This Sunday, with only 3 chapter of Mark left to go, we’re opening up Mark 14 to see Mary & Judas.
We’re talking about 2nd Hand Devotion, & we’ll be seeing how Mark 14 calls us to consider our attitude towards Jesus, especially in light of him being the Messiah.
Mary demonstrates the right attitude: absolute devotion, where Jesus is First, & where she is humbled before him, which Mark compares to that of Judas’ attitude of “self gain”, the disciples’ attitude of “self first”, & lastly the religious leaders attitude of pride.
join us as we work through these last few chapters together,
8:30am or 10am
We had a great opportunity this week to head into Coorparoo Secondary College to play some games with the kids during the lunch break. We’re hoping to make it a regular weekly activity, in the hope that we can build some solid relationships with Coorparoo families.
This Sunday as we continue our series through Mark’s Gospel, we open up Chapter 6 & witness Jesus Kingship as he demonstrates his power over creation.
Seeing Jesus come as the promised Messiah is a reality that demands a response – come & see how those witnessing Jesus here in Chapter 6 responded.
join us, 8:30am & 10am
This Sunday our new sermon series on Mark’s Gospel continues, where this week we’ll be opening up chapters 2 & 3 to see “A Gospel of Change”.
Here in Mark 2 & 3, Jesus, as the Messiah, challenges the religious attitudes of the people in showing that he brings about a new way to God, not one built upon man’s perfect obedience to God’s law, but one built on faith in Jesus as the Messiah
In establishing his Lordship & authority, Jesus brings about a new attitude, a new way to God, through faith in him & in following him wholeheartedly.
join us this week,
8:30am & 10am
This Sunday its all about “the Gospel Has Come”, as we launch into our new sermon series through Marks Gospel: Hear the Good News.
This week we kick off by opening up Mark chapters 1 & 2, to see Jesus coming as the long promised Messiah, which is the Gospel, or the Good News, of God for salvation. Jesus comes with authority, with healing & restoration, & with the forgiveness of sins as the breathtaking Son of God.
The Good News is Jesus – & what amazing news it is!
join us this week as we look at the book of Mark, to see & hear the Good News of Jesus Christ – the Messiah.
Sunday, 8:30am & 10am
This Sunday we come to the end of our Bible in 10 sermon series, capping off the whole story of the Bible with “Citizens of Heaven”.
Having seen the great salvation on offer through Jesus Christ death & resurrection, we’re looking this Sunday at how those who have come to trust & believe in Jesus are now citizens of Heaven, & how our citizenship should determine how we live in this world.
join us for the conclusion to the Bible in 10,
8:30am & 10am
After celebrating Good Friday, join us on Easter Sunday as we praise Jesus as our Risen Lord, Saviour, & King! & look to the new life that is found in him.
Sunday we’re meeting @ 8:30am & 10am to see that just as Jesus death brought forgiveness & redemption, Jesus resurrection brings new life in unity with God.
But Jesus doesn’t bring new life simply because he rose from the dead, but having died bearing the sin of the world Jesus is resurrected with full authority over sin & death & all creation, where Jesus as Saviour & King gives life through the Holy Spirit to those who believe.
Join us this weekend,
Join us after the service on Good Friday as we continue to celebrate Jesus death over a pancake morning tea & coffee.
During morning tea our Kids will go in search of a single special chocolate to help remember God’s amazing special gift of Jesus who was graciously given to us as a sacrifice in our place for our sin & rejection of God. On Friday that single chocolate will be gone, but Sunday is coming….
Jesus is ALIVE! After enjoying a single special chocolate on Friday to remember the very special gift of Jesus, after the 10am service on Easter Sunday the Kids will go in search of “treasure boxes” to find an “abundance” of easter eggs, to remind them of the great & abundant treasures Jesus brings when he makes us right with God. God gives us life abundantly through Jesus, more than we can ever imagine. Because of Jesus we can have real life in saving relationship with God.
This would be a great opportunity to invite family & friends with kids, for them to come & enjoy some fun on the Easter weekend as we point people to Jesus, to trust in Jesus Christ, the one true & only Saviour of the world.
This Friday we celebrate the sacrifice & majesty of our Lord Jesus Christ, as he so humbly yet so powerfully walks the hill to the Cross.
On Good Friday we’re meeting @ 8:30am to see that the death of Jesus, God’s promised King, brings about what man could never achieve: complete & perfect peace with God.
God’s King was meant to die – Jesus was born to give his life away because Jesus came as the Saviour of the world to willingly give up his life, to be punished for our rebellion against God.
We’re continuing our Bible in 10 series, & this Friday we’re looking at the “King Killed”
we’d love you to join us,
This Sunday, we “Behold the King”
With Jesus, the long promised King, finally arriving we now look to see how the people respond to him.
Will they follow this new King? or will they remain hardened to Jesus ministry in their hearts?
come join us as we look together in the lead up to Easter,
8:30am & 10am
Today we saw Jesus the coming eternal King,
“the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned. From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” Matthew 4:16-17
Having spent 6 weeks tracking across the Old Testament, we finally arrived at all the Old Testament had been pointing us to..the coming King; to bring in God’s Kingdom, to unharden sinners hearts, to be the King that has been longed for, a king to save man from their sin & make them right before God
join us this Sunday as we continue to look at Jesus as we “Behold our King”
8:30am & 10am
This Sunday @ CPC we’ve reached week 7 of our Bible in 10 series, & this week we’re looking at the “Coming King”
Jesus coming meant that God’s everlasting Kingdom was finally at hand, God’s everlasting King was here…
“And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.” And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:17-21 ESV
come join us as we see the King come,
8:30am & 10am
Help us love our community, let’s help you love yours.
Everyone’s welcome, so feel free to share this with anyone you know who’d love to come, maybe you know someone new to Coorparoo or to South Brisbane, we’d love to welcome them.
Over the next week why not start reading Mark 1:1 – 2:17, even better idea, why not ask that friend who doesn’t know Jesus to read it with you over a coffee or lunch.
Feel free to comment here with how your Bible reading is going, we’d love to hear about it.
