Thank for all who have been praying for our time in the US. We have been all over the US and our schedule has been exceptionally busy, but it has been a great experience with our supporting churches and families. Please pray for recent and upcoming events:
Come along if you can on October 8th-12th with missionaries from all across the world. It’s a great chance for God to expand our vision and burden our hearts for the world around us. Russ will be speaking on Sunday 12 October during the morning services.
This should be a wonderful time with the church family.
Come along if you have the time.
Regardless of what you do for a living, you may ask ‘How do I live as a Christian at work and how would I talk with work colleagues about Jesus?’
The Living for Jesus course is for you …and here is what it is about and how you can be involved.
The course introduces some basic Biblical concepts in being a Christian at work. Encourages people to see the opportunities for service in the workplace. Motivates workers to pray for their colleagues at work.
Living for Jesus consists of three 45 minute studies… 1. Working for God's glory... being godly at work + living lives worth questioning & giving answers worth hearing
2. An eye for the harvest... seeing the workplace as a mission field
3. Speaking of God's mercy... talking about Jesus at work
Audience: Work colleagues, small groups and/ or anyone keen to share their faith at work

When: First three Thursdays in November: 6, 13 & 20 November

Lord of the Lens: Can we find God in film? - Video link
Thank you for Saylorville Church team letting me come to talk about God & film
The Bible and film – many people might say these two things would be a contradiction in terms. If this is your fall back position, you are missing the point and missing the impact that film has on our culture. In this visual era, many think they go hand in hand.
Watch the discuss and the intersection of Christianity and cinema.
Some of the topics that we will cover: The story, the line and the opportunity
What this session ‘is not’ 1. Convincing you to watch film 2. A debate if people should go to the cinema
The point of this talk is for those interested in how to engage people with the Gospel through cinema.
