your Christmas or New Year Celebration.
