What’s On

 

We’d love you to join us at Coorparoo this Sunday as we begin the new 2PeterPromo_everythingforlifegodlinessyear with a new series through the New Testament letter of 2 Peter: Everything for Life & Godliness.

 

This week we open up chapter 1 where Peter urges the early Christians to continue in godliness, to continue living godly lives.

 

Having already been chosen & saved by God, Peter tells Christians to turn away from sinfulness & false teaching, & to put into practice what they’ve already been taught about living as God’s people – a message that all believers need to continually hear.

 

Join us, 9am this Sunday

As with every year, CPC gets a bit crazy over the holiday period & so our service times tend to change slightly to accommodate for the Christmas & holiday season. Below are the service times for both December & January.

This Sunday will be our 5th last week in John’s Gospel, so come join us as we start looking together at Jesus final few hours.

This week in John chapter 16 Jesus is urging his disciples to keep their trust in him when everything around them is crumbling, during times of persecution when the temptation to compromise would be luring.

Jesus explains why they need to keep trusting – he’s about to leave them, & they will soon face sorrow, persecution & rejection

But Jesus also tells them how they keep their trust in him, how they keep from falling away from faith in him – knowing that suffering is only temporary, seeing that Jesus resurrection brings hope & assurance, seeing that everything Jesus has been saying is coming true, & biggest way of all…knowing that Jesus has overcome the world!

Join us Sunday as we talk about trusting in Jesus, a very relevant message for today.

8:30am & 10am

A great morning, our last Women’s Breakfast for 2014.

40 women of all ages enjoyed a fantastic breakfast & took some time out to think about what the countdown the Christmas should be about.

Join us in 2015 when our Women’s Ministry events start up again.

This Sunday we edge closer to the end of our John series; True Life in Jesus.

This week as we open up chapter 15 Jesus points us to the need to stay bound to him in faith and to express our new life in him through our love for others. 

Come and join us this Sunday, 8:30am or 10am, as we hear of the Vine & the Branches.

Tomorrow @ Coorparoo we open up John chapter 13 together. This chapter is all about washing feet, Jesus washing his disciples feet to be exact.

As Jesus crouches at the disciples dirty feet, giving up his role as the teacher to become the household servant, we’re shown a very physical & confronting demonstration of the sacrificial, humble love of Jesus, a real love that must be imitated by all those who belong to him.

But as we sit in contemplation of what this means for us, we’re also reminded that this is also, & simultaneously, a symbolic demonstration pointing us to the sacrificial love of Jesus at the Cross, a perfect love that must underpin & motivate everything we do in our love for one another – to love as Jesus has loved us.

Join us tomorrow, we’d love you to be there,
8:30am or 10am

This Sunday we open up John’s Gospel and read through the last half of the book as John takes us to see the Cross we Jesus gave his life in humble sacrifice.

This week is about “Our Desires & God’s Glory”, where we’ll be looking at the prayer of Mary & Martha to Jesus in raising Lazarus.

Why did they ask? What did they expect? Come & see how Jesus answered their questions & ultimately answered their prayer in talking about eternal life.

join us, 8:30am or 10am.

This Sunday we conclude our series through Galatians; A Call to Freedom.

Wow, what a book. Paul’s letter to the early church in Galatia has taught us of Jesus once for all sacrifice for sin, that he alone presents us right, justified, & holy before our great gracious God as son’s & daughters, & as heirs to the Kingdom of God.

Galatians has taught & reminded us again of the freedom we have in Christ, a freedom that must be lived out as followers of Jesus, living for our God in every part of our lives.

Paul’s words have also come as a warning to us, to beware of falling into thinking that our freedom is for us to exploit, that Jesus death & resurrection only accomplished part of our justification & it’s up to us to fill in the rest.

The message of Galatians as we’ve looked at it over these last 6 weeks has been that the Gospel + Anything = no Gospel at all. Jesus won it all, his blood washes us clean & declares us right before God, & calls us free to live for him.

Join us this Sunday as we finish our Galatians series with Chapter 6; A New Creation.
8:30am or 10am

This Sunday we open up Galatians chapter 3 in looking at Paul’s arguments to the early church for why the Christians in Galatia should not desert the Gospel for cultural acceptance.

As we look through Paul’s challenge to the Galatians we see him raise 3 aspects to remember in keeping the Gospel as central; the Galatians personal experience & Abraham’s experience, understanding the proper place of the law, and knowing that we as believers have been saved for sonship.

join us as we work through this great letter together,
