NEW CREATION NEWS – February 2017
“The Word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword……”
(Hebrews Ch 4 v 12)
Question? How many lives have been changed, we wonder, by the many Bibles, cards, gifts, CDs, books and other articles that have been given or sent over the Christmas period? Answer! We don’t know but we pray that everyone who has received something containing scripture will have been touched by it. As you know, with our Lord’s leading, we are here to send the wonderful Gospel message out to as many people as possible in as many ways as possible. Thank you for coming in to the shop and being part of that challenge and responding to it.
Please do keep coming in. We hope you see New Creation as worthwhile and an important addition to the work of the local churches. We need your support more than ever. The use of the internet may be easy but it takes the trade away from local shops and they close down. If New Creation is to continue here in Tiverton, providing a counselling and prayer room, a resource centre for local Christians, and a place of refreshment for body, mind and spirit it needs all the local Christians to make it their own and use it on a regular basis. We are told at the end of Matthew’s Gospel to go out and make disciples – New Creation has the resources to help you do just that!
Penny often has special offers in the café: for February it’s a lunchtime soup and roll for £3.00
Penny works very hard to produce tasty lunches and tea-time treats but she really needs more volunteers to help her. It would be wonderful to have more people on our rota who would be willing to help on a one-day-a-week basis and also be able to take over if she was ill or on holiday. Our volunteers are very precious to us and we really value them. They also see it as their way of serving the Lord. Maybe this could be your opportunity as well?
