Swallow turns 44 years today - October 15, 2014.  Hallelujah!

I was baptised at Swallow in August 1974, met Brenda at Swallow in 1972, and we got married here in 1986. Our children were ‘born’, blessed, grew up, came to know Christ, were baptised and nurtured at Swallow. Jessica (our second girl) met her husband, Mark here and Loren (our first) her intended spouse, Ching. Our grandson was blessed here. My story is not unique but reflects the godly influence of Swallow on generations of families. We give God thanks for our godly heritage!

 

Last Sunday, in our first service, we expressed appreciation to our church staff for their service to our community of faith. In particular, we said thanks to our longest serving staff members, Paul Henry-18  years, Sharon Nash-17 years and Desmond Plunkett-16 years.

In our second service we celebrated the 20th anniversary of our school Liberty Academy at the Priory. We congratulate our school on this great milestone and say many thanks to all who have served the school over the years.

Our anniversary celebrations climax this weekend with our Swallowfield Transformational 5K Run/Walk (ST5K) on Saturday October 18th and our Anniversary services to be held on Sunday October 19th.

ST5K – Preparations & Thanks
There is a buzz of excitement in the air as preparations have stepped up to host our inaugural ST5K Run/Walk. This is to raise funds for our Transformational Oasis and therefore the date for registration has been extended to Thursday October 16thParticipants please remember to collect your bibs on Thursday or Friday at our Secretariat at number 9 between the hours of 9a.m. - 9p.m.

I wish to thank all who have contributed to this event and in particular those who have sponsored others. If you wish to contribute (locally and overseas) Click Here, or you may also make your contribution at the church office. 

Let’s be praying for good weather, overwhelming participation, financial blessings and a great time of fellowship.

 
 

Reflections

Last Sunday our message entitled “The Four Cardinal Points for Direction in the Last Days” was brought to us by Dr. Raphael Thomas, who gave us guidance from the book of Acts in preparation for living in the last days. Several signs are now pointing to the fact that the end is near such as pestilence, increased wickedness, earthquakes and wars. These are all signs of the last days.

Acts 1:1 -11 gives us Four Cardinal Points for Direction in the Last Days, namely:

  1. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
  2. The Ascension of Jesus Christ
  3. The Outpouring of the Spirit, and
  4. The Second Coming of Christ

"Las' Lick"

As I reflected on my Swallow journey, I was reminded of the words of the Apostle Paul to the Corinthian church which I wish to share with you as we face the days ahead:

“My dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

Grace and Peace,
David
