Launch of Bible motto 2019

Today we launch our Bible motto card. There are three designs to choose from and they can be collected after each of the services. As we enter 2019 and a new chapter in the life of Christ Church we can be assured that God has a plan to prosper, to give us hope and a future. Please take one card and keep it in your wallets, purses or in your Bibles. Look at it often, share it with others and pray for our church and community that God will reveal His plans to us.
