Hello Everyone

 

This Sunday we enjoyed celebrating the dedication of Katy and Paul Auerswald’s son Joshua. It was wonderful to have so many visitors with us and to be able to celebrate with our CLC family in person and online. We are now looking forward to celebrating with two more families with Joshua Dobson and Finn Twist being dedicated on August 1st.

As we are still in the global pandemic, masks and hand sanitizers will still be available, the choice to wear masks will be at your discretion.  Our seating will be in rows with a little more space in between. We are so looking forward to seeing you all and to singing together freely again.

 

Children’s Church and Youth provision

 

Our full children’s and youth provision will start in September. For August we are aiming to offer a couple of sessions as our teams return to church.

 

Cafe provision

 

We will be taking our time with the re-opening of the cafe and be considering the local infection rates and how we can maintain some space whilst offering drinks after the service.

 

Abundant Blessings

 

Thankfulness is a practice that transforms our lives. We enter God’s gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. We enter the presence of God as we thank Him for all He has done for us and for who He is too us. Take a moment to reflect on all God has done, remember His goodness, reflect on His love, bask in His grace. We have so much to be thankful for, even in our darkest valleys we can remember the goodness of God poured out to us. Let us challenge ourselves to be thankful worshippers. Let us fast negativity and move to positive thanksgiving. Let us not be cynical or quick to moan and complain as the world is. Let us remember and give thanks for the new mercies of God every day. We have so much to be thankful for as Jesus came to give us thus life and give it to us in all it’s abundance.

 

you are abundantly blessed!

 

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

 

Love & Blessings
