Dear West View family
Welcome to worship on the first Sunday of Women’s Month. If you are a visitor, be at home in our midst.
Throughout August, we will be blessed to have female preachers bringing us God’s Word. Welcome to Rev Lea Marumo and Jean Geerthsen, who are preaching at the morning and evening services respectively. Lea is the minister of North Rand Methodist Church in Northriding, whilst Jean Geerthsen is Pastoral Assistant at Midstream Methodist Church.
Next Sunday’s 09h45 worship service is a Community Worship Service. There is no Children’s Church, and the service will be child friendly. The opportunity to worship together as a family across generations is always special.
I urge you all to join me in praying for our neighbour, Zimbabwe. Let us pray for a deepening of a just democracy, for peace that is based on tolerance and unity, and for leaders in Zimbabwe’s government, civil society and church. The late Trevor Huddlestone’s simple, yet powerful Prayer for Africa encapsulates our hopes for our continent:
God bless Africa,
guard her children,
guide her leaders,
and give her peace.
In faith, hope and love
