Happy Sabbath Church Family
The Lillo’s enjoyed the Dawn Service from our driveway. On our street, three families payed their respects to our fallen ANZAC’s, on their driveways this morning.
Today, we’re also celebrating Communion during church. If you don’t have communion bread or grape juice please let me know ASAP. I’ll spend the morning delivering Communion bread made by Michelle Walsh. I’m off to Beecroft soon to pick it up and will deliver to whoever needs some.
Pastor Nick Kross will be leading our Communion Service. Damian Hinze will be playing the Last Post, before we have a minutes silence at 11:00am.
Our Broadcast starts at 10:45am on: castlehillsda.online.church
Prayer by Randy Maxwell: If my people
“Lord, I’m tired of playing this game I call church—of pretending to believe while being eaten up with doubt. I’m wary of pious words, proof texts, petty theological debates, and the form of Godliness without the power.
I want the real thing, Lord. I want you. I dare to make the same requests Moses made when He asked You to show him Your glory, I must
see You for who You really are. Why should I settle for shadows when You’ve promised to share Your very being with me?
Thank you for calling me to prayer. I confess I don’t know how to pray, how to really touch Your heart and enter into the joy of Your fellowship, but I want to.
As You did to Peter that night on the lake, beckon me to come to You, and I will. Only teach me to keep my eyes on You as I take the first halting, trembling steps.
I must lay hold of you, Lord. And if I am to live or ever hope to know the abundant life You came to give me, You must lay hold of me.
Here I am. I come with all my liabilities and fears, but I come. And as I come, Lord, please make my life a miracle of Your love and grace. Amen.
Offering: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church
In preparation for our time in giving back to God tokay—I invite you to process the following. I invite you to open your Bible to Malachi 3:10.
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.”
In this passage, the Lord presents us with a challenge. He says to bring our tithes to His house and present them before Him, but what follows is a challenge!
He says, “TRY ME NOW IN THIS…If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.”
God is asking us to have faith in his Word. He says to “try me”, and see what I can do with your gift. It’s God’s desire to not only bless us but to bless us past the point of having room enough to receive it!
How do we access this blessing? By faith. By believing that He can, and will, do what he says in His word. If we choose to obey and to trust in His word and accept his challenge, He will prove His word faithfully every time.
Prayer: “Father, today I bring my tithe and my gift into your storehouse. I believe in your Word where it says that you will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing. I stand on it, I have faith in it, and I act on my faith today!”
eGiving is available for giving of tithes and offerings. You can go to egiving.org.au/castlehill
Also, Richard Hurrell will be at our church every Monday from 2:00pm to 4:00pm to receive tithes and offerings. Also, if you're able to help with financial support, please let Richard know, or contact Pastor Pablo Lillo.
April 25: Communion Service
Pastor Nicholas Kross "The Giving of Life"
This Sabbath, April 25, we'll be doing something we've never contemplated. The experience of participating in Communion from home. Communion will be part of our Broadcast Service starting at 10:45am on castlehillsda.online.church
The elements of bread and grape juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation, rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of Jesus for us.
Join us online to remember Jesus GREAT sacrifice. Listed below are details for you to prepare for April 25:
HOW TO TAKE COMMUNION ONLINE
1. Purchase Grape Juice
2. Purchase Unleavened Bread / Lebanese Bread
- Unleavened bread is the best expersion of the "bread" element. Unleavened bread simply is bread baked without a rising agent (most large grocery stores stock unleavened bread).
3. Be Ready at Home with Your Elements
- Pastor Nick will direct you through properly receiving communion. All you need to do is follow along online from 10:45am on castlehillsda.online.church
4. Prepare a bucket of water and towels
5. Share With Us
- After receiving communion online, please give us feedback as to how you participated in the Communion Service.
