This is the 7th in an 8-part series looking at the book of Ephesians. Today’s message is brought to us by Ramon Bruzzichessi from Grosvenor Church, Barnstaple. It’s based on Ephesians 5:15-6:9. If you have missed any of the previous messages, they can be found on our ‘current teaching series‘ page. Please join us for our Zoom session at 12 today. It will run from 12.00 to 12.30. We’ll be able to share how our week has been, anything that specifically spoke to you from the service and bring any points for prayer. The link details can be found in the messages section.

Mark took a tour of the new church build this week. It’s really coming on. Take a virtual tour with him, the video is just after the service…

The 3 questions that Mark asked at the end are written down near the Zoom information.

This week we look at the story of Joseph in prison – Making the most of your situation! You can find the story in your own bible in Genesis Chapter 39 -41

Words of Encouragement and Messages

Today is Thanksgiving Sunday, to give thanks for all that God has done so far for the new Church building. Have you read Barry’s recent blog post “taking shape”? It’s really coming on.

Thanksgiving Sunday

God has been amazingly faithful and generous to this Church. We want to acknowledge this and give the glory to Him. We have enough to finish the outside of the Hope Centre, and have some leftover for the next stage. Let’s see what we can give as a thanksgiving offering to God.

Please either give online, or post a cheque to Alan. Please reference any payments, “building fund”. Details can be found on our “giving page”

Zoom Chat today @ 12 noon

Please join us after the service at 12noon for a coffee and chat.

Questions for this week’s Zoom. Mark is planning on hosting:

  • What sorts of things do good, healthy families do together? Try to think of as many as possible…
  • How could we creatively re-imagine church so that it’s more like a good, healthy family that’s ready to go and ready to grow?
  • What challenges you when you think about the church as actually being God’s real family, not just being a bit like a family?

DCF Church is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
