NEW CREATION NEWS – FEBRUARY 2018
By serving you we are serving Him
“The Word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword…”
(Hebrews Ch. 4 v 12)
The Scriptures have gone out from New Creation in many ways over the past few months and we pray they will bear much fruit. A big ‘Thank You’ to all those who came in and bought their Christmas cards and presents etc. from us. We are so pleased to tell you that our Lord answered your and our prayers. Thank you so much for your support over that pre-Christmas period. Rikky reports that, with some more welcome donations, our trading figures show a small profit. Please join with us to praise and thank the Lord!
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 continue to need your support. The use of the internet may be easy but it takes the trade away from local shops and sadly they close down. If New Creation is to continue here in Tiverton, providing 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! ‘God is Good’ and we pray that He will keep us here to honour Him and serve you for a long time yet. Thank you everyone who supports us in each and every way. God bless you.
February sees the start of Fairtrade Fortnight which this year runs from 26thFebruary to the 11th March. It is estimated that small farmers grow about 70% of the world’s food yet only receive an average of 3% of the retail price once their products reach the supermarket shelves. (See the Fairtrade website.) We stock many Traidcraft (Fairtrade) products, and use the foods in the coffee shop, so please help these farmers and producers by buying them here. And why not order your REAL EASTER EGGS!!! The original design, with a little booklet about Easter, still at £3.99! Other designs are available (see meaningfulchocolate.co.uk). The farmers will thank you and so will we for helping us to support them.
February also brings St.Valentine’s Day. Penny’s Special this month is a bowl of soup and a roll for £3.00, so why not bring your Valentine in to enjoy one with you?
Future dates: Lent starts on February 14th
Mothering Sunday 11th March
Good Friday March 30th
Easter Sunday April 1st May we help you with resources?
