Church Family News

18th-31st October

The words “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead” (Romans 4 v23–24)

 

Dear friends

The life changing news of Paul's letter to the Romans keeps on coming. Just like Abraham, unrighteous believers in God's promises are made righteous in Christ! It humbles us all as grateful recipients, at the foot of His cross and entrance of His empty tomb!

This is a two week special of weekly news, given it's half term as of Monday 25th. 

Bye for now,

Adam
