Creative All-Ages Outdoor Praying

Here’s some ideas to get us started:

  • All together:  let’s dedicate this time to Him, thanking Him that we can be with Him anywhere,anytime–like now and here!

 

  • In a pair: look for an area, a location or a landmark and thank God as you make your way to it.  Thank Him specifically for who He is, what He’s done.

  • on your own, or as a family: walk (or run!) to another location and when you get there ask Him for something for yourself, your family, neighbourhood and city.   This can be quick and fun–why not try just blurting out a phrase?  It doesn’t need to be formal.  i.e. “sleep!”, “grades!”, “healed depression!”.  He knows what we mean before we even ask.  For example, kids run to the slide and decide what you’ll pray.  Then pray it out on your way down the slide!

 

  • your own idea:  In the flow, try your own fun and informal way to pray on the move

 

  • Together again to finish:  Any prayers you overhead from others inspire you?  Want to repeat a prayer you heard from one of the kids to cultivate your child-likeness?  Go for it!

CLC’s New Shape Leaders

Posted

Filed under leadership, prayer

Join us on Sunday 11th September at St. Andrew’s Church Hall at 3pm and help us commission our new CLC Leaders.  There are three groups that represent our new teams as we look ahead in this new era of ours:

CLC Leadership Team (LT) 

is Kevin, Tom and Lyn.  Kevin leads the team with direction, vision and ideas.  Lyn helps practically, runs the hospitality side of CLC (crucial because that means eating together!) and she keeps an eye on us pastorally. Tom is new to our LT so we’re still figuring out specific responsibilities he’ll want.  But we have known for years his gift for wisdom and his optimistic and faithful perspective. Please pray for our new team to gel and find our place to enjoy leading CLC!  See Number 27:18, Ephesians 4:11, 1 Tim 5:17, 1 Tim 2:1-3

 

CLC Children Team

Natalie and Luke have a heart for our Children to meet God, to know Him and to worship Him from a young age.   Pray for them as He gives them vision and energy to lead us in serving our youngsters.  We have always given our CLC children the best!  see 2 Tim 3:14-15, Matthew 21:16, Matthew 18:10, Mark 10:13-16, Prov 22:6,  Deut 6:7

 

CLC Trustee Team – Finance & CLC Charity 

Lucy and Luke run our finances and trust on a day to day basis, while Trevor gives us a good perspective as a fellow member of the Plumbline family yet an outside CLC view.  Tim, as our founding leader also adds his Plumbline perspective experience and insight as our fourth trustee. see 1 Cor 12:12-26, Matthew 6:24, 1 Tim 6:17-19.

 

Please pray for us, as we step up to serve you and Him and invest in His amazing growing Kingdom!  Tim and Roy will be joining us in their capacaties as Plumbline family members who support and give leadership to our leadership.

 

love,

KC

 

 

CLC Prayer Week

Filed under prayer

Welcome to our Autumn week of prayer.  As a church we believe prayer is accessible and changes things.  Prayer is more natural than you can imagine because God is a God who talks, and so do we.  Research has found that on average woman speak 20,000 words a day, men 7,000 words a day!! We’re a good match!

The theme of the week is ‘God at Work’. Each day we shall be praying into a different aspect of the way Father works in the earth.  Praying for more of a Him, for His kingdom to come and His will be done.

‘I  come that you may have life and life to the full!”

Wherever we are on Thursday, let’s pray.

How we can pray:
Start by thanking God for what He is doing.  Then take some time to praise Him for who He is.

Then let’s pray into these three things:

In Christ: For the Holy Spirit to fill us.  His transforming presence to be what marks us out.  Pray Haggai 2:1-9.

In Community:  Our Small Groups. Relationships, Provision in finance and 3 new people joining us.

In Mission:  for a significant finish to Alpha this month and pray for those on the course for openness.  For Christ’s kingdom to come, to break out and bring life in Kings Hedges, in the University, in Cambourne, in Romsey, among young people.

Hope in our city and work places.

In Christ: For strength and deepening reality with God for us all.  Pray: Habukkuk 3:17-19 &  Ephesians 1:13-14.

In Community:  Our Small Groups. Relationships, Provision in finance and 3 new people joining us.
