ADRA Meaningful gifts….

ADRA New Zealand

As the festive season is upon us, most people are already planning how they will spend time with their loved ones, what meals they will share and how many presents they will unwrap. Unfortunately, not everyone can enjoy and celebrate during this time as there are thousands of children and families living in despair. It is heartbreaking that so many people, right here in New Zealand and around the world live without the bare essentials such as food, clean water and shelter. This festive season help children and families THRIVE by giving a meaningful gift from the ADRA catalogue.

PS – For every gift you purchase online, you will receive an ADRA Christmas card you can either keep or gift to a friend.

Leaving Home?  Your New Home Is Ready!

Do you remember a time when you were going through something hard and were all alone?

This has been a very common experience for a lot of our young adults when they leave home for the first time to work or study.  Finding little to no support in a new centre, they quietly slip away from church and God.

But we passionately care about our young adults and want to ensure this is no longer their journey as they set off from home.

We now have a growing network of Adventist churches all across NZ who are working together to intentionally care for the tertiary students and young professionals who move to their centre.  It is exciting to see the desire, willingness and ability of so many churches to ensure young people are supported, nurtured and equipped for this major chapter of their lives.

Young adults, parents, teachers, pastors, youth leaders, and friends are now able to make contact with a church in a centre where a young person is thinking of going.

These churches are committed to using 7 healthy church principles (Christ-centered foundation, grace filled atmosphere, life groups, mentoring, intergenerational connections, family focus, and discipleship) which grow their ability to serve and share the everlasting Gospel in their context, and are particularly essential for supporting, equipping and empowering young adults.

Please support us in prayer as we continue adding willing and able churches in 2019 to the network of churches committed to ensuring young adults no longer slip through the cracks or fall off the grid.

Wherever you go, we have a home for you.

Bible Text Colouring Cards

South New Zealand Conference

Marcelle Kleinmuelman has designed 31 colouring cards that you can download for free. As part of a Craft and Pray initiative we’d like to invite you to prayerfully colour these cards for yourself or for someone that you would like to post them to. The bible texts chosen for these cards will take you through a journey of meditating on God’s character, His provision and care. May these strengthened your faith and may they bring joy to your heart.

Marcelle is the wife of a pastor and mother to four beautiful children. She has an insatiable need to create with her hands which in turn helps to keep her sane. A firm believer that God is the ultimate creator, that He has given us the ability to create, to provide us with a way to help ourselves to relax, calm and focus ourselves and draw us closer to Him. Being able to design these cards for others has been an absolute joy for Marcelle. Knowing that each of these verses shows the enduring love and support that God has for us and to have them shared with family, friends and even those we do not know is an awesome way to share God with them.
