Living Springs Ministries programme of activities and updates
Christmas is a lovely and wonderful time for families. It's a time of great joy, happiness and celebration! Christmas affords families time to gather and enjoy each others company and also rest from work. However, in the age of secularisation and consumerism that we live in, the real meaning of Christmas seems to be lost to many and it has become mostly a commercial festivity, which presents so much stress and financial burden to many people.
Contrarily, Christmas is a time of real hope for man and a time for celebration of the generous gift of God to mankind - Jesus, the Saviour of the World. It is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, who came to save us from our sins, paving the way for us to restore our relationship with God, who is a loving Father. Christmas is the demonstration of God's overwhelming love for sinful mankind. The birth of Jesus is good news to all mankind and makes the following possible:
We invite you to join us in Our Christmas celebration activities
We are organising special Christmas Services suitable to all ages, knowledge and interests to explain and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas! Bring your family to experience these wonderful, fun and hope filled services and events.
1. Sunday, 15th December: Christmas, A Time of Forgiveness at 10.30am
The love God has for us made Him send His One and only Son Jesus Christ to show us the way back into a relationship with Him. Jesus came to pay for the penalty of the sins of all mankind. Through the personality and work of Jesus, we can have our sins and guilt removed. We will share why and how we can experience forgiveness from sin?
2. Sunday, 22nd December: Christmas, A Time of Reconciliation at 10.30am
We all need reconciliation in our relationships to feel happy, worthy and fulfilled in our lives. Sin (wrong doing) and guilt affect our inner peace and personal well being. God through Christ has bridged the gap created by man's selfish and self-centered decision to disobey God's law and do things our own way. We now can experience reconciliation and peace in our inner being and learn to live in harmony with others. We will learn how we can have peace and reconciliation in our lives and relationships.
We will also have a Christmas Party and share a meal together soon after the service.
3. Tuesday, 24th December Carols & Hot Mince Service at 7.30pm
Christmas is a time of great joy and good cheer! Join us in singing traditional Christmas Carols and share hot mince pies in an evening of good cheer and good wishes to all in our community. Come and exercise your voices in an atmosphere of good cheer!
4. Sunday, 29th December: Christmas, A Time of Peace at 10.30am
We all need peace to pursue our work and passions in life. We were made to progress and make a difference in life. It is only when we have peace within that we can live in peace with our neighbours. We will share what contributes to and how we can experience peace within?
We will end the year with a celebration and merry making event on 31st December dubbed "Hope for Tomorrow" starting from 8pm till midnight. It will be a time of praise, testimonies and and celebration of God's goodness in the year 2013! Come and join us give thanks and look forward to 2014 with great hope and optimism.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family! We appreciate your partnership.
