Just thinking…

Some comments that were left on our church Facebook Page last night: 'What a wonderful community spirit you all showed and shared. We were honoured and humbled by your kindness. Thank you, and be well' (Andrew Corner). 'You guys are wonderful! We had another superb year celebrating with you. Thank you so much Remuera Baptist' (Pip Walker). 'Thank you so very much. What a spectacular community event! (Catherine Harri). Last night was amazing, frantic, amazing, manic and amazing. Thank-you for all that you contributed in so many different ways. I looked around at the volunteers at the end of the night, and all of us were looking in need of a good bed and a sleep-in, but it was because we had given our all to our community; the comments above and the many, many comments given to me verbally reveal how much our efforts were appreciated. So, thank-you for your weariness because it means we have spent ourselves well to Glow for Jesus in our community. I am again incredibly proud to be a part of this church - this amazing bunch of disciples that Jesus has called together for the glory of his name. Kia ora, whānau.

In Him,
