Praying for children @ risk: 24 – 30 June 2018.   We know that some of the children in NZ are missing out, and we have a billboard out front, to indicate our support for our children’s welfare.  We may not be able to do a lot, but prayer and action are ways that together we can change this situation.  You are encouraged to join others in praying for all children at risk.  
•    Pray that every NZ child feels safe and secure
•    Get to know the children and their families in your neighbourhood
•    Make your Church a safe and nurturing place for children
•    Read, sign and act on the Covenant for our Nation’s Children
•    Meditate on the promise in Galatians 4:5 – 7 and share God’s love with others

Bible Society presents… Bible Month – July
The Bible really is good for life!  It is good, not just for the tough times, but for all of life.  When we’re lonely, broken or disappointed, the Bible should be there.  And when we’re joyful, content and at peace, the Bible should also be there.  
But sometimes, the Bible is not easy to read and understand.  In fact, it can be quite a challenge.  Bible Society continues to create new resources to help people read and understand the Bible.  Their latest resource, is The Field Guide to the Bible.  Email orders@biblesociety.org.nz or ring 0800 424 253 for more details.
