Calling Mary, Martha and Esther… and you!

New Zealand Pacific Union Conference, Women's Ministries Department

You are just as unique as any of these women in the Bible, and like Esther, your time is now.  Your desires, fears, ambitions, and experience make you a significant member of our church community whose thoughts we value.

Your challenge is to take part in a very short, on-line survey of how we can make Women’s Ministries work for you, for your family and your church. Only 4 minutes of your time will do it. That’s quicker than making a cup of tea – actually, why not do it while relaxing with that cuppa?

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)

Conference Office Hours – Important Notice

Paul Devine, General Secretary, South New Zealand Conference

Dear Friends in Christ

We live in a world that increasingly reminds us that time is very short.  As you will be aware most of our office staff are part-time, which can mean that sometimes there is only one person in the office.  Recently there was a workman who came to the office that made the one lady in the office feel very uncomfortable.  We shared this concern with EXCOM and it was voted to extend our office hours Monday to Thursday but close on Friday.  While the team will be working longer on those days, their availability will remain the same, i.e. the office will open at 9:00 am and close at 5:00 pm.   Thank you for your understanding.

Also, can I please request that people planning to come to the office to phone first and make an appointment.  Because our role is people focussed there are times when we are not here and if we have only one lady in the office, it will be closed for her protection.

– Paul Devine, General Secretary, South New Zealand Conference

Pray for Five, Disciple One!

Yavanna Boulton, Evangelism Coordinator, South New Zealand Conference

The last command Jesus gave us while he walked on this earth was to go and make disciples of all nations, baptising and teaching them. This command was supported by the promise that He will always be with us, even to the end of the age (Matt 28:18-20).

To help us take up this challenge in a meaningful and manageable way, we are starting a Conference-wide initiative to pray for five people and to disciple one person. Each local church has been provided with cards and flyers to equip us to do this. Pastors will also be regularly checking in and initiating corporate prayer time for all the names on our cards.

It is our prayer that this initiative will continue to grow God’s ability to use our Church to bless our communities. Let us pray for even more wisdom and strength as we actively look for ways to be the hands and feet of Jesus. May we be about our Father’s business, loving and caring for those around us, and drawing them irresistibly to Jesus.

Creation Sabbath

General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

27 October 2018

When was the last time your church took time to specifically recognise God’s power and grace as Creator and Redeemer?

By designating the fourth Sabbath in October every year as Creation Sabbath, the Seventh-day Adventist Church is “acknowledging God as our Creator and the implications that this biblical teaching has for us . . . . to create a worldwide sense of unity in promoting this belief in a positive light.”

Everyone is invited to join Seventh-day Adventist churches worldwide in celebrating Creation Sabbath. For more information and to download resources go to adventist.org.nz/resource or creationsabbath.net

Spirit of Prophecy and Adventist Heritage Sabbath

General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

The Seventh-day Adventist Church was born after the Great Disappointment of October 22, 1844. On that day, we remember our roots and the heritage that the pioneers of the movement we belong to left us.

Each year on a Sabbath closest to October 22, Seventh-day Adventist churches all around the world celebrate the Adventist Heritage Sabbath.  Churches also use this day as an opportunity to see how God has led in the past and apply in their lives the lessons learned. It is also an opportunity to fellowship together. This year we are celebrating this special day on Sabbath, October 20.

You can access material and resources for the Adventist Heritage Sabbath at ellenwhite.org

You can watch and share the “Tell the world” movie.
