This Sunday we have the fourth and final instalment of our annual Prayer & Self-Denial series. This one’s coming from Duane Major, a pastor at South West Baptist Church (also known for helping New Zealand to buy a beach!). Duane’s been instrumental in SWBC’s move toward neighbourhood communities, so it will be hugely valuable for us to hear what he has to share as we likewise take that journey!

A reminder as this series comes to a close that Prayer & Self-Denial is accompanied by our intentional giving towards international mission. At the end of February, we all received silver bowls (like the one pictured) to be filling with our savings, so that we can give at the end. Well, now is the time to give—and give generously! The money raised goes toward Tranzsend (our NZ Baptist mission agency) and toward our own missionaries supported from PBC. Please make your donation via the normal giving means (see Welcome Desk for details), advising that it is for P&SD. Let’s show the world we care.

Ngā mihi nui,

Sarah & Elliot
