january 2014 Hello and welcome to The Pentecostals of Sydney where you can experience new life in Christ! Welcome to 2014…. The General Conference in Melbourne was just outstanding. You need to make sure that you will not miss the next one which is in Sydney next year, so book the 2 – 7 Jan 2015 for you to attend. In closing the door to last year, it is important to leave the mistakes, disappointments and any other negativity there. However, we ought to value the lessons that we picked up and to rejoice in what God had accomplished through the Church. Last year we saw an increase of souls being born again with 70 Baptisms and even more receiving the Holy Spirit. This is a significant rise from last year and we take heart from God’s great blessings. This year, we want to reach more souls for Jesus and we believe we can see even more conversions in our city and beyond. Another highlight was how the Church willingly gave in times of need. When the Bundaberg church building was destroyed by flood, the saints of POS gave. We sent a couple of young men to help with the repairs. The spirit of compassion was evident through giving for other appeals such as the Philippines Typhoon victims and as per usual the consistent giving for our Home and Overseas Mission programs. The unity of the Brethren was never more evident than when we began our ReBuild project to renovate the Church. Many pledged their commitment to their Church. This year we believe for greater commitments as we see our renovations completed and our building reopened later this year. What did you learn from last year? How are you a little more mature and stronger as a Christian since the last 12 months? It’s been over a week since we started our BREAD Bible reading program. Along with the commitment to pray, drawing closer to God and being more involved, I am convinced that God will honour our efforts for Him by rewarding us with revival and the salvation of souls. So take up the challenge for this new year, there are endless possibilities that await our realisation. God told Joshua, in essence, that as far as you are willing to walk, that’s how much land you can have. How much of God you are willing to have this year, depends on how much you want. Greater things for 2014! Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. Josh 1:3 (KJV) !









God bless you,

Pastor Stan Harvey

New Life Journey We invite you to join NLJ; a teaching program conducted every Sunday morning at 10:30am, right after morning worship. These classes will cover questions you may have about doctrine, why we worship the way we do, what God really has in store for your life and how God’s love for you can conquer all. These classes are very beneficial to your Christian walk, so take your first steps with Jesus today!

ReWired Youth We understand that High School, Uni and Tafe are times of much change- Physical, Mental and even Spiritual. Whether you're the big man at school or the quiet one in the back of the class you have a place at Rewired Youth. Come along to a dynamic service on Friday nights at 7:30pm- with skits, games and a message aimed right at you, we guarantee you'll have a great time. We would love to have you!

Infants Ministry - The Ark We take children from 2-3years old in the mornings and 2-4year olds in the evening. The Infants Room is open from the end of Praise and Worship Service. In 'The Ark' we have a structured program from beginning to end. Our program consists of 4 components...Praise, Bible Story, Snack Time & Craft. The children learn about God in a safe and fun environment.

e-Connect Recently, we have started a new monthly email that keeps you informed about what is going on at the POS as well as suggesting new music and books. You are also introduced to a special volunteer in the church and much more. If you would like to join it scan the QR code or visit our website.

If you would like to join the Home Group nearest you please see one of our friendly hosts and they will assist you.

Other Ministries: Sunday School Sunday school operates every Sunday morning after worship beginning at 10:30am. We have a multitude of classes, which cater to children between the ages of 4 to 18. Classes are located upstairs so make sure your children are getting the most out of the their visit to the POS.

Life Studies Life Studies are an enjoyable, non-threatening way to learn more about the Bible. We can meet with you in your home, our home, or a coffee shop. The studies are less than an hour but have the power to change your life. Contact one of our hosts if you would like to start a Life Study.
