The conference theme is being “Rooted in Christ”. The main text is Colossians 2:6-7. The theme is aimed at the empowerment of our members and pastors on how to deepen our relationship with Christ in such a way that we remain strong in the face of many challenges that come our way. Plant roots have four primary functions. These are (i) absorption of water and minerals, (ii) anchoring or fixing the plant body firmly to the ground, (iii) transportation of water and minerals to the stem of the pant and (iv) holding the soil together.
In Psalm 1:3, the Psalmist likens a blessed person to a fruitful tree planted by the stream of water. It is expected that Children of God should be firmly anchored in Christ, that they should continually feed from God’s word, share Christ with others and keep their faith intact.
We will also have PCD sessions that will be focused on those issues that are necessary for our spiritual growth. Pastors and members are welcome. The PCD sessions will cover “Prayer” presented by Suzette Hattingh, “Succession” by Dr. Anthony Jacobs. “Church Planting” by Danie Vermeulen and “Physical Health” by Dr. Mike Smit. We will also include a session focused on the needs of Pastor’s wives.
I am urging you to do everything in your power to attend this important event.
