Guests included the Mayor of Armadale Lynton Reynolds, Professor Bruce Robinson, community leaders, business men and women and pastors from the various churches in the Armadale City region. Jim Bosma, secretary of the Ministers association was MC for the morning.

Mayor Lynton Reynolds spoke of the City councils work in the community, particulary focusing on the fact that people make the community, not just a set of buildings and infrastructure.

Professor Robinson, spoke on how best to be fathers in our families and how this expands in our community in the way our children grow up. Particularly using examples from his recent publications. www.brucerobinson.com.au

Time was also spent in praying for specific areas of the community, including, families, schools, council, emergency services and other areas.

The time was also a great way to network with other people in our community.

Happenings at WPC Kelmscott for May and June

It's been a while since I have posted anything on this site. This is due to having holidays and recently moving into a new home. We thank God for His provision and timing of this, we are truly blessed.

Life in the church here has continued, I am continuing in a series on the Book of Isaiah and this Sunday will be looking at the promises that God gives to all those that are His, from chapter 43.

We have also been blessed to hear some of the work of the Missions that we support.
Johanna Sanders from the Mustard Seed Orphanage in Burma spoke to us on the work of the orphanage, including many needs that we take for granted here in Australia, such as healthcare, housing, electricity, and food.

Last Sunday night we had Chris Summerfield from Drug Arm Western Australia speak to us on the issues of drug addiction and how their organization helps people get thier lives back under control.

Revelation: Bible Study.

Our midweek evening Bible study groups have this semester been going through the book of Revelation. Currently we are up to chapter 15 and 16. One of the key issues is to make the Scriptures relevant for today, and even in these chapters we see again our great God is a God who will pay back those who are against Him. Time and again we see the hand of grace given to all, and yet sinful man continually shakes his fist at God and curses Him rather than taking the warning that God will pay back for all evil done. Let us all be ready for the Day of Judgment comes like a thief in the night.
As we read in 1 Thessalonians 5 we have to be "self controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmut. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Niv) . Praise God that He has done this through His Son. Victory is accomplished in Christ.

Our Bible Study groups meet Tuesday and Wednesday evenings alternately every 2 weeks at 2 different venues.

Sunday 19th April

On Sunday morning a great time of coming together as God's people was had as we praised God in worship. A challenging message on Acts 21:10-14 by Ray, raised issues for us such as;
* How does God speak to us?
* What does prophecy look like?
* Should we expect prophets like Agabus today?

Ray answered this by taking us on a journey through the Bible with some further questions and answers;

1. What marks out a prophet?
1.1 Whatever he prophesies must come true all the time or he must be put to death.
See Deuteronomy 18:20-22
1.2 A prophet who speaks inconsistently with God’s existing word must be put to death.
See Deut 13:1-5
1.3 Prophecy is direct revelation from God.
See Exodus 4:14-16; 7:1
2. What message will a prophet give?
See 1Peter 1:10-12; Rom 16:25,26; Ephesians 3:3-6
3. Were there different ‘classes’ of prophets? Were some less authoritative than others?
See Acts 11:27-28; 21:10-14; 21:27-35; 28:17
4. What was the setting of New Testament prophets?
5. How should we expect God to speak to us?
See 2Timothy 3:16-17

God speaks to us through His Word by the Holy Spirit.

Easter Dawn Service

Earlier today the Armadale Districts Ministers Assoc held a dawn service in Minnawara Park in central Armadale commencing around 6am. The short service was attended by about 120 people from various churches in the area. Pastor Jim Bosma from the Armadale Congregational Church led the service and Rev Ben vander Klip from St Mary's Anglican gave the message on the purpose and then the implications of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Several other pastors assisted in the service. It was a good way to get together as a Christian community to celebrate Resurrection Sunday and watch the sun come over the Darling Scarp.

He is Risen, He is Risen indeed.
