july 2013 Hello and welcome to The Pentecostals of Sydney where you can experience new life in Christ! Encounters With Jesus Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to meet Jesus face to face? As a young Christian, I had often pondered this thought and then tried to imagine such a glorious event. Though no longer walking in his humanity on this earth yet by reading the New Testament, particularly the Gospels, we can piece together an idea of what that might have resembled through the personal encounters that Jesus had with individuals of varying walks of life. We see him interacting with the sick and demonized, the rich and poor, the educated and ignorant, the proud and humble. Just about the entire cross section of society had some dealings with Christ and how he talked, ministered, blessed, healed, rebuked and forgave serves as an example to us believers today as to how he would interact with us who might find ourselves in similar conditions and situations.

Spirit of Jesus Christ dwelling in us. God’s desire is to interact with his creation. Just as he had done when he would come to commune with Adam and Eve in the Garden, God seeks fellowship with us at all times and regardless of our circumstances. I believe that when we understand how Jesus encountered with people, we can understand how He approaches us and how we in turn learn to interact with Him. This month I am continuing my series; Encounters with Jesus. Utilize these lessons to launch you into a deeper understanding of Jesus and our relationship with Him. “The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because in neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:17-18 NKJV

God bless you, Pastor Stan Harvey

Though we no longer know Christ after the flesh but after the Spirit, that same Holy Spirit is the

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!

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.

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.

Fijian Ministry We are blessed at the POS to have a large population of Fijians attend our assembly. In order to reach out to the Fijian community we have a Fijian Ministry. Once a month there is a Fijian Speaking Service at 3pm on a Sunday. This service includes preaching, worship and fellowship following. They also gather monthly for prayer and evangelism.

The children learn about God in a safe and fun environment.

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.
